Attn: Sir/Madam, Re: PAYMENT NOTIFICATION... I am Dr.Smith Harry, Director Investigation/Contract Review Department Presidency to monitor and control the affairs of all banks and financial institutions in the country concerned with foreign / local contract payments/inheritance. I have before me in my office list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts owners and these accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced sum etc. So I wish to have this deal with you as regards to the unpaid funds ($21.3m). 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 few days ago from the Senate Committee on Contract Payments / Foreign Debts to submit the List of payments report / expenditures and audited reports of revenues. Among several others, I have decided to remit some contract sum following my idea that we have a deal/agreement with you and I am going to do this legally. MY CONDITIONS 1. The sum of USD$3.5M only will be paid into my account out of the total sum approved. 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 problems associated with the fund release are caused by the agents or representative. If you AGREE with my conditions, l will advise you on what to do next immediately i hear from you and the transfer will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet with the days mandated. I am waiting for your reply soon. Reply to my private E-MAIL; firstname.lastname@example.org Dr.Smith Harry Director Investigation/Contract Review Department Presidency Direct Tel:+2348076742978
