After a crucial meeting with the President of the Federal Republic of
Nigeria yesterday, he has given an order with immediate effect, that
all beneficiaries whose contracts/inheritance payments are still
pending, that is to say, that those who have not yet received their
payments should have a cause to smile at last.

The President has approved the first batch payment of USD$10.5M (Ten
Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) to be paid to the
merited beneficiaries without further delay.

According to him, such beneficiary will only have to pay a fee of $150
only for an APPROVAL which will authenticated in his/her own payment
file. Once he pays the fee within 2 bank working days the beneficiary
will receive his/her fund without any further delay.

Also, the President sounded a note of warning that if after paying the
required fee of one hundred and fifty dollars ($150 usd) for the
APPROVAL and anyone or group of
individuals approaches you again asking for more money you should not
hesitate to report such a person to us for appropriate investigation
against such a person.

You are also informed that any beneficiary who prefers to receive his
payment by ATM method should forward to us his/her full names, address
and phone number. The cost of delivery is not payable by such a

If you choose to receive your fund by bank to bank wire transfer you
should also forward your bank details including your means of
identification and phone number.

If you prefer payment by Cash Delivery, you are to furnish us with
your full names, address and phone number. Cost of delivery is
payable by us.

You are to contact the bank which has been assigned with the payment
of such fund to you on the following information:

BANK: First City Monument Bank

E-MAIL: [email protected]
TEL.: +234-7035502698

NOTE: Our cogent reason for nominating this bank is because other
commercial banks have not lived up to their expectations. So this is
a trusted and tested bank for this purpose.

Contact the officer in charge immediately on receipt of this mail and
he will surely meet your needs.
