DEAR SIR/MADAM I am Dr.Martins Ego. Chairman of the Tender Committee of
the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). My Committee is principally

concerned with payment of all contract awarded from 1998 to date, in order
of
priority as regard capital projects of the NNPC. The information we gathered

from the Foreign Office of the Nigeria Chambers of Commerce and Industries
is
so positive as to convince us that you would provide us with solution to
a money
transfer deal valued at Thirty One Million United States Dollars and
subsequently

a joint business venture. In the course of our duties as values, and project

inspectors for the on-going liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project, we have
over-invoiced
the value of some jobs done by foreign contractors for the NNPC to the tune

of US$31M. As follows: – Computer optimization and Installation $16,000.000.00

Installation of 250,000.00 Monax Turbine$10,000.000.00 Turn Around Maintenance

$5,000,000.00 Our aim of over-invoicing this payment is to divert the excess

amount to a discrete account abroad. This fund is now floating in suspense
account
at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). This is the fund my colleagues and
I have
decided to transfer into your account since we, as civil servants are not
allowed
to operate or own foreign account. The money will be shared as follows after

transfer:30% for you (Account Owner) 60% for me and my colleagues10% to
off-set
both local and international expenses thatWould be incurred in the course
of
this transaction. To be able to claim the funds, we will be purporting your

company to be the original contractor / beneficiary of the funds so all
procedures
for international transfer shall be strictly followed, as we have worked
out
all modalities for a swift and riskfree transfer.
If this proposal satisfies you, please contact me Through martins_ego01@fsmail.net

or my direct fax line 234-1-7596575 with the following important information.

Bank Name / Address Account Name ,Account NumberTel/Fax Telex of Bank Personal

Phone / Fax Numbers for easy communication. This transaction will last for
14
working days from the time we submit the required information, as all
modalities

concerning this transaction have been worked out and it is completely risk
free.

Please be informed that this subject is classified sensitive.
Therefore treat the transaction with utmost confidentiality and urgency.
Yours
Faithfully.
Dr.Martins Ego.
