Dear Sir/Madam,

The Federal Government of Nigeria through provisions in Section 419 of
the Criminal Code came up with punitive measures to deter and punish
offenders.The Advance Fee Fraud section deal mainly with cases of
advance fee fraud(commonly called 419) such as obtaining by false
pretence through different fraudulent schemes e.g. contract scam,
inheritance scam, job scam, loan scam, lottery award scam, “wash wash”
scam (money washing scam), marriage scam. Immigration scam,
counterfeiting and religious scam. It also investigates cyber crime

This is to officially announce to you that some scam Syndicates were
apprehended in Nigeria,South Africa and United Kingdom few days ago
and after several interrogations and tortures your details were among
those mentioned by some of the scam Syndicates as one of the victims
of their operations.

After proper investigations and research at Western Union Money
Transfer and Money Gram office to know if you have truly sent money to
the scam
Syndicates through Western Union Money Transfer or Money Gram, your
name was found in their central database system amongst those that
have sent money to these scammers.This proves that you have truly been
swindled by those unscrupulous persons by sending money to them in the
course of getting one fund or the other that is not real.

Right now we are working hand in hand with Western Union and Interpol
to track every fraudsters down, do not respond to their e-mails,
letters and phone calls any longer they are scammers and you should be
very careful to avoid being a victim to fraudsters any longer because
they have nothing to offer you but to rip-off what you have worked
hard to earn.

In this regard a meeting was held between the Board of Directors of
The I.M.F and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and as a consequence
of our
investigations it was agreed that the sum of one hundred thousand US
Dollars (US$100,000, 00) should be paid to you out of the funds due to
you by I.M.F.

We have deposited your fund at Western Union Money Transfer agent
location office in Lagos Nigeria. We have submitted your details to
them so that your fund can be transferred to you, but they
re-contacted us that the funds are too large to be transferred via
western union or money gram, so the only option is to transfer these
said amount to you, in form of an INTERNATIONAL ATM CARD, that will
still contain the same amount.This ATM card will be used to withdraw
money from any ATM machine worldwide and your limit is $3000, 00 per

To redeem your fund you are hereby advised to contact the ATM Card
Center via email for the processing of your ATM CARD. Do contact Mr.
Clive Ahmed of the ATM Card Center via his contact details below and
furnish him with your details.

Remember that you are not the only scam victim, we have so many scam
cases in our office but you are lucky to fall among one of the people
that will be getting these compensation funds, so if you feel
reluctant to claim it, we will cancel your name and sign it on the
next scam victim waiting on line to claim his/her compensation funds.
