My new persona is Jerry Garcia (of the Grateful Dead). Here's my first, so far unsuccessful, attempt. I guess he's wise to me.

Dear Sir / Madam,

NOTE:REPLY TO: ( [email protected] )

I am Engr Mamud Takar, Chairman of the Tender Committee of the Nigerian
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). My Committee is principally
with payment of all contract awarded from 2000 to date, in order of
as regard capital projects of the NNPC.

I am positive and convince that you would provide us with solution to a
money transfer deal valued at US$31 Million (Thirty One Million United
States Dollars) and subsequently a joint business venture.

In the course of our duties as values, and project inspectors for the
on-going liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project, we have over-invoiced the
value of some jobs done by foreign contractors for the NNPC to the tune

As follows: -
(1) Computer optimization and Installation 16,000.000.00.
(2) Installation of 250,000.00 Monax Turbine$10,000.000.00
(3) Turn Around Maintenance $5,000,000.00

The money will be shared as follows after transfer, 30% for you
Owner) 70% for me and my colleagues. To be able to claim the funds, we
be purporting your company as one of the contractor / beneficiary of
funds so all procedures for international transfer shall be strictly
followed, as we have worked out all modalities for a swift and risk

NOTE:REPLY TO: ( [email protected] )

Yours Faithfully,

Engr Mamud Takar.

So, I reply:

Dear Jerome J.Garcia,

Thanks for your email which I received and I am very pleased with its
I am sure this business will be of mutual benefit to both of us and
create room for future business relationship.

This money is presently in our corporation's account and the only way
commence and conclude this transfer perfectly is that I have to present
you as a contractor who executed a contract for the Federal Government
Nigeria with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation [NNPC] now

To this, it therefore becomes necessary that all the document regarding
the execution & conclusion of this assume contract must bear your name
after this we have to submit these document to the Federal Ministry of
for processing, authentication and
transfer of the funds into your account.

Kindly note that as soon as I receive the required information from you
such as,

1) Your Bank name and Address.
2) Account numbers (personal or company is ok)
3) Your Telephone & Fax number.

I shall immediately pay, back date and procure the under listed

(a) CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION: A proof that your company has been
registered with the Allied Matter Act of Nigeria thus is incorporated.

This are the document which must be procured and submitted along with
for claims of the US$31m to the Federal Ministry of Finance and
being equal this funds should be in your account latest after 4-5 days
submission. As you must have known that a transaction of this magnitude
will require us spending thus to achieve this aim and of course I have

Mamud Takar.

I told him I needed more info about his identity, but I also tried the ASEM trick.
