The scam

From the office of:
The Attorney General of the Federation
And Minister for Justice,
Federal Ministry Of Justice,


Date: 23th May, 2017.


After the weekly federal executive council meeting, presided over by the
president himself, President Muhammadu Buhari, the federal government of
Nigeria is not happy about unpaid foreign debts, some of which has been
long over due and has dragged for too long, some running into years.

We discovered from our investigations, that this was as a result of
inefficiency on the part of the commercial banks, which hitherto, had
handled this project in the past, unsuccessfully. The federal government of
Nigeria, seriously frowns at this ugly development and cannot fold its arms
and watch its name being tarnished in the international community, hence
this urgent/concrete step to save our dear foreign beneficiaries and our

We have also discovered with great displeasure, the series of demands by
these banks and their cohorts, thereby subjecting our beneficiaries to
untold extortion. The federal government has thus mandated this office to
issue an AFFIDAVIT from the highest court of the land(The Supreme Court),
to waive all payments of any sort at the banks before transferring
beneficiaries' funds, including cost of transfer charges and other fees
until your fund hits your bank account.

We have thus reached a compromise with the transferring banks and have
taken up the cost of transfer and telex charges running into thousands of
dollars, this will serve as a respite to our beneficiaries.

This vital document(AFFIDAVIT), will bear a copy of either your driver's
licence or international passport for security reasons and shall be duly
authenticated also at the supreme court of Nigeria. This is part of our
fight against corruption and to redeem our image in the

You are therefore urgently requested to furnish us with the following:

1. Your full personal details, names and address...................
Telephone Number.
2. Your full banking details, where you wish your fund to be wired.
3. Your total contract/inheritance)--please indicate if your payment
is for contract or inheritance.
4. Total amount expected
5. Copy of your international passport or driver's licence

The above information will enable us prepare the affidavit of waiver in
your favor, and have your fund finally transferred.

I await your urgent response with the above required information, while
counting on your maximum cooperation in our fight against corruption.

Finally, you are warned to stop any further communication with any one,
bank, ministry, demanding for money to transfer your fund in order not to
jeopardize our good efforts.

Note: The above affidavit to be issued to you by this office, is all you
need to have your fund released.

Good luck and be well guided.

Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN)
Attorney General of the Federation
and Minister of Justice,
Federal Republic of Nigeria.
