From the desk of mr. Idrisa abdullahi
director, central computing/monitoring unit
in respect to your expected funds
I am the director of the central computer/monitoring unit f the central bank of Nigeria.
Sometime in the past, your partners approached me through a friend of mine and requested that i should assist them to conclude a money transfer deal. They gave me your information and told me to put them into our computer system in the central computing unit so that it will appear as if you are one of the genuine legal beneficiary that have been cleared for payment.
According to them, they wanted to use this strategy to transfer a huge amount of money which they accumulated through inflated contract awards and abandon next of kin funds/lotto funds and the money has been floating in the cbn since then.
The original beneficiaries have been paid so they wanted to use your information to transfer the surplus out of Nigeria. We agreed that once I do this, they would give me us$1,000,000.00 and give me another us$1,000,000.00 when i release the fund to your account.
When they saw that i have done that and your name has been approved among the list of those to be paid, instead of giving me the agreed deposit, they started avoiding me and resorted to threat. I immediately deleted the transfer code of the fund including your name, address and your banking information and released other queue fund without yours.
They became angry when they saw that their threat did not work and started tipping other officials to get another approval to transfer the money to you without success, I am 100% responsible for the delay and obstructions because of their breach of contract. If you doubt what I have just told you, pay any amount they will ask you to pay now after a short time, they will come up with another reason to pay again and it goes on and on, they are simply wicked and full of lies.
Now, if you want us to work together, these are my condition: -
I. I will have 20% of the money because it is only the two of us left for now.
If this condition is acceptable to you, contact me as soon as possible to let us finalize. But if you are not interested, I advise you to forget the fund as it will be transferred into the federal government of Nigeria consolidated national reserve account.
