This next email is kind of interesting as it from some moron claiming to be Chief Accountant/Internal Auditor of the Contract Award Committee( CAC ) of the Nigerian National Petroleum in Nigeria, as if coming from Nigeria wouldn’t set off alarm bells?
Anyway it’s pretty well a generic email directed at a his / her type recipient. Strange that he doesn’t know the sex of the person seeing as how he claims that he got the “address from adverts in the business directory that portrayed your establishment in good light.” Yeah right.
From Dr.Rex Lawson Uke
REQUEST FOR AN URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP.
After due deliberation with my colleagues, I have decided to forward to you this business proposal. We want a reliable person who could assist us to transfer the sum of Twenty Million Five Hundred thousand United States Dollars ($20,500,000) into his / her account.
This fund resulted by way of gratification from a contract awarded by us under the budget allocation to my Ministry and this bill has been approved for payment by the concerned Ministries.
The contract has since been executed, commissioned and the contractors company, paid off. We are left with the balance of US$20.5M which was given to us by the company for influencing the contract in their favour amidst heavy competition from rival companies. But under our protocol division, civil servants are forbidden to operate or own foreign accounts this is why I am contacting you to be our custodian for this fund.
As you may want to know and to make you less curious, I got your address from adverts in the business directory that portrayed your establishment in good light. I am the Chief Accountant/Internal Auditor of the Contract Award Committee( CAC )of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC).This transaction is very much free from all sorts of RISKS and TROUBLE from my government.

I and my colleagues have agreed to COMPENSATE you duly if agreement is reached by both of us. I and one of my colleagues involved in this deal will come to your country to arrange for our share, upon the confirmation from you that the money has been credited into your nominated bank account.
We have agreed to offer you 25% of the transferred sum, where 10% shall be set aside for incidental expenses (Internal and External) between in the course of the transaction. You will be mandated to remit the balance to other account in due course. Consequent upon your acceptance of this proposal, kindly confirm your interest by, your indication by revert Telephone to me of your sincere and serious interest will enable me fax you the PROCEDURE FOR OPERATION. If my line is busy, please keep trying you will surely get through.

Again, it’s just phishing for personal information so that it can start the next leg of the campaign to rob you blind. This is another of those bullshit emails that you should delete immediately.
