Attn: Dear Beneficiary.
May you remain favored.
I am ( Mr.Ogbonna O. Onovo ) the Inspector General of The Nigeria Police Force (NPF). We received a letter this morning from the Central Bank of Nigeria informing us that, they received your Part Payment of US$750 which you sent through Mr. Allen Smith and Mrs. Cynthia Edward from Canada. These individuals claim to be your representatives, they presented a DEATH CERTIFICATE on your behalf stating that, you are DEAD and before you passed away you instructed them to come and claim your fund for you, as the rightful beneficiary.
Below is the account details which they provided and instructed the Bank to transfer your fund valued US$14,500,000.00 into.
Bank Name: BANK OF AMERICA (BOA)
Bank Address: 2075 S. Victoria Ave Ventura, CA 93003
Bank Phone Number: 800 788 7000
Account Name: Mr. Allen Smith.

As soon as we receive the requested information from you, we are going to forward it to the Bank where you will be directed for your fund to be released to you.
