I am a member of the federal government of nigeria contract award and monitoring committee in nigeria national petroleum corporation (nnpc) sometime ago;my committee awarded a contract to a foreign firm in nnpc.this contract was over invoiced to the tune of us$16.5m u.s.dollars. this was done deliberately the over invoicing was a deal by my committee to benefit from the project.we now want to transfer this money, which is in a suspense account with nnpc in to any overseas account which we expected you to provide for us . Share: - for providing the account where we shall remit the money into, you will be entitled to 30% of the money.60% will be for me and my partners while 10% has been mapped out from the sum to cover any expenses that may incurred by us during the course of this transfer, both locally and international expensive.to commerce this deal therefore, i would required the following: 1. your company's name or personal, address, tel & fax numbers. The above information would be used to make formal applications as a matter of procedure for the release of the money and onward transfer to your account. it does not matter whether or not your company does contract of this nature the assumption is that your company won the major contract and subcontracted it out to other companies. We have strong reliable connections and contacts at the central bank of nigeria as well as the federal ministry of finance and we have no doubt that all the money will be released and transferred if we get the necessary foreign partner to assist us in this deal. therefore, when the business is successfully concluded we shall through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the concerned government ministries for 100% security. We are ordinary civil servants and we will not want to miss this once in a life time opportunity to get rich.i want this money to be transferred to an oversea account you will provide for us, before this present democratic government starts auditing all federal owned ministries. please contact me immediately through my telephone number +234 807 3400 968 if interested in this deal.
