Naturally this letter will come to you as a big
surprise since we have not met. Permit me however to
inform you that I am a member of the Debt
Reconciliation and Payment Bureau with the Directorate
of Petroleum Resources. Prior to 1999 when a
democratic government was established in Nigeria, so
many contracts were awarded to foreign contractors.
However these contracts though duly executed and
commissioned were not settled and this resulted in the
withdrawal of the Federal Government Foreign Technical
Partners (TP) in the Petroleum Industry and the
eventual collapse of the four-(4) refineries in the
country. As a matter of fact, one of such contracts was
over-invoiced to the tune of Twenty- One Million, Six
Hundred Thousand Dollars ($21,600,000.00). Thepresent
executive president of the Federal Republic ofNigeria
and members of his cabinet as part of effortsto woo
technical partners and resuscitate the ailing
Petroleum Industry have therefore directed that all
outstanding payment due to foreign contractors be paid
to them. Fortunately for us, the over-invoiced sum of
US$21.6m has been listed as one of such payment by the
DPR. However, as civil servants, we are not permitted
by law to operate foreign accounts, this is why we are
asking for your assistance to provide us with an
account (Personal/Corporate) into which the money can
be transferred.
You shall be adequately compensated. 15% of the money
shall be yours while my colleagues and I shall have
80%. The remaining 5% are set aside to cover any
expenses that might be incurred in the course of this
transaction by both parties. For a smooth transfer, you
are kindly requested to send the following by fax or
e-mail preferably.
1. Your contact addresses, fax and telephone numbers.
2. Complete particulars of the Bank Account
(Personal/Corporate) where you want the money to be
transferred. i.e, Name and Address of Bank, Account
Number and Name of Beneficiary. When we receive this
information from you, we shall apply and obtain the
necessary payment approvals from the relevant
authorities. You shall be officially regarded as the
bona-fide owner of the fund. When the money is
transferred into your account, we shall visit your
place for sharing and discussion relating to business
investments. For further information, contact me on the
e-mail or fax number above. The confidence and trust
reposed in you cannot be over emphasized. Therefore,
you are required to keep this deal to yourself and
confidential. We wait in anticipation of your fullest
