Subject: Swift Payment Alert!!!
I have been waiting for you to come down here and pick your consignment but
i did not hear anything from you for weeks now. I have deposited the
US$400,000.00 with the First Trust & Deposit Company here in Nigeria,
because I traveled to Finland for a Masters Degree Course and I will not
come back till the new year.
I have arranged with the First Trust & Deposit Company to get your
US$400,000.00 to you this month
and they will be sending an International
Certified Bank Cheque/Check to you cashable at any bank in the World. I
would have deposited the funds with a Bank for transfer into your own
account but the Bank procedure might be stressful.
I will like you to re-confirm your information to the First Trust & Deposit
Company so that there will be no mistake with the delivery and shipment of
the International Certified Bank Cheque/Check. Send the below information
to the First Trust & Deposit Company.
Once again, I would have preferred the funds to be transferred to you but I
make some searches about the Bank transfer and was informed that it will
cost you the sum of US$4,590 to transfer the US$400,000.00 into your
account. But I have deposited the US$400,000.00 to the First Trust &
Deposit Company, below is the First Trust & Deposit Company contact;
Contact Agent: Crown Powell
I have paid the delivery charges and insurance fee to the First Trust &
Deposit Company. The only Money that the First Trust & Deposit Company will
require from you is US$90 Dollars for demurrage. Once you can pay the US$90
Dollars to them, they will proceed and get the US$400,000.00 to you in your
Note: When contacting the First Trust & Deposit Company, ensure to state
your Full Name, Phone Number and your Address where you want them to
deliver the International Certified Bank Cheque/Check to you.
Also, require a copy of the Certificate of Authority for payment from them
which will be presented to you as a proof of legitimacy of the transaction.
The First Trust & Deposit Company will be
awaiting to hear from you and get
the payment to them as instructed for a swift delivery.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
