I am Dr. ANDREW COLA, the Director For Projects with the Ministry of Petroleum. First and Foremost, 
apologize for using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this 
is due 
to the confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium. I got your contact from the 
Export and Promotion Council I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the 
execution of the deal described hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it 
as top 
secret because of the nature of the transaction. Within the Ministry of Petroluem where I work as a 
Director, and with the co-operation of four other top officials, we have in our possession as 
payment bills totaling Twenty Eight Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars 
(US$28,500,000.00) which we want to transfer abroad with the assistance and co-operation of a 
company who will receive the said funds on our behalf or a reliable foreign non-company account to 
receive such funds. More also, we are handicapped in this circumstances as the Nigerian Civil 
Code of Conduct does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in this whole 
transaction. This amount US$28,500,000.00 represents the balance of the total contract value 
on behalf of my Ministry by a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials over-invoiced 
Though the actual contract cost has been paid to the original contractor, leaving behind the 
balance in 
the tune of the said amount which we have by principle gotten approval by Key Tested Telegraphic 
Transfer (K.T.T.) to any foreign bank account you will provide by filling an application through 
the Justice 
Ministry here in Nigeria for the transfer of rights and priviledges of the former contractor to 
you. I have the 
authority of my partner involved to propose that should you be willing to assist us in the 
transaction, your 
share of the sum will be 30% of the $28.5M, 60% for us and 10% for taxation and miscellaneous 
expenses. The business itself is 100% safe on your part provided you treat it with utmost secrecy 
confidentiality. Also, your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution 
of this 
transaction. Endeavour to contact me immediately through my direct email address for confidential 
as we progress I will give you my telephone and fax number 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. And 
remember to treat this matter as very confidential because we will not comprehend any form of 
as we are still in active Government service and also remember that time is of the essence in this 
I await your response in anticipation of your fullest co-operation. 
Yours faithfully,
