Good Day?

 Dear Sir/Madam,
My name is Mac Okpara, 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 KUBUWA WATER PROJECT in 

the oil rich Niger Delta. He was 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 


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 does not matter.
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.

I wish to state here again that 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 through my email address:
