I am the Chief Engineer in the Computer/Telex Department Of the Central
Bank Of Nigeria(CBN). My Department is solely in Charge of Payment
Computers, Telex Crediting, Credit Control Unit & Reconciliation Of all
International and Receipt/Payment transaction of this Apex Bank.
However, note that your Part-Payment Of US$10,000,000.00(Ten Million
United States Dollars Only) has reflected several times in our payment
computers as pending and seem to be forgotten. I understand that some CBN
Directors are having Clashes-Of-Interest regarding your Payment. We
also aware that you have made reasonable financial commitment towards the
release of your funds, but to no avail.
Therefore, as it is right now,I am very happy to inform you that there is
a way out of which when executed judiciously will surely make a
difference. I am taking this step because most of the top-Directors in
this bank here are on compulsory leave while some have some suspended
because of their greedy acts towards this your payment. So give me this
unique opportunity to prove difference as the way you are presently
following will make you lose and spend more money and you will not get
anything at the end. Note also that we also meant to understand that you
have received so many proposals as regard to thisyour payment and you are
still receiving or even dealing with one now. Am I right?

account within three(3) days once we receive your acceptance offer as this
