Dear Customer

Approval on your inheritance part payment by the New Acting President

After the inaugural meeting with the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo

approved for immediate part payment

I wish to use this opportunity to congratulate you that your name is

among the approved list of beneficiaries forwarded to my office today

for immediate part payment of US$5,700,000.00 by the Acting President

of the Federation. This payment exercise is aimed at putting back

smiles and hope to our country's numerous contractors and

beneficiaries who has been frustrated and lost thousands of dollars to

the hands of past administrations and fraudsters in their attempt to

receive their lawful inheritance.

The Federal Government under the new administration wish to render an

apology to those beneficiaries who has suffered an untold hardship due

to the amount of money lost to the hands of these fraudsters who are

now in the watch eyes of the FBI and EFCC to arrest, prosecute them

and recover all the looted funds from them. We are sincerely sorry and

Government will do everything within the law to restore that trust and

confidence which is the purpose of this payment exercise.
