Good Day, Sequel to the series of petitions received from the numerous foreign contractors and Inheritance beneficiaries against the government of Nigeria over their inability to release payment of their outstanding debt after fulfilling their tax and fee obligations. The Government of Nigeria through the President of Goodluck E. Jonathan has mandated us to audit and scrutinize all approved foreign beneficiaries with a view of settling all qualified beneficiaries. We are dedicated in delivering results for the immediate release of your payment by providing excellent and prompt services. Our enviable record over the years has earned us government recognition to Audit, scrutinize and manage all foreign debts. It is therefore at this juncture that, we consider it pertinent to contact you and furnish you with the status of your payment at the moment. I regret to inform you that in the course of scrutinizing your file, we discovered that your erstwhile representative and colleague attempted diverting approved payment of US$7,200,500.00 ( 5.5 Million Euro) to an account in the Bahamas. Our investigation reveals that they lacked the legitimacy and authority to execute their mischievous plans and they ended up using you as genuine pig thereby extorting money from you to bribe their way through. These actions have denied your file from receiving Final Payment Endorsement at the Pay Master and Accountant General's Office. Full name: Telephone: AddFax: Upon receipt of this information, we shall proceed with immediate processing of your documents afresh that will enhance immediate release of your payment without delay. Regards, Dr. Olusegun Aganga Finance Minster
