 Good Day,
 I am Dr.Sule Gidado,Head Accounts Department **NIGERIAN NATIONAL
PETROLEUM CORPORATION**.I am making this consultation on behalf of my
colleagues as we are seeking for a formidable foreign company/partnership for the final transfer of our total amount of $35,250,000.00USD out of the shores of our country Nigeria.
The stated amount,was as a result of an Over-Invoiced Contract that was awarded by the **NNPC** In June 1999 to a Foreign Firm for the Turn Around Maintainance Work that was carried out at the Port-Harcourt Refinery, the tiny oil rich centre of Nigeria.Meanwhile the contract was successfuly completed, executed and
commissioned and the contractor that originally executed the contract has been paid for his Job thus leaving behind the over invoiced amount.
The Federal Government and the Federal Ministry of Petroleum resources has approved the total amount of US$85,250,000.00,and the payment of foreign contractors has already started for the second quarter of our financial year 2006, as 100% of the work for the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) has been fully Completed, as we will register you/your company as a consultant and job costing contractor to NNPC so that the over Invoiced amount of $35,250,000.00USD can be transferred into your account at any given part of the world as the original contractor was last week been paid his total amount of $50,000,000.00USD.
