Subject: Business Proposal
I know this message will come to you as a big surprise because we have not met before, but please do not think this is one of those scam or junk mails you received in your email box/fax machine and which I,
myself receive also.
My name is SIMONE KUMATA, I am from the Federal Republic of Nigeria and also the chairman, contract-awarding committee of my country Nigeria. I
have been on this position for the past ten years; but I have nothing to show for it. I will love it, if the both of us could do business together, which both of us will richly profit from.
Since I am the chairman contract Awarding Committee of my country, I will award a Forty million US dollars ($40 million USD) contract in your favour to supply farming equipments tractors and harvesters. A
Mobilization up front fee of twenty million U.S Dollars ($20 million USD) will be given to you to start the supply. But as soon as the mobilization fees gets to your hands, you are not going to do any
You and myself will share this mobilization up front fee on a 50-50 basis (Equally). The reason why I want us to share this start up fee is because I have been in this position as the chairman for the past ten
years, and I don't have a personal house of my own, my salary is a peanut. I cannot adequately take care of my children. In fact, things are very difficult for me. If I retire, I will have nothing to fall back on. People come sometimes to seek for favor from me and
after awarding them contracts; they'll not remember me again.
A lot of people promised and failed me. As a result of this, I want to help my self this time because I'll not want to die a poor man. If we do this business together, with your full co-operation and support we
will finish the business within five days, since I am still the person who will release the start up fee to you.
You have nothing to fear. I want you to remove anything like fear from your mind. This is the safest business you can ever think of.
I will give you more information on how we are going to do this business as soon as I receive your reply showing that you are ready to do the business with me. But please do not discuss this business with anybody, even your best friends until we have finished
I will want you to reply me immediately so that I can tell you the next step to take. In your reply, please include your private telephone / mobile, fax and email.
PLS, I want you to send your reply through this my private e-mailaddress below:
