Overseas Agent / Trade Deals / Joint Venture Investment Program Opportunities From Nigerian Scammers Which Promise Huge Profits from Cow Vaccine Medicine Anit MG4


I got this one May 21, 2001 from a Mr. Peter Kone from France Tel: 225 07 06 59 78

Dear Sir,

I write to solicit your assistance and support to enable me execute a very lucrative and high profiting business transaction.

I am very confidence that with trust and understanding we can be able to execute this business to our mutual benefit and believe that you will not let down the trust and confidence I am willing to repose in you.

I work for an Ivorien based public international firm (AXIM RDC), I work as the corporate affairs manager. Between the 17th -19th of may, 2000 a business seminar was held in BOUAKE Cote D'Ivoire of which I attended.

While in the Seminar, I had the opportunity to meet Alhaji Au Bostra, the President of IVOGRAIN-SIPRA ETS. Alhaji Bostra is an accomplished and widely known and recognised millionaire farmer in this part of the region.

He has farms in different countries of West Africa. But above all, he is one of the greatest supplier of beef cattle and other diary products in this part of the coast.

On getting to know my profession, ALHAJI Bostra took me into his confidence by informing me about the purchase of a particular but very important medicine for his cattle.

He informed me that he buys this product at $ 5,000.00 USD per carton, and that he mostly buys to the excess of 200 cartons.

He informed me that he was only asking me to find out if my organization could source for him a cheaper supplier considering the recent trend of falls in the general price of beef in the world market which is affecting his business.

Back in my office, I discussed this proposal with my boss and he decided to handle the supply by himself. We carried out a market research and discovered that we could purchase these medicines somewhat cheaper in Holland for $2,000.00 USD per carton.

We sent a proposal to IVOGRAIN-SIPRA to make the supply to them at $4,800.00 USD per carton of which he accepted. Owing to my role in the transaction, I had an agreement with my director to be receiving 15% of whatever gain is made on each supply of which he agreed.

But on the completion of the supply and the receipt of the payment, my boss reneged on our agreement and refused to give me my share of the profit. Since then our relationship has been at its lowest . I have since accepted it as one of life's experiences.

However, as God would have it, recently, I intercepted a letter of request from Alhaji Bostra asking my boss to supply him with 250 cartons of the same product before the 10th of JULY 2001. I seized the letter and this letter has not and will never get to my boss.

I personally contacted Alhaji Bostra and informed him that I can introduce him to the producer who is ready to supply him the product at $4,400.00 USD if he will pay in advance as he usually does. He was very pleased and is right now waiting to be contacted by my partner.

We will buy the medicine at $2,000.00 USD from HOLLAND and sell at $4,400.00 USD TO Alhaji Bostra with him first paying 50% of our quoted price in advance. I will entitled to 15% of whatever profit we make after the deduction of all expenses.

If you are interested and is capable of handling this supply with me, kindly get back to me urgently through my telephone (225)07 06 59 78 or via my e-mail so that I can furnish you with the contacts of both our source in HOLLAND and that of Alhaji AU Bostra.

Kindly be notified that at no point in time should ALHAJI Bostra suspect that you are not the producer of the medicine and we should never allow him know the contact of our real source in Holland as not to allow him to cut us out and deal directly with them.

I hope to receive your response and I thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Kone

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter out of a genuine desperation to find a reliable partner in the unfolding transaction that have been unjustly treated by my partner in a transaction.

I hereby seek your help, attention and genuine co-operation to our mutual benefit and 1 believe that you will not let down the trust and confidence 1 am about to repose on you.

MY NAME IS MR DELA DANIELS, I am 32 year old and for the past ten years, I have been working in a public Relations firm that pays me about two hundred dollars each month.

On the 30th of June, our company made a very big financial breakthrough when we made contact with Alhaji Duadu Dasuki (xi) and began to supply him his cow medicines.

Alhaji Duadu Dansuki(xi) is THE PRESIDENT OF DASUKI AGRO ALLIED FARMS)is a millionaire farmer with CATTLE FARMS in MALI, SENEGAL, GUINEA, BURKINA FASO, CHAD REP, and a new one located at ZIMBABWE.

Moreover, he is the greatest supplier of cattle beef and other dairy products to the whole of West Africa.

He had informed us about the huge amount of money he spent on the purchase of a particular but very important cattle medicine.

Precisely, he buys US$5,000 per carton. He asked if our organization could source for a cheaper supplier. We carried out a market research and discovered that we can buy this medicine in Europe for US$2,000 per carton.

We moved a proposal to DASUKI AGRO ALLIED FARMS, to supply him at US$4,800 per carton which they accepted. As these supplies progressed and our company is doing fine, I now requested to my boss for an increase in my salary but to my greatest surprise he was so upset that he sacked me without benefits and ten years of dedicated workmanship.

