Subject: HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
Comliments of the year. Please pardon me for using this medium to reach you which was due to the urgency of my
proposal.I am the Chief economic adviser to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Umaru Musa Ya
Adua. I handle sensitive and special projects for the President.
Going to four months now, the President has been sick and he is hospitalised at the king Faisal hospital in Saudi
Arabia and his condition is very critical. In view of this development, I am trying to protect myself and my family
incase of any eventuality, though one is not praying for such, but assuming it comes up since we are humans, and
there is a change in Government, there is no guarrantee that the new Government will retain my job.
Following the laws, any unspent funds allocated for special projects and ministries at the end of every fiscal year
are usually returned to the treasury. When the President left for this treatment and based on the fact that I was a
member of his kitchen cabinet who knows his actual health condition, I decided to keep a substantial part of the
unspent funds which is Eighteen million, five hundred thousand United States dollars ($18.5m).
As long as the appropriation bill from the National Assembly has been passed into law and sent to the President for
his signature which has been done, everything about unspent funds has been concluded and forgotten.
My reasons for contacting you is to assist me in moving this fund to your account in your country so that we shall
invest it together under your management and you will still have a substantial percentage for your assistance. You
may be wondering why I contacted you, communications has made the world a global village and the fact that I am a
target to most of the politicians because I stepped on their toes, it will be dangerous for me to deal with anyone
within here. As I am writing this, the Vice President has now assumed full executive powers to act on his behalf and
he immediately re-deployed the Attorney general and minister of justice, who knows the next person to go.
Have you heard the story of Bank chief executives who stole depositors funds to the tune of billions. Some have ran
away and some are being held by security operatives. Though i am part of the system, I must confess, it is a total
failure and i must act now.
I can send you clips and let you do your own independent investigation to confirm my story. Meanwhile, I have
successfully moved the funds to Accra Ghana to make sure that there will be no trace and if you have to come, then
we shall meet in Ghana and not here.Above all, this is a highly confidential letter and I crave your indulgence to
keep it so.
I look forward to your positive response if you wish to assist me for further details.
