Attn: Beneficiary, It is our pleasure to reach you after your unsuccessful attempt receive your funds for over so many years. Following the decision policy of the Government last week. The Federal Government has mandated the Ministry of Finance to pay all the affected Beneficiaries whose payments has been lingering over the past ten years till date. The Government decided to pay all the affected beneficiaries the sum of US$1.5M each as the first installment payment via Cashier's cheque or wire transfer as the client may choose. This method was adopted to evade unnecessary delays from the Ministry of Finance and some other Governmental Agencies. It was observed in the course of our investigation which took us to various financial institutions and government agencies/parastatals that your long over due payment has not yet received. Therefore, be categorically informed that if you don’t do away with these unscrupulous elements disguising as top Government officials from London, UK and Nigeria,etc and desist henceforth,all further communication with them, we can authoritatively inform you that the drama can last for decades and your quest to receive your payment will still remain a pipe-dream as they will continue to make more demand for money from you. For your own good,you are advised to stop further dealings with your so called representative(s) or group, as they have nothing to offer since they have no mandate on foreign payments. You are therefore advised to contact the Chairman, Delayed foreign Payment, Rev John Frank and do send him your phone number and your current contact address where you want your CHEQUE to be sent to, via the below e-mail address:(firstname.lastname@example.org) Phone: +234-805-453-4180 So feel free to get in touch with Rev John Frank to send your Cashier's Cheque for onward presentation to your bank, or funds via wire transfer. The Reverend will also send your Compensation Certificate. Best Regards. Anthony Ezeh.
