Dr. Tanko Dantata.
REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE - STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL
I am Dr. Tanko Dantata, an Accountant in the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and I head a seven man tenders
board in charge of Contract Awards and Payment Approvals.
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 account.
There were series of contracts executed by a Consortium of
Multinationals in the oil industry in favour of NNPC among
(1)The expansion of the pipeline network within Nigeria for
crude oil and downstream products distribution and subsequent
evacuation - US$5 Billion (2)Contract for he Turn Around Maintenance
(TAM) of the various Refineries in the country. (3)The construction
of storage tanks for Petroleum Products (Depots) - US$90 Million.
The original value of these contracts were deliberately over-invoiced
in the sum of USD Thirty-six Million, Five Hundred and Sixty
One Thousand ($36,561,000.00) which has now been approved
and is now ready to be transferred being that the companies
that actually executed these contracts have fully been 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 laws) from opening and/or operating
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 25% of
the transferred sum, while 10% shall be set aside for incidental
expenses (internal and external) between the parties in the
course of the transaction.
Kindly send us the following information immediately as we
are behind schedule to enable us include this transfer in
the current batch within this quarter payment for the 2001
Any information you have to send to me should be sent via
my fax number, this is the only reliable way I can receive
a message from you smoothly, as our email server is not reliable
here and it would be luck for you to even receive this message,
if you have. Our email servers are not reliable at times it
stays for weeks without subscribers getting to their mail
boxes.Get back by fax on 234-1-7597613.
Send to me your confidential fax /tel number for me to send
to you more details
Contract me on Tel-Fax 234--17597613 only for a prompt response.
Dr. Tanko Dantata.
