He explained that when the payment method chosen by the Federal Government was said to be risky and not advisable, also you were reportedly said to have doubted the delivery of the box containing your money. Upon receipt of your details, i went through your informations forwarded to me. Know that an account has been opened in your name. This new account was opened solely for the transfer of the $12 Million Dollars. To transfer your money, apply for your Transfer Code by sending us a mail with subject: Transfer Code Application. Once a Transfer Code is alloted to you, a confirmation message will be sent to you from this Department, then with your digital phone you can dial our Online Bank Telephone: +234-802-240-9821, once you get through to our customer care representative, you will be asked a few questions and upon successful completion of giving correct information as on file, your account will be credited immediately with $12 Million Dollars which is the payment we were instructed to pay to you y Spring Bank (Nigeria) Plc.
