TO A FOREIGN FIRM IN THE PTF BY MY COMMITTEE. THIS CONTRACT WAS OVER 
INVOICED TO THE TUNE OF US$21.5M US DOLLARS. THIS WAS DONE DELIBRATELY. 
THE OVER- INVOICING WAS A DEAL BETWEEN ME AND THE CONTRACT AWARD 
COMMITTEE OF NNPC TO BENEFIT FROM THE PROJECT. WE NOW WANT TO TRANSFER THIS 
MONEY WHICH IS IN A SUSPENSE ACCOUNT WITH PTF IN MY BANK INTO ANY OVERSEA 
ACCOUNT WHICH WE EXPECT YOU TO PROVIDE FOR US.

PROVIDING THE ACCOUNT WHERE WE SHALL REMIT THE MONEY.10% HAS BEEN MAPPED 
OUT FROM THE TOTAL SUM TO COVER ANY EXPENSES THAT MAY BE INCURRED BY US 
DURING THE COURSE OF THIS TRANSFER, BOTH LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL 
EXPENSES. IT MAY INTEREST YOU TO KNOW THAT SIMILAR TRANSACTION WAS CARRIED 
OUT WITH ONE MR. PATRICE MILLER, PRESIDENT OF CRANE INTERNATIONAL TRADING

AND TELEX:6731689. THE DEAL WAS CONCLUDED AND ALL COVERING DOCUMENTS 
WERE FOWARDED TO MR. MILLER TO AUTHENTICATE THE CLAIM. ONCE THE FUNDS 
WERE TRANSFERRED, MR. MILLER PRESENTED HIS BANK WITH ALL THE LEGAL 
DOCUMENTS AND REMITTED THE WHOLE FUNDS TO ANOTHER BANK ACCOUNT AND DISAPPEARED 
COMPLETELY. MY COLLEAGUES WERE SHATTERED SHOCKED, SINCE SUCH 
OPPORTUNITIES ARE NOT EASY TO COME BY. AT THIS JUNCTURE, I WOULD LIKE TO LET YOU 
KNOW THAT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ASSISTING US IN THIS DEAL,

MIGHT ALSO INTEREST YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE ORDINARY CIVIL SERVANTS WHO
