Dear valued client,

After a serious thought, I decided to reach you directly and personally.
I am Mr.Francis Okumagba, the General manager Oceanic Bank; my office is
responsible for all wire remittance transaction, credit card and atm
card issuance.I am compelled to contact you directly considering the
situation of your fund in this bank.

I am writing to inform you that the Federal government has instructed
all bank in Benin to return any unclaimed fund and cancel the payment.
I have before me list of funds which is ready to be transferred to Federal
government account and cancel the payment as the government instructed.
We have only three weeks 21days to finalise this and hand everything
over to the government.

In reference to your inheritance fund which is about to transfer to the
federal government account for final instruction. I have a plan to help
you claim the funds so that the government of this country will not cancel
the payment. On my official capacity as the managing director, I have 
decided to help you by using diplomatic courier means to deliver your 
fund to you at any place you want. This is made possible by using 
FedEx Express career diplomat.

To transfer money through telegraphic transfer from west African
banks to some parts of the world following the prevailing dis-honouring
of our remittance instructions and treatment of our credit advice with
gross indifference by most recipient overseas' banks in addition to some
fraudulent activities going on in west Africa which we have already sent
out publications on that effect. In addition, the September 11th 2001 
terrorist attack in the united states and the terror world over has 
influenced the suspicious of high volumes of fund lodgement / transfer 
as terrorist money and as far as this overseas banks attitude continue 
prevailing the remittance can not be effected and the federal government 
may use your fund allotment to meet up other of its pressing financial 

Furthermore, in my concerted efforts to actualize your fund payment with
the convenient time schedule I have negotiated with Fedex manager here
