I write to officially introduce myself to you as "Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala". I was appointed in July 2011 as the new Minister of Finance for the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Prior to this appointment, I was the Managing Director of World Bank (October 2007 - July 2011) and has also held the position of a Finance Minister and Foreign Minister of Nigeria, between 2003 and 2006. I am notable for being the first woman to hold either of those positions. I served as finance minister from July 2003 until my appointment as foreign minister in June 2006, and as foreign minister until my resignation in August 2006. I am writing by virtue of this email communication to inform you about the outcome of the Federal Executive Council meeting held yesterday Thursday 2nd
February 2012, under the instruction of our President. (Dr. Good-Luck Ebele Jonathan). The purpose of the seating by the Federal Executive Council were concerning foreign debts owed to our foreign contractors/inheritance fund
However, acting in my capacity as the newly-appointed Minister of Finance for the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I have been mandated by the Senate National Assembly to check through the statutory disk of every payment pending during the last quarter of the year. Hence, your payment file has been forwarded to my desk for final approval. Therefore, after vetting and verification about the source and origin of your funds, I am convinced 100% that the $6,500,000.00 dollars is a legitimate inheritance claim. Hence, I have granted approval for the release of the $6,500,000.00 dollars in your favor.
For this reason, your payment has been rightfully approved and will be paid out directly into your
bank account via "automatic swift transfer" from our Electronic transfer unit. Already, all transfer processing has been concluded in line with the new Nigeria Payment Policy. But before the $6,500,000.00 dollars can be credited into your bank account, a "Payment Release Code" must be issued to you personally from the Electronic Transfer Unit, which will enable your funds to be credited into your bank account within 2 hours. Issuance of the "Payment Release Code" is in total compliancy with the Principles of the Banking Codes on Money Laundering and it is also in accordance with the new CBN Payment Policy. Hence, issuance of the "Payment Release Code" attract a fee of $100 dollars ONLY; and the $100 dollars is the ONLY FEE you will be requested to pay for the final release of your funds. Every and all other fees will be deducted at source automatically.
However, on the note of receiving your inheritance funds, you are requested to forward
the details of your receiving bank account; as well as make arrangement to secure and send the issuance fee of $100 dollars for the "Payment Release Code". The $100 dollar fee must be sent through Western Union or MoneyGram with the name of the Payment officer at the Electronic Transfer Unit (MR. CHRISTOPHER JOHNSON) as per the below details:
