DATE: 08/28/2014
The sum of Ten Million, Five hundred thousand U.S Dollars has been sent into the United States of America in your name as the beneficiary.
The said funds is still under intense investigation from this office regarding it’s source.
The Central Bank of Nigeria knowing fully well that they do not have enough facilities to effect this payment directly into your account, used what we know as a secret diplomatic transit payment (S.T.D.P) to pay this fund through wire transfer.
However, Secret diplomatic transfer payments are normally funds related to drug/terrorist and money laundering system of payment.
The Question now is? why must your payment be made in such secret transfer? If your transaction is legitimate and not related to drug/terrorism, why can’t  the Central Bank in Nigeria effect direct transfer into your account than secret diplomatic payment transfer?
Due to the increased difficulties and thorough scrutiny by the American authorities when funds come in through such payment process from Europe, Africa and Middle East and based on the records we have had in the past, such method of payment has always been identified as drug/ terrorist/money laundering funds.
However, in line with the United States policy on funds transfer, as soon as these funds are transferred into the United States, it is our compulsory obligations to establish the credentials and official recognition of this funds before final crediting into your account.
For this reason therefore, You are advised to contact the United States Funds monitoring unit, a sub-division of the US Treasury department for the certificate of funds legality.
This document or certificate empowers the transfer and also licenses that funds originating from Europe, Africa and Middle East are free from terrorist/drug and money laundering.
Failure to provide this document within 3 days will warrant us to confiscate these funds and further charge you for money laundering offenses.
We will allow the funds to be released into your account as soon as you make provision for the essential document.
Yours faithfully,
James B. Comey

Attention: The Approved Beneficiary,



This is to inform you that your payment will be released to any of your nominated bank account before the 22 of September,2014 which is the deadline approved by the new administration to conclude this Federal Government Foreign Payment Settlement exercise. A copy of the payment advice to this effect will be sent to you accordingly as soon as your fund is release to your bank account.

This directive comes after the administration of President Jonathan E. Goodluck was consulted by the UN and the World Bank representatives over unpaid foreign contract/inheritance payment to foreign beneficiaries who as at when due have complied with their debt payment release processes.

In view of the above we have been mandated by the Federal Government of Nigeria to immediately release all outstanding debts due in favor of foreign beneficiaries in conformity with the ” External Debt Appropriation Act”Special Budgetary Allocation for settlement of all outstanding payments in favor of all approved foreign beneficiaries and it includes the sum of $10, 500, 000.00 (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) in your payment file which have been unfolded as unclaimed funds in our vault.

This is within the limits of the UN and the World Bank respectively on External debt servicing for the 2013 fiscal year.

Based on the ongoing war against corruption and fraud within and outside the Government parastatals and its officials, you are advised to desist from further communication with agents, and representatives or any office/person(s) contacting you recently in respect to your payment.

The Government is aware that most contractors and foreign beneficiaries receive SCAM letters and advances from the criminal minded officials and hereby warn any beneficiary who might be tempted to succumb to their fraudulent scheme as the Nigeria Government will not be held liable for such illegitimate connection between the beneficiary and the unauthorized persons.

Consequently, as you may be aware of the corrupt practices which has been going on in Nigeria for over a decade now, the present democratic Government has introduced a new policy to certify any genuine approved foreign payment through the Federal Ministry of Finance under the supervision of a Panel of inquiry set up by the Presidency to monitor and report any misconduct that might arise in executing this directives.

Kindly acknowledge the receipt of this letter by return email:tdlemo@yahoo.com.hk for prompt assistance to the process and immediate release of the approved payment without interruption.

Yours faithfully.

Good day ,
Let me introduce myself , I am Philip Barnet, Staff of Investec Bank
(England). I am contacting you concerning Anthony, a deceased customer and
an investment he placed under our banks management 10 years ago. I would
respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential
and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of
this mail. I contacted you independently of my investigation and no one is
informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain
facts that I believe would be of interest to you. In 2004, the subject
matter; Mr Anthony came to our bank to engage in business discussions with
our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial
portfolio of Fifty million united states dollars, which he wished to have
us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his
case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the De-factor
chief operations officer of the private banking sector, especially given
the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous
occasions prior to any investments being placed.
I encourage and gave advice on how the funds should be invested, Based on
my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made
attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit
and interest stood at this point at over 2 million United States Dollars,
this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk
guaranteed returns on investments. This bank also gives the choice to
depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself,
ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely
they do not nominate next of kin.
Most Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also
usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; the deceased
died without a testate. In line with our internal processes for account
holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good
faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This
investigation has for the past months been unfruitful.
We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation
affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem. It is this
investigation that resulted in my being furnished with your details as a
possible relative of the deceased. My official capacity dictates that I am
the only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to
receive the results of the investigation. What this means, is that our
dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family member.
In the process of review of our financial report by my department, I
discovered that both of you have a similar last name; hence I contacted
you so that I can give you further briefing on my intention and how to
disburse the funds and estate he left behind. My proposal; you share the
same surname with our late client; I am prepared to place you in a
position to instruct the Bank to release the deposit to you as the closest
surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share
the money with you in half. That is, I will simply nominate you as the
next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the
proceeds 50/50.
As a banker we see so much cash and funds being re-assigned daily. I would
want us to keep communication for now strictly by email Please and phone
number i will provide you when next i read from you, note I am a family
man; I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a
measure of fear as to the consequences, but I know within me that nothing
ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or
on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private
banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord,
we should act swiftly on this.
Please get back to me immediately for further communication  .
Philip Barnet.
