Betreff: BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP SOLICITION AND CONTRACT AWARD
Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. I am Dr S.Mba
Andeme, a secretary general in the Ministry of Mine and Energy,
Malabo, Equatorial Guinea and I head a four-man tender board in
charge of Contracts Awards and payment Approvals.This transaction
entails the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account
requiring maximum confidence.My colleagues and i are top officials of
the Republic of Equatorial Guinea Contract Review and Award Panel.
Our duties include evaluation, vetting, approval for payment of contract
jobs done for the Ministry, etc.
The source of this funds is as follows: Some years back here in
Euatorial Guinea, this committee awarded a contract of US
$100,000,000.00 (One Hundred Million United States Dollars) to five
firms on behalf of the Mines and Energy Ministry for the construction
and installation of Jade platform and a methanol plant. During this
process my colleagues and I decided amongst ourselves to deliberately
over-inflate the total contract sum to US$116,500,000.00 (One
Hundred and Sixteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) with the main intention of sharing the remaining sum of US
$16,500,000.00 (Sixteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars) amongst ourselves. The Republic of Equatorial Guinea
has since approved the sum of US$116,500,000.00 (One Hundred
and Sixteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) for
us as the contract sum, and the sum of US$100,000,000.00 (One
Hundred Million United States Dollars) has also been paid to the
foreign contractors concerned as contract entitlements for the contract
done,we are now left with US$16,500,000.00 balance floating in the
account which we intend to transfer abroad into a safe and reliable
account to be disbursed amongst ourselves, but by virtue of our
positions as civil servants and members of this panel, we cannot do this
by ourselves, as we are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau
(Civil Service Laws) from opening / operating foreign accounts in our
names, making it impossible for us to acquire the money in our names. I
have, therefore, been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues in
the panel to look for an overseas partner into whose account we would
transfer the sum of US$16,500,000.00 (Sixteen Million Five Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars), hence we are writing you this letter.
My colleagues and I have agreed that if you can act as the beneficiary
of this funds on our behalf, you will retain 20% of the total amount of
US$16,500,000.00 (Sixteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars), while 70% will be for us (members of this panel) and
the remaining 10% will be used in offsetting all debts/expenses incurred
(both local and foreign) in the cause of this transfer. Needless to say,
the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return we
demand your complete honesty and trust. You must however, NOTE
that this transaction will be strictly based on the following terms and
conditions as we have stated below, as we have heard confirmed cases
of business associates running away with funds kept in their custody
when it finally arrive their accounts. A very good and recent example is
the one of Mr. Allen Rodney, the President of Velo Finance and
Investment Company South Korea, and former Chairman of GETESA
(Mr. Enrique Ekwu), who we were reliably informed that after the
agreement between both partners in which he was to take 15% of the
money, while the remaining 85% for Equatorial Guinea Officials. With
all the required documents signed, the money was duly transferred into
his account, only to be disappointed on their arrival in South Korea and
were informed that Mr. Allen Rodney was no longer on that address,
while his telephone and fax numbers have been re-allocated to
somebody else. This was how they lost US8.5 Million to Mr. Allen.
This is a very recent story here in my country and everybody is aware
of this, some of the officials decided to cry out, because they felt they
had lost too much to a stranger, while the Chairman of GETESA is
hiding in a foreign country. So right now we are taking all precautionary
measures to guard against re-occurrence of such act in our case. This is
why we have decided that this transaction will be based completely on
(a). Our conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence.
(b). That you would treat this transaction with utmost secrecy and
(c). That upon receipt of the funds, you will promptly release our share
(70%) on demand after you have removed your 20% and all expenses
have been settled.
(d). You must be ready to produce us with enough information about
yourself to put our minds at rest,by providing your full name,contact
address,telephone and fax numbers.
Please, note that this transaction is 100% legal and risk free and we
hope to conclude the business in Seven Bank working days from the
date of receipt of the necessary information and requirement from you.
Please, acknowledge the receipt of this letter using my email address. I
will bring you into the complete picture of the transaction when I have
heard from you.
Your urgent response will be highly appreciated as we are already
behind schedule for this financial quarter.
Thank you and God bless.
