    Dear Sir,

    Million Four Hundred Thousand U. S. Dollars
    (US$20,400,000.00) to your account for further private
    investment purpose. Hence our request for your
    assistance.

    SOURCE OF FUND: This amount to be transferred into
    your account accurred from over-invoiced contract
    amount for the construction of Oil Refinery,
    Sub-Station in Nigeria (Northern Region) in 1995 to
    expatriate companies.

    incurred by you and us during this business, and 60%
