I know this email will reach you as a surprise, but need not to worry
as we are using the only secured and confidential medium available to
seek for foreign assistance/partnership in a business transaction
which is of mutual benefit.

I am a member of the Federal Government of Nigeria Contract Award and
Monitoring Committee in the Nigeria National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC). Sometime ago, a contract was awarded to a foreign
firm in NNPC by my Committee. This contract was over invoiced to the
tune of US$21.5M. U.S. Dollars. This was done deliberately. The
over-invoicing was a deal by my committee to benefit from the
project. We now want to transfer this money which is in a suspense
Account with NNPC into any Overseas Account which we expect you to
provide for us.

For providing the account where we shall remit the money into, you
will be entitled to 30% of the money,70% will be for me and my
I would require the following: -

Your company's name,address,telephone and fax numbers.
The above information would be used to make formal applications as a
matter of procedure for the release of the money and onward transfer
to your account.
It does not matter whether or not your company does contract projects
of this nature described here. The assumption is that your company
won the major contract and subcontracted it out to other companies.
More often than not,big trading companies or firms of unrelated
fields win major contracts and subcontracts to more specialized firms
for execution of such contracts.

We have strong reliable connections and contacts at the Central Bank
of Nigeria, as well as the Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no
doubt that all the money will be released and transferred if we get
the necessary foreign partner to assist us in this deal.
Therefore,when the business is successfully concluded we shall
through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the
concerned Government Ministries for 100% security.

We are ordinary civil servants and we will not want to miss this once
in a lifetime opportunity to get rich. We want this money to be
transferred to the overseas Accounts for us.

Please, contact me immediately through my telephone number whether or
not you are interested in this deal.If you are not,it will enable me
scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal. But where
you are interested,send the required documents by
email:,because time is of essence in this
I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.

Yours faithfully,
John Abudu.
