Sir, I got your reference from your country's internet trade directory. I hope= you would know the essence of my contact with you. I sincerely promise t= hat the deal is 100% risk-free to both sides, hence our top powers to exe= cute it. My name is, Engr. Tony C. Chukwueke, Head of the above department of Petr= oleum Resources (DPR). My term of reference involves the award of contrac= ts to multinational companies. My office is saddled with the responsibili= ty of contract award, screening, categorization and prioritization of pro= jects embarked upon by Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) as well as= feasibility studies for selected projects and supervising the project co= nsultants involved. A breakdown of the fiscal expenditure by this office as at the end of las= t fiscal quarter of 2005 indicates that DPR paid out a whooping sum of US= $2B (Two Billion United States Dollars) to successful local and foreign c= ontractors. The DPR is now compelling beneficiaries to be paid for this f= irst Quarter of the year 2007. Pls take a look at this article: http://ww= w.businessdayonline.com/?c=3D132&a=3D7129. You can also browse on the Department of Petroleum Resources website; www= .dprnigeria.com The picture inset is my recent photo. The crux of this letter is that the finance/contract department of the DP= R under my instruction deliberately over-invoiced the contract value of t= he various contracts awarded. In the course of disbursements, my departme= nt has been able to accumulate the sum of $150M (One Hundred and fifty Mi= llion U.S Dollars) as the over-invoiced sum. This money is currently in a suspense account of the DPR account with the= Debt Reconciliation Committee (DRC). We now seek to process the transfer= of this fund officially as contract payment to you as a foreign contract= or, who will be fronting for us as the beneficiary of the fund. In this w= ay we can facilitate these funds into your nominated foreign account for = possible investment abroad. We are not allowed as a matter of government = policy to operate any foreign account to transfer this fund into. However, for your involvement in assisting us with this transfer into you= r nominated account we have evolved a sharing formula as follows: (1) 30% for you as the foreign partner (2) 65% for me and my colleagues (3) 5% shall be set aside to offset expenditures We shall be relying on your advice as regards investment of our share in = any business in your country. Be informed that this business is genuine a= nd 100% safe considering the high-power government officials involved. Send your private fax/telephone numbers . Upon your response through emai= l first. we shall provide you with further information on the procedures.= Feel free to do so please. All enquiries should be directed to me. Looking forward to a good business relationship with you. I shall tender all other formal security and communication identities whe= n I get your reply to this proposal throuh this e-mail address thus- drde= email@example.com Sincerely, Engr. Tony C.
