DR. AYODELE SEGUN
NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION
OPERATIONAL HEADQUARTERS
LAGOS-NIGERIA.

ATTN: THE PRESIDENT/C.E.O.

Dear sir/madam,

BUSINESS PROPOSAL: TRANSFER OF US$24.6M (TWENTY-FOUR MILLION, SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) & BUSINESS INVESTMENTS PARTNERSHIP.

First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret as you were introduced to us in confidence through the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce, foreign trade division.

We are top officials from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation {N.N.P.C.} Federal Ministry of Finance and the Presidency, making up the Contract Review Panel (CRP) set up by the Federal Government of Nigeria to review contracts awarded by the past military administration.

In the course of our work on the CRP, we discovered this fund which resulted from grossly over-invoiced contracts which were executed for the N.N.P.C. during the last administration.

The companies that executed the contracts have been duly paid and the contracts commissioned leaving the sum of US$24.6 Million floating in the escrow account of the Central Bank of Nigeria ready for payment.

I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues in the panel to look for an overseas partner to whom we could transfer the sum of US$24.6M legally subcontracting the entitlement to your company.

This is bearing in mind that our civil service code of conduct forbids us from owning foreign company or running foreign account while in government service hence the need for an overseas partner.

We have agreed that the funds will be shared thus after it has been paid into your account:

(1) 30% of the money will go to you for acting as the beneficiary of the fund.
(2) 10% has been set aside as an abstract projection for reimbursement to both parties for incidental expenses that may be incurred in the course of the transaction.
(3) 60% to us the government officials (with which we wish to commence an importation business in conjunction with you ).

All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for the smooth conclusion of the transaction within ten to fourteen days of commencement after receipt of the following information: Your company name, address, company's details &activities, telephone & fax numbers.

These information will enable us make the applications and lodge claims to the concerned ministries & agencies in favour of your company and it is pertinent to state here that this transaction is entirely based on trust as the sole bank draft or certified cheque drawable in any of the Central Bank of Nigeria correspondent bankers around the world is going to be made in your name.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter using my email address.

Yours faithfully.

Ayodele Segun

I AM DR. ONORIODE BOBOLO THE CHAIRMAN OF CONTRACT AWARD AND REVIEW COMMITTEE SET UP BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA UNDER THE NEW CIVILIAN DISPENSATION TO AWARD NEW CONTRACTS AND REVIEW EXISTING ONES.

I CAME TO KNOW OF YOU IN MY SEARCH FOR A RELIABLE AND REPUTABLE PERSON TO HANDLE A VERY CONFIDENTIAL TRANSACTION, WHICH INVOLVES THE TRANSFER OF A HUGE SUM OF MONEY TO A FOREIGN ACCOUNTS.

THERE WERE SERIES OF CONTRACTS EXECUTED BY A CONSORTIUM OF MULTINATIONALS IN THE OIL INDUSTRY IN FAVOUR OF N.N.P.C. THE ORIGINAL VALUE OF THESE CONTACTS WERE DELIBERATELY OVER-INVOICED TO THE SUM OF USD$25,000.000.00 (TWENTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS). THIS AMOUNT HAS NOW BEEN APPROVED AND IS NOW READY TO BE TRANSFERRED BEING THAT THE COMPANIES THAT ACTUALLY EXECUTED THESE CONTRACTS HAVE BEEN FULLY PAID AND THE PROJECTS OFFICIALLY COMMISSIONED.

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 LAW) FROM OPERATING AND/OR OPENING FOREIGN ACCOUNTS IN OUR NAMES.

NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE TRUST REPOSED ON YOU AT THIS JUNCTURE IS ENORMOUS, IN RETURN, WE HAVE AGREED TO OFFER YOU 30% OF THE TRANSFERRED SUM, WHILE 10% SHALL BE SET ASIDE FOR INCIDENTAL EXPENSES (INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL) BETWEEN BOTH PARTIES IN THE COURSE OF THE TRANSACTION YOU WILL BE MANDATED TO REMIT THE BALANCE TO OTHER ACCOUNTS IN DUE COURSE.

