Dear Sir/Madam,

Top of the day to you, my name is Brandon Dinizulu and I am a consulting
Engineer for the West African Gas 
Pipeline Project. This is a 678 kilometres long pipeline from the gas reserves
in Nigeria's Escravos region 
of Niger Delta area to Benin, Togo and Ghana. It is the first regional natural
gas transmission system in 
sub-Saharan Africa.

The 569 kilometres long offshore section which runs through the waters of
Benin, Togo and Ghana parallel 
to the coastline, approximately 15 kilometres to 20 kilometres offshore in
water depths of between 30 metres
and 75 metres. The new Nigerian onshore section connects the offshore section
compressor station at Lagos 
Beach with Nigeriaâs existing gas grid. Together with the Chevron-owned
existing Escravos-Lagos pipeline, 
operational since 1989, the total length of pipeline is 1,033 kilometres.

My company is an environmental consultancy agency based in Ghana, West Africa
and we carried the 
environmental impact assessment on the project. The project has not taken off
because of leaks detected 
from the Nigerian side. This, however, is not the issue. The issue is that we
have detected the sum of 
US$36.9 Million lying dormant in the accounts of the West African Gas Pipeline
Co. Ltd which is the 
company formed to oversee the project.

I wish to seek your consent to use your details to apply for payment of the
said amount as a contractor for 
the project. You might want to ask why I cannot apply for this sum on my own
and keep it all to myself. 
Believe me, it was the first thought that occurred to me. However, there are
technicalities involved which 
cannot be surmounted should I attempt to do it by myself. First, my company has
already been paid for the 
environmental consultancy and we received the payment two years ago. Secondly,
I cannot be involved 
directly with the above mentioned dormant amount for the simple reason that all
contractors, aside those 
of us who carried out the initial assessments, were carried out by foreign
companies and individuals. 
Therefore, it would be tough for me to claim the funds on my own.

However, should you wish to assist in this, we will prepare documents to
ascertain that either you or your 
company carried out Flow Testing on the project. This way, there will not be
any need for us to provide any 
other sort of physical evidence as to your carrying out the contract. The
documents we put together will be 
inserted in the appropriate quarters for the purposes of verification. You may
rest assured that I have carefully 
thought this out and there is no risk of it not going through. As a matter of
fact, there is no risk involved in 
the project.

Should you assist, you will receive 40% of the total sum, 10% will be set aside
for expenses to be disbursed 
according to what amounts each of us spend in the process of actualising the
project, which I shall retain 
50% as the finder of the project. I do understand that you will have several
questions and I am willing to 
answer them to the best of my ability. 

Do accept my heartfelt good wishes as I look forward to your response. With
very kind regards,

Brandon Dinizulu
