Lagos - Nigeria
For The Attention of: OWNER / CHIEF EXECUTIVE


This is important, and requires your immediate attention! First, I must solicit 
your strictest confidence as you read this letter. Though this might come to 

you as a surprise since we have not met or spoken with each other before. I 
plead for your understanding and tender my humble apologies if I had taken you 

My name is CHUMA  WILSON, a member of the committee set up by the Federal Government 
of Nigeria to supervise the activities of the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF), the 
agency that manages proceeds from the sale of crude oil in my country. At the 
inception of the new democratic government in my country, the Petroleum Trust 
Fund was ordered to wind up its operation to enable the new committee take over. 
The former Chairman of the agency in the person of Major General Muhammed Buhari 
(Rtd.) was also retired.

In its place a new committee in which I am a member was appointed to take over 
and oversee the activities of the agency. The duty of the committee amongst 
others includes verifying all outstanding contract claims and debts with the 

sole objective of settling such long overdue claims. I therefore decided to 
contact you directly having gotten your name and company's information from a 
business handbook of your country I discovered in the former chairman's official 
study, which he left behind in his office.

Going through some of the files left behind by the former chairman, we 
discovered that he has secured out of the Central Bank of Nigeria a forex 
release to the tune of US$25,500,000.00 for the payment of goods and services 
supplied by foreign contractors for the execution of KUBWA WATER PROJECT in the 
oil rich Niger Delta. He was caught in the web of trying to transfer the funds 
to a ghost company abroad when he was removed from office. In confidence, we 

know that the goods and services were not supplied but used his office to 
approve the payment in favour of a foreign firm with no fixed address. He 
confided in me as a member of the new committee that he used his position to 

over invoice the contract. After his removal from office, this over invoiced 

amount is floating in the system and left unclaimed. He has therefore requested 
me to help look for a foreign company into whose account the funds will be 

I am now soliciting for your cooperation to enable us process the transfer of 
the funds to your account. You should provide us your company's name or any 
other name as long as you will be able to receive the amount. It will be treated 
as one of the outstanding payments due to you on executed contract. We will take 
measure to duly register your company here in Nigeria
to give it legitimacy. We need your company's name and account particulars to 
enable us file application for foreign exchange allocation order at the Federal 
Ministry of Finance. The moment we accomplish this, we will raise Contract Award 
Certificate in your company's name to show that a contract was actually awarded 
and executed by you. The nature of your business not withstanding.

For your participation and investing in this project, we are prepared to concede 
25% of the total sum to you. On completion of the project, we will commit a 
substantial percentage of our share into investments in your country and we will 
direct you on how to repatriate the balance of our share.

This arrangement is known only the chairman, you and myself. Therefore, 
confidentiality should be our watchword. If the above proposal meets your 
approval, please respond immediately. Endeavour to furnish me with your 
secured private telephone and fax line for easy reach.
