Good Day,

I am the Head of foreign payment department. I have been 
mandated to inform you about the recent development as in 
payment this money after our board meeting, your case was 
mentioned and we have agreed to pay you without any further 
delay so I would required you to desist from any partner(s); 
associates either abroad or onshore; with respect to this 
ongoing fund transfer. 

The Federal Government has mandated the payment commission 
that all payment that has been overdue and those owed by 
the government would be paid unilaterally to the tune of 
$5m (Five Million U.S Dollars Only).

Therefore all we will pay you now is the  US$5m and the 
rest afterwards. I would like you to employ transparency 
and honesty in this regards because aiding and abetting 
will only keep your payment pending so I will like you to 
confirm the following to avoid any mistake or wrong transfer. 
The total fund belonging to you etc, the requested information 
is to  ensure that no mistake or error is made and it should 
be forwarded in the manner stated below:

Your Full Name:
Your Complete Address:
Direct Telephone Number:
Mobile Number:

Barr. David Obi