MODALITIES HAVE BEEN WORKED OUT AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE AND THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA FOR THE IMMEDIATE TRANSFER OF THE FUNDS WITHIN 14 WORKING DAYS SUBJECT TO YOUR SATISFACTION OF THE ABOVE STATED TERMS.

OUR ASSURANCE IS THAT YOUR ROLE IS RISK FREE. TO ACCORD THIS TRANSACTION THE LEGALITY IT DESERVES AND FOR MUTUAL SECURITY OF THE FUNDS THE WHOLE APPROVAL PROCEDURES WILL OFFICIALLY AND LEGALLY PROCESSED WITH YOUR NAME OR THE NAME OF ANY COMPANY YOU MAY NOMINATE AS THE BONAFIDE BENEFICIARY.

ONCE MORE I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT HAVING PUT IN OVER TWENTY FIVE YEARS IN THE CIVIL SERVICE OF MY COUNTRY, I AM AVERSE TO HAVING MY IMAGE AND CAREER DENTED. THIS MATTER SHOULD THEREFORE BE TREATED WITH UTMOST SECRECY AND URGENCY IT DESERVES.

PLEASE YOU SHOULD SIGNIFY YOUR INTENTION TO ASSIST BY SENDING ME A FAX ON MY CONFIDENTIAL FAX NUMBER ( 234-1-7597626 ) SO THAT I CAN BRIEF YOU FURTHER. I WANT TO ASSURE YOU THAT THIS BUSINESS PROPOSAL IS 100% RISK FREE AS WE HAVE DONE OUR HOME WORK PROPERLY.

I QUITE BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL PROTECT OUR INTEREST BY TAKING THIS DEAL STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL, AS WE ARE STILL IN GOVERNMENT SERVICE, WHICH I INTEND TO RETIRE FROM. KINDLY EXPEDITE ACTION AS WE ARE BEHIND SCHEDULE TO ENABLE US INCLUDE THIS TRANSFER IN THE FIRST BATCH WHICH WOULD CONSTITUTE THE THIRD QUARTER PAYMENTS FOR THE 2001 FINANCIAL YEAR.

REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE

l am Dr. Abdul Kamal, the Co-ordinator of the contract Review Panel of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Sometime ago, a Contract was awarded to a Conglomerate of Foreign Companies by my Committee on behalf of the NNPC.

The Contract was over invoiced to the tune of US$24.5Million (Twenty four million united states Dollars). This was done deliberately by my colleagues and l to benefit from this project.

This funds are presently lying in the NNPC accounts having observed all laid down protocols.

This surplus US$24.5Million is what we ask that you help us receive on arrival as well as provide an account for lodgement of the funds since it is forbidden for us government workers to operate foreign bank accounts.

On final conclusion of this project, 70% of this surplus shall be for us, while 25% shall be for you and the remaining 5% shall be used to compensate either party should there be any expenses incurred.

You should be informed that all arrangements have been secretly concluded to lift this money as a consignment along with a Diplomatic Cargo Vessel. Inquiries have showed that this consignment can be routed to Europe, America or Asia.

This piece of information should however be kept to yourself alone as we are still very much in government service.

Send me an email or fax immediately to let me know if you would be of assistance.

Regards,

Dr. Abdul Kamal.

At this point, you are expected to come personally to Lagos to endorse the final fund release documents, witness the telegraphic transfer of the funds to your account and reconfirm your account particulars or collect your solar bank draft/certified cheque, as the case may be.

... you have a choice to retain the services of a local Attorney accredited by the FMF to perform the endorsement on your behalf... Also in privileged circumstances, your fund release documents can be endorsed in any of the Debt Reconciliation Committee (DRC) offices in Europe, America, Asia.

For any option chosen, 48-72 hours after endorsement the funds will hit your account by swift telegraphic transfer, or you can receive a solar bank draft drawable in any Federal Government of Nigeria correspondent bank worldwide, or make application for cash payment in Lagos or any of the DRC offices...

You must be informed not to be confused by the numerous propaganda, which my committee is pushing into your country for some time now.

