From: Mr. Tony Adams
Chief Auditor (NNPC)
Falomo, Ikoyi-Lagos, Nigeria
I am pleased to send my greetings to you and your family. I know this mail will definitely come to you as a surprise; I actually came about your contact through the world database on net.
I am the Chief Auditor Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). I have uncovered a floating amount of $16, 400,000. (Sixteen Million,
Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), without a clear beneficiary due to a deliberate act of over invoicing and inflating of contract value by the former Managing Director who was sacked by the President on 31st December 2008 for misappropriation of funds. This amount was discovered during our first quarter auditing of the company account which commenced since 15th of April 2009, therefore my colleague and I decided to contact someone we can trust to help us receive this money overseas. Please can we trust you?
This money ($16. 4Million USD), has already been approved for payment by the Federal Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources and is secured under Contract number MMPS/FGN/1233/MMPS-X29/98, Job Completion Certificate No: 6770024MMPS/C OF 9th Nov 2008.
I am soliciting for your assistant to help me receive this money overseas as the beneficiary of this fund, I will inform you of the necessary steps to take to facilitate the
transfer as soon as I receive your acceptance to help me. We have resolved to give you 40% of the total sum as compensation for your assistance, 55% is for us, 5% is set aside to cover the expenses we will make in the course of this transaction. Send your personal informationâs to me when replying to this mail, including your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication.
Note that this should be confidential, because the new security agents in Nigeria the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practice Commission the (ICPC) have jailed so many government officials and politicians who have siphoned billions of dollars overseas. As I write to you, so many former public office holders are facing trials right now in the court for embezzlement of public funds, and some few others have flee overseas so as not to face trials in the law courts. Since 29th May 2007 the newly elected government of
President Musa Yar'adua came to power, the security agents have been very ruthless with corrupt officials. If you find my proposal interesting, do get back to me with your informationâs. But if you do not like my proposal, please keep it to your self and donât tell anyone about it because I am still in public service.
I wait for your response.
Mr. Tony Adams.
