                        Re: PAYMENT AUTHENTICATION.
I am Mr.Stanley Lawson, working with the Ministry of Petroleum Resources here in Nigeria; my office 
monitors and controls the affairs of all banks and financial institutions in Nigeria concerned with 
foreign contract payments.
I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both on 
the local and international levels in line to foreign contracts Settlement.
I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these 
accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced sum 
I write to present you to the federal government that you are among the people expecting the funds 
to be transferred into their account, on this note; I wish to have a deal with you as regards to 
the unpaid certified contract funds. 
I have every files before me and the data's will be to change to your name to enable you receive 
the fund into your nominated bank account as the beneficiary of the fund's amount $45 Million U.S.D.
As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the Federal Government 
Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits, I have the opportunity to write you based on 
the instructions I received 2 days ago from the Senate Committee on Contract Payments /Foreign 
Debts to submit the List of payment reports / expenditures and audited reports of revenues.
Among several others, I have decided to remit this sum following my idea that we have a 
deal/agreement and I am going to do this legally.
1. You will give me 65% of your contract funds as soon as you confirm it in your designated bank 
account why 35% will be for your assistance.
2. This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be strictly by email / 
telephone, for security purposes.
3. There should be no third parties as most problems associated with your fund release are caused 
by your agents or representative. 
If you AGREE with my conditions, l advise you on what to do immediately and the transfer will 
Commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet 
the three days mandate. 
I hope you don't reject this offer and have the funds transferred.
Waiting for your reply soon only through my private email for now: 
Yours Sincerely.
