Subject: NEED YOUR URGENT CO-OPERATION.
I am MD. Kwesi Eyiah the Chief Accountant of the Ghana National
Petroleum Corporation(GNPC)and I head a five man tender board in
charge of contract award and payment approval. I came to know of you
in my search for a reliable person to handle a very confidential
transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a
There were series of contracts executed by a contortion of
multinationals in the oil industry in favor of Ghana National
Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) among which were for the following:
1. The expansion of the pipelines network within for a crude down
stream products distribution and subsequent evacuation which
cost(Eight Billion(USD$8B.)United States Dollars).
2. Contract for the turn around maintenance (TAM) of the various
refineries in the country $115 million United States Dollars. The
construction of storage tanks for petroleum products (depots) $190
Million United States Dollars.
The original value of these contracts were deliberately over invoiced
in the sum US$69(Sixty-nine Million United States Dollars) only which
has now been approved and ready to be transferred to a Foreign
account, but the fact being that the companies that actually executed
these contracts had been fully paid when the projects were officially
commissioned that is why we are stocked at this point.
It does not matter whether your Company's did the contract or not, the
assumption is that your Company won the major contract and
sub-contracted it out to other Companies. Consequently, my colleagues
and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account for
subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by
the Code of Conduct Bureau(civil service laws)from owing or operating
foreign accounts in our names. Needless to say, the trust imposed on
you at this junction is enormous.
In return, we have agreed to offer you 50% of the total sum after a
successful transfer of the fund to your account, while 5% shall be set
aside for incidental expenses (internal and external)between the
parties in the course of the transaction, and the remaining 50% is for
us, the Ghanaian officials.
Modalities have been worked out at the highest level of the Ministry
of Finance and the Central Bank of Ghana for the immediate transfer of
the fund within 14 working days subject to your satisfaction of the
above stated terms.
Our assurance is that your role is Risk-free both now and in future, I
accord this transaction the legality it deserves and for mutual
security of the fund, the whole approval procedures will be officially
and legally processed with the name of any company you may nominate as
the bonafide beneficiary of the above mentioned amount.
Therefore, when the business is successfully concluded we shall
through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the
concerned government ministries for 100% security risk free to avoid
any traces after the transaction.
Once more, I want you to understand that having put in over 19years in
the civil service of my Country, I am very careful to have my image
and career deemed.
Please contact me immediately through E-mail whether you are
interested in this deal or not, if you are not, it will enable us
scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal but whereby
you are interested send us your reply immediately indicating your
interest assist us.
Send by Email for security reasons.
Thanks as I await in anticipation for your fullest co-operation.
MD Kwesi Eyiah.
