From The Desk Of
Prof. Charles Soludo
Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER.
I am delighted to contact you on a private note based on your contract/inheritance funds claim, which has been programmed for transfer into your designated bank account through my department. I hereby apologize to you for the delay in releasing these funds into your account, which was caused by me because of breach of agreement between me and your so called partners in Nigeria who introduced you into the business.
Your Nigerian partners approached me that they want to present you as a beneficiary of this fund as it was an OVER-INVOICING made when transferring contract/inheritance funds into various bank accounts abroad. So after the negotiation, we unanimously agreed that they (your partners) would give me the sum of US$400,000.00 (CASH) on my acceptance to assist them to transfer the fund into your account.
When I accepted the offer, they forwarded all your banking particulars to me for onward transfer. As soon as I made some fruitful effort on the business and demanded my US$400,000.00 as agreed. Your partners deviated from the agreement and decided to go through the International Remittance Department at my back and make a change of some vital documents in other to disappoint me and you also not knowing that the International remittance Department is also under my control. Then I got the knowledge of their evil plans and prove their illicit efforts abortive.
That is why you may have to been pursing this payment, spending unnecessary funds to some fraudulent individuals and impostors in Nigeria who claimed to be in charge to release your fund. Though they now parade themselves as staffs and managements of various banks, some even claim to be a Barrister of different types and some also go as far as claim staffs of the Central bank Of Nigeria or as me Prof. Charles Soludo, they are all deceiving them selves and will not be able to get the fund out of the Central Bank for you.
I want to re-emphasis to you that the fund of which you are the rightful beneficiary as acclaimed, is still with CBN and under my control. Now with my whole heart I want to enter into real business with you on a sincere agreement since your partners have disappointed me and the fund is still floating in yourname waiting for a proper documentation and claim.
1. On an agreement, I assure you that I will transfer the funds US$35.9 million into your account. (Thirty five million, nine hundred thousand US dollars). That is the original sum, not previous as mentioned by your so called partners.
2. You will assure me of keeping my dealings with you to an utmost secrecy because of my position in the government.
3. You will promise to give me 30% of the total fund as soon as the fund gets into your account with a written promissory note signed by you.
4. I will assist you in making a proper documentation to make your claim genuine as a bonafide foreign beneficiary to the said fund.
5. You are to Re-forward me your contact address, phone and fax number, along with an account where you would like the fund to be transferred, if possible a virgin account.
I am also aware that some fraudulent individuals have been impersonating my name and office to contact you and other beneficiary as reported by the Central Bank of Nigeria security department.
I henceforth advice you to suspend any dealings from any group of person(s) either from the CBN or any other financial institution / prostates in Nigeria or overseas that might be contacting you in this purpose and endeavor to keep this information confidential until we finalize this transaction to avoid them using it as an advantage to scam you again or even make you lose your money.
Also on no account must you contact these partners any more, this is for my own safety and for the security of the funds. Because they will not get this fund. And also on no account must you let them know of my contact with you.
Please reply this message urgently for further details.
Thanks for adhering to this instruction.
I await your favorable response.
God bless you.
Prof. Charles C. Soludo.
Executive Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
