Dear Sir/Madam, I am Engr. Raja Akbar, of the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC). With the assistance of some senior official of the Central Bank of Kuwait and the Federal Ministry of Finance, we want to quietly transfer the sum of $21.5m from KNPC offshore account with Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK) to an oversea account. This $21.5 Million arose from over-invoicing of contract receipts for the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of the three housing oil refineries in Mina Abdulla, Mina Ahmadi and Shuaiba here in Kuwait and also the rehabilitation of Petroleum pipelines, depot and Jetties. The Federal Government and the Federal Ministry of Petroleum resources have approved the total value of $280m, and the payment of foreign contractors from Japan, France and U.S.A. has already started, because most part of the work for the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) has been fully Completed. we will use your company as a consultant and job costing contractor to KNPC so that the $21.5m can be transferred to your account without any hitch whatsoever. If you are interested in assisting us in this transaction, please contact me immediately to enable us discuss further details for the successful completion of this transaction. Best Regards. Engr. Raja Akbar.
