I got your reference from your country's internet trade
directory. I hope you would know the essence of my contact with you. I
sincerely promise that the deal is 100% risk-free to both sides, hence our top
powers to execute it.
My names are, Engr. Michael Mash, Head of the
above department of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation. My term of
reference involves the award of contracts to multinational companies. My
office is saddled with the responsibility of contract award, screening,
categorization and prioritization of projects embarked upon by Department of
Petroleum Resources (DPR) as well as feasibility studies for selected projects
and supervising the project consultants involved.
A breakdown of the
fiscal expenditure by this office as at the end of last fiscal quarter of 2005
indicates that DPR paid out a whooping sum of US$2B (Two Billion United States
Dollars) to successful local and foreign contractors. The DPR is now
compelling beneficiaries to be paid for this first Quarter of the year 2007.

This money is currently in a suspense account of the DPR account
with the Debt Reconciliation Committee (DRC). We now seek to process the
transfer of this fund officially as contract payment to you as a foreign
contractor, who will be fronting for us as the beneficiary of the fund. In
this way we can facilitate these funds into your nominated foreign account for

policy to operate any foreign account to transfer this fund
However, for your involvement in assisting us with this transfer
