I am interested in a partnership investment program with you or your
corporation. First permit me to introduce myself. I am Mr. Ahmed Abba
Director General of the Lagos State Independent Power Project (IPP). I
hopeyou will make out time to study this proposal and get back to me as
soon as you can.

In the execution of the above project provided by ENRON/AES Energy Company
(USA) which is currently delivering 270 megawatts of electricity into the
national grid at PHCN's Egbin thermal station, Ikorodu. I Collabrated with
the Firm on a mutual agreement on the proceed commission of which I have
received my share of $20.000,000=(Twenty million dollars).

As the Director General of the Project, I cannot introduce or circulate
this funds into the Nigerian banking system considering my provisional
duty and the considering the fact that I earn less than $1,000US dollars
monthly coupled with the Bureau of conduct guidelines and regulations for
Public Civil Servants.

The above situation prompted my decision to solicit your co-operation to
take delivery of this funds into your custody for my proposed investment
as you will be adequately compensated with $5,000,000 US dollars. I will
arrange all necessary procedures in ensuring a smooth process for the
funds to get to you. I will appreciate you contact me once you receive
this mail via my e-mail abba@angels.la indicating your capability
and willingness to enable me to give you more details of the modus
operandi of getting this money to you
hitch free.

your decision. Please visit
