I AM MR IBRAHIM YUSUF, I AM AN ACCOUNTANT WITH THE NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION

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 MULTI-NATIONALS IN THE OIL INDUSTRY IN 
FAVOUR OF N.N.P.C. THE ORIGINAL VALUE OF THIS CONTRACTS WERE DELIBERATELY OVER- INVOICED TO THE SUM 
OF USD$30,000,000.00 (THIRTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS).
THIS AMOUNT HAS BEEN APPROVED AND IS NOW READY TO BE TRANSFERRED, BEING THAT THE COMPANIES THAT 
ACTUALLY EXECUTED THESE CONTRACTS HAVE BEEN FULLY PAID AND THE PROJECTS OFFICIALLY COMMISSIONED. 
CONSEQUENTLY, MY COLLEAGUES AND I ARE WILLING TO
TRANSFER THE TOTAL AMOUNT TO YOUR ACCOUNT FOR SUBSEQUENT DISBURSEMENT, SINCE WE, CIVIL SERVANTS ARE 
PROHIBITED BY THE CODE OF CONDUCT BUREAU (CIVIL SERVICE LAW) FROM OPERATING AND/OR OPENING FOREIGN 
ACCOUNTS IN OUR NAMES. NEEDLESS TO SAY,
THE TRUST REPOSED ON YOU AT THIS JUNCTURE IS ENORMOUS. IN RETURN, WE HAVE AGREED TO OFFER YOU 25% 
OF THE TRANSFERRED SUM, WHILE 10% SHALL BE SET ASIDE FOR INCIDENTAL EXPENSES (INTERNAL AND 
EXTERNAL) BETWEEN PARTIES IN THE COURSE OF THE TRANSACTION. YOU WILL BE MANDATED TO REMIT THE 
BALANCE TO OTHER ACCOUNTS IN DUE COURSE. MODALITIES HAVE BEEN WORKED OUT AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF 
THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE AND THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (C.B.N.) FOR THE IMMEDIATE TRANSFER OF THE 
FUNDS WITHIN 14 WORKING DAYS SUBJECT TO YOUR SATISFACTION OF THE ABOVE STATED TERMS. OUR ASSURANCE 
IS THAT YOUR ROLE IS RISK FREE. TO ACCORD THIS TRANSACTION THE LEGALITY IT DESERVES AND FOR MUTUAL 
SECURITY OF THE FUNDS THE WHOLE APPROVAL PROCEDURES WILL BE OFFICIALLY AND LEGALLY PROCESSED WITH 
YOUR NAME OR THE NAME OF ANY COMPANY
YOU MAY NOMINATE AS THE BONAFIDE BENEFICIARY.
ONCE MORE, I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT HAVING PUT IN OVER TEN YEARS IN THE CIVIL SERVICE OF MY 
COUNTRY, I AM AVERSE TO HAVING MY IMAGE AND CAREER DENTED. THIS MATTER SHOULD THEREFORE BE TREATED 
WITH THE UTMOST SECRECY AND URGENCY IT DESERVES.
KINDLY EXPEDITE ACTION AS WE ARE BEHIND SCHEDULE TO ENABLE US CONCLUDE THIS TRANSFER.
THANKS FOR YOUR ANTICIPATED CO-OPERATION.
YOURS SINCERELY,
