Attn:Dear Valid Beneficiary,
Definitely, I know that this letter will be a surprising one to you. Firstly, I will like to introduce myself formally as Mr. Lamido Sanusi, The Executive Governor of The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
I am officially contacting you today because your Inheritance Funds were Re-deposited into the "Federal Suspense Account" of CBN last week, because you did not forward your Claim as the Right beneficiary. Well known to all, The Central Bank of Nigeria is the mother Bank of all commercial Banks here in Nigeria.
Really these men were unexpected by me because their visit was impromptu. I had to ask them why they came to see me in person and they said that they were here to Collect the Inheritance Bill Sum of (US$1.5M) which rightfully belongs to you, on your behalf.
At this development I asked them who authorized them to come down to Nigeria for the Collection of this Payment and they told me that you asked them to come and collect this Funds on your Behalf. In fact this was the biggest shock that this Bank have 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 in this Bank do not understand why you sent these men to come and Collect your Funds on your behalf. If actually you want them to help you collect your Inheritance Bill Sum, at least you should have informed me as the Executive Governor of this Bank.
They actually tendered some Vital Documents, which proved that you actually sent them for the Collection of these Fund. Honestly, it really baffles me that you took such decision without my consent.
Here are the Documents, which they tendered to this Bank
1. LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION.
2. HIGH COURT INJUNCTION.
3. ORDER TO RELEASE.
Actually, these Documents, which they tendered to this Noble Bank, is a clear Proof that you sent them to Collect this Funds for you. Finally, I told them to come back and they promised to come back.
As the Governor of this Noble Bank, I was supposed to Release this Funds to them but I refused to do so because I wanted to hear from you first. Due to the Nature of my job, I will not want to make any mistake in Releasing this Funds to anyone except you whom is the Recognized Bonafide Beneficiary to this Funds.
Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this Payment to these foreigners whom came on your behalf. In receipt of this confidential Letter, you are required to respond immediately to this email: with your full name, address and phone number for reconfirmation and immediate action.
You are to reply me immediately you receive this email with my direct email information on the way forward:
NB.WE DISCOVERED YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED IN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER,BUT PLEASE NOW THAT WE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT PLEASE GET BACK TO US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THAT WE CAN GET YOUR FUND DELIVERED TO YOU.
By and large,the only thing you are to pay for if you will be claiming your funds by your own self is the administrative charges and the paper work as imposed by the federal government of Nigeria and Central Bank Policy, is $400.
His excellency. Lamido Sanusi.
