An example of the e-mails I receive daily ....

Dear Sir./Madam
It is obvious you have been receiving communications from different
source claiming to have authorization to release your stalled funds
and from my investigation you have been made you spend so much money
on frivolous demand of different fees and fictitious documents thereby
creating avenue to demand moneys from you.
Your overdue outstanding Payment have received the attention of the
Office of the Presidency on Foreign Payment l Matters. Following the
Meeting held recently with the Monetary Policy Regulatory Committee,
the Federal Executive council and Presidency, I have been authorized
to contact and transfer your payment to your account without further

With the help of the Nigerian Police, special FBI and CIA agents in
Nigeria, We have managed to apprehend some scam syndicates who made
some confessional statements and indicted Ex-Governor of Central Bank
of Nigeria(Professor Charles Soludo and his successor Dr.Lamido
Sanusi, Mr.Godwin Emefiele. They have confessed how they have
impersonated the names of some UN Executive members like MR BAN
KI-MOON, Mrs. Inga-Britt Ahlenius and Ms.Carman L. Lapointe Mrs
Paulette Beal to defraud their victims.
We have noticed that these corrupt officials in charge of foreign
payments are very ruthless and have defrauded so many foreigners we
have also discovered the irregularities in foreign payment files
intentionally masterminded by these officials and urgently called the
attention of the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Rtd General
M. Buhari who came to a resolution that the Federal Government of
Nigeria must pay all amount owed to each of the people whose names
were found in the list till this irregularity has been corrected.
This is to draw your attention to the new development in your stalled
payment which you have struggled to receive without success from
different quarters ,offices and countries, be advised that the payment
of your funds have been approved for immediate Transfer to you. The
sum representing the final batch installment is ready for transfer to
you through the Government of Nigeria correspondence Bank where the
Government maintains its foreign reserve.
Be that as it may, the Government is not interested in confiscating
any foreign payment which is proven to have been approved genuinely
and you are hereby advised to forward immediately the following.
As soon as these are received, we shall take legal step to finalize
the hitch free transfer modalities.
Sincerely Yours
Prof Karl Nwankwo
Director, Foreign Payment Department
