CHAIRMAN CONTRACT AWARD COMMITTEE
LAGOS - NIGERIA
REQUEST FOR URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS
RELATIONSHIP IN RESPECT OF
THE TRANSFER OF US$30,000,000.00 (THIRTY MILLION
UNITED STATES DOLLARS
I, on behalf of my other colleagues from
different Federal Government of Nigeria owned parastatals decided to solicit
your assistance as regards the transfer of the above stated amount into your
bank account. This fund arose from the over-invoicing of various contracts
awarded in my parastatal to certain foreign contractors sometime ago.
We as holders of official positions in our various parastatals, were
mandated by this new civilian government to scrutinize all payments made
to certain foreign contractors by the past military government, and we
discovered that some of the contracts they executed were grossly
over-invoiced, either by omission or commission. Also, we discovered that the
sum of $35,000,000.00 (Thirty-Five million American Dollars only) was lying in
a suspense account, although the foreign contractors were fully paid their
entitlements after executing the said contracts.
We all agreed that the over-invoiced amount be transferred (for our own
use) into a bank account provided by a foreign partner, as the code of conduct
of the Federal civil service does not allow us to operate foreign accounts.
However, we have succeeded in transferring some of these monies, precisely
US$5M (five million American Dollars only) into a foreign account in GENEVA
(SWITZERLAND) last week, but unfortunately the provider of the account has
severed all forms of contacts with us as he has refused to adhere to
earlier mutual agreement insisting that the total amount be paid into
his nominated bank account before disbursement will take effect. If for
US$5.Million (Five million only) we are not compensated, how can one guarantee
full compensation on remittance of the balance of US$30 million (Thirty
million American dollars only).
We are therefore seeking your assistance based on the balance amount of
US$30 Million which can be speedily processed and fully remitted into your
nominated bank account. On successful remittance of the fund into your
account, you will be compensated with 25% of the amount for assistance and
services and 5% set aside for expenses contingency while 70% is for me
and my colleagues.This transaction is closely knitted and in view of our
SENSITIVE POSITION we cannot afford a slip, I assure you that this transaction
is 100% risk free. We will avail you with our identities as regards our
respective offices when relationship is fully established and smooth operation
I am at your disposition to entertain any question(s) from you in respect
of this transaction, so, contact me immediately through my e-mail or the above
telephone numbers for further information on the
Dr Idris Obaseki.
