Nigerian National Pet., Corp. (NNPC). P.M.B 1122, Abuja -Nigeria. Attn: President/CEO., STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL. I am a member of the Federal Government of Nigeria Contract Award and Monitoring Committee in the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). Sometime ago, a contract was awarded to a foreign firm in NNPC by my Committee. This contract was over invoiced to the tune of US$21.5M 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 into any Overseas Account which we expect 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 total sum to cover any expenses that may be incurred. 1. Your company\'s name, address, telephone and fax numbers. 2. Your bank name, address, account and routing 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 projects of this nature described here. 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 (CBN), 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. Please contact me immediately through my telephone Number OR E-MAIL: email@example.com ,whether or not you are interested in this deal. If you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal. I wait in anticipation of your full co-operation. Yours Faithfully, Mr.Esperanse Momoh.
