Usman Ibrahim
Financial Controller & Chairman
Contract Award Committee (NNPC)

Dear Sir,


I am Usman Ibrahim, the Financial Controller and Contract Award Committee
Chairman in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Lagos,
Nigeria. My colleagues have assigned me to seek for assistance of a
reliable foreigner through whom we can transfer the sum of
US$27,300,000.00 (Twenty-seven Million, Three Hundred Thousand U.S.
Dollars) which arose from the deliberate over-inflated contract value for
the Turnaround Maintenance of the KADUNA and WARRI refineries on behalf of
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). The contract was awarded
in 1998 during the General Sani Abacha regime to an expatriate firm with
the consideration of 10% commission agreement on the total contract value
of US$27,300,000.

The contract has been completed and the contractor has long been paid, we
are now left with this US$27,300,000 representing the 10% our own share as
agreed presently in the Federal Government account. The Current favorable
political/economic climate in this country now presented an opportunity
for this money to be transferred out of the country. Our contact in the
Federal Ministry of Finance have given us the clear to go ahead with the
process of the remittance, hence we have set in motion the machinery for
the take off of this transaction and further action will commence
immediately we hear from you.

We have agreed that after the transfer of the money into your account, you
shall be entitled to 25% of the total amount transferred, while the
remaining 65% will be for us. We decided to give you this percentage in
order to motivate you and also to let you feel satisfied at the end of
this transaction. The nature of your business is not particularly relevant
for the success of this transaction. All we require is your willingness to
co-operate and assurance that our own share will be given to us when this
money is transferred into your account. All necessary precautions have
been taken to ensure a no risk situation on the sides of both parties and
it is believed that the conclusion of this transaction will not last more
than 10 working days.

Since we do not intend to invest this funds in our country so that our
source of instant wealth is not questioned. Our plan is to invest this
money into Real Estate, Stocks and Bonds and we can also invest in some
other profitable business in your country based on your advice because
many of our years have been spent as civil servant, and we may likely
resign from government service to private business after this money is
transferred into your account. Please note that this comunication is done
in strict confidence and in anticipation of your keeping very
confidential, the details herein communicated to you irrespective of your
disposition to this proposition. This is necessary to avoid disclosure
that may jeopardize the transaction.

Finally, if this proposal is acceptable to you, or if you have any
questions, feel free to contact me immediately on the above e-mail
address, communicating your position with respect to my proposition.

You should also send to me your private e-mail address, telephone number
and fax number for easy and confidential communication. I will oblige you
with further information as soon as I get a positive response from you.

Best Regards,

Dr. Usman Ibrahim
