From: Executive Director Finance & Accounts. Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) The Federal Capital Territory Abuja, Nigeria. Telephone: +234 8064624032 US$35MiLLION CONSULTANCY PAYMENT TRANSFER DEAL: I write to solicit your Partner as a Consultant in a US$35Million Oil Sector Business Deal. Kindly oblige me with you careful attention. My name is Mark Edeh, the Group Executive Director, Finance & Accounts Department at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). As you may be aware, my Country Nigeria (West-Africa) is the World Sixth Largest Producer of Crude Oil and my Office is the Sole Government Department responsible for the Management and Disbursement of the country revenue from daily crude oil sales running into Billions of Dollars. Over the past 6 years, I and some of my colleagues have used the influence of our various strategic offices to successfully facilitate various International Oil Deals on behalf of some Top Government Officials and their foreign counterparts in the USA, Europe and Asia. In the course of these oil transfer deals, we were able to secretly secure a US$35Million Over-Invoiced Open Consultancy Payment Voucher for ourselves. We have cleverly masterminded Government Approval and Issuance of a Payment Voucher for US$35Million ready to be transferred to any Foreign Individual or Corporate Entity that we choose to present to the NNPC as the Official Site Consultant to Japan Energy Corporation for a US$980Million General Job Order for Repairs and Servicing of Two of NNPC Oil Refineries. The Job Order Major Contractor, Japan Energy Corporation has since been paid off with the sum of US$945Million upon completion of the job order in 2006, thus leaving us with US$35Million in question for which we have now secured government approval for immediate transfer to the any foreign entity we decide to present to government as the site consultant. This is where we want you to come in. Foolproof modalities are in place to use the official influences of our offices to easily Slot in Your Name and Nominated Bank Account details into the US$35Million Approved Government Payment Voucher for the immediate transfer of the funds to any foreign bank account you may present, preferably an account that you are the sole beneficiary or one that you control. I am sure you will not hesitate to take advantage of the golden opportunity; if so be obliged to get back to me immediately for further details. For using your private or corporate name to transfer the funds to your foreign bank account, my colleagues have asked me to offer you 30% of the US$35Million, but we are still open to negotiations. This proposal is 100% watertight and risk free. My colleagues and I are due for imminent retirement after an average of over two decades in government service, you can then imagine how important and curtail this deal is to us. We really need your absolute commitment and honesty. Please if you are willing to collaborate with us to actualize the deal, send your reply with the following information to EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org 1) YOUR NAME, 2) ADDRESS, 3) TELEPHONE, 4) FAX, 5) OCCUPATION, 6) YOUR COMPANY BANK ACCOUNT INFOPRMATION IN FULL, We look forward to your response. Sincerely, Mark Edeh. Group ED Finance and Accounts, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporations (NNPC). Telephone: +234 8064624032
