The scam



I am MR. MICHEAL DUKE, Chairman Debt Reconciliation Committee of the
office of the presidency, I have been directed by His Excellency, the
President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (MUHAMMADU BUHARI), SFF,
GCRF), to bring to your immediate notice and urgent attention that
this new Government understand your plight, the huge amount of money
you have spent and all the disappointments you have suffered in the
past to get your contract fund paid to you. Due to what we described
as selective payment and incessant demand of excessive fee by some
unscrupulous and corrupt erstwhile officials in charge of foreign
contract payment in the past.

However, upon assumption of office by this Democratic Elected
Government, series of special meeting were held home and abroad with
some leaders of the World Monetary Institution e.g. World Bank Group,
International Monetary Fund (IMF) Paris and London Club of Creditors,
European Economic Community ( E .E. C.) and envoy's of our
Correspondence International Bank of Settlement Worldwide affiliated
with the Central Bank of Nigeria. The purpose of this special meeting
is to (i) rebuild Nigeria Economy (ii) pay all Foreign Debts.

In this regards, and due to the good and positive results we receive
from this special meeting a Total sum of US$2.5 Billion U.S. Dollars
have been approved from the supplementary Budget Bill which was
approved by the Upper House of assembly recently to pay all foreign
Contractors whose payment have been hanging since 1989.

In order to show the World that Nigerian is a truly Democratic and
Transparent Government, this New Government has decided to give all
Foreign Contractors 100% assurance that in 48 Banking Hours their
contract Fund will be effected to their nominated Bank Account.

The Government of Nigeria inaugurated the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC) under the full guidance of the World Bank Group who
is to check the progress of the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC) and see to it that every Contractor receive his/her
money immediately the Contractor has contacted the (NNPC) and the
(NNPC) have been empowered to effect all payments previously ape
proved by the past Regimes/Administrations which their payment were
not effected.

This morning a Telex Signal attached with a Presidential Instruction
Stamped and Signed by the President have being sent to (NNPC) to
contact you for the payment of your Contract Fund and two other
Contractors within 48 Hours.

You are however,strongly advised for the interest of your person, your
esteemed Company to Contact the Chairman, Contract Award Committee, MR
FRED NZE on Tel: +234- 7010058105
for the immediate payment of your Contract Fund within the next 48
Banking Hours.

The Central Bank of Nigeria or other Financial Institutions does not
have the power to effect your payment without the due clearance from
the highest body which is the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
(NNPC) you are advised to call the (NNPC) on Line: +234- 7010058105.

for the immediate payment of your Contract Fund as they are on
stand-by to effect your payment into your nominated Bank account
within the next 48 Banking Hours Immediately, you contact them.

Sir, on behalf of this Democratic Government of Nigeria, I apologize
for any delay you might have encountered in receiving your money in
the past. However, Congratulations in advance!
