Dear Friend,

REQUEST FOR URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP Please permit me to introduce myself to you, my name is Mr Joemicheal Sankoh a chartered accountant with the Angolan National Petroleum Corporation and a member of the International contract award committee of the above corporation, which is under the Federal ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources.

With the assistance of some senior officials of the Federal Ministry of Finance and Office of the accountant General of the Federation, we want to quietly transfer the sum of Tewenty Million US Dollars only ($20mUS Dollars only) out of my country Angola.

This US$20M US Dollars was quietly over-estimated on the contract for Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of Fina Petroleos de Angola refinery in Luanda Angola and the Rehabilitation of Petroleum Pipelines, Depot and Jetties.
The actual contract value of this said project was US$172M US Dollars,but my colleagues and I deliberately increased the contract to the tune of $192M US Dollars, of which the over-estimated sum of US$20M US Dollars belongs to us and which amount is what we want to secretly transfer into your personal or company account for safe keeping and further sharing.

The Republica de Government of Angola and the Federal Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources have approved the total sum of US$192 Million US Dollars. The project has been completed and commissioned by the Republica de Government and the original contractors have been paid their Contractual sum and what is left now is the US$20Million US Dollars.

Under this circumstance and upon your acceptance we will register You/your Company as a sub-contractor to the original contractors with my corporation, so that this fund can be transferred into your account without hitch whatsoever.
Our reasons for soliciting foreign assistance to transfer this fund to its designated account is owing to the policy of the Republica de Government of Angola as the code of conduct debars us civil servants (Government Workers) from operating a foreign account, hence we sought your assistance.

After several deliberations with my colleagues, we decided to give you 25% as your entitlement for your assistance for providing your account,while 70% will be for us and the remaining 5% would be used to offset all local /foreign expenses that might be incurred in the course of this transaction.

However this is based on the ground that you would assure me for us of the following:
1.That after the successful transfer of the $20m us dollars into your account, you will give us our own fare share of 70% without running away with the money or sitting on it to our detriment.
2.That you will treat this business with utmost secrecy, Confidentiality,understanding and sincerity, which this business demands.
3.You will assist us (by way of advice) to invest our own share in business venture(s) in your country.

Awaiting your responce
Sincerely yours,
Mr Joemicheal Sankoh [chartered acct.]
