NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION (NNPC) ENGR.JOEL OKOH, GROUP MANAGING DIRECTOR. WESTERN REGIONAL OFFICE, ANNEX, FALOMO-IKOYI, LAGOS, NIGERIA. Attn: I am Engr. Joel Okoh, the group managing director with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). I seek your confidence and assistance in a business relationship for our both mutual benefits. In 1998, a contract was awarded to a German Contractor for the Turn Around Service Maintenance of our four major refineries here in Nigeria and was grossly over-invoiced up to the tune of $296,000,000.00USD (Two Hundred and Ninety Six Million United States Dollars). The total contract sum was $260,000,000.00USD (Two Hundred and Sixty Million United States Dollars) but as a result of the over-invoicing, it was raised up to $296,000,000.00USD (Two Hundred and Ninety Six Million United States Dollars) and the contractor has been fully paid i.e $260,000,000.00USD (Two Hundred and Sixty Million United States Dollars). We however seek your assistance and support to enable us transfer the remaining sum of $36,000,000.00USD (Thirty Six Million United States Dollars) into your bank account or any other reliable bank account in your country for possible investments in Real Estate and other good ventures. The modalities to effect this transfer has been worked out as we are going to use our position here to place you as the contractor who the contract was awarded to and having accomplished the contract wish to apply for payments. We shall scrap every detail of the former contractor and replace it with yours to enable you apply for payments on our behalf as the beneficiary. There are other documents to be obtained to support this transfer in your favour while we are assuring you that there is no risk involved in this transaction as all modalities will take the resemblance of a real contractor. We have arranged to compensate you with 20% of the total funds, setting aside 5% to cover all expenses that might be incurred by both of us to facilitate the transfer into your nominated bank account. All contract documents will be re-endorsed by you at the appropriate time to avoid any hitch while processing the transfer of the fund while we shall be entering into a Partnership Agreement to safe guard our both interest in view of this transaction. It is expected that this transaction is going to be concluded in the next 21 bank working days given fullest cooperation. If this business proposal is okay to you, please kindly get back to me through this e-mail address to enable me enlighten you more on how to conclude this transaction: (email@example.com) Do please indicate your full interest by sending to me your telephone and fax number when replying this message. Best Regards, Engr. Joel Okoh. _________________________________________________________________Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger!
