We have the pleasure to make this surprising but mutually benefiting business proposal.My name is 
MR aminu yusuf a member of the newly inaugurated committee for the privatization of the refineries 
of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, in Nigeria. The members of the committee are 
interested in the importation of goods into the country with funds presently floating in the 
Central Bank of Nigeria / Nigerian National

Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) foreign payments account. I got your address through the office of the 
Nigerian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The federal military government of Nigeria, intends to lease the three existing petroleum 
refineries to private individuals and companies. This is to make the refineries more viable, 
resourceful and to eliminate

undue wastage and fraud. This privatization is in-line with the recommendations of the World Bank 
and International Monetary Fund (IMF) as a prerequisite for future financial assistance.

The refineries are heavily indebted to many companies and my committee has the mandate (task) of 
compiling the names of these companies and debt owed them and also recommend for payment, all 

that have been fully executed. With our position in the committee, which comprises of my ministry, 
federal ministry of petroleum resources, Nigerian National Petroleum corporation (NNPC), the federal

Ministry of Finance (FMF) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), we have successfully secured for 
ourselves, the sum of US $73,000,000 (seventy-three million United States Dollars). This sum was 

by carefully inflating the amount of indebtedness by this amount (US $73,000,000). We need a 
reliable company to be included in the list of companies to be paid. This company will be paid for 
a contract

executed in Kaduna Refinery in 1993.

I was therefore mandated in trust by members of the committee, to seek a foreign partner into whose 
account we could transfer the sum of US $73,000,000, hence I am writing you this letter. We have 
agreed to

share the funds thus:

1) 70% for us (the committee members)

2) 20% for you (the account owner)

3) 10% will be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses that will be incurred 
in the course of this transaction

It is from our 70% that we wish to commence the importation business. We also need assurance from 
you that you will let us have our share once the inflated amount (US $73,000,000.00) is transferred 

your account.

The payment will be done by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) through its correspondent bank. What 
we need from you, is that you provide a vital account into which the funds will be 

Note that this transaction is 100% safe and guaranteed since the law under which our committee was 
set up, has empowered us to disburse all the funds.

We shall commence the transfer of the funds immediately we receive the following information by 

1) Your company name and full address

2) Your bank's name, telephone and fax number

3) Your account number and name of would be beneficiary

The above information will enable us put up letters of claim and job description to the respective 
ministries for the issuance of the mandatory fund release approval/recommendations. This way, your 

will be recognized and accepted as the beneficiary of the contract entitlements before the final 
remittance to your nominated account, by the Central Bank of Nigeria, being paying bank.

Note that we will be responsible for the payment of the federal inland revenue tax on behalf of 
your company and a contract agreement between your company and the Nigerian National Petroleum 

shall be drawn up and antedated showing that your company has a legitimate contract with the NNPC 
and must be paid.

We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit absolute confidentiality from 
you in this transaction.

My regards 

Mr aminu yusuf
