Attn: Hon Contractor,
How are you today? Its been long I heard from you. Sequel to the secretive arrangement in regards of the payment of your long overdue contract sum, I wish to inform you that all necessary modalities have Been automatically concluded and your fund have been programmed through ATM CARD which you must pick Via your Country embassy in Nigeria by a Diplomat this is to checkmate fraud and scams going on in the Country Seeing that you have gone through a lot trying to receive this fund through wire transfer and other means but all to no Avail.
You must appoint a diplomat from your embassy in NIGERIA to come to Central bank of Nigeria (CBN) Lagos office to sign and collect this ATM CARD containing your total contract sum this new measure is in place to make sure that all our foreign owned contractors is being paid without defrauding them by some unauthorized scam artist who specialized in collecting money from foreign contractors.
Note carefully the content, a situation where you do not want to go through your Country embassy in Nigeria our accredited attorney with (CBN) will help to sign on your behalf and as well he must take the ATM CARD to your Country embassy in Nigeria for confirmation before we can dispatch such to your receiving address in your Country of Origin.
Registration of ATM CARD was initiated by the American Government in conjunction with federal government of Nigeria to checkmate fraud and corruption in the banking system they immediately held a meeting in Geneva Switzerland with the United Nations, The European Community, The Organization Of African Unity and the American Government, that any huge amount of money that is leaving from any West African countries shore must be registered with that countries Judicial Service Commission and also with the Nigerian Financial Funds Monitoring Unit including the destination Countries embassy in Nigeria respectively. Reason was to checkmate terrorism money and also drug money/money laundering including the incessant attacks from the terror Islamic groups called Boko Haram, any huge amount of Money that is leaving from the shores of Nigeria or coming into Nigeria most have to be scrutinized to checkmate the people sponsoring all this terror attacks here so that is the most reason why your ATM CARD information most have to be duly registered with your Countries embassy in Nigeria before we can dispatch it to you .
So as you can see we cannot go against this treaty rather we most have to obey to enable us carry out well all the Modalities and regulations. I will strongly advise you to try as much as possible to have your country diplomat in Nigeria to move to (CBN) and sign on your behalf for us to dispatch your approved ATM CARD accordingly which is the only thing that will be holding your funds or alternatively appoint our accredited attorney to do that on your behalf and the statutory fee for him to do the registration is not much, it is something that you can afford.
I will be waiting for your response as soon as possible, Call me on my phone today which is (+234-9064296126.)For more oral clarification in respect of this mail, I will be waiting for your call.
