Eng. Funsho Kupolokun Gruop Managing Director NNPC I am Eng. Funsho Kupolokun and presently the Gruop Managing Director NNPC. I am due for retirement within the next few months and I need your help to claim the sum of US 25.5 million deposited in a floating account with a finance institution. In the past few years, government had approved huge sum of money for us to carry out researches. We therefore awarded lots of contracts in which we used our position to inflate some of the contracts. The inflated amount is deposited in a floating account waiting to be claimed. As civil servants, we are not allowed to transfer money abroad. Infact, we cannot lay claim to such huge amount from the bank here. Therefore, we need you (a foreigner) to come forward and claim this money on our behalf. When this money comes to you, we shall come over for sharing and investment. We shall share the money as follows: 30% for you for providing assistance and 60% for us and 10% will be set aside for expenses that might be incured locally here and internationally from your side during the course of this process. please take note that the nature of your business has nothing to do with this proposal. The modality is that you will be presented as a contractor or who has already executed a contract and request for payment. Application for payment will then be made in your name. Everything is already mapped out to avoid any hitch. There is no risk in this deal but has to be kept very confidential by both parties. If you are interested, please do reply and do not hesitate to ask for further explanation if you so need. Thanking you for your expected co- operation and immediate response. Yours sincerely, Eng. Funsho Kupolokun Gruop Managing Director NNPC Tel:234 8036731569 email: email@example.com
