Attn: Beneficiary,Payment notification of your funds.

I am Mr. Christian Anderson, the secretary to Prof. Charles Soludo; the executive governor of the 
central bank of Nigeria (C.B.N), the central bank of Nigeria is the parent bank of all commercial 
banks here in Nigeria. I was instructed to initiate contact with you by my boss the executive 
governor of the central bank of Nigeria (C.B.N) on an urgent issue, kindly note that your funds 
were re-called and re-deposited into the "federal suspense account" of the cbn last week, because 
you did not forward your claim as the right beneficiary.

My boss the executive governor of the central bank of Nigeria (C.B.N), was visited in his office by 
three 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 came to collect the 
inheritance/ contract funds bill sum of us$20 million which rightfully belongs to you as shown in 
your file with us, on your behalf and by your authorization.

Note that they actually tendered some vital documents which proved that you actually sent  them for 
the collection of these funds. Below is list of the documents which they tendered to this bank 

1. Letter of administration.
2. High court injunction.
3. Order to release.

Due to the nature of his job, he cannot afford to make any mistake in releasing these funds to 
anyone except you who is the recognized true beneficiary to these funds. Note that my boss has 
asked these men to come back tomorrow so he can verify this fact from you first. 

Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this payment to these foreigners whom came on your 
behalf.Kindly to direct your response to the private email address of my boss, Prof. Charles 
Soludo,the executive governor of the central bank of Nigeria (CBN), below for quicker deliberation 
and response from him on the release of your funds to you. Please remember to indicate a phone 
number he can reach you on in your response.


Note that for security reasons you have been assigned a code/password which is (TT722FGN), please 
note that this code is the reference number for your transfer and it’s being disclosed to you 
alone, guard this jealously and all your email response should carry this code as the subject.

Yours faithfully,
Mr. Christian Anderson.
To the Governor.
