This is to announce to you the receipt of the letter from the Presidency instructing us to remit 
into your account the accrued interest on your contract sum.
You are advised to write a letter of authority addressed to the Foreign Operations Department of 
this bank authorizing the release of your accrued interest of US$ 3.5 MILLION on your contract 
funds with the Government of Nigeria. Be further informed that a refundable account setup fee of 
US$350 is required from you to enable us set up a domiciliary account for you in our bank because 
we cannot make a direct transfer into your account in your country from the Federal Reserve Account 
/Vault of the government. When your domiciliary account is set up, your US$3.5million will be drawn 
from the Reserve Account of the Government into you domiciliary account here and subsequent 
transfer will be made from your account with our bank into your other account in your country 
without attracting any transfer charge.

Also During the account setup process, a copy of the Presidential Payment Clearance Certificate 
will be procured in your favour at no extra cost. This certificate enables you to receive your 
payment without any demand for any clearance papers by any office or bank. This Presidential 
Payment Clearance Certificate supercedes every previously issued transfer certificates as 
stipulated by Mr. President. This is to checkmate the activities of unscrupulous individuals who 
have capitalized on the demand for different certificates as a means to extort money from reputable 
contractors just to satisfy their selfish interest.  

Do note that this is the only obligation for the transfer of your fund.  This measure became 
necessary because you do not currently operate any current / domiciliary account with our bank and 
as such the above refundable account setup fee of US$350 to enable us setup / activate your account 
and transfer your accrued of US$3,500,000.00 via key tested telegraphic transfer {K.T.T}. This sum 
is not deductible from your original sum. It is imperative to let you know that we are committed to 
ensuring the immediate transfer of your accrued interest into your nominated bank account as we 
have put all modalities in place to accomplish this task. Kindly comply with the above directives 
so as to avert any delays.

Please do not hesitate to get back to us on receipt of this message for further clarification, as 
we promise to give you the best of banking services. Please note that we shall note honor any 
request for deduction as we do not have access to the Federal Reserve vault of the government where 
the funds are presently.

Yours Truly, 

Mr. Chris Oshiafi
