May I crave your indulgence to open this business discussion by a 
formal letter of this sort. It is pertinent that a business of this 
magnitude should have commenced properly with a formal meeting of you 
and us to 
enable us know ourselves, have a fore knowledge of the nature of the 
business, discuss and acquaint ourselves with the responsibilities and 
functions of parties concerned, and appropriate shares accordingly. 
However, for time factor, confidentiality and personality of people 
here in Nigeria, we choose this approach for the remittance of this  
(US$25m). Please bear with us for making the initial contact through 
e-mail. But my partners are insisting for a meeting in order not to 
into a wrong hand again. 

I am MR SANI SULEMAN,we are members of the special committee for Budget 
and Planning of the Ministry Petroleum. This committee is principally 
concerned with contract appraisal and the approval of the contracts in 
order of priorities as regards capital projects of the past military 
government of Nigeria.

With our positions, we have successfully secured for ourselves this sum 
of  (US$25m). This amount was accumulated through undeclared windfall 
sales of crude oil during the gulf war.

Hence together with two of our top officials at the Nigeria National 
Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), we plan to transfer this amount of money 
into a secure overseas account by awarding a sort of contract from the 
NNPC. To this effect I have been given the mandate by my colleagues to 
contact you and ask for your assistance. What we need from you is to 
provide a nice account in which the funds will be transferred. My 
colleagues and I have agreed to compensate you or the owner of the 
account used 
for this transaction with 30% of the total amount remitted. We shall 
have 70% 

Kindly, treat as very important and strictly confidential, I honestly 
assure you that this transaction is 100% risk-free. I look forward to 
your response and expected co-operation and God bless you.
