ATTN: CATEGORY “A” CLIENT TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA After waiting to hear from you or your Partners who introduced you into this transaction for a long time now, I decided to make this direct approach today being the 11th of October, 2009 so as to let you know that I personally do not have any thing in mind against you. I do not know if you have asked yourself why ever since you were introduced into this transaction, you have been going round in circles without getting to the bottom or end of this and also why each time the release of these fund is approved, all of a sudden, the payment will be stopped or one problem or the other will come up. If you have not asked this question or you do not know, this is an opportunity for me to tell you. Some time ago the people that introduced you to the project approached me through an old school mate of mine and requested me to assist them conclude a money transfer deal they had with you, they requested me to assist them by putting in your name as the Original Beneficiary of the funds in question in order to make you appear as the rightful beneficiary of this funds. I agreed on condition that they will pay me US$425,000.00 as soon as your name appears as the beneficiary. I did as agreed and demanded to be paid but your friends started telling me stories. They even told me that you promise to send money to me. Do you know that up till now, I have not received a single cent from them and have not set my eyes on any of them? Based on their attitude, as the new appointed Accountant / Paymaster General of the Federation, I decided to stop the release of the funds through a strong worded petition to the Office of the President of Nigeria himself requesting that his Office should permit me to investigate your file officially prior to fund release because I cannot be denied of my right in my own Office considering the risk as it might affect my job. Secondly, the truth of the matter is that I know personally that you are not the rightful beneficiary of the funds in question, although I am the only person privileged to know this information and it is a fact. Why I am making this clear to you is that I can see that you are still making efforts; spending money in order to conclude this project. My main reason of contacting you is to let you know that I am ready to forget the past, which means I do not need the US$425,000.00 any longer from you or your so called partners but a share of 35% of the total sum. Furthermore, I also need your Finally, I need your assurance in (Black and White Paper) writing that you will be willing to offer me the 35% of the principal Sum, secondly, that you will assist establish a foreign account in your country or the Account base where my share will be lodged and secured. You can contact me immediately on this Phone Number: 234-802-260-0000 – Ext. 06 to enable me furnish you with detailed information on what you are to do from now on. But if the reverse is the case, do not bother yourself to reach me. Respectfully yours, HON. IBRAHIM DANKWAMBO Accountant / Paymaster General of the Federation E-mail: email@example.com …………………………………………………… TOP REVELATION
