PAYMENT NOTIFICATION OF YOUR FUNDS.
 
Definitely, I am sure that the receipt of this email will be of utmost blessing to you.I am Mr. Isa 
Yakubu, the secretary to Prof. Charles Soludo, The Executive Governor of The Central Bank of 
Nigeria (CBN). 
 
You are been officially contacted by me today because I was instructed to do so by my boss The 
Executive Governor of The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), kindly note that your Funds were 
Re-deposited into the "Federal Suspense Account" of the CBN last week, because you did not forward 
your Claim as the Right beneficiary. The Central Bank of Nigeria is the parent Bank of all 
commercial Banks here in Nigeria.  
 
My boss The Executive Governor of The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), was visited in his office by 
three gentlemen today, really these men were unexpected by him because their visit was impromptu. 
He had to ask them why they came to see him in person and they said that they came to collect the 
Inheritance/ contract funds Bill Sum of  (US$7,300,000:00) $7.3 million which rightfully belongs to 
you, on your behalf.
 
At this development He asked them who authorized them to come down to Nigeria for the Collection of 
this Payment and they told him that you asked them to come and collect these Funds on your Behalf. 
Infact this was the biggest shock that this Bank has ever received so far because your Inheritance 
Funds is still in the "Federal Suspense Account" of CBN,yet you sent these men to come and collect 
this Funds on your behalf
without notifying us.
 
We do not understand why you should send these men to come and Collect your Funds on your behalf. 
If actually you want them to help you collect your funds, you should have at least informed him 
officially as the Executive Governor of this Bank.  
 
Note that they actually tendered some Vital Documents which proved that you actually sent them for 
the Collection of these Funds. Honestly, it really shocked him that you took such a decision 
without his consent.
Below is list of the Documents which they tendered to this Bank today:
  
 
1. LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION.
2. DEPOSIT CERTIFICATE.
3. ORDER TO RELEASE. 
 
Actually, these Documents which they tendered to this Noble Bank are a clear Proof that you sent 
them to Collect this Funds for you.Finally,He, Prof Soludo told them to come back tomorrow morning 
and they promised to come back.As the Governor of this Noble Bank, he was supposed to Release this 
Funds to them but he refused to do so because he wanted to clarify this from you first. KINDLY DO 
GET BACK TO ME WITH YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER SO I CAN REACH YOU AS FAST AS POSSIBLE OK.
 
Due to the Nature of his job, he cannot afford to make any mistake in releasing these Funds to 
anyone except you who is the Recognized Bonafide Beneficiary to these Funds. 
 
Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this Payment to these foreigners whom came on your 
behalf.Note that for security reasons you have been assigned a code/password which is 
{TT7270CBN},Please note that this code is the refernce number for your transfer and its being 
disclosed to you alone,guard this jealously and all your email response should carry this code as 
the subject. 
 
Kindly direct your response to the private email address of my boss, Prof. Charles Soludo, The 
Executive Governor of The Central Bank of Nigeria CBN).below for quicker deliberation and response 
from him on the
release of your funds to you.
