-- OFFICE OF THE CO-ORDINATOR CONTRACT REVIEW PANEL NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION. FROM THE DESK OF ; DR. ABDUL KAMAL. PRIVATE EMAIL: (firstname.lastname@example.org) ATTN: SIR/MADAM, REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE l am Dr. Abdul Kamal, the Co-coordinator of the contract Review Panel of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Sometime ago, a Contract was awarded to a Conglomerate of Foreign Companies by my Committee on behalf of the NNPC. The Contract was over invoiced to the tune of ($48,223.000.00 USD}FORTY EIGHT MILLION TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS). This was done deliberately by my colleagues and l to benefit from this project. This funds are presently lying in the NNPC accounts having observed all laid down protocols. This surplus ($48,223.000.00 USD}FORTY EIGHT MILLION TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS) is what we ask that you help us receive on arrival as well as provide an account for lodgement of the funds since it is forbidden for us government workers to operate foreign bank accounts. On final conclusion of this project, 70% of this surplus shall be for us, while 25% shall be for you and the remaining 5% shall be used to compensate either party should there be any expenses incurred. You should be informed that all arrangements have been secretly concluded to lift this money as a consignment along with a Diplomatic Cargo Vessel. Inquiries have showed that this consignment can be routed to Europe, America or Asia. This piece of information should however be kept to yourself alone as we are still very much in government service. Send me an email or fax immediately to let me know if you would be of assistance. Regards, Dr. Abdul Kamal.
