ECT: STATUTORY ANOMALIES ON YOUR FUND TRANSFER FROM: MR J. M. FOGOSO GUEDES Dear Beneficiary, Firstly, I wish to introduce myself as a sympathizer of your situation. We are the Comptroller of Fund Movement Terminal and the Director of Statutory Department of Inter Bank Credit Commission. My Department is affiliated to FSA, UN, WORLD BANK, W.A.F. Our Liaison Desk is situated at the West African Terminal 122 of CBN and in Asia at the RESERVE BANK OF AUSTRALIA European Terminal at the DUTCH AUCTION SYSTEM with head office in the New York City attached to the Chase Manhattan Bank, New York, which oversees and inspects the fund movement pre-inspection for CBN and other related ECOWAS member states. Me and my colleagues MR. STEVEN FLOYD THOMASSON from Northlake, Illinois USA. He is in charge of the West African Terminal. My name is MR J. M. FOGOSO GUEDES BORN IN: LUANA/ANGOLA NATIONALITY: PORTUGUESE. In view of my position as introduced and explained above, I have this privileged information for you out of sympathy to save your fund from a big problem, which will ruin your fund payment at your bank by the USA monitoring agents. THE BACKGROUND OF THIS REASONS: It may interest you to know that fund transfer irregularities of huge sums of money out of Nigeria during the Military junta of the late General Sani Abacha has created suspicion on any movement of large amount, which is to be routed through Nigeria. For this reason, the new Parliament under the leadership of Senator DAVID MARK (New Senate President) has formed a committee on Finance/Economic matters. This Committee was mandated to deliberate on all fund movement above $3,000,000.00 USD and also to recover all suspected funds. Consequently, our organization has been mandated to assist to monitor all fund movement out of Nigeria. The sum of $18 billion dollars has so far been recovered we execute the pre-investigative formalities and all statutory requirements around the world. The purpose is to monitor, pre-inspect, recommend or defer your fund movement or seizure of the fund at your bank or on any other means. Fortunately, our Terminal in New York has been monitoring the routing of your fund for seizure. I became sympathetic with you, Hence, I decided to contact you privately in order to advice you, which will enable you, receive the fund successfully without any seizure or threat on the fund. Therefore, this letter is highly confidential. You are to keep my relationship with you to be highly confidential. If you can follow my directives, I will inform you the only way out for the dispatch of your funds peacefully without any seizure by either your bank or the US Monitoring Agencies. Failure to follow my directives and instructions will in no way help you because the monitoring unit will adopt the motion of seizure of the funds. The September 11 2001 bombing of the WTC in USA has compelled a strict monitoring and checks on all huge sums of money around the globe. For this reason, the security Network in the USA has requested us here in Nigeria to investigate your fund, which has been routed for transfer according to the following: 1. The real source of your fund. 2. Your funds background on Foreign Bills of entries. In pursuit of that, I discovered so many anomalies, which may create the security network for seizure of your fund. And your bank may start asking questions, which may even put the bank into a big problem for suspicion by the USA Security Network for affiliating with terrorism. Based on the above ascertain and for me to help you, the following are my conditions: 1. You must keep my relationship with you highly confidential. 2. You must be willing to act fast on any information, directives and advice from me. Exposing of this information will compel me to do the right report and in that case, it means the forfeiture of the funds. If you work with me, the method in your getting these funds is by cash delivery which I and MR.STEVEN FLOYD THOMASSON will deliver to you at your address. Further details on this arrangement will be furnished you as soon as I have received your comments to carry on. By then, I will be in a good stead to explain to you more on how to carry out the mission. You can contact me on e-mail: email@example.com and as soon as I receive your response, I will tell you more on the way forward and I will also inform you about our percentage that you will be required to give us as soon as we have handed over the funds to you at your designated address. Therefore, further details will be furnished to you and my identity will be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your reply. Yours Sincerely, MR J. M. FOGOSO GUEDES
