I was told that I had a fund of 7, 000.00 dollars in the bank in Cotonou, Benin Republic and all I had to do was send 100.00 dollars to release the fund to me. I sent the money in c/o Western Union to an Andrew Obunso of Apex Bank and was told that the 7, 000.00 dollars was sent to me by a Haresh Morgan with the MTCN 8953753164 and nothing was sent. I lost my 100.00 dollars and want to know if this is a Nigerian advance fee fraud scheme. Thank you, David O'Malley

Dear : Friend
After due deliberation with my colleagues decided to forward to you this proposal. We want a reliable person who could assist us to transfer the sum of(US$7, 900, 000.00 (Seven Million Nine Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only.This fund resulted from an over-invoiced bill from a contract awarded by us under the budget, allocated to my ministry and the bill was approved for payment by the concerned ministries. The contract has been executed, commissioned and the contractor has been paid his actual cost for the contract. We are now left with the balance of US$7.9M as the over-invoiced amount, which we have deliberately over estimated for our own use. But under our protocol division, civil servants are forbidden to Operate or own a foreign account. This is why l contacted you for assistance. We have agreed that you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum, 60% for us while 10% for any expenses incurred while transacting the business and whatever left from the 10% will be shared equally. I got your business outfit from our Chambers of Commerce and Industry. I am Mr Kenneth David, a top official with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). We the officials involved in the deal have put in many years in services to our ministries. We have been exercising patience for this opportunity for so long and to most of us, this is a lifetime opportunity we cannot afford to miss. My number is, TEL: 234 7035043302To enable us get this fund paid into your account, we have to present an international business outfit and consequent upon your agreement, we shall proceed in doing business together. You may be required to sign the fund release authority in our Apex Bank. All these will only take us 6 working days to transfer this fund into your account right from the day we receive the REQUIREMENTS. NOTE: Your discussion regarding to this transaction should be limited, because we are still in government service and your type of BUSINESS those not matter.Let honest and trust be our watchwords throughout this transaction. And your prompt reply will be highly appreciated. Please reply for more Details.
