Dear Sir/Madam


I am compelled to write you in respect of your fund remittance, which
transfer has remained unsuccessful. I am very sure that you must have lost
hope of ever getting your fund transfer released especially after all the
frustrations, endless disappointment and broken promises in the hands of
some officials.

However, I am writing you because I am familiar with the history of this
fund release. My privileged knowledge and acquaintance with this payment
issue is due to my closeness and association with the immediate past
Governor of the central bank of Nigeria, Dr Joseph Sanusi, who I worked
with from 1999 until his voluntary retirement in may last year and in
addition to the current position which I still maintain within the Bank.
As such and must not be revealed to any other Nigerian official no matter
your cordiality and closeness.

This request must be noted in view of the fact that the current Governor
of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof Charles Soludo is yet to be briefed
on some outstanding issues and information by his predecessor and other
top officials of the Bank who are not political appointees and who have
worked in the bank for more than 2decades Briefly, I am quite sure that
you must be wondering the reason behind the non-release of your long
awaited fund after our Government officially granted approval for its
remittance. I may also believe that you would have received countless,
unconfirmed and spurious payment Advices and remittance instructions from
some officials indicating that they have granted approval for the transfer
of your fund.

You may have also been directed to visit different cities and countries
with the instruction that your fund would be released at such payment post
or that your fund could be delivered to you at your residence. All these
are cooked up
Stories from impostors who wish to extort money from you while they do not
have any knowledge of the true position of your fund transfer. Meanwhile,
I would like you to note the following.

(1) Our government has granted irrevocable payment approval
for your fund remittance.
(2) Official release of this fund according to the record
from the office of the Accountant General of the Federation and
Ministry of Finance have been duly effected and documented.
(3) Your fund is presently being held at the HSBC bank
International Ltd. (details available with me).
However for the avoidance of doubt, the reason for the non-release of the
fund by the Correspondence Bank is due to the fact that the Bank has not
received any direct instruction about the beneficiary of the outstanding
amount as the fund is still being held in the name of the original
contractor, ELBLAN IND.S.A. LUXEMBOURG, (details available with me), in
view of the non-provision of a proof of ownership of the fund.

The original contractors in collaboration with a top official of the Trade
& Exchange department of the central bank has been rolling the fund with
the Foreign Bank and the interest is shared amongst the officials.

If you are very certain that you will not disclose this information to
anyone, get back to me and I will give you further directives on what you
should do immediately.

Yours sincerely,
