Senators Crescent,

Dear Friend ,

Compliment of the season.

My name is Senator Mahmud Bello, the Chairman of the Senate committee on
Niger Delta in the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
I am writing you to earnestly Solicit for your assistance in helping to
receive some sum of money into your account for safe keeping.


I have the sum of US$31,000,000.00 (Thirty One Million  United States
Dollars) that I intend to transfer overseas through your assistance as a
foreign partner.

This money is as a result of Over provision in the Federal government
budget for unpaid contract amount to foreign contractors who executed 
contract in the Niger - Delta in Petroleum industry.

This over provision was done by my committee, but all payments have been
made to beneficiaries leaving  behind the over budgeted amount which
amounts to US$31,000,000.00 which is deposited in the Nigeria Deposit
Bank here in Nigeria but as civil servants we can not make claim of the
funds or operate any foreign account which is against the code of conduct
of my country hence I am calling for your assistance to this fund into
your acount at the shortest period.

I have agreed to transfer the funds overseas for my campaign funding and
other investment purposes, private use and for investment purposes with
your help.

I am contacting you therefore, to stand in as the beneficiary to process
this fund into your custody. As soon as you consent to this I will
immediately send you title documents to the fund in your name so you can
make claim for it. I will provide you with 30% for assisting us and 10%
to be set aside for reimbursement,for expenses that may arise during the 
process of concluding the transaction.

The fund shall be transferred to you legally in accordance to all laid
down procedures governing transfer of funds. I have perfected all
modalities for thesuccessful transfer of this money to you as the
beneficiary. Finally, I have to reassure you that this transaction is
100% risk free and should be kept absolutel confidential.

Presently, you can reach me by return mail, you should also include your
telephone numbers if any, for secured communication between us.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation. I await your response. Also
Note that we need to conclude this transaction before the end of next
month as we can still make payments on last years budget till this time.

Best Regards,

Senator Mahmud Bello.
