Barr. Tunde Badmus Esq


I am Barr. Tunde Badmus Esq a director in the project and planning department of the Nigeria 
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), I head a seven man Tenders Board Committee in charge of 
contract award and Payment approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable and 
reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge 
sum of money to a foreign account.

There were series of contracts executed by a consortium of Multinationals in the oil industry in 
favour of the (NNPC) among which were;

1.  The expansion of Pipeline network within Nigeria for crude oil and downstream products 
distribution and subsequent evacuation -  US$2 Billion.

2.  Contract for Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of various Refineries in the country.

3.  The construction of Storage Tanks for Petroleum Product (Depots)-US$94 Million.

The original value of of these contracts  were deliberately over invoiced in the sum of Twenty Five 
million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars US$25,500,000.00) which has recently been 
approved and now ready to be transferred. However the companies that actually executed the 
aforementioned contract have been fully paid and the projects officially commissioned.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount into your account for 
subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau 
(Civil Service Laws) from opening and/or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed in you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed 
amongst ourselves to offer you 15% of the transferred sum, 5% shall be set aside for any incidental 
expenses during the course of this transaction, you will then be mandated to revert the balance to 
us in due course.

You must however NOTE that this transaction is subject to the following terms and conditions; our 
conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence, that you must accord this transaction with 
utmost confidentiality and secrecy.

Modalities have been worked out at the highest levels of the Ministry 0f Finance, Central Bank of 
Nigeria and the Presidential Task Force on Contract Payment for the immediate remittance of the 
funds within 10 - 14 working days subject to your satisfaction of the above terms.

Our assurance is that your role shall be totally risk free. To accord this transaction the legality 
it deserves, and for mutual security of funds, the whole procedures shall be legally processed with 
your name or any company you may nominate as the bona fide final beneficiary.

Once more, I want you to understand that having put in over 20 years in the Civil Service of my 
country, I am very  much averse to having my image and career dented. This matter should therefore 
be treated with utmost secrecy and urgency. Kindly expedite immediate action as we are well behind 
schedule to enable us include this transfer in the third batch of the 2010 fiscal year contract 


Barr. Tunde Badmus Esq.
