URGENT ATTENTION !!
How are you and your entire family, I hope you are all in a good present state of mind and health. In regard to the previous mail sent to you concerning your contract payment worth $8.3Million United State Dollars which was recently endorsed for disbursement by the central bank of Nigeria, we were informed that from the records of the outstanding contractors whom their fund is due for payment with the Federal Government of Nigeria, your name and company were discovered to be next on the list of the outstanding contractors who have not yet received their payment accordingly.
It might interest you to know that we have already contacted the person in charge of your transfer ( Dr. Lamido Sanusi) and he assured us that as soon as they hear from you they start taking the next procedural step regards to the release of your fund to you. We advise that you contact the CBN. payment department immediately and ask that they attend to your payment file BEFORE THE DEAD LINE DATE. We have take out time in screening through this project as stipulated on our protocol of operation and have finally confirmed that your contract payment is 100% genuine and from all fact and of which you have the lawful right to claim your fund without any further delay. Having said all this, we will further advise that you go ahead in dealing with the Central Bank office accordingly as we will be monitoring all their services with you as well as your Correspondence at all level.
Note that the central bank of Nigeria equally have their own protocol as stipulated in their banking operation, so we advise that you follow up their procedure as may be required from you as that will further hasten up the whole process regard to the release of your inheritance fund/overdue, compensation payment to you as instructed by the federal government of Nigeria.Also want to use this opportunity to WARN you against some hoodlums that are impersonating my office and other government agencies for the purpose of extorting money from innocent CITIZENS like you. Be very vigilant and always forward to my office, any messages sent to you before replying to them so that we can confirm if its genuine or not..We are poised to taking this precaution so as make sure you don’t fall victim to those miscreants who are claiming to be who they are not. Like I told you before, we recently had a meeting with the executive governor, Central Bank office prior to your case and they presented to us the real official contact information of the genuine Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) of which we have enclosed below for your observation and reference.
EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR: Dr. Lamido Sanusi
OFFICE ADDRESS: Central Bank of Nigeria ,
Central Business District,
Abuja , Federal Capital Territory ,
NOTE: In your best interest, any message that doesn’t come from the above official email address and phone numbers should not be replied to and should be disregarded accordingly for security reasons. The reason is because we received a fax today from the Central Bank office, stating that they have recently been informed through their under ground monitoring unit that some hoodlums are contacting you claiming to be from the Central Bank of Nigeria, just to collect money from you for no just course. Although, We have started our investigation on how to get this hoodlums and as well bring them to book and note that any information you send to us, will go along way in helping us track this fraudsters down. To this effect, we will like you to forward to us any of their contact information so as to enable us forward copy to all the relevant security agencies. Reconfirm your information details to the EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR: Dr. Lamido Sanusi via the above stated contact information.
Once again, we will advise that you contact the Central Bank office only with the above information as soon as you can because they have already started sorting our contract payments to serious clients and your case should not be exempted. This is all I can tell you for now until you have contacted them as directed. Like we also stated in the previous email which we sent to you, we will continue monitoring all the services of this project during and after your fund must have been routed to you as designated so you need nothing to worry about prior to that. All we just need from you, is your utmost cooperation as it is our duty to protect your interest at all time.
