In other words, we put it to you that we are ready to remit your said Funds into your choice Bank Account because we have a 5-6 working days constrain to Pay-off each beneficiary short-listed to be paid by this Ministry. Our Legal Unit have already reviewed your Payment Files and they have passed it on to my desk for me to Pay you accordingly, so be rest assured that you will receive your due funds in no distant time. Officially, you will receive your due Funds via an "Electronic Wire Transfer" which will enable your Funds reflect in your choice Bank Account within 48hrs after effect. This
mode of Payment is defined as one of the best and safest mode to remit huge Funds internationally as it is absolutely different from the usual swift transfer that takes longer time.

Certainly we shall transfer your due funds worth US$2,500,000:00 from the Sundry/Suspense Account of the Federal Government of Nigeria being the official Account for international/foreign Payments/debts. A Sundry/Suspense Account can be defined as a secret Account owned by a government and operated by certain assigned government officials being the authorized signatories whom must sign before Funds can be remitted from such account. For this very account no form of direct withdrawals can be made from it except a Bank to Bank wire transfer
which must be approved by the honorable President being the principal signatory to the account.
Consequent to the fact that I am responsible to pay you, it is still my duty to enlighten you on the accurate steps to take in other for you to gain full possession of the said Funds being approved in your name as the beneficiary.
In the combat against fraud, Funds diversion and funds delay, we have re-lengthy ensured that several foreign beneficiaries have been Paid accordingly in order to retain and rekindle our country's reputation on the global map because this recent government dispensation is focused and targeted to relieve all foreign debts as mandated by The Senate, The National House of Assembly, The Federal Executive Council (F.E.C), Code of Conduct Bureau and The Federal Ministry of Finance (F.M.F).
