This letter may come to you as a surprise since it is coming from someone you have not met before. I got your contact from the world trade bureau with further confirmation from a reliable source.
However, I decided to contact you based on a satisfactory information I had about your business person as regards this business information concerning your country and safety of our funds in a steady economy such as that of your country compared to our country Nigeria.
I am Sen. Paulker Izibefien Emmanuel the Chairman Senate Committee Contract Award on Petroleum and Gas Federal Republic of Nigeria. My close and trusted colleagues and I need your assistance in the transfer of USD132 million, (ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-TWO MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) into any of your account you may nominate overseas.
This fund was generated from over-invoicing of contracts executed in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)for turn around Maintenance of the Port Harcourt refinery under my control and supervision. This fund is now ready to be remitted into any account I put forward for that purpose.
I was therefore mandated in trust by members of the committee, to seek for a foreign partner into whose account this first part payment of the sum of USD32,000,000,would be transferred hence I am writing you this letter. We have agreed to share the funds thus:
1) 70% for us (the committee members)
2) 20% for you (the account owner)
3) 10% will be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses that will be incurred in the course of this transaction.But where the share percentage rate is not acceptable by you we wait for your own suggestion.
The payment will be done by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). What we need from you, is that you provide a vital account into which the funds will be transferred/lodged into.
We wish to assure you that your involvement should you decide to assist us, will be well protected. This business is 100% risk free as we have secured our own side of the transaction. We have also put in place the machinery to guarantee a successful conclusion of this transaction.
Thanking you in anticipation of your co-operation, as we look forward for a mutually benefiting business relationship with you.
Please when replying, kindly include your private Telephone, Fax numbers and Address, where I can reach you any time of the day.
Thanks and Best regards,
Sen. Paulker Izibefien Emmanuel
Chairman Senate Committee
Contract Award on Petroleum and Gas.
