MR. MR.MUSA AMEAD
CHAIRMAN CONTRACT AWARD COMMITTEE
NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION(NNPC)
LAGOS - NIGERIA
REQUEST FOR URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP IN
RESPECT OF THE TRANSFER OF US$20,000,000.00 (TWENTY MILLION
UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY)
I, on behalf of my other colleagues from different Federal
Government of Nigeria owned parastatals decided to solicit
your assistance as regards the transfer of the above stated
amount into your bank account. This fund arose from the
over-invoicing of various contracts awarded in my
parastatal to certain foreign contractors sometime ago.
We as holders of official positions in our various
parastatals, were mandated by this new civilian government
to scrutinize all payments made to certain foreign
contractors by the past military government, and we
discovered that some of the contracts they executed were
grossly over-invoiced, either by omission or commission.
Also, we discovered that the sum of $25,000,000.00 (Twenty
Five million American Dollars only) was lying in a suspense
account, although the foreign contractors were fully paid
theirentitlements after executing the said contracts.
We all agreed that the over-invoiced amount be transferred
(for our own use) into a bank account provided by a foreign
partner, as the code of conduct of the Federal civil
service does not allow us to operate foreign accounts.
However, we have succeeded in transferring some of these
monies, precisely US$5M (five million American Dollars
only) into a foreign account in GENEVA (SWITZERLAND) last
week, but unfortunately the provider of the account has
severed all forms of contacts with us as he has refused to
adhere to our earlier mutual agreement insisting that the
total amount be paid into his nominated bank account before
disbursement will take effect.
If for US$5.Million (Five million only) we are not
ompensated, how can one guarantee full compensation on
remittance of the balance of US$20 million (Forty million
American dollars only).We are therefore seeking your
assistance based on the balance amount of US$20 Million
which can be speedily processed and fully remitted into
your nominated bank account. On successful remittance of
the fund into your account, you will be compensated with
30% of the amount for assistance and services and 70% is
for me and my colleagues.
This transaction is closely knitted and in view of our
SENSITIVE POSITION we cannot afford a slip, I assure you
that this transaction is 100% risk free. We will avail you
with our identities as regards our respective offices when
relationship is fully established and smooth operation
I am at your disposition to entertain any question(s) from
you in respect of this transaction, so, ontactme
immediately through my e-mail or the above telephone
numbers for further information on the requirements and
Please, note that this DEAL needs utmost confidentiality.
is this a scam/spam (lol)?
