Firstly, I must solicit your strictest confidentiality in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL.
Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. We have decided to contact you first by your email due to the urgency of this transaction, as we have been reliably informed that it will take at least two to three weeks for a normal post to reach you. So we decided it is best using the email.
Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. I am Dr. IIIIIII, a director general in SSSSSSSSSS and I head a Six-man tender board in charge of Contracts Awards and payment Approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very Confidential Business Transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account requiring maximum confidence.
However, i and my colleagues are top officials of the Government ; our duties include evaluation,vetting, approval for payment of contract jobs done for the VVVVVVVVV, etc. In order to commence this business, we solicit for your assistance to enable us transfer into your account the said funds.
The source of this funds were gotten from an Over-Invoiced Government Contract during the last
military regime here in LLLLLLLLL. The excess of the funds, Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$12.5Million) is what my colleagues and i have decided to transfer into a safe and reliable account for disbursement amongst all.
Reasons, being due to the fact that as Civil Servants, the laws of my country, prohibits us "Civil Servants" from owning foreign accounts and moreso, as members of this panel, we cannot do this by ourselves.
In the light of this, my colleagues and i have agreed that if you/your company can act as the beneficiary of this funds on our behalf, you or your company will retain 20% of the total amount of US$12,500,000 00).
Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free, as all documentation for success will be duly procured, and we hope to conclude the business in Seven (7) Bank working days from the date of receipt of the necessary information and requirement from you which will enable us commence this transaction fully.
I will bring you into the complete picture of the transaction when I have heard from you.
Thank you and God bless.
