Dear friend,
Firstly, let me introduce my humble self, my name is PROF. HASSAN MOHAMMED LUKMAN, the Special 
Adviser to the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria on petroleum matters.
Nigeria produces 2.018 million barrels of oil per day (bpd) and has four refineries with combined 
installed capacity of 445.000 bpd. There is the Kaduna refinery with 110,000-bpd capacity, the Old 
Port-Harcourt refinery with 60.000 bpd, the new Port-Harcourt refinery with 150.000 bpd and the 
Warri Plant with 125,000 bpd.
The national domestic demand is put at 400,000 bpd up from 350,000 bpd three years ago leaving an 
extra refinery capacity of about 45,000 bpd. In refined terms national consumption has risen to 38 
million liters per day from 25 million three years ago.
At present this refineries have undergone Turn around Maintenance (TAM) by a Chinese consortium at 
US$18 BILLION. This will up its total installed capacity to 550,000 barrels of oil per day (BPD).
The crux of this letter is that during the course of the turn around maintenance (TAM), I was able 
to track down the sum US$100 MILLION as over invoiced sum with my powers as the principal 
supervisor and as well the special adviser to the president on petroleum matters. Presently this 
money is being deposited with a private security company GLOBAL TRUST SECURITY COMPANY here in 
Nigeria, as a consignment containing family treasure.
Now, I recourse to you for an assistance to help me shield this money into you bank accounts for 
safe keep and investment purpose until my arrival to your country. As a civil/public servant that I 
am such amount of money shouldn't be represented in my bank account.
Secondly, with the ongoing probe by the independent corrupt practices and other related offence 
commission (ICPC) on top of government officials, I might be indicted. So the fear and pressure 
arising from the government have made me to contact you to help me move this money out of Nigeria.
Upon your acceptance to this proposal, I have agreed to offer you 20% for your kind assistance and 
80% go to me as the owner.
Finally, be informed that this business is highly confidential, genuine and 100% risk free. I will 
advise you on the steps as soon as I receive your reply and be informed that this letter is being 
addressed personally to you alone. Please if you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me 
on my personal contact information's: Tel: 234-80384438,  and include your private telephone 
numbers for smooth communication. Expecting your response immediately while looking forward to a 
healthy business relationship with you.
As soon as i receive a response from you, i will forward to you the my international passport copy 
and the certificate of deposit of these consignments.
This is very important, please handle with care and never take this business as a child's play. I 
contacted you because my faith is telling me that you are quite trustworthy and more so that you 
will help me.
Warmest regards,
