Desk of Mr. Aminu A. Babakusa
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
Group Executive Director
(Commercial and Investment)

Attn: Sir/Madam,

Please i would not want you to see this mail as one of those internet scam mails, I mean what ever 
i tell you through this mail as it means so much to me and i contacted you with recommendation from 
a reliable source.

I am Mr Aminu A. Babakusa the Group Executive Director (Commercial and Investment) in the Nigerian 
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and I head a seven-man tenders committee in charge of 
Foreign/Expatriate Contract a key person to handle a very confidential transaction based on 
unflinching trust as we have not met before.

This transaction involves the transfer of huge sum of foreign exchange (the United States Dollars) 
to a foreign account. There were a series of contracts executed by a Consortium of Multinationals 
in the oil industry in favor of NNPC among which are:

(1) The expansion and rehabilitation of the ageing pipeline network within Nigeria for crude oil 
and down stream products distribution and evacuation -US$9 Billion.
(2) Contracts for the Turn around Maintenance (TAM) of the four epileptic refineries in the country.
(3) The construction of more storage tanks and maintenance and servicing of old ones for Petroleum 
Products Storage (Depots) - US$90 Million.
(4) The construction of Escravos Gas Production Offshore facility.

The original value of these contracts was deliberately over-invoiced in the sum of USD Eight 
Million, Five Hundred Thousand ($8,500,000.00) by this committee (CRPAC) during the awards of the 
various contract. This sum ($8,500,000.00) has now been approved for payment by this committee 
(CRPAC) and is now ready to be transferred by the Central Bank of Nigeria to the account of any 
individual and or company which the CRPAC presents as the beneficiary, since the company that 
actually executed these contracts has been fully paid their fund and the projects have been 
officially commissioned.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account for 
subsequent disbursement on our behalf, since we as civil servants and we are also serving in a 
sensitive foreign payment approval committee (CRPAC) are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau 
(Civil Service Laws) from opening or operating foreign account and or dealing in foreign exchange 
in our names. Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we 
have agreed to offer you 30% of the transferred sum, while 10% shall be set aside for incidental 
expenses (internal and external) accrued between the parties in the course of the transaction. The 
balance will be used to purchase some auto-mobile spare parts and some quality tires from your 
country for importation back to my country. You must however note that this transaction is subject 
to the following terms and conditions:

{A) Our conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence
{B) That you would treat this transaction with utmost secrecy and confidentiality
(C) That you have an unflinching trust in us, and our ability to complete all official processes 
with your co-operation.
(D) That the funds would be transferred to an ordinary account which you have total control over.

Modalities have been worked out (secretly) at the highest levels of the relevant government 
departments involved and the Central Bank of Nigeria for the immediate transfer of funds within 14 
working days subject to your satisfaction of the above stated terms. Our assurance is that your 
role is risk-free. To accord this transaction the legality it deserves and for mutual security of 
the fund, the whole approval procedures will be officially and legally processed with your name or 
the name of any company you may nominate as the real beneficiary, as in an ideal situation. It is 
imperative that you bear in mind that having put in 19 years in the service of the government; I am 
averse to having my image and career dented.

This matter should therefore be treated with utmost secrecy and urgency. Kindly expedite action by 
contacting me on my e-mail address, indicating your interest in this transaction. For swift 
response to your reply, kindly indicate your fax and telephone numbers clearly so that I can 
explain further, especially by fax. I am urgently waiting your reply as payment to foreign 
contractors is usually made on quarterly basis. Please ensure you reply to my company personal 
email for security reasons. (

Yours faithfully,

Mr Aminu A. Babakusa
