New Appointed Director
I Am Alahaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi C.B.N" {Director of Operations C.B.N} I am the new appointed Director of Operations in this CBN BANK. I  succeeded PROFF, CHUKWUMA SOLUDU  who is now retired. During the scrutiny exercise on assumption of   office,  I discovered that you have an outstanding  {PAYMENT}  with us. Having gone through your payment file during our routine  scrutiny exercise, I discovered some alterations and discrepancies in  your file. I consulted the Secretary of my predecessor and interrogated  her and she confessed that one Barrister jAMES who claim to be  your Attorney/Legal representative was coming consistently to her with  tips {bribe} to assist him work out modalities to the transfer of your   {PAYMENT} to an account different from your account   as  stated in the claim  application letter you sent to our office.
Based on the above, I invited Barrister jAMES for clarifications on the above subject and when he declined from honoring my invitation, I  contacted the Nigerian Bar Association to report his criminal act and   the  Nigerian Bar Association has now revoked the "Call to Bar" license of  Barrister jAMES as a result of his unlawful act and from henceforth;   the  Nigerian Bar Association does not recognize him as a lawyer.
I have cross-examined your  {PAYMENT FILE}  and have  confirmed that you have virtually fulfilled all obligations and  requirements that make  you legible to receive your   {FUND}. To this effect, I wrote a recommendation letter to our  ASSISTANT.DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA Dr.TUNDE LEMO for the releases of your due funds.
