RE: PAYMENT ON ACCRUED INTEREST OF US$3.1M

I am REV. MARK DURU, the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR and Head of Swift Transfer
Unit of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc. Lagos-Nigeria

Sometime ago, in our bank your contract money was brought to our bank
from Nigerian Apex Bank, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (C.B.N) and after
some period, this money was taken back to the Federal Government
treasury. For the period of time this money was in our bank, it
generated an interest of US$ 3.1 Million, which we are about to be pay
to you via KTT wire transfer to your account.

For your information and advice, you need to hasten up to pick this
Fund because from time to time the C.B.N auditors do come to our bank
to cross-check our files and our financial update, the earlier you
comply with the demands of the delivery of the fund, the faster the
action, because the CBN officials wants the accrued interest to be
paid to them but we refused, so when they find out that this interest
fund is still in our bank they will want to call back the money to the
Federal Government treasury.

What we need from you now is any form of your identification for
example; your international passport or youre drivers license, then
your telephone and fax number for easy communication with your account
details.

As a matter of fact we dont have enough time to waste since we have
wasted time in contacting our respective customers, so try and comply
with the entire necessary requirement for remittance.

Contact me on our official telephone expecting your immediately response.

Yours Sincerely,

REV MARK DURU
DIRECTOR UNION BANK OF
NIGERIA PLC
