I am Hon. 
Dr. Ayomide Griffin, Minister Foreign Affairs Ministry; my office 
monitors and controls the affairs of all banks and financial 
institutions in Nigeria concerned with foreign contract . I am the 
final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving 
within banks both on the local and international levels in line to 
foreign contracts settlement. I have before me list of funds, which 
could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts 
have been identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits and 
ver-invoicedsum etc. Your name was among the people expecting the funds 
to be transferred into their account, on 
this note; I wish to have a 
deal with you as regards to your unpaid funds. I have your file before 
me and hope your data's are correct and un-tampered unless u reconfirms 
it. As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds 
to the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed 
deposits, I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions 
I received 2 days ago from the Senate Committee on Contract Payments / 
Foreign Debts to submit the List of payment reports /expenditures and 
audited reports of revenues.Among several others, I have decided to 
remit your contract sum following my idea that we 
have a 
deal/agreement and I am going to do this legally. 


The sum of USD$5 Million only will be paid into an account I will 
provide you after you have confirmed the transfer of yoursum into your 
account by telegraphic Transfer (T/T), confirmable in 3 working days.2. 
This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be 
strictly by email / telephone, for security purposes.3. There should be 
no third parties as most problem associated with your fund release are 
caused by your agents or representative.If you AGREE with my 
conditions, l advise you on what to do immediately and the transfer 
will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the 
Payment schedule instantly to meet the 
three days mandate.I hope you 
don't reject this offer and have your 
funds transferred.
