ATTENTION : THE PRESIDENT/C.E.O
RE: URGENT & CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL
I am MR. BRUNO OJIE Member Contract Award Committee of the above Department
Terms of Reference
My term of reference involves the award of contracts to multinational companies.
My office is saddled with the responsibility of contract award, screening, categorization and
prioritization of projects embarked upon by Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) as
well as feasibility studies for selected projects and supervising the project consultants
involved. A breakdown of the fiscal expenditure by this office as at the end of last fiscal
quarter of 2000 indicates that DPR paid out a whooping sum of US$736M(Seven Hundred
And Thirty Six Million, United States Dollars) to successful contract beneficiaries. The DPR
is now compiling beneficiaries to be paid for the second Quarter of 2001.
The crux of this letter is that the finance/contract department of the DPR deliberately over -
invoiced the contract value of the various contracts awarded. In the course of
disbursements, this department has been able to accumulate the sum of US$38.2M(Thirty-
eight Million, two hundred Thousand U.S Dollars) as the over-invoiced sum. This money is
currently in a suspense account of the DPR account with the Debt Reconciliation
Committee (DRC). We now seek to process the transfer of this fund officially as contract
payment to you as a foreign contractor, who will be fronting for us as the beneficiary of the
fund. In this way we can facilitate these funds into your nominated account for possible
investment abroad. We are not allowed as a matter of government policy to operate any
foreign account to transfer this fund into.
However, for your involvement in assisting us with this transfer into your nominated account
we have evolved a sharing formula as follows:
(1) 20% for you as the foreign partner
(2) 75% for I and my colleagues
(3) 5% will be set aside to defray all incidental expenses both Locally and
Internationally during the course of this transaction.
We shall be relying on your advice as regard investment of our share in any business in
your country. Be informed that this business is genuine and 100% safe considering the high-
power government officials involved. Send your private fax/telephone numbers. Upon your
response we shall provide you with further information on the procedures. Feel free to send
response by Fax: 234-1-7590904 / TEL: 234-1-7591519 expecting your response urgently.
All enquiries must be directed straight to the undersigned by FAX OR PHONE.
Looking forward to a good business relationship with you.
MR. BRUNO OJIE
