NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION.
FEDERAL SECRETARIAT,FALOMO- LAGOS, NIGERIA.
BUSINESS PROPOSAL: TRANSFER OF US$ 41.5 M (FORTY-ONE MILLION, FIVE
HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS).
First, I must solicit your trust and strictest confidence in this transaction, this is by nature of
the top secret information I am about to devulge to you. You were introduced to us by my
mutual aquaintance from the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce, Foreign Trade Division, who
does not know of the nature of what I am about to introduce to you. He only knows that I
have some funds to invest abroad, hence he recommended you.
I am the Director of Engineering & Project of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
(N.N.P.C) in Lagos, Nigeria. I am seeking your assistance to enable me transfer the sum of
US$41,500,000.00 into your private company account for mutual benefits. This money
came about as a result of a contract for the supply of two thousand, three hundred and
sixty-seven computer unit, installation and the Y2K compliance turn-around maintenance
executed on behalf of my Ministry (N.N.P.C), in the year 1999. This contract was officially
assigned to be awarded and executed by two foreign contractors at the tune of
US$105,500,000.00, but in the course of my negotiation, I bargained with only one foreign
contractor, a Bulgarian firm which now executed the contract at the cost
ofUS$64.000.000.00. Thus leaving the remaining US$41.5M floating in the escrow
account of the Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N) to the benefits of we the three members of
the contract award panel unknown to the contractor and any other person in my Ministry.
This contract has been satisfactorily executed and inspected as the Bulgarian firm is
presently securing his payment from my Ministry.
It is however to this effect that I seek your maximum assistance and approval to present
your company name alongside with the Bulgarian contractor as the second foreign
contractor to enable me transfer the difference (US$41.5M) into your account for further
investment depending on your advice.
On actualization of the transaction, the funds will be shared thus:
1. 30% of the money would go to you for acting as the beneficiary of the funds.
2. 10% for reimbursement to both parties for incidental expenses that may be incurred in
the course of the transaction for insurance, phone bills, documentation etc.
3. 60% to we three members of the Contract Award Panel.
All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for the smooth actualization of the
transaction within fourteen working days of commencement after receipt of the following
information by fax: Your company's Name, Address, Phone/Fax number and activities not
forgetting also to include a contact email address. Also, if we opt for electronic transfer only
other than payment by solar bank draft or cash call program, then your bank account
The above information will enable me make the application and lodge claims to the
concerned Ministries in favor of your company or name and it is pertinent to state here that
this deal is entirely based on trust and the fear of God.
If you are able to handle this, then feel free to reach me by fax on: 234-1-759-6668 or on
phone number 234-1774-7231 . Also furnish me with your own phone, fax numbers and also
your email address, as I will be sending you immediately I receive your positive response
some classified documents.
Thanks in anticipation for your positive response.
Dr Okon Okon.
