Good Day
I am Dr. Philip Danjuma a director in the project and planning
department of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, I head a
seven man Tenders Board Committee in charge of contract award and
Payment approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable
and reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction, which
involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account.
There were series of contracts executed by a consortium of
Multinationals in the oil industry in favor of the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) among which were;
1)    The expansion of 865 kilometer cross border pipeline to NNPC
largest operational site in Secunda, South Africa for US$1,2 billion
Mozambique Natural Gas Project.
2)    Contract for Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of various Refineries
in the country.
3)    The construction of Storage Tanks for Petroleum Product
(Depots)-US$194 Million.
The original value of of these contracts  were deliberately over
invoiced in the sum of Twenty Five million, Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars US$25,500,000.00) which has recently been
approved and now ready to be transferred. However the companies that
actually executed the aforementioned contract have been fully paid and
the projects officially commissioned.
Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total
amount into your account for subsequent disbursement, since we as
civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil
Service Laws) from opening and/or operating foreign accounts in our
Needless to say, the trust reposed in you at this juncture is
enormous. In return, we have agreed among-st ourselves to offer you
30% of the transferred sum.
You must however NOTE that this transaction is subject to the
following terms and conditions; our conviction of your transparent
honesty and diligence, that you must accord this transaction with
utmost confidentiality and secrecy.
Moralities have been worked out at the highest levels of the Ministry

remittance of the funds within 10 - 14 working days subject to your
satisfaction of the above terms.
Our assurance is that your role shall be totally risk free. To accord
this transaction the legality it deserves, and for mutual security of
funds, the whole procedures shall be legally processed with your name
or any company you may nominate as the bona fide final beneficiary.
Once more, I want you to understand that having put in over 12 years
in the Civil Service of my country, I am very  much averse to having
my image and career dented. This matter should therefore be treated
with utmost secrecy and urgency. Kindly expedite immediate action as
we are well behind schedule to enable us include this transfer in the
last batch of the 2015 contract payments.
Please kindly forward the below details to me immediately to enable me
start the work.
