Sir Engr.MARSHALL OWEN, Human/Material Resources Manager, of 
NNPC/SHELL Petroleum Development Corporation in joint venture

while searching for a reliable and reputable person to handle this 
transaction,which involves the transfer of the sum of Thirty-Nine 
Million United States Dollars to a reliable account abroad. Your role 
became paramount due to the fact that there are lots of restrictions 
binding civil servants here and we are not allowed to operate foreign 
accounts.This amount was secured from excess oil sales from Nigeria crude 
 The sum of $1.2 Billion oil windfall was released by the NNPC and Shell 
Petroleum Development Company for the month of August 2002 by The 
Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Crude oil price 
was peg at $22.00 per barrel and fortunately for oil producing 
countries like Nigeria, there was rises in oil price to about $27.00 
and $28.00 per barrel and as a result there was excess oil sales and I 
believe you would be aware of this rise in Oil price in last three 
years. Out of this $1.2 Billion excess oil funds, my colleagues and 
myself because of our position in the NNPC and Shell Petroleum 
Development Company diverted the sum of Thirty-Nine Million United 
State Dollars we want to transfer into your account, which is in the 
excess crude oil sales.Your Role:-To enable the bank transfer this US$39m 
secured into your bank account, you will be acting as one of our 
contractor who have executed a government contract here in Nigeria and 
beneficiary of the funds, and this money will be paid in your favour. 
 I will guide you on how we will achieve this. Note, the reason for the 
transfer of this Thirty-Nine  Million United States Dollar into your 
account is because of our incapability as Government officials to own a 
foreign account. All the necessary documentation for the facilitation and 
approval of this fund into your Account will be carefully taken good care 
of hence we are involved. This business i assure you is 100% risk free, as
