Dear friend,

I am the Chairman of the Crude Oil Allocation Committee of the Nigerian
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), By virtue of my position I can
influence your registration as a sales representative of the oil

As a sales representative you will be given a Bonny Light Crude Oil
allocation without having to pay for it. You will only pay the cost of the
crude oil after you have sold it.
Your gain will be the commission which you are entitled to as a sales
representative after the sale of the product.

I am making this contact to you to seek your co-operation so that we can
work together as partners to actualize the above goal.

I cannot do it directly because as the Chairman of the Allocation
Committee my direct participation in this business will mean using my
office for personal interest. That will expose me to prosecution as the
law here does not permit that.

The allocation that will be issued to you is confirmable at Lloyd of
London, Citibank London and also on Shell Screen. These are the two bodies
that confirm crude oil transaction in the world.
The confirmation will make every buyer see that the transaction is real
and that you have legal right over the allocation.

Contacting me through my email, if my proposal is of interest to you, so
that I can brief you more.

Yours Truly
Eric Mensah.
