Attention: Beneficiary,


This is in pursuit of your supposed overdue/outstanding payment; I have the opportunity to explain to you the controversy surrounding your payment, following the change in your bank account.

I am Mr. Godwin Emefiele, Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria. My office monitors and controls the affairs of all banks and Financial institutions in Nigeria concerned with foreign claim payments. I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both on the local and  international levels in line with foreign claim settlements.

Really, this fund is still existing in our government, annual report payment schedule on foreign debts as unclaimed and in your favour as the sole beneficiary but it is unfortunate that your Nigerian representative were acting in collaboration with some government official here in Nigeria to divert this money and have made derogatory remarks on your payment file, thereby unlawfully demanding excessive taxes and levies just to frustrate you, and i am sure that this is the reason why this fund has not been transferred to your account.

We are deeply sorry for every inconvenience their actions might have caused you due to their financial incredibility.  It should be noted that, the reason why i am contacting you is to seek clarity if you have mandated one Mr. Edmond Peters from Britain to collect your fund into his Zurich account on your behalf.

Be grateful to God that my monitoring unit in the central bank has saved you, otherwise if we had not contacted you, the impersonator would have happily gone away with your money. However, I am not going to take this easy with them, as i must get the culprits arrested. Now, I want to use this opportunity to warn you to stop further communicating with anybody or office regarding your payment.

We are working around the clock to ensure that your fund is transferred to you as soon as your are able to comply with the provisions of the relevant Nigerian laws and status that governs banking and international fund transfer to a recipient abroad.

All you need to do right now to take back possession of your funds is to re-confirm your receiving bank account details as stated below to facilitate the swift telegraphic wire transfer of your overdue/outstanding fund to your nominated bank account.  This is very important to avoid misdirection of your fund into a wrong account, as we will not be held liable for any misappropriation of fund.
