419 SCAM / EMAIL SCAM
From: Tobi Briggs
Subject: Honest and Trust
After due deliberation with my colleagues, I decided to forward to you this proposal, we want a reliable and trustworthy person who could assist us to transfer the sum of US$8.5M ( Eight Million, Five hundred thousand United States Dollars) only into his account.
This fund resulted from an over-invoiced bill from a contract awarded by us under the budget, allocated to my ministry and the bill was approved for payment by the concerned ministries, the contract has been executed, Commissioned and the contractor has been paid his actual cost for the contract. We are now left with the balance of US$8.5M as the over-invoiced amount, which we have deliberately over estimated/ inflated for our own use. But under our protocol division, civil servants are forbidden to operate, or own a foreign account. This is why I am contacting you for an assistance. We have agreed that you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum, 60% for us while 10% for any expenses incurred on both side while transacting this business.
As you may rightly want to know I got your address from a business directory here in Lagos. I am a top official with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). We the officials involved in this deal have put in many years of services to our establishment, we have been exercising patience for this opportunity for so long and to most of us, this is a life time opportunity we cannot afford to miss. This transaction is very much free from all sorts of risks. To enable us get this fund paid into your account, we have to present an international business outfit and consequent upon your agreement, I will tell you details on how to proceed.
NOTE: Your discussion regarding to this transaction should be limited, because we are still in Government service. Let honest and trust be our watch words throughout this transaction.
Your prompt reply will be highly appreciated.
