IRREVOCABLE RELEASE OF YOUR PAYMENT
This is to notify you that your over due inheritance funds has been gazette to be released via key telex transfer (KTT) -direct wire transfer to you or through any of our correspondent bank nominated by the senate committee for foreign over due fund transfer. Meanwhile, a woman came to my office few days ago with a letter, claiming to be your true representative.
There are a lot of people who are interested in confiscating your fund into their personal account because they know too well that you can't be able to come to Nigeria to claim your USD$10.5 Million Approved payment. This person Ms. Janet L. white came to the Central Bank Head office, with some vital documents saying that you sent her to come and get your approved USD$10.5 Million reason she said because you can't fly down to Nigeria your self because of your ill-health and business schedules.
The Federal House of Senate with the Central Bank of Nigeria has gone through the approval papers tendered by your Representative and found out that they are all correct and proves that you are truly the one that sent her to get your fund. Right now, while your fund has not yet been transferred to the account presented by your partner is because "your transfer Reflection pin code is still missing. Why will you send someone to come and get your fund for you without given her the fee for the transfer Reflection pin code? do you think that the United Nations in conjuction with the Government of Nigeria will be foolish enough to release this fund to your representative without first checking if truly you have paid for the transfer Reflection pin code because I can remember very clearly that when I first contacted you about your fund with the government of Nigeria, I told you that all other fees you are required to pay has been waived off by the United Nations
Why I am telling you this is because this woman ( Janet L. White ) will be stranded here in Nigeria because we are not releasing any dime to her without you first sending the transfer Reflection pin code of $750 to her . She came to my office this morning and told me that she has tried calling your line severally and you are not picking her calls and she has dropped voice messages to you which you have not answered, She also said that she wanted to e-mail you but because she has no internet access she can't do that so this is why I said since I have your e-mail address, I decided to e-mail you but I never told her that I have contacted you through e-mail.
Below are the information she provided on where you want your fund to be transferred, so we want you to confirm the information and also send her the transfer Reflection pin code fee of $750 because without it, the transfer into this account will not work out.
Claims name: Janet L. white
