Attn;To Whom it may concern,


After a serious thought i decided to reach you directly and personally because
i do not have any thing against you, but your Nigerian partners.I am the
Director of wire transfer/Telex transfer department of the Central Bank Of
Nigeria,some time in the past your Nigerian partners approached me through a
friend of mine who works with one of the ministries here and requested that i
assist them conclude a money transfer deal.They gave me your name, and bank
particulars and told me to put them into our computing system in the lab so that
it will appear as if you are one of the genuine beneficiary that have been
cleared for payment.

According to them,they wanted to use this strategy to transfer a huge amount of
United States Dollars which they accumulated inheritance funds and the money has
been floating in the CBN since then on your name.We agreed that once i do
this,they would give me US$100,000.00 and give me another US$100,000.00 when i
release the funds to your account.When they saw that i have done it and your
name has been approved among the list of those to be paid,instead of giving me
the agreed deposit of us$100,000.00,they started avoiding me and resorted to
threats.I immediately deleted the transfer code of the funds,which is only known
to me because of my position,and released other contractors funds without
yours.They became angry the more when they saw that their threats did not work,
and started bribing other officials to get another approval to transfer the
money to you without success.I want you to know that i am 100% responsible for
the delay and obstructions because of their breach of contract.If you doubt what
i hav

(1)I will have 20% of the money because it is only the two of us left for now.

(2)You will assist my son to open an account in your country or any other place
of my choice where i will pay in my own share.

(3)As you can see,it will useless and mere waste of time and money if you
continue with any other person,so we will conclude this transaction with utmost
secrecy with the below telephone and email only.

well as your email id.(if any)to facilitate easy communication between you and i
only.If these conditions are acceptable to you,contact me ae as soon as possible
to let us finalize,so that the funds can be released to to your account after
due protocols has been observed. But if you are not interested,i advice you to
forget the funds and stop waisting your time with your so called partners.Here
is my private email ( .
