The scam

Dr Tunde Lemo

Director Foreign

Operation Dept (CBN)




After waiting to hear from you or your Nigerian and Foreign partners

for sometime now. I decided to make this direct approach to you in

order not to let it be as if I have anything in mind against you. I do

not know if you have asked yourself why each time the release of this

fund is approved, all of a sudden, the payment will be stopped or one

problem or the other will come up. If you have not asked this question

or you do not know, this is an opportunity for me to tell you.

Some time ago, your Nigerian and Foreign partners, I mean the people

that introduced you to the project approached me through my dear wife

who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance and requested me to

assist them conclude a money transfer deal they had with you, they

requested me to assist them by removing the original Next ?of- Kin's

name and bank particulars from Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Vetting

and replacing them with your name and your bank details in order to

make you appear as the rightful Next ?of- Kin and the true beneficiary

of this fund. I agreed on conditions that they would pay me

US$100,000.00 as soon as your name appears as the Next ?of- Kin and

the true beneficiary. I did as agreed and demanded to be paid but your

partners started telling me stories.

They even told me that you promised to send money to me, do you know

that up till now, I have not received a single cent from them and have

not set my eyes on any of them and I was reliably informed that they

have moved the fund to London, so that they will cash it over there.

This is why I decided to hear from you since your name has been

enlisted. But based on their attitude, I decided to stop the fund

release movement to London because I cannot be denied of my right in

my own office considering the risk as it might affect my job.

Secondly, I know the source of the fund, that you are not the rightful

Next ?of- Kin and the true beneficiary, though I am the only person

privileged to know this information and it is a fact. Why I am making

this clear to you is that I can see that you are still making efforts

in order to conclude this transaction.

Now I am ready to forget the past. I do not need the US$100,000 any

longer from you but a good compensation from your mind. I need your

assurance that your colleagues will be totally kept out of this

transaction. I know that none of them is aware of my new approach to


Stop spending your money unnecessarily to them both here and overseas

because you will not receive this money without my hand in it. I

personally did the work at the beginning and only I can perform it.

The secret is that your partners failed to STAMP-DUTY YOUR NEXT-OF-KIN

PAYMENT DOCUMENTS and it is the true fact.

Finally, I need your promise that no official of the Central Bank of

Nigeria or your partners will be aware of my involvement in this

regard because of my position. Now re-assure me that you will be

willing to compensate me. That you will assist my wife to establish a

foreign account in your country where my compensation will be lodged

in. Also KTT FUND RELEASE APPROVAL DOCUMENTS will be sent to you for

endorsement after which I will remit the money within 72 hours. I am a

man of my words, if you are ready to conclude this business with me,

kindly contact me so that we can have a chat over this issue once and for all.

N/B: I will like to inform you again based on the fact that you are

not the rightful Next ?of- Kin and the true beneficiary, which I am

the only one privileged to know this. I will transfer this fund to

fulfill my words So what you are expected is to follow my directives

and instructions.

Firstly you will assure me of 100% confidentiality, secondly, write a

promissory note that once I make this transfer you will as well return

my agreed percentage, thirdly, you will assist me secure a nice school

for my son over there. I stand to assure you that you have my word on

this. I shall help you by making sure that this fund is transferred

into your account. You know the truth and if you keep dealing with

wrong people that are deceiving you, you will only have yourself to

blame. I have told you sincerely that nobody can get this fund for you

because I have blocked every loop hole that no one can get it for you

without my consent, which I refer to the bad behavior from those

criminals throughout the time we were processing this payment, I

therefore urge you to forget about them and forge ahead for better

without remembering the past.

And as you have assured me that you will come out with sincere mind

and be plain to me I will help and make this possible under five (4)

banking days and it will not cost us much but a little because I am in


As you have promised not to disappoint me, keep it secret, do away

with those your Nigerian and London partners. I will assist in every

necessary way and transfer this fund to you within four banking days.

I am telling you again for the second time, you will today apply for

legalization of your account in the Federal Court of Justice here so

as to enable us transfer without further delay.

You are lucky that you came in when we are about finishing the

compilation of this payment batch for the last quarter. Now you have

to be careful to avoid any dent and irregularities on your file, that

is a fact.

Lastly, If I hear or discover that you disclose this information to

anyone of your Local and Foreign partners, I promise you that this

fund will never get to your Bank Account as long as I am alive.

I wait to hear from you immediately so that we will discuss at length

and I will give more light in respect of this transaction.

Best Regard,

Dr Tunde Lemo
