Dear Customer

Approval on your inheritance part payment by the New Acting President

After the inaugural meeting with the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo
had on Tuesday 27th June 2017 during which the new appointed Ministers
were given task by the Acting President to perform creditably and
regain the image of our country from the International Community,
where all debts owed to foreign contractors and individuals where
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.

Therefore, in order for us to complete this payment successfully to
the rightful beneficiaries, we require your cooperation to follow our
stipulated directives and provide us with the following information

other communication to any other person, financial institutions or
organization claiming to pay or assist you in this your inheritance
payment as New Acting President has stopped/cancel every other
arrangement in the past and handed all inheritance/contract payment to
this office and every communication should be kept confidential till
