From: Ms. Carman L. Lapointe Head Of United Nations Under-Secretary General For Internal Oversight Services. This is to inform you that I came to Nigeria yesterday from Canada, after series of complaint from the FBI and other Security agencies from Asia,Europe, South America and the United States of America respectively, against the Federal Government of Nigeria and the British Government for the high volume of scam/fraudulent activities going on in these two nations. For more information about me kindly click on the below link or copy and paste on your web browser. http://www.un.org/Depts/oios/pages/usg.html Right now, as directed by UN secretary General named Ban Ki-Moon we are working in collaborations with the Nigerian Financial Crime Commission/agencies and we have decided to waive away all your clearance fees/Charges and authorized the Government of Nigeria to effect your overdue payment worth $5,000,000.00 only into your account without any delay as approved your funds transfer as instructed by CANADIAN government and UNITED NATIONS. But the only fee you will pay to receive your fund is the Notarization fee. Upon your request, I will tell you the amount and also send you the payment information you will use in sending the Notarization fee. Honestly, you are a lucky person because I have just discovered that some top Nigerian and Canadian Government Officials are interested in your funds and they are working in collaboration with One Mr. Richard Graves from USA to divert your fund into his personal account so they could share thereafter. Note that I have a very limited time to stay in Nigeria here so I would like you to urgently respond to this message with your full name, full home address,direct phone number so that I can advise you on how best to confirm your fund in your account within the next 72 hours. Once again, the only fee you will pay to receive your fund is the Notarization fee. Upon your request, I will tell you the amount and also send you the payment information you will use in sending the Notarization fee. You can reach me with below information: Name: Ms. Carman L.Lapointe Email Address: email@example.com Sincerely yours, Ms. Carman L.
