May I crave your indulgence to open this business discussion by a
formal letter of this sort. It is pertinent that a business of this
magnitude should have commenced properly with a formal meeting of you and us
to enable us know ourselves, have a fore knowledge of the nature of the
business, discuss and acquaint ourselves with the responsibilities
and functions of parties concerned, and appropriate shares accordingly.
However, for time factor, confidentiality and personality of people
involved here in Nigeria, we choose this pproach for the remittance of
this (US$25m). Please bear with us for making the initial contact through
e-mail. But my partners are insisting for a meeting in order
not to fall into a wrong hand again.
I am MR SANI SULEMAN,we are members of the special committee for
Budget and Planning of the Ministry Petroleum. This committee is principally
concerned with contract appraisal and the approval of the contracts in
order of priorities as regards capital projects of the
past military government of Nigeria.
With our positions, we have successfully secured for ourselves this
sum of (US$25m). This amount was accumulated through undeclared windfall
sales of crude oil during the gulf war.
Hence together with two of our top officials at the Nigeria
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), we plan to transfer this amount
of money into a secure overseas account by awarding a sort of
contractfrom the NNPC.
To this effect I have been given the mandate by mycolleagues to contact
you and ask for your assistance. What we need from you is to provide
a nice account in which the funds will be transferred. My colleagues
and I have agreed to compensate you or the owner of the account used
for this transaction with 30% of the total amount remitted. We shall have
70% Kindly, treat as very important and strictly confidential, I
honestly assure you that this transaction is
100% risk-free. I look forward to your response and expected
and God bless you.
