Dear Beneficiary.

This letter is written to you in order to change your life from today. I
am Dr Remi O Oni the Director International Remittance Department of
this Bank, my Boss, Mr. Jacobs M.Ajekigbe, the Managing director/CEO of
this bank is now on compulsory leave and all power has been vested on me to
make all international payments.

Also, due to reported cases of corrupt practices in other Nigeria Banks
including the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Federal Government has
revoked/cancelled all power vested on those banks and has appointed our
bank (First Bank of Nigeria Ltd) to make all foreign payments.
Be informed that the Federal Government have approved the release of
part-payment of$6.5 Million(Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars)out of
your total funds, which has been in this bank for many years unclaimed
because my boss Mr. Jacobs Ajekigbe,in collaboration with the Governor of
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have refused to tell you the truth on how to
claim your fund, this is because he has been using the interest accumulated
from your fund every year to enrich himself without your knowledge.

I want to help you pull out this fund to your bank account using the
easiest and the quickest method, which have not been made known to you
before. By this method, you will open a domiciliary account with this bank
(First Bank of Nigeria Ltd), your fund would be lodged into this domiciliary
account and your fund will be paid in directly to any bank of your choice.
After the transfer, you will confirm the fund in your bank account within
5 hours the same day. No Cost of Transfer (COT) and no stoppage from any
Government departments as the transfer will be done within the bank alone
and it is very safe.

The method which was introduced to you before is the Telegraphic Transfer
(TT) for which confirmation was 48 hrs, because of the time factor,
petitions could come from various organizations stopping your payment and
asking you to pay huge fee which would be difficult for you to pay so that
they can benefit from the huge interest your fund generates while still in
the Bank.

This method is not safe for you because it is not done within the bank
alone as information of the payment would be sent to the Central Control Unit
(CCU) of the Federal Ministry of Finance and office of the Accountant
General of the Federation.

As a good Christian, I have nothing to gain by keeping your fund, I want
to assist you receive your fund before my boss resumes office. You have to
follow up and work with me now, so keep this very confidential because of
fraudsters and impostors who go about presenting various bank accounts in
order to divert another beneficiary's fund.

your present/valid information we enable us open the domiciliary account for
you which your fund will be first transfer into that newly opened account,before
the onward transfer to any bank account of your choice.

This information is needed.

Phone Number:
Your Age
Your Occupation

Awaiting your swift response.

Yours Sincerely,
Dr Remi O. Oni
Director International Remittance Department)
