Subject: Attn: Beneficiary,
I am compelled to write you in
respect of your fund remittance, which transfer has remained unsuccessful. I am
very sure that you must have lost hope of ever getting your fund transfer
released especially after all the frustrations, endless disappointment and
broken promises in the hands of some officials.
However, I am
writing you because I am familiar with the history of this fund release. My
privileged knowledge and acquaintance with this payment issue is due to my
closeness and association with the immediate past Finance Minister, who I worked
with from 2006 until his voluntary retirement in September 2010, and in addition
to the current position which I still maintain within the Ministry as such and
must not be revealed to any other Nigerian official no matter your cordiality
This request must be noted in view of the fact that
the current Finance Minister, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is yet to be
briefed on some outstanding issues and information by his predecessor and other
top officials of the Ministry who are not political appointees and who have
worked in the Ministry for more than 2decades. Briefly, I am quite sure that you
must be wondering the reason behind the non-release of your long awaited fund
after our Government officially granted approval for its remittance. I may also
believe that you would have received countless, unconfirmed and spurious payment
Advices and remittance instructions from some officials indicating that they
have granted approval for the transfer of your fund.
You may have
also been directed to visit different cities and countries with the instruction
that your fund would be released at such payment post or that your fund could be
delivered to you at your residence. All these are cooked up Stories from
impostors who wish to extort money from you while they do not have any knowledge
of the true position of your fund transfer. Meanwhile, I would like you to note
(1) Our government has granted irrevocable
payment approval for your fund remittance.
release of this fund according to the record from the office of the Accountant
General of the Federation and Ministry of Finance have been duly effected and
(3) Your fund is presently being held at
Union Bank of Nigeria, the only authorized and approved bank by the Federal
Government to handle all foreign contract debts.
However for the
avoidance of doubt, the reason for the non-release of your fund is due to the
fact that the paying Bank has not received any direct instruction about the
beneficiary of the outstanding amount as the fund is still being held in the
name of the original contractor's name Elblan IND.S.A. Luxembourg, in view of
the non-provision of a proof of ownership of the fund and you were not told the
truth by your Nigerian representatives to change Elblan IND.S.A. Luxembourg's
name to your own name in other to enable you claim the fund because your
Nigerian representatives is very much aware that once the truth about your fund
release is told, it will put an end to their illegal extortion from
If you are very certain that you will not disclose this
information to anyone, get back to me and I will give you further directives on
what you should do immediately.
NB: You are to stop further
dealings with any of your Nigeria Representatives with immediate effect, so to
stop further extortion.
