UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC. 36 BROAD STREET, MARINA LAGOS, NIGERIA TELEGRAM: UNION BROAD BRANCH Email-contact: email@example.com Tel : 234-80-2232-8330 RE: PAYMENT ON ACCRUED INTEREST OF US$3.1M Attn: SIR or MADAM I am REV FRANK JOHNSON, the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR and Head of Swift Transfer Unit of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, Lagos-Nigeria. Sometime ago, in our bank your contract amount of Us$8.500,000,00,was brought to our bank from Nigerian Apex Bank, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (C.B.N) and after some period, this money was taken back to the Federal Government treasury. For the period of time this money was in our bank, it generated an interest of US$ 1.5 Million, which we are about to be pay to you. For your information and advice, you need to hasten up to pick this Fund because from time to time the C.B.N auditors do come to our bank to cross-check our files and our financial update, the earlier you comply with the demands of the delivery of the fund, the faster the action, because the CBN officials wants the accrued interest to be paid to them but we refused, so when they find out that this interest fund is still in our bank they will want to call back the money to the Federal Government treasury. What we need from you now is any form of your identification for example; your international passport or youўre drivers license, then your telephone and fax number for easy communication. For your information you have to stop any further dealing with any body until you receive this fund in your account. And I will also advice you to stop chasseing your contract fund for now because none of this people can get your contract fund to you. As soon as you receive your interest fund I will personally direct you on how you can receive your contract fund with out much protocol. As a matter of fact we donўt have enough time to waste since we have wasted time in contacting our respective customers, so try and comply with the entire necessary requirement for remittance. Yours Sincerely, REV FRANK JOHNSON UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC. INTERNATIONAL REMMITANCE DEPT Email-contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 234-80-2232-8330
