INTERIM MANAGEMET COMMITTEE (IMC)
LAGOS – NIGERIA.
FROM THE DESK OF: DR. OKORO WILLIAMS.
Through The courtesy of business opportunity, I take
liberty anchored on strong desire to established business relationship with you to write this letter of request for partnership which I hope you will give your urgent attention.
We are members of Federal Government Interim
Management Committee (IMC)of the PTF (Petroleum Trust Fund), who are interested in commencing an immediate business relationship with you. We
hereby solicit strongly for your assistance, to enable us transfer (FOREX) Funds which total US$15.500,000.00 (fifteen Million, Five Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars) into a reliable personal or company bank account overseas which you have absolute control over.
These funds are presently trapped in the PTF account with the Central Bank of Nigeria. These are as a result of grossly over-invoiced contracts sum which were executed by the PTF during the
chairmanship of Gen. Buhari (rtd) and are presently under erification. To this effect, the present Civilian
Government of Nigeria set up the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of which I am the Vice Chairman to ascertain all monies accrued of the PTF since inception, ascertain all disbursements made by
the fund and produce inventory for all projects and commitments entered into by the Fund. During our course of assessment of the activities of the Fund, we have identified a lot of misappropriation and over-invoice of contracts sum, which are presently floating in the suspense account of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
However, when the Chairman (Buhari) of PTF under probe was invited by the Committee (IMC) for questioning, he could not explain the reasons for the over-invoice of US$15.5M, rather he pleaded with
us not to expose him. After due consideration, we (the committee members) decided to transfer
the over-inflated sum of US$15.5M into a foreign account for our benefit to avoid him being prosecuted and jailed by the government.
I have been delegated as a matter of capability by my colleagues, to secure the co-operation of an overseas partner into whose account we could transfer this over-invoiced sum with dispatched for onward disbursement among us. Please signal your interest by dispatching your name, phone, and fax number through my email address:

We will share the funds in the ratio, which will be
satisfactory to all concerned under agreement. However, 60% for us (officials), 30% Account owner (you) and 10% to be used in setting all local and foreign expenses incurred which are directly related to this project. Prompt realization is being strongly considered by us over here as our pattern of disbursement.
Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free
and safe as long as you and I maintain maximum confidentiality and secrecy. I am at disposal to entertain any question(s) from you with respect to
this project, so send me the above-mentioned equirements immediately through my email address. I hope this will be the beginning of a fruitful and
mutual beneficial business relationship.
