Dear trusted friend, Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) is a Federal Government of Nigeria Agency established and mandated to build capacity for the oil,
and solid mineral industries and to promote the acquisition of technology
Nigeria. I was its Executive Secretary/CEO until I recently resigned to pursue my political ambition in my State Yobe in the Northern part of Nigeria. The reason why I am writing to you is to seek your consent to transfer the sum of US$25,300,000 to your personal or company bank account for the purpose of my intending governorship election campaign for the 2007 Nigeria's general election and investment in real estate in your country. The US$25,300,000 was factored into a N10 billion (Ten Billion Naira) upgrading Contract of the Petroleum Training Institute Effurun to Federal University of Petroleum Engineering executed by a foreign engineering contractor. I would like you to assist me to lobby out the fund from the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) of Nigeria by filing in application for the payment of same to you or your company. All that are required to make this possible include preparing contract documents in your name and favour by a Nigerian resident Attorney, Lawyer
Legal Practitioner. I would supply you with the necessary details for
purpose and you would send them to the said Attorney, Lawyer or Legal Practitioner who would prepare the necessary applications and legal documents to enable the Federal Ministry of Finance to pay the money into your bank account without trouble. Since I quite understand how sensitive and delicate this proposal is, I am willing to offer you US$5,000,000 for your assistance, however, you will
required to foot the necessary expenses that might be required by the Attorney, Lawyer or Legal Practitioner. This is because I cannot feature prominently in the open in transferring
fund out of Nigeria to avoid the transaction being exposed to the Federal Government of Nigeria and in turn damage my political ambition of becoming the next Governor of my State in Nigeria. Please I want to assure you that this is not the same type of bogus offers being offered by some fraudulent Nigerians. If you have received similar offers in the past I would like you to verify the existence of Petroleum Technology Development Fund from the Internet
to be sure of my claim. Kindly confirm to me either by email or telephone number +234-1-876-9623
your willingness to take a shot at this offer and we can draw up a legal agreement to work together. Thank you. Sincerely, Adamu Waziri p.s. I will send you my Biography with my photo for identification. _________________________________________________________________ FREE pop-up blocking with the new MSN Toolbar - get it now! http://toolbar.msn.click-url.com/go/onm00200415ave/direct/01/
