Our Ref: LBB/IRD/CBX/021/08 RE: IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF YOUR OVERDUE FUND After a joint meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the senate Committee on Foreign Debts reconciliation and the Presidential Payment and Implementation Panel on Contract/ inheritance funds under Category, which was addressed and headed by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar'Adua (GCFR). It became imperative to contact you on the subject matter. This meeting was initiated as part of the recent image laundering scheme of the federal government of Nigeria. During the meeting, so many negative reports were tabled on behalf of our numerous contractors and foreign personnels on how unfairly they have been treated and extorted by some corrupt officials who were vested with the authority to pay them their entitlements. The most annoying and irritating aspect of it all is that they could not effect payment to these foreign beneficiaries after subjecting them to so much stress and trauma. To this regards, this office has been given the SOLE authority by the President and Commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to handle and release all contract/ inheritance funds. You are therefore advised NOT to contact ANY OTHER OFFICE to avoid further complications in your payment file. Every arrangement for the remittance of your overdue funds payment of US $18M (Eighteen Million US Dollar) has been concluded and the funds will be released to you within 5 banking days of your response. Please reconfirm the information below to enable this office proceed and finalize your funds remittance without further delays: 1) Your Full Name 2) Fax and Mobile # 3) Home/ Office Address 4) Profession and Age You are to contact this office immediately on the receipt of this e-mail message. I apologize on behalf of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for the delay in your payment and promise you that it will never repeat itself again as we are into our new government. Yours Faithfully, JOHN ONYIA. EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.
