Subject: URGENTLY AND EXTREMELY CONFIDENTIAL
From Engr. Daniel Peters
Chairman NNPC Contract Award Committee
Nigerian National Petroleum Corp
Falomo - Victoria Island Lagos
URGENTLY AND EXTREMELY CONFIDENTIAL
By introduction, I am Engr. Daniel Peters and the Chairman of the
Tender Board Committee
which awards contract in the Department of Petroleum Resources of
Nigeria. I sent you email sometime ago informing you of our plan to
transfer the sum of
USD$8.6Million (Eight Million, Six Hundred Thousand US Dollars only)
to your account,
and have been waiting to hear from you ever since, but to no avail you
particular message by way of reminder.
I want you to know that these funds originated from an Over-invoiced
contract sum which
was awarded to a foreign firm in 2004. I and my other colleagues in
the Tender Board
purposely inflated the actual cost of the contract with the extra
value of US$8.6
Million. However, the original contractor has fully executed the
contract, the project
commissioned and the contractor paid his actual contract worth,
leaving behind the over-
invoiced sum which is US$8.6 Million. So, it is based on this that we
now want you/your
company to come forward to stand in and claim this sum on our behalf.
We are Civil Servants and by law, we are not allowed to operate
foreign bank account
while still in office, so you are to act as the one who had executed
the contract worth
the sum of USD$8.6 Million for my Department and you now want your
Remarkably, this deal is 100% risk free. We are perfectly in charge
and had worked out
modalities that would guarantee a hitch free transfer of this fund to
your account fully
free of any illegal act or encumbrances and are clean, clear and
non-criminal origin. I
will guide you on how to go about it and we shall claim the fund
without any difficulty.
If you are interested in the proposal, and you are a trustworthy
person who would not
sit on this money if it is transferred into your account, kindly
indicate by contacting
me through my E-mail and you can as well send your bank account details for this
transfer. Please note that this deal must be kept absolutely
confidential till we have
concluded it. We have also mapped out 35% of the total sum for you for
your help and
assistance while the remaining is for me and my colleagues.
NOTE again that upon completion of this transaction, whereas 35% is
mapped out as your
compensation for your involvement, We shall visit you immediately to
collect and invest
our shares in your country. Therefore, you will equally assist us to
identify and advise
us on any viable business which will have a good return on investment
in your country.
Please send your response through my private email address: (
for my urgent attention.
Thank you as I look forward to your anticipated co-operation.
Engr. Daniel Peters
