OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY. THE HONOURABLE, GOVERNOR OF CBN. TINUBU SQUARE, LAGOS- NIGERIA. PRIVATE EMAIL : email@example.com OFFICE PHONE: +234-703-9599-107 Our Ref: CBN/OHG/OXD1/2006 You're Ref: TELEX: CENBANK. PAYMENT FILE: CBN/BEN/06. Dear Benefficiary, Definitely I know that this letter will be a surprising one to you.Firstly, I will like to introduce myself formally as Dr Mallam Sanusi Lamido, The new Governor of the Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN). You are been officially contacted by me today because your Inheritance Funds were re-deposited into the "Federal Suspense Account" of CBN last week, because you did not forward your Claim as the Right beneficiary According to the formal Governor Prof. Charles Soludo. Well known to all, The Central Bank Of Nigeria is the mother Bank of all commercial Banks here in Nigeria. We had strange visitors who came to the Bank for the claim of your inheritance fund. Really i had to ask them why they came to see me in person and they said that they were here to collect the Inheritance Bill valued at Millions Of United States Dollars which rightfully belongs to you,on your behalf. At this development I asked them who authorized them to come down to Nigeria for the Collection of this Payment and they told me that you asked them to come and collect this Funds on your Behalf. In fact this was the biggest surprise of it kind that this Bank have ever had so far, because your Inheritance Funds is still in the "Federal Suspense account" of CBN, yet you sent these men to come and collect this Funds on your behalf without notifying us (CBN)? We in this Bank do not understand why you sent these men to come and Collect your Funds on your behalf. If actually you want them to help you collect your Inheritance Bill Sum, at least you should have Contacted our customer care department or myself the Governor of this Bank direct. They actually tendered some Vital Documents which Proved that you actually sent them for the Collection of this Funds. Honestly, it really baffles me that you took such decision without our consent. Here are the Documents which they tendered to this Bank: 1. LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION. 2. HIGH COURT INJUCTION. 3. ORDER TO RELEASE. 4. TRANSFER PAYMENT SLIP Finally, I told them to come back next week and they promised to come back.As the Governor of this Noble Bank,I was supposed to Release this funds to them but refused to do so because we wanted to hear from you first. Due to the Nature of my job, I will not want to make any mistake in releasing these Funds to anyone except you whom is the recognized and Bonafide beneficiary to this Funds. Kindly clearify us on this issue before we make this Payment to these foreigners whom came on your behalf. Contact me on private email address for details at: firstname.lastname@example.org OFFICIALLY SIGNED. DR.MALLAM SANUSI LAMIDO. GOVERNOR, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA +234-703-9599-107