I was so desperate that I went to the Dasuki farms and inform Alhaji Duadu Dansuki(XI), that I have a foreign contact that will be willing to supply him this same products at US$4,400. Per carton.

Alhaji Daudu Dansuki in turn confided to me that he is about to place order for one thousand cartons following a suspected outbreak of disease in his farms.

I have assured Alhaji Duadu Dansuki that my foreign contact will be in the position to manufacture and supply to him the requested cartons.

In fact I convinced him that my former boss usually buys from my foreign contact and that is why he sales to him at a higher price.

HOWEVER, I INFORMED ALHAJI DAUDU THAT HE WILL HAVE TO PAY CASH IN ADVANCE BEFORE MY FORIEGN CONTACT WILL SUPPLY TO HIM.

For the moment he has stopped all contact with my boss.

Please consider on how to handle this profitable project and kindly contact me immediately on my mailbox, for details and negotiations as regards my commission. However, I will insist that my commission will be 20% of the total profit.

Note: We will buy one thousand cartons at US$2,000,000. We sell to them at US$4,400,000 Dollars, our client pays cash before lifting of the goods. (They must not know our purchase point in Europe).

Thanks and God bless you.

After requesting a link with a business organization in Africa which seeks to stop such scams I got the following response. Call me skeptical, but the writing has such a familiar ring to it that I almost suspect them of being a branch of the scammers themselves. In order to avoid looking like quite the fool I would appreciate if anyone could verify the bona fides of the group for me.

If indeed they are legitimate I hope they will forgive the insult my doubt implies. I should note that I am forever being questioned about my motives as well, so they are in good company.

INVITATION TO BID

I am Senator SANNI AHMED, a member of the National Assembly, representing Kaduna State Senatorial constituency of Federal republic of Nigeria. I write to solicit your interest in a project that will be beneficial to you and I.

PROJECT INTRODUCTION

Several committees have been created within the senate to deliberate on major capital projects. One of these committees is the Contract Advisory committee (CAC), which I am the Chairman.

The projects have been categorized under the following sectors: Agriculture, Mines and Power, Education, Housing, Health, Petroleum, Information Technology and Communication, Aviation e.t.c.

The Federal Government of Nigeria has received a credit of US$2.6 Billion from the International Development Association (IDA) in various Currencies towards the funding of the above projects.

HOW TO FIT IN

Projects above US$15Million have been tagged for Foreign Contractors only, who will be invited to bid for contracts by open tender. To participate in the bid, we shall need to present your Company as our foreign partner with a local subsidiary in Nigeria.

You shall then put forward an application to bid for a major capital project/contract on our behalf in an area of your speciality, although we already have some projects in mind to bid for with your support.

MY DUTY

My duty will be that of the lobbyist. I shall guide the process of the contract bid to ensure that the contract is awarded to your company for us all.

All the necessary documentation involved with the contract award will be done at my end to meet the stipulated requirements of the committee.

WHAT WE STAND TO GAIN

Once the contract is awarded to your Company and this is approved, by our senate committee, 80% of the total contract value, shall be advanced to your company as mobilization/facilitation allowance to allow you commence the execution of the contract and the balance 20% shall be paid upon completion of the contract.

At this time, it is worthy to note that most major foreign contracts in Nigeria have a 30% net profit margin and the Contract we intend to bid for with your support is valued at about USD$50MILLION, so we all stand to make USD$15million as profit upon completion of the contract.

For your assistance, we are willing to compensate you with 20% of the profit and the remainder 80% shall be ours.

In as much as we would want you to take time to ponder on our proposal to you, Kindly indicate your interest as soon as possible via a return email, then I will be more comfortable to give you further details.

The issue of confidentiality and utmost secrecy forms the bedrock of the success of this project.

Kindly endeavour to keep this transaction to your good self-alone as we shall not welcome any form of intrusion.

While we expect your immediate response, I remain,

As soon as payment is effected and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into your account, we intend to use our own share in acquiring some estates abroad. For this too, you shall serve as our agent.

It might interest you to note that last year, a similar transaction was carried out with one MR. CHIENCHEN YU of Taiwan but after securing the payment approvals, and payment effected, MR. CHIENCHEN YU changed his numbers and addresses, and was no where to be found on our getting to Taiwan.

That was how we lost US$7.5Million. So this time around , I will be with you before the remittance is made into your provided account to avoid future occurrence and allow trust to play a very minimal role until performance is seen.

You are requested to communicate your acceptance or otherwise of this proposal, through drpomo1000\\yahoo.com. After which we shall discuss in details the modalities for seeing this transaction through.

If however, you are not disposed to assist, kindly destroy this letter in view of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and interest of personalities involved.

Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.

Best Regards,

Dr Peter Omokaro.

Followed by:

Dear partner,

Thank you very much for your response. I received your email and I am sending to you this detailed message with the details of how we intend to get the funds out to your account quietly and smoothly.

