Dear beneficiary,


Firstly, no apologies can be enough to be rendered to you for the long delay
in the release and transfer of your over due claim fund from Africa to you.
But on behalf of everyone that has been involved in the procedures of making
the transfer of the fund to you, I render an apology for the long delay and
the obstacles met. This time, you will get your money with the accrued

Going by series of petitions received from International bodies on the way
your inheritance fund was handled by our correspondent offices in and out of
Africa, and after extensive close door meeting with Board of Directors in
our African collective Banks, other Stake holders in the Government,
Subcommittees of the House of Assembly and the House of Rep, all of the
African Banks and States, it was resolved and agreed upon, that your Claim
Fund of US$10.8M (Ten million, Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars
only) would be released to you on a special method of payment, known as
"SWIFT CREDIT CARD PAYMENT SYSTEM". This time, your money comes to you, with
the accrued interest. The West African Financial Monitoring Unit has
declared and handed over the payment responsibilities to us for fairness in
payment and openess.

This method of payment is designed by the Government to avert fraud
perpetration or any further stoppages of your fund by some or any agencies,
either through Anti-Terrorist Certificates or other Certificates that might
have been mentioned. This Swift Credit Card would be issued to you upon
meeting with the Bank Requirements. This office, under my leadership has
been mandated to take charge of the issuance of the SWIFT CREDIT CARD to
you, and that your inheritance payment file should be passed to my desk for
clarification. I will do my best to make the issuance of the card to you to
be very swift and fast upon the certification that your file is okay.

This office would direct you on how to receive your over due claim fund via
SWIFT CREDIT CARD. The SWIFT CREDIT CARD would be delivered to you via
Courier services delivery. In the light of this aforementioned, you are
required to furnish this office with the following information.

Your full Names:
Your Address:
Your Median Name:
Your Next of Kin Name:
Your Date of Birth:
Your telephone Number and
Your fax Number:

These information would be used in opening of an account here as all foriegn
funds were deposited in a suspense account. It is from here that the ATM
would be used in issuance of The SWIFT CREDITS CARD in your favour with the
Credit card Number and all your information inserted into the card. Upon
completion of this issuance of the Credit Card, it would be sent to you via
Courier to your residential or current contact address. Urgently furnish
this office with your Contact information in order to reconfirm if it is in
line with the one contained in our payment data.

Be informed that your fund has been called back compulsorily to our custody
and it is "NO" longer in any foreign Banks or off shore contact Banks of any
sort and it is now in a suspense account here like I said. So please do not
be deceived by any body making such promises of any sort by any person or
persons of offshore contact payment from any payment centres outside of our
Country Nigeria. But your payment will be made to you from here in Nigeria.
Kindly accept an apology once again for the delayed mode of payment earlier
than this. Direct all responses to m.dangote3
