Chairman, Seven (7) Man Presidential Panel/Public
Debt Committee On Contract Executed in Power Sector
Federal Republic Of Nigeria.
I am the chairman of Seven (7) Man Presidential Panel, Debt Committee On Contract Executed in Power Sector. This panel was set up and empowered by three factors: The President Of Nigeria, Mallam Musa Yar'Adua, Members of G-34 and the Honorable Members of the Judicial Panel, to review and subsequently recommend for payment all duly executed contracts awarded to "Foreign & Local Contractors" during the last Govt. of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. We discovered an over-invoiced contract sum to the tune of $25Million (Twenty Five Million United State Dollars.) We further traced the origin of this sum and thus, found out that it was deliberately over-invoiced by the then "Contract Awarding Committee" before they were dissolved.
As it stands now, we are very confident that the Government has no knowledge of this sum; neither does the dissolved committee have access to the said sum again. We still have almost one year to conclude our duty and it is only then that we shall give official reports and probably revert this over-invoiced contract sum back to the Federal Government's purse.
It is in the light of this that my colleagues and I decided to confidently contact you urgently so that we could perfectly present you or your company as one of the "Foreign Contractors" that executed a contract for the Nigerian Government, and we shall recommend the $25 Million United States Dollars (USD$25,000,000.00) to be processed and transfered into your account.
We have carefully worked out the strategies to secure all the necessary APPROVALS in your name and there is no room for failure, because we are still at the head of Contract Review And Payments Recommendation Panel, and it is only our reports that count.
If we have understood ourselves and believed with trust that we could execute this DEAL together and move this sum of Twenty Five Million Dollars (USD$25,000,000.00) TO YOU,
then forward to me urgently the following;
1. Your full names and Company names
2. Your confidential address
3. Your direct Telephone and fax numbers.
4. Your Age
5. Your Occupation
It is pertinent to inform you that this fund will be paid through one of Central Bank Of Nigeria Offshore Paying Centres in Madrid,Spain.When the fund gets to the Paying Centre,they will contact you.They may invite you for some endorsements and opening of a new Bank Account where the fund will be transfered.This is a perfect strategy.
We shall further discuss and agree on the percentage sharing as soon as we hear from you affirmatively.
Note: that we have closed every track that might lead to any trace of this fund.
