I am Terrence J. Checki, Executive director Emerging Markets and
International Affairs Group supports two of the Bank's key objectives:
fostering international financial stability and expanding international
relationships. I am currently representing the United States Federal
Reserve Bank in Nigeria . I assume this office in June following the
mandate of President George Bush to the Federal Reserve Bank.
The new elected Nigeria President Alhaji Umar Musa Yar'Adua, has requested
that United States government grant loan of $ 1.2 Billion to enable his
government pay up foreign contractors who have been owed over the years.
President Bush however assented to the request on one condition. i.e that
the Grant will be managed by the US Federal Reserve Bank which is why I am
in Nigeria to handle the process. This is to forestall a situation where
the money will be diverted to other uses or to private pockets of the
Nigerian government officials, as is the case all over Africa. The
President Alhaji Umar Musa Yar'Adua accepted this condition and initial
grant of $500 million was given by the US government.
This money is with the Federal Reserve bank in New York, from where your
funds will be transfered to your nominated account. What this means in
effect is that the transaction has been taken away from Nigerians and we
will make sure that all contractors get there payment from this fund once
your contract is cleared and approved by the Nigerian Government. In view
of this development, I wish to assure you that your payment will be
effected without delay as soon as the information you provide is confirmed
by the Nigerian Government.
You are hereby requested to confirm your contract No, and the contract
amount immediately you receive this email. As soon as this is done, we
will instruct our New York office to transfer the said amount within 24
hours to your account.
I am happy to inform you that we have successfully paid some contractors
within this short period .All we are asking from you is to follow our
instruction to achieve maximum results. The good news is that you will not
be reaped of your money anymore, the Federal Reserve Bank is handling the
payment this time.
Your immediate adherence to sending the requested information will enable
us proceed with the payments immediately. I am determined to succeed in
making sure that no foreign contractor loose any money to the Nigerian
Government. I therefore ask you to help me achieve this goal by responding
as soon as possible so as to conclude this payment on time.
Please feel free to call me or send email to: email@example.com
or send a fax to:15093550706 when you receive this mail in case you have
any question you may want to ask. I am personally interested in your case
and I assure that you will receive your payment in no time.
Mr. Terrence J. Checki
