REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE- STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL
I am Alhaji Mohammed Hemed, Group Managing Director Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation and also and accountant with Federal Ministry of petroleum Resources (FMPR) and a member of a three-man Tender Board in charge of contract review and payment approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable person to handle a very confidential transaction that involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account. It may sound strange but exercise patience and read on. There were series of contracts executed by a consortium Multinational in the Oil industry in favour of Ministry of Petroleum Resources among which was:
1. The extension of pipeline network within Nigeria for crude oil, Down stream products distribution and subsequent evacuation- US$ 195 Million.
2. Contract for the Turn around Maintenance (TAM) of the various refineries in the country~ US$ 152Million.
3. The construction of the Kaduna Refinery, some contractors where paid their contract sum while some has not been paid by the Nigerian Government. Few days ago, the president of the federal republic of Nigeria called to the Aso-Rock Villa Abuja, where we head meeting concerning contractors that has not been paid their contract payments, after the meeting, he then asked me to be in charge by preparing the name of the contractor that needed to be paid their contract payments and then submit it to him for approval.
Why am writing you this mail, is for us to do this deal, because I will be approving the sum of USD$9.5Million in your name and I want you to act as one of the contractors owned by the Nigerian Government, I will include your name in the file I will submit to the presidency for approval and I am prepared to give you 30% of the total sum after this money is been transferred to your bank account.
Sir/Madam, if you are willing to do this deal with me, kindly contact me via the telephone numbers or email address above or via this alternative email address ([email protected]) then I will now tell you the next step that we are going to follow and what you need to send to me for me to start processing all the paper works to back up the claim of this USD$9.5M. Please don’t fail to include your private contacts details. Please destroy this letter, if you are not willing to do this deal with me. I will be investing my own share of the money through your guide lines in your country or if you have a company, I prefer to go into partnership with you. So please treat this deal with utmost confidentiality if you are willing to do this deal with me, and after all documentations, it will take just 7 banking working days to conclude everything.
