FROM THE DESK OF Mr.Wilson George 

Dear friend, 

Briefly, may I take the liberty to introduce myself as Mr Wilson George,the 
Deputy Director of the Gas Project and Engineering Department of the 
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).I am privileged to be the 
Chairman to audit and review payment of foreign contractors.I carried out an 
Internal Audit with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) only 
to discover the sum US$45.5M (Fourty Five million five hundred thousand 
United State Dollars only). 

Outstanding. I informed the director general whose duty it is to oversee the 
daily activities of the corporation. I asked him of his opinion over the 
discovered fund, he confirmed that and having confirmed the political 
situation in our country and my position as the Chairman of the Federal 
Contract Review Committee we arrived at the conclusion to use this 
opportunity to ensure future by remitting the fund to a trusted person or 
company?s account outside Nigeria for our own use. All we are looking is a 
trustworthy and honest foreign partner whom we can use his company or 
individual account to get this outstanding fund remitted oversea. 

On my side, this is a lifetime opportunity considering the economic problem 
in Nigeria and we cannot afford to let it go. Being a civil servant we are 
not allow to operate a foreign account or own foreign company hence my 
picking you and your company for this transaction.Hoping you will give me 
your maximum co-operation with every confidentiality. 

As a matter of fact, all modalities for the successful transfer of this 
money have been worked out, the present Civilian Government has approved the 
payment of all foreign contractors and this US$45.5M outstanding is 
included, so if this project attracts your interest then 30% of the total 
fund will be given to you as your share for using your account and financial 
assistance in remitting the fund, 60% goes to us the officials and the 
remaining 10% has been mapped out to cover all the expenses to be inurred by 
both parties during the course of  this transaction,I have in plan to invest 
some of my share in your country with your help in this view. You will be 
required to provide the following: 

1.Beneficiary?s Name and Address 
2. Your official and private Telephone and Fax Number 

Contact me immediately as soon as you receive this mail through my private 
email address for security reasons.( 

I am looking forward to your favourable and urgent response. 
Best regards, 
Mr Wilson George
