I am sure that you are not aware that USD2.6M was moved to our bank (First National Bank) in your favor as the beneficiary. The money arrived our bank as cash via trunk box in company of two government officials from Nigeria since May, 2014 and the money in question was deposited in a domiciliary account in your favor. The two officials later submitted bank account where the money will be transferred into, but because the account details they submitted to transfer the USD2.6M into from the domiciliary account was not in your favor, my department (Foreign Financial Matters) did not transfer the money.
The USD2.6M  has stayed more than six (6) months approved for banks in United Kingdom by the British financial governing body to keep NON RESIDENTS fund in a domiciliary account without in- flow and out-flow of fund. For this reason, the management of our bank has decided to move the money to government treasury as unclaimed fund, if the beneficiary should fail to claim the money on or before 11/28/2014. I took it upon myself to contact you directly, though it is against the financial laid down rules & regulations of financial institutions.
I will give you more details on how to claim your fund upon receipt of your response.
Mr.Nicholas Brumsey
