value.Sorry for the inconveniences that was rendered to you in your
line of Inheritance Payment transaction with some Nigerian Officials
some while ago.
Without taking much of your time, my name is Chief.Tony Elumelu, the
Honourable Paymaster General of The Federal Republic of Nigeria (UBA).
Presently we are being paid by the American government in other to
avert Scam and also to avert beneficiary funds delays here in Nigeria,
So far, we have succeeded in Settling (Mrs. Ann Keyser,Mr. Edward
Drake, Mr. Caleb Jones etc).
Your Funds were returned to the Federal Government Treasury some while
ago because you did not finalize your claim for it. A week ago, the
Presidency and The Federal Executive Council collectively agreed to
release the sum of US$3,000,000.00 to you but to our surprise you sent
down your representatives Mr. Tim Parker and Mr. Rowland Gulf to
collect this Funds on your behalf, this morning.

Funds into their own Bank Account in Singapore (Asia).
We await your immediate response via email and telephone.Reply to:
