Dear Sir,

I am making this contact with you on behalf of my
colleagues and I after the satisfactory information we
gathered from the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce and
Industry.

We are members of the Presidential Contract Review
Panel on foreign debt. We are contacting you as a
trustworthy individual, into whose account we intend
to transfer some funds.

Presently, we have in our possession, instrument of
payment for US$10M(Ten Million U.S. Dollars), This
amount arose from over-invoicing of some supplies and
engineering works contracts which had been financedby
the Petroleum Trust Fund. The Contractors have been
paid in full for contracts executed. The fund are
therefore free to be transferred overseas without any
risk whatsoever.

Due to the nature of accrual of these funds, it has to
be applied for by a foreign individual or
organisation, and payment can only be made into a
foreign account: Hence this contacts is necessaryto
accomplish this deal. We are willing to compensate you
with 20% of the amount for providing the account and
all other relevant assistance to enable us accomplish
this, 5% will be used for the reimbursement of all
expenses that will be incurred by both parties during
the course of this financial transaction; the
remaining 75% is for my associates and I.

We shall require from you the following urgently, by
fax or email:
1.Your name, contact address,telephone and fax
numbers.
2.The name and full address of your organization or
company.

My colleagues and I have had fruitful discussions with
relevant top officials of both the Federal Ministry of
Finance (FMF) and the Debt Reconciliation
Committe(DRC) and they have agreed to co-operate in
the transfer. An application for funds transfer will
be made at the appropriate ministries in favour of
you, the beneficiary.Thereafter you will be officially
regarded as having executed the contract for the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation for which
payments is being made.This process makes the
operation legal according to the laws of the federal
Republic of Nigeria.

Please, treat this transaction as strictly
confidential, we are civil servants who would not want
our names tarnished, bearing in mind our positions.
Because of cross interference of telephone calls in
Nigeria do ask my security code pciii before speaking
to the person that pick up your call and do not go
through the international telephone operatorof (AT&T)
when lines are busy at any time in the course of this
transaction.

Always dial direct. it is difficult to get telephone
access to Nigeria. So you must persist when the
telephone says subscriber not available or the number
does not exist; these responses are always given when
there is no access. thanks for your anticipated
co-operation, while I await your timely response.

Yours faithfully,
(Identity not mentioned publicly)
