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 
involved 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 fall 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.
