Dear Sir/MadamI am REV. STEVEN JONES, the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR and Head of Swift Transfer Unit of UnionBank Nigeria Plc., Lagos-NigeriaSometime ago, in our bank your money was brought to ourbank from Nigerian Apex Bank, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (C.B.N) and after some period, thismoney was taken back to the Federal Government treasury. For the period of time this moneywas in our bank, it generated an interest of US$ 3.1 Million, which we are about to be payto you.For your information and advice, you need to hasten up to pick this Fund because from timeto time the C.B.N auditors do come to our bank to cross-check our files and our financialupdate, the earlier you comply with the demands of the delivery of the fund, the faster theaction, because the CBN officials wants the accrued interest to be paid to them but werefused, so when they find out that this interest fund is still in our bank they will wantto call back the money to the Federal Government treasury.What we need from you now is any form of your identification for example;your internationalpassport or you’re drivers license, then your telephone and fax number for easycommunication and your address. For your information you have to stop any further dealing with any bodyuntil you receive this fund in your account. And I will also advice you to stop chasseingyour contract/inheritance fund for now because none of this people can get fund to you. Assoon as you receive your interest fund I will personally direct you on how you can receiveyour contract/inheritance fund with out much protocol.As a matter of fact we don’t have enough time to waste since we have wasted time incontacting our respective customers, so try and comply with the entire necessaryrequirement for remittance.Contact me on ,Email email@example.com expecting yourimmediately response.