However, I have discussed your response with my colleagues, and with our acknowledgement of your apparent understanding of the need for strict privacy in the transaction of this magnitude, we make bold to give you the details of the perfected modalities for the projects prompt realisation 100% risk free and timely.

As top government functionaries who are about to retire and take active role in the next political dispensation/democratic election in my country, we have to keep this transaction strictly confidential so as to protect our future political career and personal integrity.

We hereby reassure you as the originators of the pending project that if you follow our instructions religiously, accordingly and promptly, the project will be 100% completed in at most 5 to10 banking days from the receipt of your requirements.

Under our perfected modalities for a prompt finalisation of the project, it is absolutely risk-free and fail-proof. We realise the necessity of confidence and trust as reposed on us all as partners, being necessary for building the solidarity disposition to be maintained by us in the furtherance of the prompt realisation of our desire.

In total recognition of this spirit, we guarantee to you, that neither your interest nor that of your company will be brought to odiom by reason of this project. You can count absolutely on this as we will not let you down.

Your Requirements. To meet with the total guarantee given above, it is absolutely essential for us to officialise the process of the funds transfer, making it take the semblance of a transfer of contractual payment for a contract, which under our modalities will be officially perceived to have been executed by your company for the FEDERAL MINSTRY OF WORKS AND HOUSING (FMWH), while the very nature of this project as an organised deal, will remain in our (partners only) exclusive knowledge.

Please do not let us down. To formalise the project, we are sending along with this email message, A SPECIMEN APPLICATION FORM needed for officializing the project, towards perfecting our modalities for the funds transfer.

As a contract payment you should fill out this form properly, date it, sign it and despatch it to us promptly by fax, on my confidential fax.-234 1 7599191 This will enable us officialise the project.

Or you could also send via email. Keep the original safely as they may ultimately be needed at the instance of the project finalisation.

Once more, there are no risk involved at all as this is a completely confidential transaction. We are presently handicapped because we lack a viable partner who has a foreign account and is ready to financially assist us in finalizing this urgent business.

This is due to restive laws of the Federal Civil Service of Nigeria which forbids us government workers from having foreign accounts.

By virtue of our position (By Tender Board/Contract Awards Review and Payment Approval Committee) it is ordinarily and exclusively our duty to validate all payments of contractual moneys to contractors for contracts executed for all Federal Statutory Corporation of our past Federal Military regime.

Under our modalities for prosecuting this project to a prompt finalisation, it is our intention that upon receipt of the duly typed Payment Information from you, we shall validate the claim, make a customary writing report, that your company executed a contract for the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing (FMWH), and it is by virtue of the contract, entitled to the payment of theUS$15.8 Million that we want to transfer.

This report will validate the bonafide of your claim and confirm you as the contractor beneficiary of the funds and therefore entitled to an allocation of an Exchange Control Approval Number for the release of theUS$15.8Million, by the Federal Ministry of Finance, and subsequent remittance of the funds to you nominated bank account (for us all) by the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN), which is the banker for all Federal Statutory Corporation in my country and paying bank.

All the Federal Ministry of Finance does after our validation report is to issue the final Exchange Approval Order Number as a bureaucratic satisfaction of contractual funds release procedure. In effect, once the Contract Awards Review and Payment Approval Committee has validated a claim, the Federal Ministry of Finance is bound to approve same, this is why we have an unflinching confidence in the safety of our arrangement.

The transaction will be a Bank to Bank affair. From the foregoing, you are therefore able to appreciate why we have hammered on the absolute necessity of our maintenance of confidentiality of the project and the transfer even after we have disbursed the money after arrival in your account.

Finally, we will want you to guarantee us the following:

1) That you will keep this transaction totally confidential?
2) That you are satisfied with your share of the funds?
3) That you will remit our portion of funds as soon as they arrive your account except by further instructions on how should invest it?

Once again, thank you very much for your expressed willingness to assist in this project.I urgently await the completed application form to enable me commence action here timely.

Regards,

Dr. P Omokaro. fax 234 1 759 9191. Tel/fax 234 52 25 4496.

WE HAVE SATISFIED ALL THE OTHER CRITERIA EXCEPT THE FOREIGN PARTNERSHIP DEAL AND THIS IS WHY I DECIDED TO WRITE THIS LETTER TO YOU IN DESPERATION.

Drilling for Suckers

I am a service manager at a small oilfield service company in Louisiana. Today our outside salesman came back very excited about a business deal that he claimed would make our company a lot of money.

He had met a friendly black man in Kilgore, Texas with a foreign accent that claimed to be a Nigerian whose brother owned a drilling company in Nigeria.

He claimed that they could not get their equipment serviced in Nigeria and asked if we might be interested in opening a shop in his country, and if not, would we be interested in sending personnel to Nigeria to train locals in our trade.

The Nigerian said that money would be no object. After having read your article on Nigerian scams, I would not go for a million dollars. We are supposed to be contacted by the brother in Nigeria this week or next.
