Request for Assistance.

I am Dr. Pual Tanko Joli (MNIM), the co-ordinator of the Federal Government of Nigeria contract
review panel of the National Gas Company (NGC).

Sometime ago, a contract was awarded to a conglomerate of foreign companies by my committee on
behalf of the NGC, the contract was over-invoiced to the tune of US$24.5 million. This was done
deliberately. The over-invoicing was a deal by members of my committee to benfit from the
project. We now desire to transfer this money which is presently in a suspense account of the
NGC in the Debt Reconciliation Committee (DRC) into an account which we expect you to kindly
provide for us, this we believe will not be so much of a burden to you.

For providing the account where we shall remit the money, you will be entitled to 25% of the
money, 70% will be for me and my partners while 5% has been mapped out from the total sum to
cover any expenses that may be incurred by us during the course of this transaction, both local
and international expenses, these also include taxes that may arise.

I would require:
A. Name and address of company/beneficiary
B. Your bank account number, bank address and other information relevant to the project at hand.
C. It is not necessary that the account you are providing should have money in it, what matters
is that it should had been in existence for a while (accounts dynamics) and you should have a 100%
control over it.

The above information would be used to make formal applications as a matter of procedure for the
release of the money for onward transfer to your account. It does not matter whether or not your
company or you performed contract projects of the nature described here, the assumption is that
you won a major contract and sub-contracted it out to other companies. More ofter than not, big
trading companies or individuals of unrelated field win major contrats and sub-contracts it out
to more specialised firms for execution of such contracts. We have strong and reliable connections
and contacts at the Debt Reconciliation Committee (DRC) and the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF)
and we have no doubts that all this money will be released and transferred if we get the necessary
foreign partner in this transaction. Therefore, when the business is successfully concluded, we
shall through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the concerned government
ministries for 100% security.

We want this money to be transferred to the overseas account which you are going to kindly provide
for safe keeping pending when we will determine how we want our portion of the money, all expenses
regarding the account opening if not already in existence shall be borne by you, all monies spent
from personal purse during the course of this transaction are however reimburseable as already
stated from the 5% that had been set aside for this purpose after the transfer of the funds have
been effected into your account that you will be providing for the purpose of this business.

Please, contact me immediately through fax (234 1 7590371) or e-mail to ascertain your interest in
doing us this favour, so that if you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partner
to carry out this transaction. Fortunately, if you are interested in assisting me, please send the
reqyuired information mentioned through my direct fax number: (234 1 7590371) or email at any time
of the day. For more details on this transaction, send me a fax or email me.

If you will be of assistance, I will surely appreciate and thank you for your kindness in giving
me this assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Pual T. Joli (MNIM).
