Good Day,

REQUEST FOR BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP & TRANSFER OF Ј25,500,000.00

I am Mr. Bello Ahmed, a director in the project and planning department of the NIGERIAN NATIONAL 
PETROLEUM CORPORATION (NNPC), I head a seven man Tenders Board Committee in charge of contract 
award and Payment approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable and reputable person 
to handle a very confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a 
foreign account. 

There were series of contracts executed by a consortium of Multinationals in the oil industry in 
favour of the NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION (NNPC), among which were; 

1) The expansion of Pipeline network for crude oil - Ј14 BILLION. 
2) Contract for TURN AROUND MAINTENANCE (TAM) of various Refineries in the country. 
3) The construction of Storage Tanks for Petroleum Product (Depots) - Ј94 Million. 

The original value of these contracts were deliberately over invoiced in the sum of Twenty Five 
million, Five Hundred Thousand British Pound Sterling (Ј25,500,000.00) which has recently been 
approved and now ready to be transferred. However the companies that actually executed the 
aforementioned contract have been fully paid and the projects officially commissioned. 

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount into your account for 
subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau 
(Civil Service Laws) from opening and/or operating foreign accounts in our names. Needless to say, 
the trust reposed in you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed amongst ourselves 
to offer you 25% of the transferred sum, 5% shall be set aside for any incidental expenses during 
the course of this transaction, you will then be mandated to revert the balance to us in due 
course. 

You must however NOTE that this transaction is subject to the following terms and conditions; our 
conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence, that you must accord this transaction with 
utmost confidentiality and secrecy. Modalities have been worked out at the highest levels of the 
MINISTRY OF FINANCE, FEDERAL BANK and the PRESIDENTIAL TASK FORCE ON CONTRACT PAYMENT for the 
immediate remittance of the funds within 10 - 14 working days subject to your satisfaction of the 
above terms. 

Our assurance is that your role shall be totally risk free. To accord this transaction the legality 
it deserves, and for mutual security of funds, the whole procedures shall be legally processed with 
your name or any company you may nominate as the bona fide final Contract payment beneficiary. 

Once more, I want you to understand that having put in over 20 years in the Civil Service of my 
country; I am very much averse to having my image and career dented. This matter should therefore 
be treated with utmost secrecy. Kindly expedite immediate action as we are well behind schedule to 
enable us include this transfer in the second batch of the 2008 fiscal year contract payments. 
Please indicate your interest by replying to my official email address: 
ahmedbello@nnpc-nigeria.int.tf

BEST REGARDS. 
 
Mr. Bello Ahmed
