FROM THE DESK OF:
MR. YEMI SADO
NAPIMS, IKOYI LAGOS.
Firstly, I apologize for breaking into your privacy, however I have decided to contact you through this medium due to the urgency of this proposed transaction. I urge you to consider the content of this letter with an open mind and a willingness to appreciate it's implications in all it's ramifications.It is with my profond dignity that I write you this very important and highly confidential letter. I must first solicit your strictest confidentiality in this transaction. This is because the most important requirement for the success of this transactions is complete and total confidentiality.
My name is Mr. Yemi Sado an Accountant by profession and a director with the National Petroleum Investment Management Services (NAPIMS). I am presently the chairman of the Contract Awards/Review and Payment Approvals committee of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.We are looking for a very reliable person to handle a very confidential business transaction for us, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account. My colleagues and I are members of the Federal Government Contract Awards/Review and Payment Approvals Committee of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation. Our duties include Evaluation, Vetting, and Approval for payment of Contract/Jobs done for the N.N.P.C. The source of this funds is as follows:
There were series of contract executed by a Consortium of ABB Lumuns, J.G.C Corporation of Japan, Bouygues Offshore and a Joint Venture of Spiebatignoles and Dresser Gmbh of Germany in favour of the P.T.F. Among which where:
1)The Expansion and maintainance of pipelines network from one main station to Escravous Deport for crude oil and downstream products. Distribution and subsequent evacution.
2)Contract for Turn Around Maintainance (T.A.M.) of the various refinaries in the country.
3)The Expansion and Construction of new storage tanks for petroleum products.
The original value of the contract was delibrately over-invoiced from US$400 million to US$435.5 million.The Federal Government of Nigeria has since last year approved the sum of US$435.5 million for the payment of the above mentioned contracts. And the sum of US$400 million has also been paid to the foreign companies concerned as contract entitlements for the various jobs done, but since the companies are entitled to US$400 million dollars only, we are now left with US$35.5 million dollars. In the light of the above, I ask for your assistance in the transfer of this excess floating fund in a suspense account into a foreign account you may wish to provide. But by virtue of our positions as civil servants and members of this panel, we cannot do this by ourselves, as we are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/or operating foreign accounts, making it impossible for us to acquire the money in our names right now. I have therefore been delegated as a matter of trust and urgency by my colleagues in the panel to look for a foreign partner into whose account we would transfer the sum of US$35.5 million.
My Colleagues and I have agreed that if you or your company can act as the beneficiary of these funds on our behalf, you or your Company will retain 30% of the total amount (US$35.5 million), while 60% will be for us (my colleagues and I) and the remaining 10% will be used in offsetting all debts/expenses and taxes incurred in transfering the money to you. Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous, in return we demand your complete honesty and trust.
Please note that this transaction will be strictly based on the following terms and conditions as stated below;
a) Our conviction of your transparent honesty and loyalty
b) That you will treat this transaction with utmost secrecy and confidentiality
c) That you will not sit on the funds once it is under your custody, or any form of blackmail.
d) That upon receipt of the funds you will release the funds as instructed by us after you have removed your share of 30% from the total amount.
Please, note that this transaction is 100% safe, legal and risk free and we hope to conclude this transaction within fourteen bank working days from the date of receipt of the necessary requirements from you.
Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter by sending a mail to my personal email box: firstname.lastname@example.org , or send a fax to my American based internet fax: 1-615-676-4381 or call me directly on my private phone; +234-1-776-7324. I will bring you into the complete picture of this transaction when I hear from you. Please also include your telephone and fax numbers to enable me fax to you all necessary information you need to know about the transaction. Details of this transaction will be made available to you in the course of your correspondence.
Your confidentiality is highly required since I am still in active service.
