From the office of:
The Attorney General of the Federation
And Minister for Justice,
Federal Ministry Of Justice,
Attn: Beneficiary,
Date: 04/2/2015
After the weekly federal executive council meeting, presided over by the president himself, Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, the federal government of Nigeria is not happy about unpaid foreign debts, some of which has been long over due and has dragged for too long, some running into years.
We discovered from our investigations, that this was as a result of inefficiency on the part of the commercial banks, which hitherto, had handled this project in the past, unsuccessfully. The federal government of Nigeria, seriously frowns at this ugly development and cannot fold its arms and watch its name being tarnished in the international community, hence this urgent/concrete step to save our dear foreign beneficiaries and our image.
We have also discovered with great displeasure, the series of demands by these banks and their cohorts, thereby subjecting our beneficiaries to untold extortion. The federal government has thus mandated this office to issue an AFFIDAVIT from the highest court of the land(The Supreme Court), to waive all payments of any sort at the banks before transferring beneficiaries' funds, including cost of transfer charges and other fees until your fund hits your bank account.
We have thus reached a compromise with the transferring banks and have taken up the cost of transfer and telex charges running into thousands of dollars, this will serve as a respite to our beneficiaries.
This vital document(AFFIDAVIT), will bear a copy of either your driver's licence or international passport for security reasons and shall be duely authenticated also at the supreme court of Nigeria. This is part of our fight against corruption and to redeem our image in the globe
You are therefore urgently requested to furnish us with the following:
1. Your full personal details, names etc.
2. Your full banking details, where you wish your fund to be wired.
3. Your total contract/inheritance)--please indicate if your payment is for contract or inheritance.
4. Total amount expected
5. Copy of your international passport or driver's licence
The above information will enable us prepare the affidavit of waiver in your favour, and have your fund finally transfered.
I await your urgent response with the above required information, while counting on your maximum cooperation in our fight against corruption.
Finally, you are warned to stop any further communication with any one, bank, ministry, demanding for money to transfer your fund in order not to jeopardise our good efforts.
Note: The above affidavit to be issued to you by this office, is all you need to have your fund released.
Good luck and be well guided.
