Good day ,
1. The publicity campaigns by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have proved successful in sensitizing the public and foreign contractors over their unclaimed fund in Central Bank of Nigeria.
Consequently, the reported incidence of upfront payment has declined significantly since the president signed authomatic waiver to all contractors whose payment has delayed more than three (3) years after completion. Nevertheless, there are still some people who have continued to fall victim to solicitations of upfront payment as levies and cost of transfer. This warning is, therefore, specifically intended for the benefit of those misguided people who, in the quest to receive payment quickly are defrauded by fake , local and international impostors.
2). You are again warned in your own interest not to become yet another dupe by consenting to these fraudulent solicitations or schemes. Genuine and prospective investors/ contractors in Nigeria are advised to consult directly, their embassies or High Commissions in Nigeria for proper briefing and advice becuase this vital circular have been circulated to all embassies or High commissions .
3). The CBN and indeed, the Federal Government of Nigeria cannot and should not be held responsible for bogus and shady PAYMENTS transacted with criminal intentions. As a responsible corporate body, the CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA is once again warning all contractors .
