The scam

From the Desk of Ms Amal Pepple
Permanent Secretary
Federal Ministry of Finance
Abuja Nigeria.

Attention: shortlisted beneficiaries

Dear Sir/Madam,

This is to inform you that you have been shortlisted for immediate
payment of your overdue fund.
This was announced by the Nigeria Vice President, Prof. Yemi
Osibanjo, in Taormina, Sicily, Italy, during May 2017 G-7 summit.
In an elaborate meeting with Donal Trump(US President), Justin
Trudeau(Canadian Prime Minister ), Uhuru Kenyatta(Kenya?s President),
Hailemariam Desalegn(Ethiopian Prime Minister) and other dignitaries,
Prof. Osibanjo has assured the the presidents, Prime Ministers,
and world dignitaries that he has shortlisted 22 foreign beneficiaries
for immediate payment of their long overdue funds.

The Nigeria and G 7 joint committee resolved that in order to avoid and
check-mate impostors which could sabotage the good effort of this
payment scheme, every beneficiary should be legally
authenticated and accredited for payment by the Federal High Court

Kindly see your name and other shortlisted beneficiaries on the
attached newspaper publicaation.

Note: If you receive this notification and your name is not on the list
in the attached newspaper publication, then you are not eligible. Only
those listed in the attached newspaper publication are eligible for payment.

I await your immediate and positive compliance.

Yours Sincerely,
Ms Amal Pepple
Permanent Secretary
Office of the Minister
Federal Ministry of Finance
Ahmadu Bello way,
Abuja Nigeria.
