Please note that some fraudsters are claiming to be the Executive Chairman, Chief Mrs. Vivian 
Martins (AIG rtd.) or staff of The Nigeria Investigation Bureau have recently been sending phony 
e-mails/letters and also calling unsuspecting persons, with intent to defraud them. It is important 
to note that these fraudsters are criminals engaged in Advanced Fee Fraud known in Nigeria as 419. 
Every day, people throughout the world are falling victim to scams of one kind or another. But 
remember - if it sounds too good to be true, it is probably a scam. In the circumstance, we 
unreservedly advice you to dissociate yourself from all correspondence and transactions entered 
into based on evidently fraudulent and fictitious claims.
