It is with my profound dignity that I write you this
very important and
highly confidential letter. First, I must solicit your
confidentiality in this transaction. This is by
virtue of its nature
as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL and "TOP SECRET". Though
I know that a
transaction of this magnitude will make any one
apprehensive and
worried,considering the fact that we have not met each
other before,but I am
assuring you that all will be well at the end of the
day. We have decided
to contact you by email due to the urgency of this
transaction,as we
have been reliably informed that it will take at least
a minimum of two
to three weeks for a normal post to reach you, so we
decided it is best
using the e-mail,which is quicker and also to enable
us meet up with
this payment quarter for the year 2002 which has
already begun.

However, let me start by introducing myself properly
to you. I am
Engr. James A.Nwaka, a Director General in the
Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC) and I presently head a seven man
tenders board in charge
of Contract Awards and Payment Approvals. I came to
know of you in my
search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a
very confidential
business transaction which involves the transfer of a
huge sum of money
to a foreign account requiring maximum CONFIDENCE. I
and my colleagues
are Top Officials of the Federal Government Contract
Review and Award
Panel. Our duties include Evaluation, Vetting,
Approval for payment of
Contract jobs done for the N.N.P.C e.t.c. In order to
commence this
business we solicit for your assistance to enable us
transfer into your
Account the said funds.

The source of this funds is as follows: In the first
quarter of 2001
this committee was mandated to review and award
contracts to the tune of
US$400 million US dollars to a group of five firms for
the supply
, construction and installation of Oil Pipe lines in
Warri and Port
Harcourt. During this process my colleagues and I
decided and agreed among
ourselves to deliberately over-inflate the total
contract sum from
US$400 million to US$428 million United States dollars
with the main
intention of sharing the remaining sum of US$28
miilion amongst ourselves.

The Federal Government of Nigeria has since last year
approved the sum
of US$428 million for us as the contract sum, and the
sum of US$400
million has also been paid to the foreign companies
concerned as contract
entitlements for the various contracts done, but since
the companies
are entiltled to US$400 million dollars only, we are
now left with US$28
million dollars balance in the account which we intend
to disburse
amongst ourselves, 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 in our names while
still in Government
service, 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 an
overseas partner
into whose account we would transfer the sum of US$28
million. Hence!
we are writing you this letter.

My Colleagues and I have agreed that if you or your
company can act as
the beneficiary of this funds on our behalf, you or
your Company will
retain 20% of the total amount (US$28 million), while
60% will be for
us (OFFICIALS) and the remaining 20% will be used in
offsetting all
debts/expenses and Taxes incurred both local and
foreign in the cause of
this transfer. Needless to say, the trust reposed on
you at this juncture
is enormous. In return we demand your complete honesty
and trust. You
must however NOTE that this transaction will be
strictly based on the
following terms and conditions as we have stated

a) Our conviction of your transparent honesty and
b) That you would treat this transaction with utmost
secrecy and
c) That you will not ask for more share or try to sit
on the funds once
it is under your custody, or any form of blackmail.
c) That upon receipt of the funds you will release the
funds as
instructed by us after you have removed your share of
20% from the total

Please, note that this transaction is 100% legal and
risk free and we
hope to conclude this transaction seven bank working
days from the date
of receipt of the necessary requirements from you . We
are looking
forward to doing business with you and solicit your
Total Confidentiality
in this transaction. There is no cause for alarm. I
give you my word
that you are completely safe in doing business with
us. Transactions like
this have been successfully carried out in the past by
most Government
executives. Here in my country there is great economic
and political
disarray and thus looting and corruption is rampant
and the order of the
day, thus explaining why you might have heard stories
of how money is
been taken out of Nigeria, this is because everyone is
making desperate
attempts to secure his or her future, so that when we
retire from
active service we donot languish in poverty. I will
explain more to you when
I have heard from you.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter using
the above e-mail
address. I will bring you into the complete picture of
this pending
business transaction when I have heard from you and
also receive your
confidential telephone and fax numbers to enable me
fax to you all
necessary information you need to know about our
pending business
transaction. I will also send to you my private
telephone and fax numbers where
you can always reach me.

Your urgent response will be highly appreciated to
enable us transfer
the funds under this quarter of the year 2002.

Thank you and God Bless.

Yours faithfully,

Engr. James A.Nwaka
