Sister City Opportunity

Dear Most Excellent Highness Your Worship Dick Hubbard
Request for Urgent Sister City Relationship                 
I am the group managing director of the Lagos City Council (LCC) in the Republic of Nigeria and I write on behalf of the Mayor of Lagos City Council, His Excellency Charles SOLUDO.
The members of our sister city relationship committee are interested in the exportation of goods into Auckland and the importation of the goods into Lagos, using the funds presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria/Lagos City Council foreign payments account.
Our request is anchored on our strong desire to establish a lasting business relationship with you and your city. We hence solicit your partnership to enable us transfer into your account the said funds. You have been recommended to us in confidence and we were assured of your ability and reliability to prosecute business transaction that require maximum confidentiality.
This fund is presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria/Lagos City Council foreign payments account with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). To this effect, the present Mayor and Council in Nigeria set up an adhoc committee to identify, scrutinize and recommend for payment all valid contracts that have been fully executed. In the course of our assignment, we have identified a lot of misappropriated and inflated funds which are presently floating in the suspense account of the Central Bank of Nigeria ready for payment. The companies who executed their contracts have been fully paid. It is now part of the over inflated sum of NZD$500,000,000 that we intend to transfer into the foreign account.
I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust by the members of the committee to look for a foreign partner into whose account we could transfer the sum of NZD$500,000,000(Five Hundred million of your New Zealand dollars) only.
We have agreed to procure goods and services from your city to this value over the coming year, on the proviso that your council enters into a sister city relationship with Lagos, for the sum of $100,000 US Dollars.
Please note that this transaction is 100% safe and guaranteed since the law under which our committee was set up has empowered us to disburse all the funds found to be floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria redundant account from 1985 till date. We shall commence the transfer of the funds immediately we receive the following information by email:
(1) your company’s name and full address
(2) your banker’s name, address, telephone and fax numbers
(3) the account number and name of beneficiary.
The above information are to enable us put up letters of claim and job description to the respective ministries for the issuance of the mandatory fund release approval/recommendations. This way, your company will become recognised and accepted as the beneficiary of the contract entitlements before the final remittance to your nominated account by the Central Bank of Nigeria being the paying bank.
We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit your absolute confidentiality in this transaction. Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter using the above telefax numbers for more details regarding the transaction.
Yours faithfully, ALHAJI D. BAYERO
On behalf of Dr Charles Soludo
Mayor of Lagos

Kiwi twist to Nigerian scam

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

I saw this article the other day and thought to myself, ha ha ha now the Nigerians can accept EftPOS and Credit Cards for their scams.

“So what we’ve done is work with this company in Sydney made up of several Nigerians living in Australia but [who] have very high level contacts to Interswitch in Lagos, and into the political arena in Nigeria.”

I bet they are high level….just imagine the Nigerian emails now.


FROM: Mr. Ben Ahore
Central Bank of Nigeria
Lagos, Nigeria

TO: D. Umbass

Dear Sir:

I have been requested by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company to contact you for assistance in resolving a matter. The Nigerian National Petroleum Company has recently concluded a large number of contracts for oil exploration in the sub-Sahara region. The contracts have immediately produced moneys equalling US$40,000,000. The Nigerian National Petroleum Company is desirous of oil exploration in other parts of the world, however, because of certain regulations of the Nigerian Government, it is unable to move these funds to another region.

You assistance is requested as a non-Nigerian citizen to assist the Nigerian National Petroleum Company, and also the Central Bank of Nigeria, in moving these funds out of Nigeria. If the funds can be transferred to your name, in your United States account, then you can forward the funds as directed by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company. In exchange for your accomodating services, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company would agree to allow you to retain 10%, or US$4 million of this amount.

However, to be a legitimate transferee of these moneys according to Nigerian law, you must presently be a depositor of at least US$100,000 in a Nigerian bank which is regulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

If it will be possible for you to assist us, we would be most grateful. We suggest that you meet with us in person in Lagos, and that during your visit I introduce you to the representatives of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company, as well as with certain officials of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

If you are unable to meet in person, then not to worry we have now obtained very good EFTPOS technology from much good New Zealand company and can now accept credit card transaction over the Interweb.

Please call me at your earliest convenience at [Phone Number]. Time is of the essence in this matter; very quickly the Nigerian Government will realize that the Central Bank is maintaining this amount on deposit, and attempt to levy certain depository taxes on it.

Yours truly, etc.

Ben Ahore
