I am Mr. Williams Anyaoku, a computer scientist with Central Bank of Nigeria. I am 47 years old, just started work with the C.B.N. I came across your payment file which is marked X and your released disk painted RED. I took time to study it and found out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees and certificates but the fund has not yet been transferred to you.

The most annoying thing is that, they cannot tell you the truths that on no account will they ever release the fund to you; instead they let you spend more money unnecessary. I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund if you can certify me of my security, and how I can run away from Nigeria because if I make this transfer and stay here, I will be seriously in trouble and my life will be in danger.

Please this is like a mafia setting in Nigeria; you may not understand it because you are not a Nigerian. The only thing I will use to transfer this fund is a special HARD DISK, we call it HD80.1.i GIG USB. I will need two of it, I will use one to recopy your cheque/draft informationâs, destroy the previous one, punch the computer to reflect in your account  within 24 banking hours.

I will clean up the tracer and destroy your file so that no one will trace how I did the transfer, after which I will run away from Nigeria to meet you. If you are interested, do get in touch with me on my Email: You should send to me your contact Tel/Fax numbers for easy communication and also re-confirm to me your informationâs and address details. So that there won't be any mistake.

Mr. Williams Anyaugo
