From Iceland — Letters


Published July 25, 2003


Dear Friend,
I, on behalf of my colleagues from different Federal Government of Nigeria owned parastatals, decided to solicit your assistance as regards transfer of US$41,500,000.00 into your bank account.
These funds emanated from unclaimed contractual proceeds of foreign contracting firms who could not meet their financial obligations to their creditors.
We, as holders of sensitive positions in our various parastatals, were mandated by the Federal Government to scrutinise all payments made to certain foreign contractors and we discovered that some of the contractors have not been paid their contractual entitlement which collectively left the sum of US$46,500,000.00 lying in a suspended account.
However, from our investigations, we discovered that the foreign beneficiary companies have since been liquidated, and to all intents and purposes no longer exist in Nigeria, thus providing us with this opportunity, provided that we have a capable partner, to execute a transaction of this nature.
We agreed that the said amount would be transferred into an overseas bank account to be provided by a reliable foreign associate. This is because as serving government workers the Civil Service Code does not allow us to operate a foreign Account. We require a partner that is capable of rendering assistance and cooperation in executing this matter. We therefore offer the amount of 20% of the entire sum in return for services/assistance rendered in successfully carrying out this project. We trust that you appreciate the sensitive nature of this matter and the need for initial caution on our part.
Please treat with the strictest confidentiality and expediency.
Yours faithfully,
Dr.Sam Obi
