35 Marina P. O. Box 5216,


This letter is written to you in order to change your life from today.
I am Rev Mike Donald Duck the Director, International Remittance
Department of this Bank, my Boss, Mr. Jacobs M. Ajekigbe, the Managing
Director/CEO of this bank is now on compulsory leave and all power
have been vested on me to make all international payments. Also, due
to reported cases of corrupt practices in other Nigeria Banks
including the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Federal Government has
revoked/cancelled all power vested on those banks and has appointed
our bank (First Bank of Nigeria) to make all foreign payments. Be
informed that the Federal Government have approved the release of
part-payment of$7.5M(Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) out
of your total funds, which has been in this bank for many years
unclaimed because my boss Mr. Jacobs Ajekigbe, elaboration with the
Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have refused to tell you the
truth on how to claim your fund this is because he has been using the
interest accumulated from your fund every year to enrich himself
without your knowledge, I want to help you pull out this fund to your
bank account using the easiest and the quickest method, which have not
been made known to you before. By this method, you will open a
domiciliary account with this bank (First Bank of Nigeria), your fund
would be lodged into this domiciliary account and your fund will be
paid in directly to any bank of your choice.

After the transfer, you will confirm the fund in your bank account
within 5hours the same day. No Cost of Transfer (COT) and no stoppage
from any Government departments as the transfer will be done within
the bank alone and it is very safe. The method which was introduced to
you before is the Telegraphic Transfer (TT) for which confirmation was
48hrs, because of the time factor, petitions could come from various
organizations stopping your payment and asking you to pay huge fee
which would be difficult for you to pay so that they can benefit from
the huge interest your fund generates while still in the Bank.
This method is not safe for you because it is not done within the bank
alone as information of the payment would be sent to the Central
Control Unit (CCU) of the Federal Ministry of Finance and office of
the Accountant General of the Federation. As a good Christian, I have
nothing to gain by keeping your fund, I want to assist you receive
your fund before my boss resumes office. You have to follow up and
work with me now, so keep this very confidential because of fraudsters
and impostors who go about presenting various bank accounts in order
to divert another beneficiary's fund. Your present/valid account
co-ordinates and amount to be claimed so that I do not transfer your
fund to the wrong Bank Account.

Await your quick Reply to via private id (
