Urgent and Confidential

Attn: Fund Beneficiary,

First of all, let me introduce myself to you. I am
Dr.William Smith, the personal assistant to the Governor of
the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Chukwuma C. Soludo. I am
a man of conscience who has the fear of God and human

For some years now, your funds that is supposed to be
transferred into your account as a foreign contractor or
next of kin who is entitled to inherit the deceased money
has been delayed base on series of unnecessary reasons. The
funds have not yet been transferred into your account, while
you have been suffering and spending a lot of money on
documents also paid a lot of charges which is demanded from
the people who is helping you to get this funds transferred
into your account but all their efforts has not yielded any

The truth of the matter is that my boss, Prof. Chukwuma C.
Soludo, the Governor of the CBN and some Government
officials deliberately did not allow the money to be
transferred into your account. Maybe for his selfish
interest or he wants the money to yield much interest and he
will use of the interest and get the total sum released to
you after he has made a lot of profit. That has been the
system here in Nigeria and it will last for years. Our old
president has left because he had been an obstacle but we
thank God that we have a new president now and all problems
are solved. This morning, our new president sends us a
written note that all outstanding funds had to be released
to the owners with immediate effect.

Call me immediately. You are a lucky person because on
12th, we have settled with the United States Monetary Fund
Agent also Europe and you will receive your fund in a very
wonderful way. My boss is on leave which started Friday
officially and it will take him one month to resume back to
office and I am the person in charge of any transfer and all
the signatories that will be endorsed before approval of any
fund is transferred out of the country.

I want to use this opportunity to make my own profit, if
you agree that you will give me 5% of the total fund so that
I will take it upon myself and make sure that you will be
among the contractors that will receive their contract funds
in the next day. Upon your acceptance reply to this transfer

I will do all the underground work here in the CBN to make
sure that the funds will be transferred to you through the
appointed paying bank. To crown it all, do not hesitate to
forward immediately to me, your complete contract
information, personal phone, fax numbers, email address
including bank account information where funds will be

You are advised to call me upon receipt of this email. As
soon as I discussed with you, I will make sure that the fund
gets into your account within 24hours and do not let me down
if you receive the fund into your account.

Yours faithfully,

Dr.William Smith.
P/A to the Governor (CBN)
