BUSINESS PROPOSAL: TRANSFER OF US$ 14.3 M (FOURTEEN MILLION,THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND USD.).
First, I must solicit your trust and strictest confidence in this transaction; this is by nature of the top-secret information I am about to divulge to you. You were introduced to us by a mutual acquaintance from the Saudi Arabia Chamber of Commerce, Foreign Trade Division, who does not know of the nature of what I am about to introduce to you. He only knows that I have some funds to invest abroad, hence he recommended you.
I am the Director of Engineering & Project of the KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA MINISTRY OF PETROLEUM AND MINERAL RESOURCES in Riyadh, SAUDI ARABIA . I am seeking your assistance to enable me transfer the sum of US$14,300,000.00 into your private company account for mutual benefits. This money came about as a result of a contract for the turn-around maintenance of oil pipelines, executed on behalf of my Ministry KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA MINISTRY OF PETROLEUM AND MINERAL RESOURCES, in the year 2004. This contract was officially assigned to be awarded and executed by two foreign contractors at the tune of US$105,500,000.00, but in the course of my negotiation, I bargained with only one foreign contractor, a Bulgarian firm which now executed the contract at the cost ofUS$91.2000.000.00. Thus leaving the remaining US$14.3M floating in the escrow account at a financial institution abroad to the benefits of we the three members of the contract award panel unknown to the contractor
and any other person in my Ministry. This contract has been satisfactorily executed and inspected as the Bulgarian firm is presently securing his payment from my Ministry. It is however to this effect that I seek your maximum assistance and approval to present your company name alongside with the Bulgarian contractor as the second foreign contractor to enable me transfer the difference (US$14.3M) into your account for further investment depending on your advice. On actualization of the transaction, the funds will be shared thus:
1. 30% of the money go to you for acting as the beneficiary of the funds.
2. 10% for reimbursement to both parties for incidental expenses that may be incurred in the course of the transaction for insurance phone bills, documentation etc.
3. 60% to we three members of the Contract Award Panel of KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA MINISTRY OF PETROLEUM AND MINERAL RESOURCES.
All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for the smooth actualization of the transaction within fourteen working days of commencement after receipt of the following information by fax: Your company? Name. Address. Phone/Fax number and activities. Also, if we opt for electronic transfer only other than payment by solar bank draft or cash call programme, then your bank account particulars. The above information will enable me make the application and lodge claims to the concerned Ministries in favour of your company or name and it is pertinent to state here that this deal is entirely based on trust and the fear of Allah/God. If you are able to handle, feel free to reach me by return email: firstname.lastname@example.org Also furnish me with your own phone and fax numbers, as I will be sending you immediately I receive your positive response more details information with the text of application form to breakdown explaining comprehensively what is require of you.
