This is an official advice from the FBI foreign Remittance / telegraphic dept.,
it has come to our notice that the C.B.N Bank Nigeria district has released
10,500,000.00 US dollars into Citi Bank Of America in your name as the
beneficiary, by inheritance/contract means.

The C.B.N Bank Nigeria knowing fully well that they do not have enough
facilities to effect this payment from the united kingdom to your account, used
what we know as a secret diplomatic transit payment (s.t.d.p) to pay this fund
through wire transfer, they used this means to complete the payment. They are
still, waiting for confirmation from you on the already Transferred funds which
were made in direct transfer so that they can do final crediting to your

Secret diplomatic payments are not made unless the funds are related to
terrorist activities why must your payment be made in secret transfer, if your
transaction is legitimate, if you are not a terrorist, then why did you not
receive the money directly into your account; this is a pure coded, means of
payment? Records which we have had with this method of payment in the past has
always been related to terrorist acts, we do not want you to get into trouble as
soon as these funds reflect in your account in your country, so it is our duty
as a world wide commission to correct this little problem before this fund will
be credited into your personal account.

Due to the increased difficulty and unnecessary security by the American
authorities when funds come from outside of Europe, and the Middle East, the
F.B.I bank commission for Europe has "STOPPED" the transfer on its way
to deliver payment of $10,500,000.00 to debit your reserve account and pay you
through a secured diplomatic transit account (s.d.t.a). We govern and oversee
funds transfer for the World Bank and the rest of the world.

being held in our custody, until you can be able to provide us with a diplomatic
immunity seal of transfer (dist) within 3 days from the world local bank that

funds immediately we receive this legal documents. We have decided to contact
you directly to acquire the proper Verifications and proof  from you to show
