Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.
If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage
to read more about 419 fraud.

Chairman, Tender Board,
Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)
I am Mr.Ugochukwu Nwaoma, Executive Director, Contracts. with the Niger Delta
Development Commission (NDDC) and I head the Finance and Administration/Chairman
tenders board in charge of Contract Awards Review and Payment Approvals (CRPAC). I want to ask you to quietly look For A Reliable And Honest Person Who Will Be Capable And Fit To Provide Either An Existing Bank Account Or To Set Up A New Bank Account Immediately To Receive and secure some Money on my behalf. Even An Empty Account Can Serve.
I came to know of your address in my search for a reliable person to handle a very confidential transaction based on unflinching trust as we have not met before. This transaction involves the transfer of huge sum of foreign exchange to a foreign account.
There were a series of contracts executed by a Consortium of Multinationals and Local Contractors in favor of ((NDDC) among which are:
(1) The expansion and rehabilitation of Lot1 Blocks A and AB at Mein G/S Burutu in Delta State.8.2Million United States dollars
(2) Constructions and rehabilitation blocks of classrooms/construction of boreholes (water projects) in Bayelsa State.
(3) The construction of storage tanks and maintenance and servicing of old ones for Petroleum Products Storage (Depots) 20 Million United States dollars
(4) The construction of Forcados Hospital Jetty,Offshore facility/construction of Road networks and Electrification of the Niger-Delta areas to the National grid-27.6Million. United States dollars
The original value of these contracts was deliberately over-invoiced in the sum of USD Eleven Million, Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States dollars by this committee
(CRPAC) during the awards of the various contracts.
This sum11,650,000.00 United States dollars has now been approved for payment by this committee (CRPAC) and is now ready to be transferred by this Commission to the account of an individual and or company which the CRPAC presents as the beneficiary, since the
company that actually executed these contracts has been fully paid their fund and the projects have been officially commissioned.
Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account for subsequent disbursement on our behalf, since we as appointed Tender Board members and also serving in a sensitive foreign payment approval committee (CRPAC) are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Tender Board Act 1999) from opening or operating foreign account and or dealing in foreign exchange in our names.
Needless to say, the trust reposed in you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed to offer you 35% of the transferred sum; while 5% shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) accrued between both parties in the course of the transaction. The balance will be put into real Estate investment in your country.
You must however note that this transaction is subject to the following terms and conditions:
a) Our conviction of your transparency, honesty and diligence
b) That you would treat this transaction with utmost secrecy and confidentiality
c) That you have an unflinching trust in us, and our ability to complete all official processes with your co-operation.
(d) That the funds would be transferred to an ordinary account that you have total control over.
Modalities have been worked out (secretly) at the highest levels of the relevant government departments involved and the Country's apex bank for the immediate transfer of funds within 14 working days subject to your satisfaction of the above stated terms. Our assurance is that your role is risk-free. To accord this transaction the legality it deserved and for mutual security of the fund, the whole approval procedures will be officially and legally processed with your name or the name of any company you may nominate as the bonafide beneficiary,
as in an ideal situation.
This matter should therefore be treated with utmost secrecy and urgency.
Kindly expedite action by contacting me via a return mail, indicating your interest in this transaction and kindly include your fax and telephone numbers so that I can explain further clearly .
I am urgently waiting your reply, as payment to foreign contractors has to be made before this administration that appointed my board leaves office on 29 may 2007,
Chairman, Tender Board (NDDC)
