Sequel to the complaint from funds beneficiaries over the delay in
getting their funds transferred to their nominated bank accounts in
their home countries, the World Bank in conjunction with the United
Nations and the Nigerian government, through the office of the
presidency, have set up this committee, to clear and effect transfer
of all approved funds transfer been delayed in banks, all over the

We have looked into your records and have found out that your funds
transfer was approved long ago for transfer to your account,but the
reason why your funds is been delayed, is due to the fact that you have a lot
of irregularities(mix up) in your payment file, as the information’s
supplied by you and your representative are not correct and does not
correspond with the claims officers records at the payee bank.

Also from what we have in your file, your representative have also,
sent in a counter application, saying that you are dead and that your
Approved funds, should be transferred to Mr. James Smith of
Canada, whom your representative said is your next of KIN, Note that
your representatives also
sent in a bank account, with the national bank of Canada belonging to
James Smith (your supposed next of kin) for the final transfer of the
said funds to Canada and not to you.

Your representatives, Claimed that you are dead and that your money
should be re-approved and transferred to Mr. James Smith of Canada,
whom they said is your next of KIN.

Hence, this e-mail, is to reconfirm

1, if you are truly dead or alive.
2, if you actually instructed your representatives, to re-approve and
transfer your long approved funds to Mr. James Smith of Canada.
3, if Mr. James Smith, is truly your next of KIN

You have three days to get back to us, to stop, Mr. James Smith
or we shall transfer the funds to Canada, we are using this medium to
verify and be very sure that you are truly dead as said by your
representative here, before approving the transfer of your money
valued at sixteen million,four hundred thousand dollars($16.4M usd) to

We advice that you stop any further communication with any other
person,persons or office concerning the transfer of your funds and
attention to this office for immediate transfer of your long approved
funds to your
bank account, if you are still alive, as we have had cases of people
using this means to steal other peoples funds with the help of
fraudulent lawyer, bank,officials and fraudulent government officials.

Please note that, this exercise ,is meant to clean up the image of
Africa and the world in general, as our job is been monitored by the
government, the united nations and the world bank, so we are
working hard to achieve a good result.

Yours in office,
