RE:FINAL NOTIFICATION ON YOUR OVERDUE PAYMENT
Sequel to the payment approval on your long-over due payment and from the information we received from the Presidency in this financial fiscal quarter year in respect of your fund payment, and subsequent delays on your part in filling an application of claim to this office for the remittance / payment of your fund, this
committee here-in wish to intimate you of the availability of fund for the swift payment. Your fund have been approved by the Presidency and is awaiting your claim.
This office wish to bring to your notice, that one Mr John Wheeler who claims to be the your associate /partner and hiscounterpart Barrister. John Igodo, who purported to be your legal representative have presented a POWER OF ATTORNEY, believed to have been signed by you, authorizing Mr John Wheeler to make claim of your fund on your behalf, as you are bed-ridden, very sick and indisposed at the moment.
Is Mr John Wheeler your associate /patner? Did you authorize Mr John Wheeler to make claim on your behalf? I advise you to reach this office immediately as regard these issues raised as per the above clarification.
NOTE: Failure/Delay on your part will give this committee the impression that all Mr John Wheeler said is true and we will not have any alternative than to immediately make remittance of your fund to him and the Federal Government of Nigeria nor this office will/shall not be held liable for any compensation nor apology as you might deem it fit to seek redress in the court of law.
Your prompt clarification will be highly appreciated. You can as well call me on my direct number +234 808 732 7068. 24/7. Please direct all your correspondence to this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mr Dominic Bilbis.
