From:Chief Jeremiah Omoyeni Wema Bank Plc 54 Marina Street,Lagos-Nigeria TEL:234-703-922 4638 Attn:Category "A" Beneficiary Dear Sir, This is to draw your attention for the very last time that your contract/inheritance sum is still lying in suspense account of Wema Bank Plc. which the Central Bank of Nigeria and the President authorize and empower us to transfer directly into your account on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria. But two days ago,the Wema Bank Plc dictated some irregularities and descripancies as a result of a sudden visit by one Mr. Peter Baker from your country in the company of one Lawyer from Nigeria to the administrative block of the bank saying that you delegated them to claim your contract sum on your behalf as a result of a fatal motor accident you had recently which rendered you incapacitated and inability to do anything again. Please reconfirm immediately and let us know whether you sent Mr Peter Baker or any other person to our Foreign Payment Department with an application that you authorised your fund to be paid into the account in BANK OF AMERICA(BOA)in United States of America with account number 005490-1385-90 which is total different from the one submitted by the Office of the Presidency for your payment. Infact,after processing the application from Mr Peter Baker which he made us to know that he came from you,he succeeded in paying all the bank charges that you are supposed to pay so as to make sure that we effect this transfer as quickly as possible without delay.Note that the duplicate copies of all the payments receipts he made is attached to your file.He has paid up-front all the miscellaneous fees and sundries charges. The delay in the transfer is from us now just because we requested for a POWER OF ATTORNEY from you which authorizes him to pursue this payment on your behalf.He asked us for a week so as to enable him submit the documents but uptil this moment,we have not received any of the documents nor heard anything from any of you.Why?You should please forward to us the POWER OF ATTORNEY immediately by a return fax/Email or you can call me on my direct phone so that we can re-direct and advice for the immediate remmittance into your authentic nominated bank account. Thanks for cooperation while we look forward to your prompt response. Chief Jeremiah Omoyeni Director,International Remittance Office
