Dear Beneficiary, I am Mr. Daniel Vosburg, 63 years old and a United States of American citizen, I work with heartwood Furniture Company here in Pennsylvania and my residence is at #875 Gail Place Lancaster Pennsylvania, United States. I am one of the many beneficiaries whose outstanding contract / inheritance fund were delayed for years by the Nigerian government despite the fact that I basically satisfied all the statutory provisions required for the payment of my contract/inheritance fund but the persons handling my payment refused to pay me, not after I have paid over $50,000 trying to get my fund but all to no avail. It was while I was trying to get loan to pay a fresh bill given to me by the officials, that I met a top Nigerian government official and after I have explained my frustration to her, she advised me to travel down to Nigeria with all my inheritance/contract documents. She directed me to meet one Dr. RICHARD MARTINS who she told me was the Controller General of Debt Management Office in the Presidency, which is the officer in charge of processing and payment of all foreign debts in Nigeria. I listened to her advice and when I met Rev. Dr. RICHARD MARTINS on arrival at the Debt Management Office, I was shocked at what he told me. He told me that those people that were contacting me as Government or bank officials through emails and telephone calls were impostors who were only out to defraud me of my hard earn money. He said that I would have lost everything I had to the scammers and yet, I would not have received my fund if I did not locate him. Right there in his office, he brought out a file cabinet, search through the files and brought out my file. He signed on it and thereafter, took me to the paying bank, Ecowas bank of Nigeria PLC and within an hour at the bank, I was paid of my long awaited fund and today, I am a happy person having received my inheritance/contract funds of $300,000,000.00 Moreover, Rev. Dr. RICHARD MARTINS showed me a comprehensive list of other beneficiaries whose payment is still lying in his office waiting to be claimed but who might be ignorant of where to receive their payment. That was how I saw your email address and thought that it will be good to email you and tell you of my experiences and how I was able to receive my fund as well as warned you to stop dealing with any one that might be contacting you regarding your payment because such person is only trying to make money out of you. Unlike me, you don't need to travel to Nigeria before you can receive your payment since you have known the right source. All you need to do is to contact Rev. Dr. RICHARD MARTINS and tell him that you are a friend to Mr. Daniel Vosburg whom you helped to receive her Contract/Inheritance fund and she directed you to contact him so that he can help you to receive your fund just as he had helped me. If you like, you should contact him direct on this information below. Name: Rev. Dr. RICHARD MARTINS. Email: email@example.com Office Address: 14, Yaya Crescent, Apapa Lagos Nigeria. You really have to stop any dealing with any one that is contacting you and telling you that your fund is with him whereas your fund is not with him. He is only taking advantage of you to scam you until you have nothing left. The only money I paid at the bank was $250 USD only to cover the cost of Currency Marginal Fluctuation Difference (CMFD). You have to take note of that. Just contact Rev. Dr.RICHARD MARTINS so that he can help you to receive your fund instead of dealing with those scammers that will be dribbling you around asking for one fee after the other, yet, they will not pay you. Have a nice day and remain Blessed. Mr. Daniel Vosburg Lancaster Pennsylvania, United States
