DEAR FRIEND,

I MAKE THIS INTRODUCTION BASED ON MY REGARD FOR YOUR CREDIBILITY. MY NAME IS ENGR. RICARDO ZEBUS; I WORK WITH THE Sao Tome And Principe NATIONAL PETROLEUM AGENCY. TO BE PRECISE, I OVERSEE EUROPE OPERATIONS FOR THE AGENCY.

MY POSITION IN THE AGENCY ENTITLES ME TO RECOMMEND OIL ALLOCATION BIDDERS AND ACTUALIZE OIL LIFTING AND EXPLORATION ALLOCATION LICENSES TO MY CANDIDATES BASED ON MY INTEREST.

IN 2003, I FACILITATED AND ACTUALIZED THE LICENSE OF A CANDIDATE. ABUSINESSMAN FROM IRAQ. THE LICENSE WAS FOR 5 YEAR AT 24 MILLION BBLS/12 MONTHS. DUE TO REASONS UNKNOWN TO ME, I HAVE NOT HEARD FROM THIS MAN TILL SINCE NOVEMBER 2003.

THE LICENSE BEEN VALID TILL DATE (AS I ALWAYS ENSURE THAT I KEEP TO MY SIDE OF THE BARGAIN), I HAVE DECIDED TO BEGIN USING THE LICENSE FROM THIS MONTH. I AM IN NEED OF A PARTNER WHOM I CAN TRUST. I WILL PACKAGE THIS PARTNER AS THE ALLOCATION LICENSE BENEFICIARY. DUE TO MY POSITION IN THE PETROLEUM AGENCY, I CANNOT HANDLE THIS POSITION. YOU HAVE ALL THE QUALITIES I NEED FOR THAT PARTNER. THIS IS WHY I AM CONTACTING YOU.

WITH THE CURRENT OF EVENTS IN SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE, WE SHALL BE ABLE TO LIFT A MINIMUM OF 1.5 MILLION BARRELS OF SLCO PER MONTH. THIS WILL FETCH US AN AVERAGE OF US$80 MILLION PER MONTH. I HAVE READY BUYERS WHO WOULD SCRAMBLE FOR ANY NUMBER OF BARRELS WE LIFT.
THIS IS WHAT I PROPOSE:

1.YOU PROVIDE ME WITH YOUR COMPANY NAME WHICH SHALL BE USED IN PLACE OF THE INITIAL LICENSE OPERATOR.

2. I WILL ENSURE THAT YOUR COMPANY NAME IS RECOGNIZED AS THE LICENSE OPERATOR AND THAT WE HAVE A LAY CAN DATE FOR AT LEAST MIN OF 1 MILLION BARRELS PER MONTH, A MAXIMUM OF 2 MILLION BARRELS PER MONTH. STARTING FROM FEBUARY.

3. I WILL ENSURE THAT ALL LIFTING PROCEDURES ARE IN PLACE AND BUYERS READILY AVAILABLE.

4.YOU STAND IN AS THE LICENSE OPERATOR FOR ALL LIFTING AND SALES TRANSACTIONS, WE SHALL OPEN AN ACCOUNT FOR THE RECEIPT OF THE OIL SALE PROCEEDS IN WHICH BOTH OF US SHALL BE SIGNATORIES TO THE ACCOUNT.

5. WE SHALL SPLIT THE OIL SALE PROCEEDS IN THE RATIO OF 50:50 EQUITY SHARE. EQUITY WILL BE AT THE END OF EVERY ANNUAL QUARTER.
PLS NOTE: NO THIRD PARTY ARRANGEMENT SHALL BE ALLOWED.

I BELIEVE YOU ARE A MAN OF WISDOM AND INTELLIGENCE. THIS OFFER I MAKE TO YOU IS BASED ON UTMOST GOOD FAITH. I COULD BE JEOPARDIZING MY POSITION IN THE AGENCY IF WORD OF THIS GOES OUT. THEREFORE WITHOUT MINCING WORDS, I RELY ON YOU FOR UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY ON EVERY BIT OF DETAIL RELATING TO THIS TRANSACTION. I WILL BE SENDING THIS LETTER TO YOU BY EMAIL AND FAX. I AM IN LONDON AT THE MOMENT. UPON YOUR POSITIVE RESPONSE, I WILL BE WILLING TO FORWARD TO YOU PROOF OF MY PROPOSITION.

I LOOK FORWARD TO A PROSPECTIVE BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US.

THANKS

FAITHFULLY
