Robert Wool, Chief AUDITOR NNPC
Dear friend.
I am Mr. Robert Wool an American working with the Nigeria oil industry. With my position as the Foreign Auditor I was to discover that there is an over invoice sum of $124M (ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FOUR MILLION DOLLARS). This money has been lying dormant in the account. Now I and my colleague are top officials with the accounting department and we have discussed and decided to push this fund outside the country for our personal use. This is a tough decision but after due consideration we realized that this money has been long forgotten and there is no risk associated with us transferring this money to your account. We have done our feasibility studies on how this money will be transferred to your account:
First, we will register your name and your company with the appropriate authority as an existing company that executes contract with the oil industry here. Thereafter, your details will be submitted for approval with the ministry concerned, of which with I and my colleague here we will monitor and speedy up the process of all the approvals which might take us 7 working days. And the money will be transferred to your account for our investment.
Please note that I am an American and I have serious reputation to protect, hence I decided to invest this money under your personal care.
As soon as we got the approvals and the money transferred to your account I will meet you to discuss more on my investment. Look my dear, after careful studying, I and my colleague have agreed to take 60%, and 10% will be mapped out for any expenses you or I may incur during the process of this transaction, While 30% is for you for helping us with this transaction, knowing fully well that I am using this money to invest in your line of business.
Kindly reply to this message to enable me know your position and also to advice you on how we will go about it. I am trusting on your full understanding of the above and the need for absolute confidentiality and waiting with interest on your reply.
Best regards,
Mr. Robert Wool.
