I am Sgt. Jeff Zuma, My office monitors and controls the affairs of all banks and
Financial institutions in Cote d ‘Ivoire concerned with foreign contract payments transactions. I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both on local and international levels in line with foreign contracts settlement.
I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced sum etc. I write to present you to the federal government that you are among the people expecting they funds to be transferred into their account, on this note; I wish to
have a deal with you as regards to the unpaid certified contract funds.
I have every files before me and the data's will be change to your name to enable you receive the fund into your nominated bank account as the beneficiary of the fund's amount $18.2 Million U.S.D. As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of this funds to the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits, I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions I received some days ago from the Senate Committee on Contract Payments /Foreign Debts to submit the List of payment reports / expenditures and audited reports of revenues. Among several others, I have decided to remit this sum following that we have a deal/agreement and is going to be don legally.
1. Sharing is 50 /50% as soon as you confirm it in your designated bank account.
2. This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be strictly by email / telephone, for security purposes.
3. There should be no third parties as most problems associated with fund release are caused by agents or representative.
If you AGREE with my conditions, l advice you on what to do immediately and the transfer will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet up the mandate.
