From The Desk Of Reverend.Peter Williams .
I know this mail may come as surprise to you,since we do not know ourselves or have any previous
contact before now,my purpose of writting you is this.
We believe that you would be in a position to help us in our bid to transfer the sum of
TWELVE MILLION FIVE HUNFRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($12.5m) into a foreign account.
We are members of a special committee for budget and planning of the ministry of petroleum,this
committee is principally concern with contract appraisals and approvals in order of priorities
as regards capital project of the federal governmentof Nigeria.
With our positions,we have successfully secured for ourselves the sum of thirty-eight million
five hundred thousand united state dollars ($12.5m).
The present government in my country are seeking the surport of foreign government,so they gave
directive to all federal parastatals to compile and settle all foreign contractors being owed
for contract that has been executed,so our plan is to include the name that you will provide us,
as one of the contractors being owed in my corporation,the nigerian national petroleum corporation (NNPC).
What we need from you is:-
(1)a company name or a name of which to use as the company that did execute the contract and an address.
(2)Telephone and Fax Numbers.
It has been agreed that the owner of the account will be compensated with 20% of the remitted
funds,we will keep 75%,while 5% has been set aside to offset expenses and pay the necessary taxes.
It may also interest you to know that two years ago similar transaction was carried out with one
Mr George Brooks of ( BROGE INTERNATIONAL TRADING CORPORATION) at number 135, east 57th street,
28TH floor,new york 10022 with telephone
(212)308-7788 and telex number 6731689,after the agreement
between both partners in which he was to take 20% of the remitted fund (fifteen million united state
dollars $15.000.000.)was duly transferd into his account only to be disappointed on our arrival in new york
as we were told that Mr Brooks was no longer on that address,while his telephone number had been re-allocated to somebody else,that is how we lost our money to Mr Brooks.
This time around we need a more reliable and trusted person or a reputed company to transact this project
with hence this proposal to you,so if you can prove yourself to be trustworthy ready to partake in this project
then we are prepare to do business with you.
What we need from you is the assurance that you will let us have our share after the transfer of the fund
($12.5million)into your account.
If this proposal satisfies you,please contact me through this
private email address so we can advice you
on modalities of the transaction,and note that all modalities has been worked out and once started will take
two weeks with the absolute support of all concerned.
Note that this transaction is 100% risk free and totally safe now or after the fund transfer to your account.
Please treat as urgent and confidential as i look forward to your reply.