All the propaganda is aimed at discouraging foreign nationals like you from assisting Nigerians in transferring of money out of the country.

... process of registering your company as a category ‘A’contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC),... registered you with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) as a legal entity here in Nigeria, and most importantly, begin the process of meeting the tax obligations on behalf of your company, and have consequently contacted a firm of chartered accountants for this purpose...

... forwarded your file to the Debt Reconciliation Committee (DRC)... hoping to get very soon is the Exchange Control Approval Order Number (E.C.A.O.. No.)... makes you, automatically, the Bonafide owner of the funds ...grant you a date for endorsement of the Final Fund Release Documents

... this DRC contact is very crucial to the success of this project... super sensitive committee... whenever contacted endeavor to let me know immediately...educate you on what and how to go about their contact... do not say anything to them until you have contacted me...

... cannot afford to take the chance of you being physically present for the endorsement exercise, as you may be made to lead an inspection tour to the contract site, hence our herculean effort to see that you are granted the privilege of being represented by a government accredited attorney...

... started negotiations for acquisition for an International Guarantee Bond Certificate (IGB), which we are informed must be used to back up the transfer of the funds, as proof that the funds are clean, and as insurance for the funds itself, and by this indemnity, the government will be liable for any mishaps that may occur in funds transit.

From reliable information reaching us, the issuing house is the National Insurance Corporation of Nigeria (NICON) and a mandatory 1% of the total contract sum must be paid for this bond for an insurance cover of 12 months. Being Civil servants who though are highly positioned, but grossly underpaid, we cannot afford this sum.

Therefore, we have started an ‘under-the-table-arrangement’ for a less than the official rate, which may come to about $65,000, for the acquisition of this Bond Certificate, for a 3 months cover. This is our problem and we intend to face it squarely.

As you may wish to know, the funds we are using as processing costs are short-term loans from mortgages, friends and relations, which must be paid back in 3 weeks from now.

... keep accurate records of your expenses... reimbursable from 10% ratio earmarked for this purpose.

Re: Payment of US$8,000,000.00 as Part Payment of your Contract Sum in Second Quarter Schedule of 2002.

Be informed that we are the committee that has been set aside to settle all outstanding old debts owed to our foreign contractors on genuine executed contracts with the ministries / parastatals in Nigeria.

Sequel to the slow and careless manners with which the past administrator and its officials have handled this issue of unpaid contract claims, we clearly found out that the local representative to our foreign contractors, in collaboration with some unscrupulous staffers of the Central Bank of Nigeria extort funds unlawfully from contractors and diverts payment to un-approved designated accounts.

Presently, we have an application for the change of your account to a German based account. Please advise on your awareness to this matter. Most of these unscrupulous staffers however, have been arrested and deprived of their various duties to face their penalties.

To check these fraudulent actions, we suspended the payment of contract fund via Swift / K.T.T and all our foreign Clearing Houses have been advised to stop further payment pending our final reconciliation. In consideration of the affected Foreign Contractors, the President of the Federation, Republic of Nigeria together with the National House of Assembly (Senate / House of Representatives) have unanimously decided that all the outstanding contract debts be paid in installments through our nominated CASH OFFICE or by CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL BANK DRAFT.

Based on the above and as a result of the insufficient fund in our vault, a CBN DRAFT of US$8 Million value has been paid in your favor from granted IMF World bank loan. In order to control safe delivery of the DRAFT, you are required to choose among the under listed delivery options.

A. Beneficiaries to fly down to this office or in Europe for a direct DRAFT collection upon personal identification.

B. By services of our dispatched officials for Door to Door delivery.

C. By Order of Telegraphic Transfer upon the full payment of the transfer cost.

Be warned that DRAFT should be cleared before the expiration of the value date. In view of the foregoing issues, you are advice to contact our Director / Head auditor, DR. WILLIAM DAVES via his direct self phone 234 80 33019594 or E-mail:william\\management.com for further clarification. Besides, you are advice to stop any further communication with your previous associates.

Best Regards,

Mrs.Grace Awolowo.
