REASON WHY YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR FUND
After waiting to hear from you or your Nigerian partner for a long time now, I Decided to make this direct approach to you as my new resolution in other not to
Let it be if I have anything in mind against you. I do not know if you have Asked yourself why each time the release of this 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, your Nigerian friend, I mean the people that introduced you to The project approached me through my dear wife who work with the Federal
Ministry of Finance and requested me to assist them conclude a money transfer Deal they had with you. They requested me to assist them by removing the
Original contractor's name, company's name and bank particulars from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) vetting computer and replacing them with your name
And bank details in order to make you appear as the rightful beneficiary of this Fund.
I agreed on condition that he will pay me US$80,000.00 as soon as your name Appears as the beneficiary. I did as agreed and demanded to be paid, but your
Friend started telling me stories; they even told me you promised to send money To me.
Do you know that up till now, I have not received a single cent from him and Have not set my eyes on any of them? Based on their attitude, I decided to
Stop the fund release movement because I cannot be denied of my right in my own Office considering the risk as it might affect my job. Secondly, I know the
Source of the funds that you did not execute any contract with him, 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 In order to conclude this project. Now I am ready to forget the past.
I do not need the US $80.000.00 any longer from you but a good compensation From your mind. I need your assurance that those colleagues will be totally kept
Out of this transaction. I know that none of them is aware of my new approach to You. Stop spending your money unnecessarily to CBN Officers both here and
Overseas because you will not receive this money without my hand in it. I Personally did the work at the beginning and only I can perform it.
Finally, I need your promise that no official of the Central Bank of Nigeria Will be aware of my involvement in this regard because of my position. Now
re-assure me that you will be willing to compensate me and that you will assist My wife to establish a foreign account in your country where my compensation
Will be lodged. Also a TT FUND RELEASE APPROVAL DOCUMENTS will be sent to you For endorsement after which I will remit the money within 48 hours.
I am a man of my word. If you are ready to conclude this business with me, Kindly contact me so that we can have a chat over this issue once and for all.
But if the reverse is the case, do not bother yourself to reach me and forget About this money.
