PAYMENT NOTIFICATION OF YOUR FUNDS.
Definitely, I am sure that the receipt of this email will be of utmost blessing
to you.Firstly, I will like to introduce myself formally; I am, Mr. Michael
Ayodele, the secretary to Prof. Charles Soludo The Executive Governor of The
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
You are been officially contacted by me today because I was instructed to do so
by my boss, kindly note that your Funds were Re-deposited into the
\"Federal Suspense Account\" of the CBN last week, because
you did not forward your Claim as the Right beneficiary. The Central Bank of
Nigeria is the parent Bank of all commercial Banks here in Nigeria.
My boss the Governor, was visited in his office by some Gentlemen today, really
these men were unexpected by him because their visit was impromptu. He had to
ask them why they came to see him in person and they said that they were here
to collect the Inheritance/ contract funds Bill Sum of (US$1.5,000,000:00) $1.5
million which rightfully belongs to you, on your behalf.
At this development He asked them who authorized them to come down to Nigeria
for the Collection of this Payment and they told him that you asked them to
come and collect these Funds on your Behalf. Infact this was the biggest shock
that this Bank has ever received so far because your Inheritance Funds is still
in the \"Federal Suspense Account\" of CBN, yet you sent
men to come and collect this Funds on your behalf without notifying us.
Note that they actually tendered some Vital Documents which proved that you
actually sent them for the Collection of these Funds. Honestly, it really
shocked him that you took such a decision without his consent. Below is list of
the Documents which they tendered to this Bank today:
1. LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION.
2. HIGH COURT INJUCTION.
3. ORDER TO RELEASE.
Actually, these Documents which they tendered to this Noble Bank are a clear
Proof that you sent them to Collect this Funds for you.Finally, He, Prof Soludo
told them to come back tomorrow morning and they promised to come back.As the
Governor of this Noble Bank, he was supposed to Release this Funds to them but
he refused to do so because he wanted to clarify this from you first.
Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this Payment to these foreigners
whom came on your behalf.
Mr. Michael Ayodele.
TO THE GOVERNOR.
