Subject: Attention: Beneficiary,


This email with the subject "Attention: Beneficiary," was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 04 Aug 2010 05:19:54 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was "MR. KEHINDE LAWANSON"<>, although it may have been spoofed.


This letter is written to you in order to change your life from today. I am Mr. Kehinde Lawanson 
the Director, International Remittance Department of this Bank, my Boss, Mr.Stephen Olabisi 
Onasanya, the Managing Director/CEO of this bank is now on compulsory leave and all power have been 
vested on me to make all international payments.

Also, due to reported cases of corrupt practices in other Nigeria Banks, the Federal Government and 
the PAY MASTER GENERAL OF NIGERIA has revoked/canceled all power vested on those banks and has 
appointed our bank (First Bank of Nigeria) to make all foreign payments.

Be informed that the Federal Government have approved the release of your payment of US$16m, I want 
to help you pull out this fund to your bank account using the easiest and the quickest method, 
which have not been made known to you before. By this method, you will open a domiciliary/online 
account with this bank ( First Bank of Nigeria), your fund would be lodged into this domiciliary 
account and your fund will be paid in directly to any bank of your choice in your country. After 
the transfer, you will confirm the fund in your bank account within 2hours the same day. No Cost of 
Transfer (COT) and no stoppage from any Government departments as the transfer will be done within 
the bank alone and it is very safe.

The method which was introduced to you before is the Telegraphic Transfer (TT) for which 
confirmation was 48hrs, because of the time factor, petitions could come from various organizations 
stopping your payment and asking you to pay huge fee which would be difficult for you to pay so 
that they can benefit from the huge interest your fund generates while still in the Bank. This 
method is not safe for you because it is not done within the bank alone as information of the 
payment would be sent to the Central Control Unit (CCU) of the Federal Ministry of Finance and 
office of the Accountant General of the Federation.

As a good Christian, I have nothing to gain by keeping your fund, I want to assist you receive your 
fund before my boss resumes office. You have to follow up and work with me now, so keep this very 
confidential because of fraudsters and impostors who go about presenting various bank accounts in 
order to divert another beneficiary's fund. Confirm to me through this e-mail address, your 
present/valid account co-ordinates and amount to be claimed so that I do not transfer your fund to 
the wrong Bank Account.

Awaiting your quick response.

Yours truly,
