From: Mr.Kim Hak-Su
My names are Mr.Kim Hak-Su a consultant with the United Nations. I write to inform you that I came to Nigeria yesterday from America, after series of complains from the FBI and petitions against the Federal Government of Nigeria and the British Government for the rate of scam activities going on in these two nations the UN under my capacity mandated that I come for a first hand investigation and rule out possible solution to the problem.
I believe by the time you will be through with this email you will understand and surely place your mind at rest as you are going to start a new life in no distance time. Most families have lost lives, homes and there great wealth due to the high rate of fraud and scams that has been all over the Nation and the world in general, but since the setup of the Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for the purpose, these crimes has been reduced and we are fighting heavily to put this to an end.
Right now, [900 million] NINE HUNDRED MILLION US Dollars has been recovered from these fraudsters through our Intelligence network, and most suspects are still in on our custody for proper investigations and trials. Your name and email has been found in our list of those that has been defrauded through some of these media, Account/Western union money transfer and others, Money Gram. The western union money transfer that has been sent so far to some countries like London Ghana, Togo Spain, South Africa and United States, Nigeria etc are being received in Nigeria by these scammers in the name of having transaction that you do not know about.
From all indication, after due investigation as regards to this very matter, it came to the attention of the minister, federal ministry of finance and the accountant general of the federation that there is no cent existing on your favor as one of the legitimate beneficiary of the contract/inheritance amount you are struggling all this while to claim, but due to the dubious interest of some top officials they short listed your name as one of the approved beneficiaries that have not been paid, well my dear, I want you to understand that your name is not short listed in any contractual/inheritance payment and you are not going to receive any money as regards to this subject, it all forged in order to extort money from you by some officials that derive joy from doing so.
Meanwhile, I have good news for you, the only place your name appeared as one of the legal beneficiary of any money in our list which bears your name, is as one of the scam affected persons to be compensated with the total sum of Nine Hundred Thousand Euros ($900 000 00) which incidentally came as a result of your involvement in dealing with some people that claims to have some huge amount of money for you which I must say is a very big lie.
I have met with New President GoodLuck Jonathan of Nigeria who claimed that he has been trying his best to make sure you receive your fund in your account. This is part of the resolution that was deliberated on when he visited America to see President Barrack Obama shortly before he took over still as the vice on 10th of April 2010, and immediately he took over the presidential position on May 6th 2010 he repeated the visit. An instruction has been giving by the UN Secretary General Mr. Ban Ki-Moon that in no account should any money be paid to an individual through any means without a proper investigation. The only fee you will pay in other for you to receive your fund is the UN Notarization fee which the “UN Bill of Right” certificate will be issued to you that will supersede any injunction whatsoever.
We have our agents in the bank all round the World with proper security to checkmate these scammers and any bank that goes contrary to our instruction will stand the risk of losing its certificate of accreditation. If this is true about you, do not border much because it is time for you to regain what you have lost .This wonderful compensation program was introduced by the New President GoodLuck Jonathan and the World Bank.
