The Desk Of:
Dr Moses Ike (Principal Auditor)
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)
Compliments of the day to you. I wish to extend this
mutual business proposal to you with the hope that you will gladly
I am the principal auditor of the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation. A post I have held for the past three years. In the
course of discharging my duty last year, I discovered that some
government officials in the past, committed some irregularities in the
form of over-invoiced contract values which eventually go into their
private bank accounts.
What interest me most and for which reason I am writing you is this
particular contract which was awarded to a foreign contractor, it was
over estimated by the tune of us$5 m (five million u.s.dollars).
This contract has been completed and commissioned and the contractor
fully paid, but the US$ 5m over estimated value of the contract is
still lying at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Because of the haste with which the last government was removed from
office, these men had no chance of collecting this money before
leaving office. But as a result of updated payments advise at the
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN),it has been awaiting transfer to a
foreign account. In my report,I recommended that this money should be
paid but on the condition that the contractor should be informed. My
recommendation was accepted and I have been given the go-ahead order
to get in-touch with the foreign contractors, but since the contractor
has been fully paid for the job he did, I want to divert this money to
another foreign account.
Having done all the necessary ground work, this money is in my
possession and I am looking forward for a trust worthy person into
whose private or company's account this money will put with you as my
agent. You are therefore requested to kindly allow me to transfer this
money into your account so that I can withdraw this money when I want
Upon the transfer of this money, 65% of the total sum will be for me
and my colleagues while 30% shall be for you the account owner and the
remaining 5% shall be set aside to refund expenses made in the course
of the transaction.
Be assured that this business is risk-free but the keyword is the
confidentiality due to the nature of the transaction and my sensitive
position in the ministry.
Kindly treat as urgent and contact me immediately through my e-mail
address You will be fully detailed when I hear from you.
Your banking particulars, i.e account number, telex, beneficiary, and
your private telephone and fax numbers are vital to the success of
this transaction for updating and remittance protocol.
