DEAR SIR,
AFTER A SERIOUS THOUGHT, I DECIDED TO REACH YOU DIRECTLY AND PERSONALLY BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE 
ANYTHING AGAINST YOU, BUT YOUR NIGERIAN PARTNERS. I AM THE DIRECTOR OF WIRE TRANSFER/TELEX 
DEPARTMENT OF THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA, SOME TIME IN THE PAST YOUR NIGERIAN PARTNERS APPROACHED 
ME THROUGH A FRIEND OF MINE WHO WORKS WITH ONE OF THE MINISTRIES HERE AND REQUESTED THAT I ASSIST 
THEM CONCLUDE A MONEY TRANSFER DEAL.
THEY GAVE ME YOUR NAME, COMPANY’S NAME AND BANK PARTICULARS AND TOLD ME TO PUT THEM INTO OUR 
COMPUTING SYSTEM IN THE LAB SO THAT IT WILL APPEAR AS IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE GENUINE CONTRACTORS 
THAT HAVE BEEN CLEARED FOR PAYMENT. ACCORDING TO THEM, THEY WANTED TO USE THIS STRATEGY TO TRANSFER 
A HUGE AMOUNT OF UNITED STATES DOLLARS WHICH THEY ACCUMULATED THROUGH INFLATED CONTRACT AWARDS AND 
THE MONEY HAS BEEN FLOATING IN THE CBN SINCE THE ORIGINAL CONTRACTORS HAS BEEN PAID SO THEY WANTED 
TO USE YOUR ACCOUNT TO TRANSFER THE SURPLUS OUT OF NIGERIA.
WE AGREED THAT ONCE I DO THIS, THEY WOULD GIVE ME US$100,000.00 AND GIVE ME ANOTHER US$100,000.00 
WHEN I RELEASE THE FUND TO YOUR ACCOUNT. WHEN THEY SAW THAT I HAVE DONE IT AND YOUR NAME HAS BEEN 
APPROVED AMONG THE LIST OF THOSE TO BE PAID, INSTEAD OF GIVING ME THE AGREED DEPOSIT OF 
US$100,000.00, THEY STARTED AVOIDING ME AND RESORTED TO THREATS. I IMMEDIATELY DELETED THE TRANSFER 
CODE OF THE FUND, WHICH IS ONLY KNOWN TO ME BECAUSE OF MY POSITION, AND RELEASED OTHER CONTRACTORS 
FUND WITHOUT YOURS. THEY BECAME ANGRY THE MORE WHEN THEY SAW THAT THEIR THREAT DID NOT WORK, AND 
STARTED BRIBING OTHER OFFICIALS TO GET ANOTHER APPROVAL TO TRANSFER THE MONEY TO YOU WITHOUT 
SUCCESS.
I WANT YOU KNOW THAT I AM 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DELAY AND OBSTRUCTIONS BECAUSE OF THEIR BREACH 
OF CONTRACT. IF YOU DOUBT WHAT I HAVE JUST TOLD YOU, PAY ANY AMOUNT THEY WILL ASK YOU TO PAY NOW, 
AFTER A SHORT TIME THEY WILL COME UP WITH ANOTHER REASON TO PAY AGAIN AND IT GOES ON AND ON. THEY 
ARE SIMPLY WICKED. NOW IF YOU WANT US TO WORK TOGETHER, THESE ARE MY CONDITIONS.
I. I WILL HAVE 40% OF THE MONEY BECAUSE IT IS ONLY THE TWO OF US LEFT FOR NOW.
II. YOU WILL ASSIST MY SON TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT IN YOUR COUNTRY OR ANY OTHER PLACE OF MY CHOICE WHERE 
I WILL PAY IN MY OWN SHARE.
III. AS YOU CAN SEE, IT WILL BE USELESS AND MERE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY IF YOU CONTINUE WITH ANY 
OTHER PERSON, SO WE WILL CONCLUDE THIS TRANSACTION WITH UTMOST SECRECY WITH THE ABOVE TELEPHONE AND 
EMAIL ONLY.
IV. YOU WILL PROVIDE ME WITH YOUR PRIVATE TELEPHONE, MOBILE AND FAX NUMBERS AS WELL AS YOUR EMAIL 
I.D. (IF ANY) TO FACILITATE EASY COMMUNICATION BETWEEN YOU AND I ONLY. IF THESE CONDITIONS ARE 
ACCEPTABLE TO YOU, CONTACT ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO LET US FINALIZE, SO THAT I WILL DIVULGE THE 
PRESENT LOCATION OF THE MONEY TO ENABLE YOU ESTABLISH CONTACT WITH THE FIDUCIARY AGENT IN POSITION 
OF THE FUND.HE WILL RELEASE THE MONEY TO YOUR ACCOUNT AFTER DUE PROTOCOLS HAS BEEN OBSERVED.
BUT IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED, I ADVICE YOU TO FORGET THE FUND AND STOP WAISTING YOUR TIME WITH 
YOUR SO CALLED PARTNERS.
BEST REGARDS.
DR. JAMES VERI
DIRECTOR, WIRE TRANSFER/TELEX DEPT. (CBN)
