While 75% is for me. Please note that I will arrange to meet with you immediately after the successful conclusion of the transfer, the 75% share of mine will be used for investment overseas. Your assistance and co-operation is highly needed. I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free. If you are interested I will require your banking information as mentioned below: 1.

Regards Eng Frederick Okosun. so i sent him a reply back to which he then replied Dear Shahed, I received yourÂ e-mail, IÂ quite appreciate your response.This transfer must be done in the mode of a contract payment,this means all due process of contract payment in Nigeria has to be strictly adhered to. This has to begin by first incorporating your company here in Nigeria with the corporate affairs commission, we are the one, that will incorporate yourcompany here in Nigeria and send you the require documents of this incorporation.As if your company has been existing in Nigeria since 2002. We will then proceed to register your company here in Nigeria with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (N.N.P.C) under category âdâ. This will entitles your company to execute contracts above ten million united states dollars(us$10,000,000.00) with the N.N.P.C. Subsequently, we must file in applications for payment to the respective government ministries concerned with contract payment. This will be initiated from the N.N.P.C. by my colleague and I can forwarded to the federal ministry of finance which has to approve the contract payment and further refer it to a committee known as the debt reconciliation committee (DRC). The committee has the final authorisation on all foreign contract payments. therefore, this committee will contact you directly as the beneficiary to let you know of its readiness to transfer fund into your account. you do not need to discuss this with your bankers, since the paying bank from here will inform your bank that you are receiving the money for contract payment. to enable you perform this role of the beneficiary of the contract payment, we will send to you by fax or email all documents acquired at each stage of the transaction. Please send me your complete names and address,telephone and fax numbers and complete details of your banking particulars. This transaction will be completed in ten working days. My share will be 70% of the amount transferred, while 25% will be retained by you as compensation for your role.
