Good Day,
How are you and your entire family, We The Federal bureau of
investigation (FBI) Washington, D.C in conjunction with some other relevant
Investigations Agencies here in the United states of America have recently
been informed through our Global intelligence monitoring network that you
presently have a transaction going on with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
as regard to your over-due contract payment which was fully endorsed in your
favor accordingly. For security reasons it is against our protocol of
operation to release our security numbers to clients, we the F.B.I have
purposely created.
It might interest you to know that we have taken out time in screening
through this project as stipulated on our protocol of operation and have
finally confirmed that your contract payment is 100% genuine from all facets
and of which you have the lawful right to claim your fund without any further
delay. Having said all this, we will further advise that you go ahead in
dealing with the Central Bank office accordingly as we will be monitoring all
their services with you as well as your correspondence at all level. In
addition, also be informed that we recently had a meeting with the Executive
Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Senior Transfer officer and
Fund release to Beneficiaries along with some of the top officials of the
ministry regarding your case and they made us to understand that your file has
been held in abase depending on when you personally come for the claim.
They also told us that the only problem they are facing right now is that some
unscrupulous element are using this project as an avenue to scam innocent
people off their hard earned money by impersonating the Executive Governor and
the Central Bank office. I will use this opportunity to WARN you against some
hoodlums who are impersonating my office and other government agencies for the
purpose of extorting money from innocent CITIZENS like you. Be very vigilant
and always forward  to my office, any messages sent to you before replying to
them so that we can confirm if its genuine or not. We are poised to taking
this precaution so as make sure you don't fall victim to those miscreants who
are claiming to be who they are not.
We were also made to understand that a Lady with name (Mrs. Barbara McCray
from TEXAS) has already contacted them and also presented to them all the
necessary documentations evidencing your claim purported to have been signed
personally by you prior to the release of your contract fund valued at about
US$10,000,000.00 (Ten Million united states dollars),but the Central Bank
office did the wise thing by insisting on hearing from you personally before
they go ahead on wiring your fund to the Bank information which was forwarded
to them by the above named Lady so that the main reason why they contacted us
so as to assist them in making the investigations.
We recently had a meeting with the Executive Governor, Central Bank office
prior to your case and they presented to us the real official contact
information of the genuine Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) of which we have
enclosed below for your observation and reference.
                Central Business District,
                Cadastral Zone,
                Abuja , Federal Capital Territory ,
                Nigeria .
In your best interest, any message that doesn't come from the above  official
email address and phone numbers should not be replied to and should be
disregarded accordingly for security reasons. The reason is because we
received a fax today from the Central Bank office, stating that they have
recently been informed through their underground monitoring unit that some
hoodlums are contacting you claiming to be from the central bank of Nigeria,
just to collect money from you for no just course. Although,  We have started
our investigation on how to get this hoodlums and as well bring them to book
and note that any  information you send to us, will go along way in helping us
track this fraudsters down. To this effect, we will like you to forward to us
any of their contact information so as to enable us forward copy to all the
relevant security agencies.
Ensure you follow all their procedure as may be required by them as that will
further help hasten up the whole process as regard to the urgent release of
your fund to you as instructed. Also have in mind that the Central Bank of
Nigeria equally have their own protocol of operation as stipulated on their
banking terms, so delay could be very dangerous. Once again, we will advise
that you contact them with the above email address and make sure you forward
to them all the necessary information which they may require from you prior to
the release of your fund to you accordingly. Once again, we will advise that
you contact the Central Bank office only with the above information as soon as
you can because they have already started sorting our contract payments to
serious clients and your case should not be exempted. This is all I can tell
you for now until you have contacted them as directed.
Should you need any more information in regard to this notification, feel free
to get back to us so that we can brief you more as we are here to guide you
during and after this project have been completely perfected and you have
received your contract fund as stated.
Your urgent respond is highly needed.
Your in Service,
