I write to inform of my desire to acquire estates or landed properties in your country on behalf of the Director of Contract and Finance Allocations of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing in Nigeria.
Considering his very strategic and influential position,he want the transaction to be strictly confidential as possible. He further wants his identity to remain undisclosed at least for now, until the completion of transaction. Hence our desire to have an overseas agent.
I have therefore been directed to inquire if you would agree to act as our overseas agent in order to actualize this transaction. The deal in brief is that the funds with which we intend to carry out our proposed investments in your country is presently in a coded account at the Nigeria Apex bank (Central Bank of Nigeria) and we need your assist ance to transfer the funds to your country in a convenient bank account that will be provided by you before we can put the funds into use in your country.
For this, you shall be considered to have executed a contract for the federal ministry of Works and Housing in Nigeria for which payment should be effected to you by Ministry, The contract sum of which shall run into US$28M (Twenty Eight Million Dollars) of which your share shall be 25% if you agree to be our overseas agent.
As soon as payment is effected, and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into your account, we intend to use our own share in acquiring some estates and setting up trust accounts abroad. For this too you shall also serve as our agent.
In the light of this, I would like you to forward to me the following information's:
1. Your company name and address if any.
2. Your personal fax number.
3. Your personal telephone number for easy communication.
You are requested to communicate your acceptance of this proposal through this email address:
After which we shall discuss in details the modalities for seeing this transaction through. Your quick response will be highly appreciated. Thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.
I would like to represent you as your interplanetary agent.
First and foremost, I must stress that our intention here is to establish a long lasting business partnership.
I am the Principal Partner of this transaction. We to avail you the complete details of the transaction.We have completed negotiations within all the parastatals involved for the smooth conclusion of transfering the funds form it's location in Nigeria to its final destination bank with clearance from the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The origin, source and reason for this payment will be provided to your bankers at the point of transfer.

We shall also secure Vetting approval from the office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to show that the funds does not violate international law or the UN arbitration whatsoever.
In furtherance of our desire for a 100% risk free accomplishment of this project, we intend to bring all the processes of the fund release within the frame of an actual fund release for a contract officially perceived to have been executed by you for the Federal Ministry Of Works and Housing(FMWH). The funds would therefore be released by the Central Bank of Nigeria in her capacity as the banker to all Statutory corporations in my country of which the FMWH is one.
In effect, the general perception of all government establishment concerned with the issuance of Approvals for the release of the funds would be that of approving a contract payment to believed to have been done by you.
You are therefore able to appreciate the magnitude of confidentiality required to be maintained by us all, as this is of paramount importancy for a 100% risk free project guaranteeing our enjoyment of all the proceeds of the project with absolute piece of mind.
We have to incorporate any company we are going to use to front into the legal system with the Corporate Affairs Commission here and as well register it with the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing (FMWH) as certified contractor whom can execute a contract of such magnitude.
We have to back - date the registration to tally with the actual time this contract was actually awarded and executed. As soon as this certificates are out, we shall forward a copy to you for your own perusal after which we will file application for claims with the use of your bankers information.
To buttress the authenticity of the funds released, we intend to bring all aspects of the project within the realms of all laid down proceedures as obtained in proper contractual payment transfer, thus giving the project and the transfer itself all legitimacy, ensuring total consistency with all legal requirement.
Our sole yardstick for conducting the affairs of this project, is the necessity of enjoying the proceeds with absolute peace of mind now and in the future. On this,we have on iota of doubt,as to our perfect disposition as well as capacity in this regard, and we would not have engaged in this project if we were not more than 100% confident in our ability to bring our desire to fruition provided that you being the officially recognized beneficiary of the funds adhere strictly, religiously, accordingly and promptly to all our instructions as originators of the project, and also having you as our partner in all totality of confidence, good faith and trust, with a view to a course for mutual and satisfactory benefits, as set out in the ratio of the funds disbursement in our letter to you.
We therefore crave your indulgence very much on this good faith, and pray and hope sincerely that you will not let us down.In the interest if ensuring absolute confidentiality, particularly at this stage,we advise that for the time being, you should stay out of any and all discussions with any persons and your bankers in respect of the funds arrival until we advise otherwise, which will apparently be at a stage considered safe enough for our peace of mind as the direct participants of the Project.
As top career civil servant still in active government service, we are super sensitive about the project being a once in a life time opportunity for us to better our lives and provide for our children's future. We therefore believe that the interest of the project, as well as our peace of mind, would be better protected by the concealment of this Project tacitly in the absolute knowledge of the partners (you and us) only.
We guarantee in all totality that once this is religiously adhered to by you, the 100% risk free accomplishment of the project will not be compromised. However, we are confident that within 10 to 14 working days, we will secure the Final Approvals from the appropriate government ministries and parastatals. You must not under any circumstances inform or supply your bank or anybody with any information about the project until such a time will advise.
Our code of operation is "Partnership protection first", live a low key lifestyle, and remember, "Loose lips Sink Ships". We have the express capability to accomplish this project and you must rely on this, because this is a sensitive project for which we have put in so much commitment.
We therefore insist on strict confidentiality hoping that you can be trusted.

May 11 Dear Sir,
My name is Marvin Marshyn, although I prefer to be called by the name Commander X-2.
I was born in the Valles Marineris region in 1948. I live with my dog K-9 and I have come here because of the obstruction of my view of Venus. I am affilated witht the ACME weapons co., manufacturer of the ACME Disintegrator and the revered Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator. My mission has however been hindered by the actions of one B. Bunny who has so far proved resistent to the the disintegrator. This fund would be very handly in overcoming the shortcomings of the Illudium Pew-36 Explosive Space Modulator which will allow me to bring my mission to fruition. You must communicate to me via this crude form of type, email as it is referred to, as the short and long wave disturbences have rendered my intergalactic telecommunicator unreliable.
I am hesitant to enter a pact with earthlings but you have assured me that you are trustworthy so we may proceed as you recommend.
Thanks for your email.It will be very difficult for us to transact this bussiness with you only by email considering the magnitude of the funds.
Not only that,the fact that you are a researcher/scientist makes us not too sure if you can help us invest our own share of the funds in properties as we intend.
If you can give me an assurance and also send me your phone and fax numbers then we are in bussiness.
Please try to understand my position.
I await your reponse.
Your position is most secure and I can enlist the trustworthy services of General E.M.C. Squared for guidance how to invest the funds wisely.
We must continue to communicate through your email system, it is resistant to unpleasant disturbances emitted by Uranus.

Subject: We are ALL Agog
My partners here at the ACME weapons company are all agog at the prospect of correcting the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.
Our latest test yesterday was rather disappointing. After initiating the modulator to funtion, there was no KABOOM. There was supposed to be an earth-shattering KABOOM. This made me very angry, very angry INDEED.
I await your electronic mail communication. We must work together to fix this naughty specimen so we can complete our mission.
But then, losing patience...
I do believe the earthling is somewhat reluctant to work with Martians. Perhaps I can convince him to assist me in the the destruction of the elusive wascally wabbit.
General E.M.C. Squared has just informed me that rather than being and earthling, you really come from the planet MUGU. This planet consists of lower life forms that claim to have access to large sums of money, but really are all just criminals.
He said the MUGUS use a tired old scam that was originally perpetrated discovered through ancient fax machines, but now unemployed MUGU's sit around in internet cafes all day trying to desperately trick people into sending them money via Western Union.
This is not legal, and threfore I will have to find the funds I need to perfect the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator elsewhere, no thanks to you MUGUS.
more to come?
