(NNPC) to an International Oil Firm, to Service, Turn Around Maintenance and Rehabilitation Work on 
Kaduna Refinery and
Petrochemical Company (KRPC) Plant  in Nigeria.

This contract was over-invoiced by us (myself and two junior colleagues) to the tune of (US$30.5 
Million United State Dollars).Though the actual contract cost have been paid to the original 
contractor, leaving the balance in the tune of the said amount which we have in principles gotten 
approval to remit by Key Tested Telegraphic Transfer (K.T.T) to any foreign bank account you will 
provide. It is based on this that some officials in my department and I have decided to establish a 
cordial business relationship with you, hence my contacting you. We want you to present yourself as 
the Beneficiary to this fund, so that we can release the fund into your account  for safety and 
subsequent disbursement.We have all modalities set.

We have been disappointed some years ago by a British, Mr. Rick Williams whom we trusted with a 
transaction of this nature up to the tune of US$10 Million U.S. Dollars. He is sitting on our money 
for no apparent reason and refused to give us our share but we believe that for his act of 
wickedness to us, he will never go unpunished by God. Mr. Rick Williams still resides in London and 
enjoying our collective money.Because of this we are afraid and we need your total trust and 
assurance that you must be an honest and straight-forward person.As, we are willing to try again
