Mr. Tunde Lemo

My attention has been drawn to your payment which has been delayed.

Records available indicate that your payment has been severely delayed
as a result of high level of corruption,disloyalty among government
officials within various government establishments coupled with
activities of fraudsters and crooks which has griped information about
your payment in the past and also your inability to authenticate your
representative in Nigeria.

Your payment has been listed for review and release in our first
quarter series for the present financial year. This follows the report
received from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Federal
Ministry of Finance that confirmed your payment outstanding. Having
made an in-depth study of the series of payment procedure already adopted
which still did not bring your payment to completion, and
having successfully reviewed your claim as being legitimate, we have
decided to directly supervise your payment.

Yours was a peculiar case as I was much surprise the circumstances
surrounding your payment. I received the below information from the
records and statistic department after the investigation and review
exercise as I was informed that your file was long cleared and
approved for payment but the final transfer was withheld due to your
inability to meet the financial demands of some criminal syndicate
operating within the corridors of power, consequently, the transfer
was canceled and payment elapsed leading to the reversal of your payment to
Central Bank of Nigeria’s account. Several attempts were
made by the same syndicate to divert your payment also leading to
alteration of vital external debt documents in your file, which left
your file ineligible for payment.

As a result of all these, I have successfully reviewed your fund claim
as being legitimate and I have decided to directly supervise your
payment, which has finally been approved for release. Meanwhile in order to
guide against fraud, the presidency has directed henceforth
that every approved payment shall be made only from our Grant account
for Debt settlement with the HSBC Bank London,England to successful
beneficiaries through either Certify International Bank Draft or ATM
Master card.

What this means is that your total fund in claim and the Accrued
interest of shall be raised in your favour and which shall be sent to
you by courier. However, prior to the dispatch of the Bank Draft to you via
courier,
you are required to re confirm your contact address for the dispatch
of the Bank Draft to you. you shall only be required to pay us a
handling/shipment fee of just $750 prior to your Bank Draft shipment
to you.

we shall send you copy of the HSBC draft and Proof of Fund Ownership
Certificate to you in my next mail for your perusal immediately on
your confirmation to pay the required handling/shipment fee of $750.

To further buttress my claim, i hereby enclosed copy of my official
working ID Card for your perusal.

Barr. Zaharah

Hello Dear,

I am Zaharah, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to Mr. Imran Waheed, a national of Pakistan who used to work with an oil servicing company here in the United Kingdom after which be referred to as my client.

Mr. Imran Waheed 49 years of age made a fixed deposit of funds valued at €9,000,000.00 (Nine Million Euros) with a Bank here in Europe and unfortunately lost his life in a Bhoja Air crash Boeing 737-200, registration AP-BKC performing flight B4-213 from Karachi to Islamabad (Pakistan) with 121 passengers and 6 crew members on board on April 20th 2012 on his visit to his country as you can see on the following link:
http://rt.com/news/plane-crash-pakistan-boeing-580/

He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents related to the deposit that is still in my possession.

Recently, the governing body of the Bank contacted me on this matter, requesting that I should notify the next of kin of my late client to claim the funds and I am yet to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the fund. I know that my client had no living next of kin but I went ahead and made several inquiries to his embassy to locate any of my late client’s extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. Under a clear and legitimate agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin, so that my late client’s fund will not be confiscated by the Bank.

You and I can share the money, you will be entitled to part of the money for your role as the relative and next of kin of my late client. Please note that there is no risk involved as all the necessary legal documents that will be used to back you up as the legal beneficiary and next of kin of my late client will be procured.

All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and utmost good faith to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law.

Kindly, get in touch with me through my e-mail ( zaharah@qq.com ) to enable us discuss further. You may also send your telephone number so that I can call you. Do not forget that a project of this magnitude requires utmost confidentiality and sincerity.

I look forward to your urgent response.

Thank you,

Barr. Zaharah

YOUR IMMEDIATE CONTRACT PAYMENT.
CONTRACT#: MAV/NNPC/FGN/MIN/014.

