THE FEDERAL MINISTRY OF FINANCE
FROM THE DESK OF THE HONOURABLE MINISTER
421 ROLLING HIGH COURT OH3 P63
ATTN: ALL THE LISTED BENEFICIARY
IMPORTANT COMPENSATION TO ALL VICTIMS OF FRAUD IN NIGERIA AND WEST AFRICA FROM 2000 TO 2008.
Following the petition we received from United Nations Human Rights Commissions (UNHRC) and the International Arbitration panel over non compensation of advance fee fraud and scam victims in Nigeria. The federal Government of Nigeria has set up a special panel called the (Foreign Debt Reconciliation Panel) (FDRP)that comprises all the financial monitoring body of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, including the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, the economic and financial crime commission (EFCC) and the Minister of finance to work out the modalities for an amicable way of making sure that every victim of fraud in Nigeria is duly compensated as a pre-condition of lifting the economic sanction the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has imposed on Nigeria because of the activities of these fraudsters and also to redeem the good image of Nigeria among the committee of Nations.
It is significant to mention here that the Federal Government of Nigeria is aware of the situation and the battered image, unholy names, international prejudices and bias mind, prospective investors and foreign contractors have for Nigeria, which is detriment to the Nations Economy.
Owing to this development, The Foreign Debt Reconciliation Panel currently sitting in London to carry out this payment has resolved to pay every victim of fraud in Nigeria and west Africa the sum of US$100,000.00 (ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) each. The Federal Government has complied all the names of the victims and has issued a cashier Cheque of US$100,000.00 to each person and is now ready to be sent to every beneficiary by the foreign debt reconciliation panel currently sitting in London.
This is necessary so that the beneficiaries would not be subjected to officers bureaucratic ineptitude and administrative bottleneck of local bankers and their international allies, that always hinder the transfer of fund after the beneficiary have paid all that was ask of him, and provided all the requirements as expected of him and still the transfer will not take place.
On verification of the file sent to my table for approval, your name among several other victims was approved to receive their compensation in this years 2nd quarter foreign debt reconciliation payment schedule. You are therefore advised to contact the paymaster, foreign debt reconciliation panel in London with your full name , official contact address and your private telephone number to enable him dispatch the cheque to you as soon as possible free of charge.
The contact details of the paymaster in London are as follows.

You are therefore advised to stop any form of communication with any other person or organization as the foreign debt reconciliation panel is the only body set up by the federal government to carry out this compensation. The federal government will not be held responsible for your failure to contact the paymaster and receive your compensation fee as this is the last chance you have now to receive this payment. Note that the payment is based on first come first serve and your are advised to be urgent and avail yourself of this given opportunity.
