Dear Sir,
This is a proposal in context but actually an appeal
soliciting your assistance in an urgent
transaction requiring maximum confidence.Though this approach appears 
desperate, I can assure you that whatever questions you would need to ask or 
any other thing you will need to know regarding this proposal will be 
adequately answered to give you a clearer understanding of it, so as to 
arrive at a successful conclusion.

I am Mr. Philips  Mba, Chief Accountant to the Contract Award and 
Implementation Commttee (C.A.I.C) in the Nigeria National Petroleum 
Sometimes in 2003 , my committee awarded a contract to a conglomerate of 
foreign companies atttached to NNPC.
The contract was over-invoiced to the tune of us$10.5Million this was done 
deliberately, the over-invoicing was a deal by member of the committee to 
benefit from the project.
We now desire to tranfer this money, which is presently in a suspense 
account of NNPC with the central Bank of Nigeria into an overseas account 
which we expected you to assist and provide.
For providing the accountwhere we shall remit the money, you will be 
enititled to 30% of the money. 60% will be for my partner, and me while 10% 
has been mapped out from the the total sum. This is because as a top civil 
servant, we are not allowed to operate foreign account which is against the 
civil service code of conduct in the country.
What I will require from you;
(1) The name and address of your bank
(2) Your account number/ swift code
(3) Your private Tel/Fax number
(4) Company letter headed paper
The above information will be used to process the fund for the release of 
the money for onward transfer to your account.
It does not matter whether or not your company does project of this nature 
described here, the assumption is that you won a major contract and 
subcontracted it out to other companies or firms of related fields win major 
contracts and subcontracts to more specialized firms for execution of such 
contracts. We have strong connections at the Central bank of Nigeria and The 
Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubt that all this money will be 
released and transfer if we get the necessary foreign Partner(s) for 
Therefore, when the business is successfully concluded, we shall through our 
same connections withdraw all documents used from all the government 
ministries for 100% security. If this proposal is of interest to you, then 
contact me through my Private E-mail
I wait in anticipation of your cooperation.
Yours faithfully

Mr. Philips  Mba
