Request for Confidential
I know that this will come to you as a surprise since
we don't know each other before. For the purpose of introduction, I was a silent
business partner to the Former CEO (Tony Hayward) of British Petroleum (BP), in
United Kingdom. After due deliberation , I decided to contact you for your
assistance in standing as benefactor to the sum of US$28.5 Million (Twenty eight
Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) equivalent because, I and
two other colleagues are currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose

associate/receiver. By virtue of my political position, I cannot acquire this
money with my name. For this reason I took it upon myself to look for an

co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer from The United Kingdom
to any of your nominated account, while the remaining 80% belongs to me . You
will be free to take out your commission immediately after the money hits your
country. Since my objective is to invest the money in a foreign country, it
would be appreciated if you could also help me with advice and direction on
investing into profitable/lucrative ventures in your country for an additional
However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to further
assist us with investing the money, we can end our cooperation after you make
available to us our part of the money.
The transaction, although discrete, is
legitimate and the money will be transferred successfully with all necessary
back-up documents showing legitimate source/origin of fund.
will be effected within a period not longer than two weeks as soon as we reach
an agreement and you furnish me with a suitable response indicating your
interest for processing the transfer to my private email:
email@example.com . I plead with you on one issue, whether you are
interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to anyone else. I
confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to us or
yourself. Please, your immediate response will be highly appreciated whether you
are interested or not.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
