Jag hoppas innerligt att ingen skall gå på dessa erbjudanden om
fantastiska summor, vanligtvis från någon som utger sig för att ha
anknytning till nuvarande eller tidigare regering i t.ex. Nigeria,
Lagos, Elfenbenskusten eller Togo. Vilket land det är spelar väl ingen

I am Dr. Mohammed Azeez Bank Manager OF Eco Bank Ltd,. TOGO.
I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On December 6, 1999, a Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the TOGO
printon and milton, Mr.Brian Claude made a numbered time (Fixed)
Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$30,000,000.00, (Thirty
Million, us Dollars) in my branch.
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address
but got no reply. After a month,we sent a reminder and finally we
discovered from his contract employers, the TOGO printon and
milton that Mr.Brian Claude died from an automobile accident.
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a
WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that
Mr.Brian Claude did not declare any next of kin or relations in all
his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my
Bank. This sum of US$30,000,000.00 has carefully been moved out of my
bank to a security company for safekeeping.
No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to TOGO Law,
at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the
ownership of the LOME TOGO Government if nobody applies to claim the

FROM THE DESK OF:
FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA
CONTRACT REVIEW PANEL
REQUEST FOR YOUR URGENT CO-OPERATION/ASSISTANCE
I am a member of a special Government Committee set up for the Review
and Award of contracts by the Department of Petroleum and Mineral
Resources. Our status rank from Ministerial post down to
Director-Generals. This Committee was principally mandated by the past
Military Government to review the bogus and over-inflated contracts
awarded since 1993 to May 1998, under the regime of Late General Sani
Abacha who died in office in June 1998.
In the course of our duty, we were able to recover about
US$1,380,000,000.00(One Billion, Three Hundred and Eighty Million
States Dollars) out of which we have used our good offices to set
aside the sum of US$15,000,000.00 for our utilization. However, as
serving Civil Servants, our Code of Conduct Laws strictly prohibits us
from owning or operating a foreign account, hence we decided to
contact you and ask for your assistance.
Together with some of the top officials of the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and the Federal Ministry of Finance, we
plan to transfer this amount of money into an oversea account by
awarding a non-existent contract from the NNPC to you, to perfect the
transfer. What we need from you, is to provide a very vital account
into which the Funds will be transferred.
The trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous, hence in return
we have agreed to offer you 15% of the transferred sum, while 5% shall
be set aside as incidental expenses (both internal and external)
incurred between the parties, in the course of the whole transaction.
You will be mandated to remit the balance to other accounts in due
You must note however that this transaction is subject to the
following terms and conditions:
a) Our conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence.
b) That you will treat this transaction with utmost secrecy and
c) That the funds would be transferred to an interest-bearing account
where the incidence of taxation would not exert a heavy toll.
It may interest you to know that in 1995, a similar transaction was
carried out with one Signore Paolo Luigi, a Director of Milano
Construczione S.P.A.Z. in Treviso-Italy. After the agreement between
us in which he was to take 10% of the total sum, 80% for us and 10%
for taxes and miscellaneous, the documents were signed by him and the
funds was duly transferred into his account. We were disappointed on
our arrival in Italy to discover that Signore Paolo Luigi was no where
to be found. This was how we lost a huge sum of US$11.25 Million to an
Italian whom we thought was reliable.
This time around, we need a more reliable and trustworthy person to do
business with, hence this letter to you. So if you can prove yourself
trusted and are interested in this deal, then we are prepared to do
business with you.
If this proposal satisfies you, kindly include your telephone and fax
numbers in your response to enable us send you additional information/documents
Please kindly treat as urgent and strictly confidential. I honestly
assure you that this transaction is 100% hitch-free and legal.
I look forward to your urgent reply and thanking you for your
