REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE - STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL
I am Mr Edwin odudu an Accountant in the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC) and I head a seven-man tenders committee in charge of
Foreign/Expatriate Contract Awards Review and Payment Approvals (CRPAC).
I came to know of your name and address in my search for a reliable and
low-key person to handle a very confidential transaction based on
unflinching trust as we have not met before. This transaction involves the
transfer of huge sum of foreign exchange (the United States Dollars) to a
foreign account. There were a series of contracts executed by a Consortium
of Multinationals in the oil industry in favour of NNPC among which are:
(1) The expansion and rehabilitation of the ageing pipeline network within
Nigeria for crude oil and downstream products distribution and evacuation -
(2) Contracts for the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of the four epileptic
refineries in the country;
(3) The construction of more storage tanks and
maintenance and servicing of old ones for Petroleum Products Storage
(Depots) - US$90 Million;
(4) The construction of Escravos Gas Poduction
The original value of these contracts was deliberately over-invoiced in the
sum of USD Twenty Eight Million, Two Hundred Thousand($28,200,000.00) by
this committee (CRPAC) during the awards of the various contract. This sum
($28,200,000.00) has now been approved for payment by this committee
(CRPAC)and is now ready to be transfered by the Central Bank of Nigeria to
the account of any individual and or company which the CRPAC presents as the
beneficiary, since the company that actually executed these contracts has
been fully paid their fund and the projects have been
officialy commissioned. Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to
transfe r the total amount to your account for subsequent disbursement on
our behalf, since we as civil servants and we are also serving in a
sensitive foreign payment approval committee (CRPAC) are prohibited by the
Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening or operating
foreign account and or dealing in foreign exchange in our names. Needless to
say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we
have agreed to offer you 25% of the transferred sum, while 10% shall be set
aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) accrued between the
parties in the course of the transaction.
You must however note that this transaction is subject to the following
terms and conditions:
a) Our conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence;
b) That you would treat this transaction with utmost secrecy and
c) That you have an unflincing trust in us, and our ability to complete all
official processes with your co-operation;
(d) That the funds would be transfered to an ordinary account which you have
total control over.
Modalities have been worked out (secretly) at the highest levels of the
relevant government departments involved and the Central Bank of Nigeria for
the immediate transfer of funds within 14 working days subject to your
satisfaction of the above stated terms. Our assurance is that your role is
risk-free. To accord this transaction the legality it
deserves and for mutual security of the fund, the whole approvalprocedures
will be officially and legally processed with your name or
the name of any company you may nominate as the bonafide beneficiary, as in
an ideal situation.It is imperative that you bear in mind that having put in
19 years in the service of the government, I am averse to having my image
and career dented. This matter should therefore be treated with utmost
secrecy and urgency.
Kindly expedite action by contacting me on my e-mail address, indicating
your interest in this transaction. For swift response to your reply,kindly
indicate your fax and telephone numbers clearly so that I can explain
further, especially by fax. I am urgently waiting your reply as payment to
foreign contractors is usually made on quarterly basis.
Mr Edwin odudu.
