Attn: Dear Friend,

I make this introduction based on my regard for
your credibilty. My name is Engr. Ricardo Zebus, I work with the Sao
Tome and Principe National Petroleum Agency. To be precise, I oversee
Europe Operations for the Agency. My position in the Agency entitles
me to recommend oil allocation bidders and actualize oil lifting and
exploration allocation licenses to my candidates based on my
interest. In 2003, I facilitate and actualized the license of a
candidate, a businessman from Iraq, the license was for 5years at 24
million Barrels/12months. Due to reasons unknown to me, I have not
heard from this Man till date. The License been valid till date (as
I always ensure that I keep to my side of the bargain), I have decided
to begin using the license from this month. I am in need of a partner
whom I can trust, I will package you as the allocation license
beneficiary. Due to my position in the Petroleum Agency, I can
not handle this position in the petroleum agency. You have all the
qualities needed for this project. This is why I am contacting you
now, with the current of events in Sao Tome and Principe,We shall be
able to lift a minimum of 1.5 Million Barrels of Sao Tome Crude oil
called Bonny Light Crude oil which is one of the best in the world per
month. This will fetch us an average of US$80 Million Per Month. I
have ready buyers who would scramble for any number of barrels we
lift. This is what I proposed. 1.We have to officially register a
company with the Sao Tome NPA which shall be used in place of the
initiall license operator. 2. I will ensure that our company name is
recognized as the license operator and that we have a lay candidate for
at least Min of 1Million Barrels per month, A maximum of 2 Million
Barrels per month. Sarting from this moment as we officially register a
company. 3. I will ensure that all lifting procedures are in place
and buyers readily available. 4. You stands in as the license
operator for all the lifting and sales transactions, we shall open a
coperate account for the receipt of the oil sale proceeds in which both
of us shall be signatory to the account. 5. We shall split the oil
sale proceeds in the ration of 50-50 equity sharing, Equity will be at
the end of every annual quater. Pls Note: No third party arrangement
shall be allowed. I believe you are a man of wisdom and intelligence,
this offer I make to you is based on utmost good faith.which could be
jeopardizing my position in the Agency if word of this project goes
out. Therefore without Mincing words, I rely on you for utmost
confidentiality on every bit of details relating to
this transaction. I am sending this letter to you via email since I
do not have your phone and fax numbers for easier communication, but do
not fail to send them while replying to this letter, I am in London at
moment, upon your positive response, I will be willing to forward you
all proof of my preposition. I look forward to a prospective business
relationship between us.please contact me directly at Humble Regards, Engr. Ricardo
