Attn: Concerned Beneficiaries!

I am Prof Dora Nkem Akunyili, Minister of Information and Communication, My office monitors and 
controls the affairs of all banks and financial institutions in Nigeria concerned with foreign 
contract payments.

I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both at 
the local and international levels in line with the IMF foreign remittance policy on foreign 
contract debt settlement. I have list of funds, which could not be transferred into some nominated 
foreign bank accounts as these funds have been identified either as ghost contractor payment, 
unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced sum etc, while others were returns payable to particitipants 
of a legitimately executed contract in Nigeria years back.

Your name was among the list of contractors/beneficiaries expecting funds to be
transferred into their account for long, on this note, I wish to have a deal with you as regards to 
your unpaid contract funds.

I have your file before me and i hope your data's are correct and un-altered, but to avoid mistakes 
during funds transfer process, i strongly request you to reconfirm it again. I have the powers to 
declare these surplus/unpaid contract funds as unclaimed deposits which will later be credited into 
the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Account.

I took the decision 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 payment reports /expenditures 
and audited reports of revenues by my ministry with immediate effect. Among several others, I have 
decided to remit your executed contract sum, valued US$11,500,000 following the condition that we 
have deal/agreement together which will enable me to execute this task legally.


1. The sum of USD$5M only will be paid into an account I will provide you after you have confirmed 
the transfer of your sum into your account by telegraphic Transfer (T/T), confirmable in 5 working 

2. This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be strictly by email/ 
telephone, for security purposes.

3. There would be no third party as most problems associated with your funds release in recent 
times were caused by your agents and other representatives.

If you AGREE with my conditions, l will advise you on what to do immediately and the transfer will 
commence without any delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to 
meet the three days mandate given by the senate committee.

I hope you don't reject this conditions and have your long overdue funds transferred?

Waiting for your immediate response.

Prof Dora Nkem Akunyili
Minister of Information and Communication
Federal Republic of Nigeria
