ATTN: Dear Contractor
Forgive this unusual manner of contacting you, but this particular letter is of
exceptional and very private nature. There is absolutely going to be a great
doubt and distrust in your heart in respect of this email, coupled with the fact
that, so many miscreants have taken possession of the Internet to facilitate
their nefarious deeds, thereby making it extremely
for genuine people to get attention and recognition. There is no way
for me to know whether I will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write
and reach out to you.
I want to use this opportunity to bring to your knowledge that after our
verification exercise we found out that you did not execute any contract here in
Nigeria and we have also gotten information on how your details got into the
You were contacted by some of the officials working in our ministry who
proposed to you that you would be given some good amount of money if you claim
to be a contractor with the federal government by claiming a completed contract
which you did not execute.
Let me use this opportunity to inform you once more that the plan was well
arranged. The payment advice in your favor is on record in our system unpaid,
and you are seen as the contractor who is to receive this unpaid fund.
I must not fail to let you understand one very important thing, and
that is the fact that this business has gotten to a stage where you must work
hand in hand with me in order to receive this fund or else you forget about it
Let me first of all inform you that All you need to do is to accept my offer
and you will gain all you have spent in the course of this business and good
interest for yourself.
My offer is this: Since I am the only person who is in the position to effect
the release of this fund, you have to follow my instructions carefully.
First of all, I will authorize the release of this fund to you, but it will be
done in batches.
Secondly, any amount you receive in your account, you have to send 50% of the
total amount to me immediately and keep 50% for yourself.
Finally, let me reiterate that I can make this payment come to you as quick
NOTE: The reason why I want to effect this payment in batches is because I do
not have a hundred percent trust in you and will like to be in a safe side by
not authorizing the release of the entire money to an unknown person whom I
cannot trace or control. I hope you understand what I mean?
As soon as you prove your credibility after the first transaction, I will
increase the amount to be remitted into your account in the second batch and
other subsequent ones respectively until the whole amount is completed.
Should you agree with my terms, I would appreciate if you reply this mail as
soon as possible or you can call me on my direct number for us to commence
without further delay.
My direct email address: email@example.com
I await your timely response.
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....
