in good trust
From: Dr. Sule Gidado.
A very pleasant day to you.
It is my great pleasure writing you this letter on behalf of my colleagues. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of a deal hereunder for the mutual benefit of all parties, and would urge you to keep it confidential because of its sensitive nature.Dr. Sule Gidado is my name, 52 years old and a renowned economist, happily married with 2 lovely children. Special Adviser on petroleum affairs to the former Military Head of State and presently, Chairman of the Contract Review Panel (C.R.P) appointed by the new Civilian administration, with the mandate to re-evaluate, scrutinize, approve and recommend for payment all previously awarded and executed contracts for the Petroleum Trust Fund (P.T.F). With the co-operation
of two other top officials, we have in our possession an overdue payment in US funds totaling $29.6million US.
The said funds represent certain percentage of the contract value executed on behalf of the Petroleum Ministry by a consortium of foreign contracting firms (ABB Lummus J.G.C of Japan, Julius Berger of Germany and Fouguerolle of France) for Engineering and procurement work in Rivers and Delta State of Nigeria in 2002, which was over-invoiced. Though the actual contract cost (US$500 M) has been paid to the original contractor, leaving this excess balance unclaimed.
The Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under the able leadership of President Olusegun Obansanjo believes that private investment in general, and foreign direct investment in particular, are the real engines for sustainable economic development, for which reason
it has continued to encourage investments in the key growth-oriented sector of Petroleum/Crude Oil with sincere determination to pay foreign contractors all debts owed to them, so as to continue to enjoy close relationships and a mutually beneficial co-operation with foreign governments and non-governmental financial agencies. As a result we included our bills for approvals with the co-operation of some officials at the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Due to the fact that we are still in active Government service and are not allowed to own/operate foreign accounts while in service in accordance with the laws of my country, we were compelled to contact you and more so, owing to the fact that the contract was done by foreign contractors and payments made in foreign currency (United State Dollars), the more reason we urgently need your
assistance to receive and secure this fund for us.
All modalities for the successful transfer of this fund including legal and administrative requirements in Nigeria as well as that of International Arbitration has been worked out. We hope to conclude this transaction within ten (10) banking days once you open communication with me to furnish me your willingness and by fax reconfirm the following information needed for easy transfer of the fund:
(1) Your company or full names
(2) Company Address
(3) Phone/Fax Numbers
(4) Bank Name, Address, Account Name, Number and any other information.
I have the authority of my colleagues involved to propose that, should you be willing to assist us in this transaction your share as compensation will be 20% while my colleagues and I shall receive 75%, and the balance of 5% shall be
used to reimburse all expenditures, taxes and miscellaneous expenses so incurred.
It does not matter whether or not you/your company does projects of the nature described here. The assumption is that your company won the major contract and subcontracted it to other companies. More often than not, big trading companies and firms of unrelated fields win major contracts and subcontract same to more specialized firms for execution.
This business itself is 100% safe and risk free, as long as you treat it with utmost confidentiality. Also your specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this mutually beneficial transaction. I am reposing a great deal of confidence in you here and hope that you will not betray/disappoint us.
Dr. Sule Gidado.
