Dear Beneficiary, My name is Mr.Adebayo Adelabu,the newly appointed deputy governor CBN.This is to bring the good news to you that I have been mandated by the President Federal Republic in conjunction with the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the Senate Committee on Foreign Debts Reconciliation and Implementation Panel on Contract/inheritance/compensation funds to complete all the unpaid Contract/inheritance/lottery fund. You are required as a matter of urgency to reconfirm your information including your name, phone number and your address for verification and immediate payment within 24 hours. To this effect, the sum of TEN MILLION, SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$10.7m) has been approved for you. I wish to inform you that all matters relating to the release of this payment is now under my control and supervision. This development has become necessary due to the activities of unpatriotic government/CBN officials and impostors who keep on frustrating every effort to settle our clients by making requests for unauthorized fees and levies from them. We apologize for any delay you might have encountered in the past; your payment is now 100% Guaranteed Kindly choose from these three modes of payment (wire transfer, diplomatic cash payment and ATM card). Best Regards, Mr.Adebayo Adelabu Deputy Governor CBN
