Hello sir, This is for your attention, its confidential and for your eyes need to go through the information in the next pages with careful deliberation and caution, as a hurried and careless consideration of the letter in front of you now may make you lose millions of dollars, that would have being yours! I wish you the best of luck. In 1993, the government of this country made an excess of 400 billion dollars extra oil revenue due to the embargo that was placed on almost half of all oil exporting countries around the world to the United States of America, and also due to the oil gulf windfall, during the American first-gulf war. The money came rolling in hugely and for the first time in the history of this country, we were faced with a lot of money without expenditure in sight. Before the embargo was lifted and the war ended, the country has made over 400 billion dollars excess crude oil money. The importance of this letter is to familiarize you sir with the fact that, right now, the money in question is still intact in the government treasury in the country's external country reserve. And fortunate enough, I belong to the board of trustee in charge of the administration of this fund. Due to the level of corruption in this country, our political leaders have always plundered and waste this huge money on time wasting-projects that have failed to yield positive result. If left unchecked, they will plunder and spend all this money, without bringing anything positive out of it. As a civil servant, I cannot use this money for anything and I cant also move it nor spend it, as my jobs ethics and conduct does not permit me to, but as one of the director-general of the Ghana National petroleum corporation, I can authorize the movement of this cash to person who, within my jurisdiction and prerogatives is qualified to be a contractor with the organization I head. (The NGPC). it becomes imperative therefore that i source out by this regrettable means persons who can front as contractors so that we can under the guise of awarding contracts, pay out money to them(inflated) to carry out projects for the Ghana National petroleum corporation(NGPC). For example, if you are to execute a project for the supplies of petrol-chemicals to the corporation at the cost of 300 million dollars, we approve the payment of about 800million dollars (60% extra), so that the extra on it will be divided between you and the board of directors here. It is that easy and cool, all you have to do now is assure us of your commitment or otherwise to this proposal so we can know the way forward. The board of trustees has decided to invest theirs in the forex market and shares of blue chip companies all over the world. So that all returns will be channeled to charity homes and endeavor away from the corrupt political leaders we are unfortunately saddled to serve. If you prove yourself reliable, you may even be allowed to invest on their behalf. If you are down for this deal, then we need to know you a little.... We shall need your name to be on check, and perhaps address and occupation, so that we can start to facilitate how a contract will be awarded to you. We shall also need the name of your bank to receive money and all other important informationís as we may require during the transaction. I shall also want to beg your indulgence to please be honest with me; I am a civil servant with a very limited income and I see this opportunity as an avenue for me to be made for life. You have to assure me that you will keep your part of the bargain. for example, a Mexican eloped with almost 250 million dollars from this kind of deal in last year December, and it nearly destroy the closely knitted trust in between the board of trustees down here, it took the intervention of the minister of petroleum resources before the rancor was settled, and the Mexican found. I wonít want a repetition of that. Well, it is left to you now, to seize this opportunity and grab life by the horns. The choice is yours.dont forgets the need to be secretive about these...... lots of money and big names are involved here. For the board of trustees barril walter.t(dr) Send your replies to Hope to hear from you soon.
