Subject: Re:  Our  Proposed Transaction.

Dear Mantel,
I am surprised that you refuse to contact me either by Phone or email following my last mail to you concerning this project.
1. I want you to earnestly confirm your ability and willingness to prosecute this deal with us.
2. You need to build confidence in us such that we shall be sure of receiving our share when the funds eventually gets into your account. This I beleive need to be cultivated obviously, not by your refusal to correspond with us nor by bluff.
3. I sent my Telephone Number to you already. I shall be grateful to receive your private Telephone & Fax Numbers to enable us communicate effectively.
4. My Colleagues and I have discussed the content of your last email and have agreed to concede 30% of the total fund to you for assisting us to conclude the deal and set aside 5% to cover expenses to be incured during the processing of the projecy. We no doubt, need to discuss this on Telephone before we proceed to initialize transaction proper.
Find below,comprehensive details of the transaction.
We are civil servants with the opportunity to make good money and better our lives and that of our families. The money represents over-invoiced proceeds from contract awarded in my office, the Nigerian Liquified Natural Gas, NLNG. The original contractor has fully been paid for the job done and the projects already commissioned. We deliberately over-invoiced the contract sum so that we can have the inflated amount for ourselves. The only way we can collect the money is through the process of payment to Contractors, as this is the statutory way of disbursement of such funds. More also, this is originally a foreign contract and as such, there must be a Foreign Beneficiary for the funds to be successfully transferred. This transaction shall be concluded within 10 working days from date of submission of Letter of Claims. Your area of specialization shall not be a hindrance to the successful conclusion of this transaction. The $29.5million is presently in the suspense account of the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) with the Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N.). All modalities have been worked out and success would definitely be achieved if all necessary procedures are carefully followed. All necessary documentary approvals would be secured and processed in your nominated Name and Bank Account to be sent by you. As required by law in Nigeria, the following necessary steps and Approvals must be secured first from the various Departments/ Ministries involved for transfer of the funds:
(A). Application for claims for the over-invoiced amount as per Format below. This should be duly completed in your nominated Company letter headed paper, stamped/sealed and signed. Fax this document to me STRICTLY via FAX Number 234-1-7597117.
(B). Obtaining payment approvals in the Nigerian Liquified Natural Gas (NLNG) in your favour as nominated.
(C). Also obtaining Ministerial/ Departmental Approvals in the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation of Nigeria, authorizing payment in your favour.
(D). We shall also obtain payment approval from the Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N.) for the same value in your favour. After this, the C.B.N. will allocate payment to you without further delay.
Once all these procedures are completed, the Central Bank of Nigeria will contact you directly with the Payment Approval and officially nominate a Firm of Solicitors in your favour who may assist you sign the necessary release documents as may be required by law in Nigeria if you cannot come down to Nigeria in person. At this time, you will be required to deal strictly with the solicitors in your capacity as Beneficiary of funds. We cannot deal with the Solicitors and the Central Bank owing to the peculiar nature of this transaction As such, you would be expected to transact with the Solicitors, negotiate their charges, which of course is very minimal. All other documentary approvals charges, Fees, financially and influencing the movement of the payment file to its final stage and other official procedures shall be our sole responsibility completely. Note that we cannot act on your behalf once the solicitors and the Central Bank of Nigeria are involved. The Central Bank of Nigeria and the Solicitors to be appointed MUST NOT know of my/our involvement in this transaction. You will however be required to be in constant contact with me since we shall be remotely monitoring the transaction more also since we know all what is obtainable in concluding such transactions. The Central Bank of Nigeria will issue a certificate of clean funds -Origin, purpose and other necessary details explaining the transfer and genuineness of the fund to your Bank. In this case, you need not alert the Bank of the transfer until it arrives. This process and transaction is absolutely legal and normal except that you did not actually do the job. People get paid daily for Contracts and other proceeds from our Government to home countries. Your/our case cannot be an exception. It will be processed and paid along with other transfers. Please, note that this project is not for hungry starters who cannot afford a solid meal, good influence and good rating. It is for matured, highly spirited and innovative businessmen who can employ all seriousness and trust in what they do.
For strict confidentiality that this deal demands, I sincerely do advise that you contact me on Telephone/Fax Number: 234-1-7745664 immediately you receive this mail. I can also be reached between 11.00 HRS - 17.00 HRS GMT workdays. My time is +1 GMT. Please, ensure you maintain the secrecy and Confidentiality that this transaction demands. I do hope that you find this deal worth Co-operating with. Remember, the taste of the pudding is in the eating. Please, note that time is of essence in this transaction. Feel free to contact me for any explanations.
My most sincere regards to you and family.
Yours Sincerely,
DR. MOHAMMED ZAYYAD.