Attention:

The Federal Government of Nigeria has been seriously warned by the United States Government, International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, United Nations (UN) and other international bodies to make sure we settle most of our outstanding foreign debts we owed to Next of Kin’s. Fund Beneficiaries and foreign contractors that executed contract with us immediately, this program is organized by the Board of Trustees and Directors for the end of the Year “POVERTY REDUCTION AND ERADICATION”. We are using our reputable and well known organization to let you know that you are one of our chosen beneficiaries for this program of “POVERTY REDUCTION AND ERADICATION” in your country e-mail directory.

We hereby inform you that you have successfully been chosen and compensated for an International ATM card written out in your name in the amount of $750, 000, 00 in our West Africa regional Annex. Now, for the compensated price, you will have to contact the Finance House and the Compensation Department for your perusals and claims of your compensated price and my dear beneficiary, below is the contact of the Finance House and Compensation Department (FHCD) for the collection and claims of your international certificated ATM card:

But, a very surprising record was discovered in your payment file that is why you have not been contacted about this since then. Records showed that your inheritance payment has been approved four times and duly completed two times. Also we found out that these funds totaling $750,000,00 was transferred directly from the central bank of Nigeria to the below stated bank account on your authorization and an international ATM CARD was also sent to your house address. This has now resulted in bringing the USA and British Government into the case and we really want you to explain to us what you know about this transfer/payment and delivery.

BANK NAME: STANDARD CHATTERED BANK,
BANK ADDRESS, 138-141 1ST FLOOR, EDINBURGH TOWER,
THE LANDMARK, 15 QUEENS ROAD, CENTRAL HONG KONG,
ACCOUNT NAME: INDO-CHINA GROUP LTD,
A/C #: USD114-102-5567-8,
SWIFT CODE: SCBL 11K111

The most baffling part is this payment keeps coming up in every period of debt reconciliation and verification always receives approval like now. NOW OUR QUESTION IS, HAVE YOU RECEIVED YOUR FULL PAYMENT OR ANY PART OF YOUR FUND ENTITLEMENT OWED TO YOU BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT? WE NEED AN ANSWER FROM YOU WITHIN 24HOURS FROM NOW. AND IF WE DO NOT HEAR FROM YOU IMMEDIATELY YOU RECEIVE THIS MESSAGE TODAY, WE WILL ASSUME YOU ARE INVOLVED AND HAVE RECEIVED OVER PAYMENT, WHICH ONE SHOULD BE RETURNED TO NIGERIA

Help us to help you, If not call him immediately you receive this message today on is direct number(+2348180201715) or send me a details email disclaiming the information so that you will be issued with claim identification code (CIC) which will help you to secure your claim and payment from fraudulent officials. And also you will be advised and guided accordingly on how you will receive your legitimate fund entitlement from the Nigerian Government, which will be credited into your nominated bank account within 72hours from now or delivered to you as well to your door step.

Therefore, i would advise you to contact FBI Agent Rev. Kelvin Williams for assistance and inform him that your CASE FILE is 54AC003. Contact him directly via the information below if you are yet to receive your funds.

(3) Grant Number: MICC/97846563459/206
(4) Personal Identification Number (PIN): 0866750

Once again stop contacting those people. I advise that you contact Rev. Kelvin Williams so that he can help you in the collection of your ATM CARD payment instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction and the FBI agent can also direct you to the paying bank.

Finally remember that I have forwarded instruction to the finance house on your behalf to send the International ATM card to you as soon as you contact them without delay. Please be informed that you should treat this as confidential as ever and in good faith from the Board and Management of the Organization, Also be informed that the International ATM CARD must get to you through a courier company which you will be responsible for the fees as soon as you contact the agent and also if you want the fund to be transferred as well through the paying bank.

What you have to do now is to contact the Rev. Kelvin Williams as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date, The only money you will send to the agent to deliver your International ATM card to your postal Address in your country is ($220USD) Dollars only being documentation and Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don’t be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $220USDollars, beside if you fail to comply with the needed $220 US Dollars required there’s no way we can deliver the International ATM card to your country.

You are to provide the following information.
