EXTREMELY URGENT



Dear Friend,





PLEASE ASSIST ME TO FINALIZE THIS TRANSACTION:

marketing firm while searching for a reliable and reputable person to

handle this transaction which involves the transfer of the sum of

Thirty Three million United States dollars (US$33 Million) only, to a

reliable account abroad, Your role is important due to the fact that

there are lots of restrictions binding civil servants in my country,

THAT WE AWARDED YEARS AGO AND THE CONTRACTOR HAVE EXECUTED THE

CONTRACT AND HANDED OVER TO NNPC AND HAVE RECEIVED HIS FULL PAYMENT.

will stand as one of our contractor who have executed a contract here

in Nigeria and the beneficiary of the US$33million that is ready for

payout, Note that the reason for the transfer of these funds into your

account is because of our incapability as Government officials to own

a foreign account.



All the necessary documentation for the facilitation and approval of

this fund in your favor will be carefully taken good care of hence we

are involved. I am assuring you a risk free transaction as all the

modalities for the smooth transfer of this fund into your Account have

been planned; you have the opportunity to discuss your percentage (%)

/ (success fee) as we have mapped out 20% for your assistance.
