Greetings, It's my pleasure to notify you that after the unfortunate death of President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua the country is in deep mourning and the Acting President has given a directive on all payment by the Federal Government as there has been discovery of unusual request for payment purportedly signed and approved by the late President. Having reconciled the Government Account for 2009 it was discovered that your payment was actually approved before now but due to some bureaucratic bottleneck and corrupt practices by some officials your payment is still pending and this is part of the fund some of these officials are trying to divert for their personal gain. The World Bank Group cum International Monetary Fund has offered to help the Country redeem its name during this period of National needs and our case is more pathetic considering the Economic Meltdown which most Country is just recovering from and there is no Country that is willing to see its resources been wasted or put in the hands of few cabals and most members countries of the World Bank are no more willing to allow the world resources to be wasted on third world Countries. The World Bank Group has therefore released a letter clearing the Grant earlier suspended because the Previous Administration was not using the fund judiciously and the World Bank local representative will be part of the payment supervising team to ensure beneficiaries like you receive their fund. Therefore the Government has approved $7 Million (Seven Million USD) of your outstanding payment and will be released into your designated Account within 48hrs directly from National Bank, Abuja through their corresponding Bank in Europe. You have been placed on a priority payment status due to the delay and setback you suffered in the past and you are directed to forward the Banking details of where you will want the fund to be sent and this should include the Bank Name, Account No., Routing number or Swift Code and also your full name and address. The payment will be by Wire Transfer so make sure there is no error on the details you are sending, once I receive the details it shall be forwarded to the paying Bank that will make the transfer and a copy of the transfer receipt will be sent to you. For confidentiality purpose, my office will take the initiative of contacting you with regular updates for proper monitoring of your transaction to avoid the mistakes of the past where some beneficiaries suffered unjustly because they were ignorant of the payment procedures and they end up loosing their funds. Since your name and details was placed on the notice board, you may have contacted by impostors claiminhg to be in-charge of your payment. Be advised that only the Finance Ministry is responsible for your payment. You can email or call my direct line. I shall not tolerate those lackadaisical attitudes exhibited by some beneficiary under my predecessor. This is my direct line and should NOT be given to a third party as I restrict calls that come to this line. Please quote the Code: Crystal Clear on your correspondence for Pass Identification. Congratulations in advance. Dr. Aganga Olusegun Finance Minister FRN.
