RE: INVESTMENT PROPOSAL:
INTRODUCTION: l am JUDE PHILLIPS a Civil servant. l know this proposal will come to you as a surprise because we have not met before either physically or through correspondence. I have no doubt in your ability to handle this proposal involving huge sum of money.
THE SUBJECT: My father ALHAJI ADANY PHILIPS (Now Late) was the Royal Head of my community, ELEME (an oil rich town) in Nigeria. My community produces 5.8% of the total crude oil production in Nigeria and 0.5% ofthe Dollar value of each barrel is paid to my father as royalty by the Federal Government. My father was also the Chairman of ELEME Special Oil Trust Fund. In his position as the Royal head and Chairman of the Oil Trust Fund, he made some money which he left for me as the only thing to in herit.
The money is Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars ($10.5m). This Money originated from the accumulation between 1976-1998. Due to poor banking system in Nigeria and political instability as a result of past Military rules (1985-1999) , he deposited this Money in a Strong Room/"VAULTS" with an open beneficiary in Security company situated in Nigeria pending when he would finish arrangement to transfer it abroad as a CONTRACT PAYMENT. He was planning this when he died late last year of Heart Attack.
THE PROPOSAL: Just before my father died he called my attention to the money and charged me to look for a foreigner who would assist me in the transfer/investment of the funds abroad. So l would be very grateful if you could accept to help me archieve this great objective. I promise to give you 20% of the total funds transferred to your vital bank account as compensation for your assistance. Five percent (5%)would be set aside to take care of all expenses we may incure during the transaction. To indicate your interest, contact me urgently and confidentially for more information and the roles you will play in this business. All the information concerning this Money/fund will be sent to you as soon as we agreed together. Send your reply through this mail box. May the almighty God bless you.
