DEAR BENEFICIARY,

MY NAME IS MR.JOHN WALKER OF TELEX/COMPUTER DEPARTMENT OF THE AFRI BANK, PORT HARCOURT – NIGERIA. I AM SENDING THIS PRIVATE EMAIL BASED ON THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE TRANSACTION. PLEASE, I WILL LIKE TO ADVISE; IF AFTER GOING THROUGH MY PROPOSAL AND YOU DO NOT ACCEPT IT, KINDLY KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.

AS OF THIS MOMENT, I AM STILL IN SERVICE WITH THE AB NIGERIA. AND I WILL NOT BY ANY MEANS LIKE TO LOSE MY JOB, SO IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED, KEEP THIS TO YOURSELF. I HAVE PUT IN OVER 23 YEARS IN THIS BANK BUT I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO SHOW FOR IT. THIS IS JUST MY OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE SURE THAT I GIVE MY CHILDREN A DECENT TRAINING SINCE MY GOVT WHICH IS CORRUPT HAS REFUSED TO TAKE CARE OF ITS RESPONSIBILITY. INFANT I AM SICK AND TIRED OF EVERYTHING HERE AND I NEED TO GET OUT.

I FOUND OUT THAT YOU ALMOST MET ALL THE STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS IN RESPECT OF YOUR PAYMENT. PLEASE BE EQUALLY ADVISED THAT NO SECURITY COMPANY IN AFRICA CAN HANDLE YOUR CONTRACT PAYMENT/INHERITANCE FUND WITH ANY BANK WITHOUT THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE AFI BANK, NIGERIA.

YOUR PROBLEM IS THAT OF INTEREST GROUP IN THE FEDERAL MINISTRY OF FINANCE THAT IS SUPPOSED TO ORDER TRANSFER OF YOUR FUND WITH THE APPROVAL OF THE AB. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN YOUR PAYMENT AND THAT EXPLAINS WHY YOU RECEIVE EMAILS AND PHONE CALLS FROM DIFFERENT PEOPLE EVERYDAY, THEIR WHOLE GAME PLAN IS TO FRUSTRATE YOU; IN-ORDER FOR YOU TO ABANDON THE PAYMENT AND THEN, THEY WILL BE COMFORTABLE AND BE FREE ENOUGH TO TRANSFER THE FUNDS INTO THEIR OVERSEAS ACCOUNT. THEIR AIM AND TARGET IS NOT THE MONEY YOU ARE GIVING THEM BUT TO FRUSTRATE YOU, HENCE, YOU HAVE LOST TRUST ON WHOM TO BELIEVE TO BE GENUINE.

I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THIS MAY LAST FOR YEARS, YET NOTHING HAPPENS,TO SUM IT UP, I WISH TO ASSURE YOU THAT WITH MY POSITION HERE IN THE TELEX DEPARTMENT, I CAN PUNCH THE COMPUTER AND CREDIT YOUR ACCOUNT STRAIGHT, I CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS UNDER FIVE WORKING DAYS, BUT WE HAVE TO REACH AN AGREEMENT. FIRST OF ALL, YOU HAVE TO LET ME KNOW HOW MUCH YOU WILL GIVE ME AT THE CONSUMMATION OF THIS DEAL.

FINALLY, YOU WILL HAVE TO ACCEPT TO KEEP THIS TRANSACTION STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL IF YOU ACCEPT MY PROPOSAL, KINDLY GET BACK TO ME IMMEDIATELY ON MY PRIVATE MAIL ADDRESS ( [email protected] ) AND CONFIRM YOUR PARTICULARS ON REPLY.

REGARDS,

MR.JOHN WALKER
