Attention: The Beneficiary, After serious thought, I decided to reach you directly and personally because I do not have anything against you but your Nigerian partners. I am the director of the computer/SWIFT department of the Central bank of Nigeria. Sometime in the past your Nigerian partners approached me through a friend of mine who works with one of the federal parastatals here in Nigeria and requested that I assist them conclude a money transfer deal. They gave me your name, your Company's name and bank account particulars and told me to put them in the computer system in the Lab so that it will appear as if you are one of the genuine contractors cleared for payment. According to them, they wanted to use this Strategy to transfer a huge amount of U.S. Dollars, which they accumulated through inflated contract awards, and the money has been floating in the CBN since the original contractors have been paid off, so they wanted to use your account to transfer the surplus out of Nigeria. We agreed that once I do this, they would give me US$100,000.00 and give me another US$100,000.00 when I Release the funds to your account. When they saw that, I have done what they requested and your name had been approved among the list of those to be paid, instead of giving me the agreed deposit of US$100,000.00 they started avoiding me and resorted to threats. I immediately deleted the transfer code of the funds, which is only known to me because of my position and released other contractors fund without yours. They became angry the more when they realized that their threat did not work, and started bribing other officials to get another approval to transfer the money to you without success. Approvals are free. I am 100% responsible for the delay and obstruction because of their breach of agreement. If you doubt what I have just told you, pay any amount that they will ask you to pay now and after a short while they will come up with another reason for you to pay again and it goes on and on. If you want us to work together, the below are my conditions: 1. I Will Have 30% of the Money Because It Is Only Two of Us Left For Now 2. You Will Bear the Full Cost of the Transfer Alone 3. As You Can See, It Will Be Useless And A Mere Waste Of Time And Money If You Continue With Any Other Person, Hence We Will Conclude This Transaction Together And With Utmost Secrecy. If these conditions are suitable and acceptable to you, contact me immediately to let us finalize this deal finally. I have attached to this email our official SWIFT Transfer Form to complete and once it is has been verified and processed the contract payment would be released to your provided bank account. However, If you are not interested, I advise you to forget the funds as It will be returned to our consolidated national reserve. Finally, you will have to accept to keep this transaction strictly confidential, if you accept my submission, Regards, Mr. Ayuli Jemide. Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N)
