ATTN: CEO / Managing Director,

I got your details from an online directory and having been motivated by your personal status, I decided to approach you for a possible partnership in a multi-million dollar project in crude oil trading. The company I work for is Sonangol – Sociedade Nacional de Combustiveis de Angola, Liason office in Johannesburg, South Africa. We have urgent need for 2 million barrel of Crude Oil per month for 12 months (1 year) from MINPET (ANGOLA MINISTRY OF PETROLEUM).

As one of the Company Executive Administrators and Director, I’m directly in charge of crude oil purchase in our company. Also, I have the responsibility of looking for a crude oil licensed agent with the ANGOLAN MINISTRY OF PETROLEUM (MINPET), in other to make this business possible. This is so because MINPET does not sell their product directly to end-buyers, but through their approved licensed agents who acts as their sales agent/middle man between them and their buyers.

My proposal is this, that we (me and you) work together to get the MINPET license in your name or that of your Company, which will authorize you to be a Licensed agent for purposes getting the oil from MINPET and releasing same to my Company, Sonangol – Sociedade Nacional de Combustiveis de Angola . The allocation the Crude Oil to you or your company gives us the privilege to operate as the first lifter of the crude oil from the block. This attracts USD$4.00 discount per barrel to the us. The USD$4.00 is our (lifter) entitlement MINPET. Also selling to my company entitles us to USD$2.00 per barrell.

As we are going to be lifting 2 Million barrels per a month from the block. The USD$4.00 discount from block sums up to USD$8 Million per a month, and the USD$2.00 from Sonangol – Sociedade Nacional de Combustiveis de Angola comes to USD$4 Million per a month. This will make a total of USD$12 Million grossearning/income to our group per a transaction per month. On equity sharing ratio, both of us will be netting a total USD$12 Million as profits monthly. These proceeds (commission) will be shared equally on equity between us at the end of every sale operational, monthly.

I will assist you step by step in the process leading to securing the Oil license from MINPET and thereafter introduce you to our company for the signing of all the sales agreements with the (SINGAPORE REFINING COMPANY) being the end buyer.Once this is acceptable to you, I shall involve an Attorney who is well versed in Oil and Gas industry to assist us with the relevant documentation and give the transaction the legal backing it deserve as I do not want us to go against any law in any way.

Please note: My intentions to profit from this operation should be kept CONFIDENTIAL between the two of us. It is against my work ethics to profit from my company’s dealing with MINPET but I have seen this as a good opportunity for me to save enough money against my retirement hence my decision to source for a partner who can work with me in this regard.

Contact me if you are interested in this deal, so that I can give you further details.

Best Regards,

Engr: C.J. Pinto

Executive Administrator

    Thank you for this posting. I have definitely been contacted with this exact email (same writing, same contact name and same background. I have gathered all the emails sent, and all the documents sent between us. Indeed, Mr Pinto has called me in New Zealand several times urging to complete the issue of the Oil License from MINPET (Angolan Ministry of Petroleum) due to his intention of leaving SONANGOL where he is purported to work as an Executive director.

    I have played along with this to see the documents that have been issued from his scammers and they are very sophisticated, however, I worked in the Oil Industry in Asia for 10 years and am plenty aware of the short comings that have been used. Still, it was fun while it lasted. I managed to push them to pay their 60% share of the joint deal before I would consider sending my 40% share. They even sent a wire copy with all the correct notings, but my suspicions were obviously justified when I found this site and the WARNING.

    Thank you for the posting.

    My name is Horatio and I am currently present in New Zealand. Should you wish for me to forward all documents and emails of this scam I would be happy to.
