Re:NEW DIPLOMATIC PAYMENT DELIVERY.
I am aware of several efforts you have committed in receiving your contract payment in Nigeria, all of which failed and had caused you both time and money loss due to the activities of corrupt officials,financial criminals and impersonators who inflitrated the system.
In the light of the above, be informed that the Nigerian Government have floated a new payment strategy in conjuction with INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL EXPERTS to handle all outstanding foreign debts with effect from 26th January,2007 which will effectively take care of all outstanding foreign debt payments that are due for this first quarter payment of the year,2007 of which your name are among of the beneficiary.
The Nigerian Government have earmarked the sum of USD$1.8 BILLION DOLLARS for this purpose.
The new payment strategy excludes Nigerian officials as most of them have been indicted by aiding fraudsters commit their naferious acts,this new policy/reform is to checkmate their activities and to redeem the image of Nigeria that have been dented over years and to safeguard our foreign contractors from being victims of the manipulative and extortionary tendencies of Nigerian officials.
In this new Payment strategy, a lot of inputs/reforms have been put in place to remove bottlenecks that previously marred foreign debt payments in Nigeria.
In line with this new dispensation, a fresh foreign exchange allocation covering the total contract amount owed you has been made available for shipment and delivery to your doorstep in accordance with the new Payment Strategy for this financial period, Note,we have appointed some credible firms from CANADA AND EUROPE, who will get the funds legalised prior to shipment and delivery to your house with your address.
The reason why we have decided to ship and deliver the funds in trunk boxes is that we have realised that the major problem hampering the transfer of your funds to your account is firstly man-made,corrupt officials in the system of things here and secondly the lack of proper legalization of the funds, which makes it impossible for the wire transfer to successfully scale through the United Nations conditionalities for international fund transfers particularly as required to guard against MONEY LAUNDERING.
As you may agree with me, the process of Legalising foreign debts are usually techincal and complicated,especially when it involved huge sum of money. This is the major reasons why you have not been successful in receiving your contract payment. To over come these technical problems, we have decided to ship and deliver the funds to your doorstep through a diplomat as a lasting solution.
Note that the nominated foreign personels are credible and I can assure you that you will enjoy the benefit of their services, We will pay for the shipment, but you will pay for the clearing of the fund at your Airport on the arrival of the diplomat in your country. The foreign personels involvement will among other things reduce the burden on you,guide against you interacting with Nigerian officials most of whom are the actual impediments to your contract payment.
However, before giving you further details, I must first of all receive your reply acknowledging the receipt of this all important message and furnish me with complete information of your contract particulars,telephone and fax in other to tally with our data.
This message is in furtherance of the first mail you sent me today if you permitted and mandated me for a change of account by your representatives as contented in the first mail of today as submiited by an AMERICA, MR. SMITH DOUGLAS and acclaimed representatives working on your payment.
YOURS FAITHFULLY ,
DR. CHRIS DIBIAJ
