After waiting to hear from you or your Nigerian partners for a long time now, I
decided to make this direct approach to you in other not to let it be as if I
have anything in mind against you. I do not know if you have asked yourself why
each time the release of these fund is approved, all of a sudden, the payment
will be stopped or one problem or the other will come up. If you have not asked
this question or you do not know, this is an opportunity for me to tell you.
Some time ago, your Nigerian friend I mean the people that introduced you to
the project approached me through my dear Wife who works with the federal
Ministry of Finance and requested me to assist them conclude a money transfer
deal they had with you, they requested me to assist them by removing the
original contractors name, company's name and bank particulars from Central
bank of Nigeria (CBN) vetting computer and replacing them with your name and
your bank details in order to make you appear as the rightful beneficiary of
this funds. I agreed on condition that they will pay me $300,000 as soon as your
name appears as the beneficiary. I did as agreed and demanded to be paid but
your friends started telling me stories. They even told me that you promise to
send money to me. Do you know that up till now, I have not received a single
cent from them and have not set my eyes on any of them?
Based on their attitude, I decided to stop the funds release movement because I
cannot be denied of my right in my own office considering the risk as it might
affect my job. Secondly, I know the source of the funds and you did not execute
any contract in Nigerian, although I am the only person privileged to know this
information and it is a fact. Why I am making this clear to you is that I can
see that you are still making efforts spending money in order to conclude this
project. Now I am ready to forget the past, I do not need the $300,000 any
longer from you but a share of 25% of the total sum. I need your assurance that
those your colleagues will be totally keep out of this transaction, I know that
none of them is aware of this transaction after trying their best to conclude it
without my consent.
Finally, I need your promise that no official of the Central bank of Nigeria
will be aware of my involvement in this regard. Now re-assure me that you will
be willing to offer me the 25% of the fund, that you will assist my wife and
personal assistant Establish a foreign account in your country where my share
will be lodged.
If you are ready to conclude this business with me, you can contact me
immediately on my private phone no 234-80-545 30377 So that we can have chat
over this issue once and for all so that we can move forward. But if the reverse
is the case, do not bother yourself to reach me.
