The scam

Our Ref: EOP/FMF/AGF/101X49-1/2017

Good Day

In view of the directive by the president of Federal Republic of Nigeria, to settle all long outstanding foreign debts, I wish to convey to you that your long outstanding payment has been irrevocably approved today by my office for immediate release into your bank account. However, following incessant complaints by our foreign contractors on the delay of their payment by our Apex Bank, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) after years of successful execution/completion of their contracts, we have concluded arrangement with Ecobank Ghana Limited The Pan-African Bank to assist us with the payment of all our long outstanding debts including yours.

Therefore, for the avoidance of transferring your fund into a wrong bank account, we advise you to re-confirm your current receiving bank details to the Remittance Director of Ecobank Ghana Limited, Mr. Philip Ayew on his official Fax Number: +233-272-260559 or Email: for immediate release of your fund. He can also be contacted through his direct telephone number: +233-054-7143220

However, our attention has been drawn to the nefarious activities of people purportedly acting under cover as ministerial officials and financial bodies to defraud our esteemed contractors/creditors. Therefore, we strongly advise that you desist from further communication with person(s) claiming to have the mandate to effect your payment, as our government will not be liable for any loss accruing to you due to your negligence in adhering to this instruction.

Thanking you for your understanding and cooperation.


Yours Faithfully,
Kemi Adeosun
Minister for Finance and Economic Planning, Federal Republic of Nigeria.
