Good Day,

I know you must have received about 5 different emails like this everyday but i want you to know in 
my own case you have nothing to worry about!!!

I am Rev. John Okolie and a banker by profession with banking experience of 35years. Presently, I 
am working with the Central Bank of Nigeria at the transfer department and am in charge of Foreign 
Transfer. I want to use this opportunity to let you know that I came across your file that was 
painted Red and marked X and your transfer has been put on pending and hold for so long. I took 
time to carry out my investigation and only to find out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees but 
the fund was not released to you.

I'm writing to confirm if you are dead or alive because I am looking for all means to get this fund 
across to you or your family. I needed to do this because you need to know the statues of your 
Funds and cause for the delay, please this is like a Mafia setting here in Africa, and you may not 
understand it because you are not from Nigeria. I am only doing this because I have the fear of GOD 
in me and I hate to see people been cheated.

Note: That the actual funds is valued at $10.5 Million Dollars and i have transferred your funds 
out of Central Bank of Nigeria and deposited it at the NatWest Bank UK on your behalf. I shall be 
looking forward to hear from you if you are still very much alive? because the only thing needed is 
for you to make the payment of $220 for the Cost of Transfer {C.O.T}. As soon as you make the 
payment your funds will be transfer into your Bank Account.

In view of development you have to send me your banking information where you what your funds to be 
transferred to.

(2) Your nationality:
(3) Your next of kin:
(4) Your bank name:
(5) Your account number:
(6) Your bank address:
