FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA
Our Ref: EOP/AGF/101X48/2011
In order to guard against the menace posed by miscreants in the release of foreign debts owed by my country, I want to use this medium to inform you that my government have signed a pact with one of the Pan African Banks in Republic of Ghana called The Trust Bank Limited Ghana to assist us in taking care of our contractors/claimant’s payment as this is in pursuance of the due process and conformity with the transparency
programme of my government and in my crusade against corruption and also inline with the provisions of the law as contained in ACT 114 section 17 paras (A) (B) of the 2010 amended constitution.
Prior to this, I want to bring to your notice that I have been informed by the Foreign Debts’ Commission (FDC) a panel instituted by me for this purpose, that your payment verification exercise conducted today has been ‘very successful’ and that you have been short-listed among those to be paid. Therefore you are advised as a matter of extremely urgency to contact the Remittance Director of The Trust Bank Limited Ghana, Mr. Kwesi George on his official telephone number: 233-206-760357 and or Email: email@example.com
for immediate release of your fund. Also, I advise you to cooperate with this bank to ensure speedy
delivery of service. Meanwhile, a Presidential Irrevocable Payment Approval Order has been forwarded to them on your favour.
However, my attention has been drawn to the nefarious activities of people purportedly acting under cover as ministerial officials and financial bodies to defraud our esteemed contractors/claimants. Therefore, I strongly advise that you desist from further communication with person(s) claiming to have the mandate to effect your payment here in Nigeria or outside Nigeria, as my government will not be held liable for any loss accruing to you due to your negligence in adhering to my instructions.
I want to state it clearly here, that I have not authorized nor appointed any other financial institution or agent(s) here in Nigeria or outside Nigeria for the release of your fund “except” the above mentioned bank. Therefore, be wary of whomever that is contacting you regarding to the release of your
