Attn: Dear Valued Beneficiary,

The Economic & Financial Crimes Commission EFCC and the Federal Bureau of Investigation is 
conducting an investigation to worldwide fraud practices that are known as "Advance fee-fraud" or 
"419-fraud". This unit is saddled with the responsibility to check, probe and investigate cases 
that center on abuse of office, diversion of public funds and property, mismanagement and stealing 
of public funds at the Federal, States and Local Government levels. It also checks the commission 
of economic and financial crimes involving officers in Ministries, Parastatals and designated 
Government agencies

I am (Chief Mrs. Farida Waziri) the chairperson of The Economic & Financial Crime Commission 
(EFCC). We are contacting you because your Payment File is the very first File here on our Payment 
Gazette and we found out that you are already in contact with some impersonators who claim to be 
government officials in pretext to extort illegitimate fund from you.

At the meantime, If you have had contact with suspects from United Kingdom (UK), The Netherlands, 
Nigeria, Benin Republic or any African Country and have fallen victim to this fraud, we urge you 
not to send any more money. We would appreciate if you would cooperate in our investigation by 
sending us a written report with the following information in the format shown below:

I, hereby officially report a case of fraud to the Nigeria Financial Crimes Investigation 
Please give a chronological overview of your case, including the following aspects:

- Make a list of all contacts you have had with those suspects you have paid money and the other 
parties involved (as much as possible with date, time, by phone, fax or e-mail?)
- Have you ever met one or more of the suspects in person? - If so, could you recognise them again?
- Please state if you have made any payments, and if so, why? If possible make a list of all 
payments made, stating the amount, the date, the beneficiary and the method of payment (cash, 
direct deposit, Western Union) etc.
-Also note the information you have about the banks you have been dealing with and the name of 
person(s) posing to be the payment officer.

The above needed information will officially enable us to carry out our investigation, apprehend 
and prosecute the culprits and recover all money(s) you lost to them, and as well facilitate the 
prompt instruction to effect your real contract fund into your account.

Note that this Memorandum is to notify you that your long awaited fund is due for transfer, and you 
also have to be aware that your valued fund can be transfered only by the Nation's Apex Bank 
"Central Bank of Nigeria" CBN. Your fund will be drawn from the Nation's initial Deposit Account 
with Central Bank of Nigeria. Please state that your statement and the information contained within 
can be used in a federal procedure against the suspect. Also state that if you claim back from the 
suspect all the money that you paid.

You need to state that you have filled this report truthfully. Do not forget to sign it. Send this 
report and all documents you have received or sent and all confirmations of receipt. Also include a 
list of all documents sent in your report.

Finally, you are advised to take advantage of this service. With the EFCC’s Transactions Clearing 
Platform, we will be proud to say that only a person who wants to be defrauded by scammers will be 
so defrauded as a result of ignoring the service we are providing; but with your cooperation, we 
are sure to bring your payment to a quick conclusion.

Please, govern yourself accordingly.

Best Regards,

Chief Mrs. Farida Mzamber Waziri (AIG rtd.)
