Nigeria Contract Award and Monitoring Committee (CAMC) of the Petroleum
(Special) Trust Fund (PTF).
Sometime ago to be precise by early last year, several contracts were
awarded to a conglomerate of Foreign Companies by my committee on which
i oversee on behalf of PTF, the contracts sum were over-invoiced in all
the contracts awarded and amounted to the tune of US $15.6 Million in
total.This was done deliberately, as the over-invoicing was a deal by
members of my committee to benefit from the project as we intend securing
the future of our lives after retirement which is near having put in long
service in Government. We now desire to transfer the money,which is
presently lying in a suspense of the PTF in a Correspondent Bank of the
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) into an overseas account which we expect you

projects of this nature as described here, the assumption here is that you
won a major contract and subcontracted it out to other companies.As more

execution of such contracts and thus we are confident that with this fact
in place ,the transaction will be successfuly executed without any hitches

be released and transferred if we get the necessaryforeign partners to

the same connections withdraw all documents used in the execution of
this transaction from all the concerned government ministries invovled for

conduct forbids us from owning foreign company or running foreign account.
