Dr. harrison.
Director, Project Implementation,
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation,
Suite 54,NNPC PLaza,Falomo Office Complex,
Ikoyi - Lagos.
It is my great pleasure in writing you this letter on
behalf of myself my colleagues.

Your particulars were given to me by a member of the
Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) who was at the Federal Government Delegation to your country during a trade exhibition. I have decided to seek a confidential cooperation with you in the execution of the deal
described hereunder for the benefit of all parties and
hope you will keep it as top secret because of the nature of this business.

Within the Ministry of Petroleum Resources where I
work as a Director, Project Implementation and with the cooperation of four other top officials, we have in our possession as overdue payment bills totalling
Thirty five Million, Five Hundred Thousand U. S.Dollars (US$35,500,000.00) which we want to transfer abroad
with assistance and co-operation of a foreign company/individual to receive the said fund on our behalf
or a reliable foreign non-company account to receive
such funds. Moreso, we are handicapped in the circumstances as the Nigerian Civil Service Code of Conduct does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in the whole transaction.

The amount represents the balance of the total
contract value executed on behalf of my Ministry by a foreign contracting firm which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately. 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 Telegraphic Transfer (T.T) to foreign bank account you will provide by filing in an application through the Federal Ministry of Justice for the transfer of rights and privileges of the former
contractor to you.

Since the new civilian government of my country is
determined to pay every foreign contractor all debts owed so as to maintain good relationship with foreign government and
non-government financial agencies,therefore we have decided to include our bills for approvals with the cooperation of some officials from the Federal Ministry of Finance and the
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
We are seeking your assistance in providing a vital
account or any virgin bank account into which we can remit this money by acting as our main partner and trustee. This we can do by swapping of account and changing of beneficiary and other forms of documentation upon application for
claim to reflect the payment and approvals to be
secured on behalf of you. This processes being pre-arranged with the principal trustee of the original contractor and with
the consent of the original contractor.

I have the authority of my partners involved to
propose that should you be willing to assist us in the transaction your share of the sum will be 30% of the US$35.5 million, 60% for us and 10% for taxation and
miscellaneous expenses.

The business itself is 100% safe, on your part
provided you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality. Also your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will
not disappoint me. Endeavour to e-mail me to know your
position and include your confidential telephone and fax numbers.
Thanks for your cooperation.
