Dear Sir, I am Mr. Michael Lafon Citizen of Ghana, a Computer Analyst with World Bank/Central Bank of Nigeria. I am 36 years old, just started work with Central Bank of Nigeria. (C.B.N.) I came across your payment file which was marked X and your fund release Hard Disk painted RED, I took my time to study it and found out that you have really attempted to receive it but the fund has not been release to you. The most annoying thing is that the directors and top officials of this nation cannot tell you the truth that on no account will they ever release the fund to you; instead they let you spend money unnecessarily. I swear with my life that I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund to you if you can certify me of my security and how I can run away from this Nigeria if I do this for you, I cannot run back to Ghana as they have all my information in Ghana, and if I don't run away from this country after I made the transfer to your bank account, I will be seriously in trouble and my life will be in danger The only thing I will need to release this fund is a special HARD DISK, we call it HD120 GIG. I will buy two of it, recopy your information, destroy the previous one, and punch the computer to reflect in your bank account within 24 banking hours. I will clean up the tracer and destroy your file, after which I will run away from here Nigeria to meet with you in your country if you are interested. But you must assure me the absolute confidentiality of this deal before I can do any further. Do get in touch with me immediately. For phone conversation, please call me on +234-18228628 You should reconfirm your current information as follows, Your Full Names: Current Home Address: Current Telephone Numbers for easy communication: Active Bank Details where you want the fund to be transferred into: Regards, Mr. Michael Lafon Computer Analyst World Bank/Central Bank of Nigeria
