Dear Good Friend
I am Dr.Ken Obiorah, a Chartered accountant by profession working
with the Federal Ministry Of Agriculture in Nigeria. Perhaps you
might be wondering why you have received this mail, but I can assure
you that at the end, we both will be having discussion as to whatever
profitable business(es) we should invest our respective share(s) in. I
was assigned by two of my colleagues to seek for a foreign partner who
will assist us in providing a convenient foreign account in any
designated bank abroad for a transfer of US$52,750,000.00 pending on
our arrival in your country for utilization and disbursement with the
owner of the account.
This amount results from a deliberate inflation of the value of a
contract awarded by our Ministry (The Federal Ministry of Agriculture,
F.M.A) to an expatriate company who supplied Agricultural equipment to
the Ministry. The contract has been executed and payment made to the
ORIGINAL contractor, remaining the over-invoiced amount of
US$52,750,000.00.which we want to transfer the fund out of the country
for disbursement among ourselves (i.e You being the foreign
counterpart, I and my other two colleagues). The transfer of this
money can only be possible with your help being a foreigner who will
be presented as the beneficiary of the fund.
As Civil servants, we are not allowed to operate foreign accounts,
and this is the reason why I decided to contact you. We have agreed
that if you/your company can act as the beneficiary of this fund
(US$52,750,000.00 million), 15% of the total sum will be for you for
assisting us from start to finish in this venture while 85% will be
reserved for us.
We hereby solicit for your assistance in providing your convenient
banking coordinate in a designated bank in your country where this
fund would be transferred. We intend coming over on the completion of
this transfer to secure our own share of the money.
Please note that we have been careful and have made all arrangements
towards the success and smooth transfer of the fund to your account
before I contacted you. For security reasons and confidentiality of
this transaction, we demand that you should not expose this proposal
and the entire transaction to anybody.
We are putting so much trust in you with the hope that you would not
betray us or sit on this money when it is finally transferred into
your account. Be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, indicate your interest by
sending your response via an email to me including your working
Note that the particular nature of your company’s business is not
necessary needed for this transaction. if this transaction interests
you, your urgent response will be appreciated.
In addition, there are some faceless beings in my country that are
making use of top government official names to swindle money from
innocent citizens around the globe and that includes my name. You can
confirm by searching the name of our Central Bank of Nigeria Governor
in person of Godwin Emefiele; you will see that his name is part of
the scam list meanwhile we are innocent officials completely unaware
of the situation happening of which after utilizing their names and
profile, they will have uploaded on the internet in order to ruin
their reputation making the citizens believe that the officials are
