I am Mr. John Aboh the Director,International Remittance 
Department of this Bank(First Bank Of Nigeria PLC(FBN), 
my Boss, Mr. Jacobs M. Ajekigbe,the Managing Director/CEO 
of this bank is now on compulsory leave and all power 
have been vested on me to make all international payments. 
Also, due to frauds,Negligence,Errors and others 
Transactions by Foreigners about Nigeria image abroad; 
these has prompted the Federal Government to empower only 
our Bank;First Bank of Nigeria PLC(FBN) to Identify the 
owners of the funds yet un-claimed and pay them outright 
with no delay.

Be informed that the Federal Government have approved the 
release of part-payment of US$5.7Million out of your total 
funds,which has been in this bank for many years unclaimed 
because my boss Mr. Jacobs Ajekigbe, collaboration with the 
Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have refused to 
tell you the truth on how to claim your fund this is because 
he has been using the interest accumulated from your fund 
every year to enrich himself without your knowledge. I want 
to help you pull out this fund to your bank account using the 
easiest and the quickest method, which have not been made known 
to you before. By this method, you will open a domiciliary 
account with this bank (First Bank of Nigeria), your fund would 
be lodged into this domiciliary account and your fund will be 
paid in directly to any bank of your choice. After the transfer, 
you will confirm the fund in your bank account within 24hours 
the same day. No Cost of Transfer (COT) and no stoppage from 
any Government departments as the transfer will be done within 
the bank alone and it is very safe. 
The method which was introduced to you before is the Telegraphic 
Transfer (TT) for which confirmation was 48hrs, because of the 
time factor, petitions could come from various organizations 
stopping your payment and asking you to pay huge fee which would 
be difficult for you to pay so that they can benefit from the 
huge interest your fund generates while still in the Bank. This 
method is not safe for you because it is not done within the 
bank alone as information of the payment would be sent to the 
Central Control Unit (CCU) of the Federal Ministry of Finance 
and office of the Accountant General of the Federation. 

Confirm to me through this e-mail address: your:
Personal Information;
Phone and Fax Number;
Banking Information; where your money will be 
paind into. Report in time.

Awaiting your quick response. 
Yours truly,
