36 BROAD STREET, MARINA LAGOS, NIGERIA,TELEGRAM: UNION BROAD BRANCH BIG, STRONG, RELIABLE +234-705-584-6173 email@example.com Attn: Beneficiary RE: PAYMENT ON ACCRUED INTEREST OF US$6.1M I am REV. MARK DURU, the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR and Head of Swift Transfer Unit of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc. Lagos-Nigeria Sometime ago, in our bank your contract money was brought to our bank from Nigerian Apex Bank,CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (C.B.N) and after some period, this money was taken back to the FederalGovernment treasury. For the period of time this money was in our bank, it generated an interest of US$ 6.1 Million, which we are about to be pay to you via KTT wire transfer to your account. 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 your drivers license, then your telephone and fax number for easy communication with your account details. As a matter of fact we don't 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. Contact me on our official telephone expecting your immediately response. Yours Sincerely, REV MARK DURU DIRECTOR, UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC.
