REF:- INSTRUCTION TO CREDIT YOUR ACCOUNT WITH YOUR OVERDUE PAYMENT.
This is the second and the last time we will be notifying you about these said funds.
After due vetting and evaluation of your contract/Inheritance file which the Ministry Of Finance Of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Forwarded and contracted with us to see to the immediate release of your overdue payment of thirty million five hundred thousand USD, from their Offshore Account with us. We were meant to understand from our findings that you have been awarded this contract sum as instructed by the Aremican president (Mr. Barack Obama) during his visit to Africa to pay off all the foreign contractors if Africa is to gain his support. We advise that you stop further communication with any correspondence from Nigeria. Some people who may claim to be your representatives in Nigeria will tell you to still go ahead with them. If you do that, it is at your own risk as the power to process and release your payment now rest on this bank.
The only thing required from you is to obtain an Irrevocable Affidavit of Claim from the British Justice Council before transfer approval from United Kingdom government could be granted.
We will direct you on how to obtain the Affidavit so that our bank will effect immediate transfer of your fund into your designated bank account. Should you follow up our directives, your fund will reflect in your account within five Bank working days from the day you obtain this Affidavit. Do not go through anybody again but through this bank if you really want your fund.
Make sure you contact me the moment this letter is received by you either through my office email account below or give me a call on the number below to enable us commence actions on your funds release process without further delay.
Yours In Service,
MR. ANDREW BRUCE
