The scam

Dr Tunde Lemo
Director Foreign
Operation Dept (CBN)



After waiting to hear from you or your Nigerian and Foreign partners
for sometime now. I decided to make this direct approach to you in
order not to let it be as if I have anything in mind against you. I do
not know if you have asked yourself why each time the release of this
fund is approved, all of a sudden, the payment will be stopped or one
problem or the other will come up. If you have not asked this question
or you do not know, this is an opportunity for me to tell you.

Some time ago, your Nigerian and Foreign partners, I mean the people
that introduced you to the project approached me through my dear wife
who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance and requested me to
assist them conclude a money transfer deal they had with you, they
requested me to assist them by removing the original Next ?of- Kin's
name and bank particulars from Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Vetting
and replacing them with your name and your bank details in order to
make you appear as the rightful Next ?of- Kin and the true beneficiary
of this fund. I agreed on conditions that they would pay me
US$100,000.00 as soon as your name appears as the Next ?of- Kin and
the true beneficiary. I did as agreed and demanded to be paid but your
partners started telling me stories.

They even told me that you promised to send money to me, do you know
that up till now, I have not received a single cent from them and have
not set my eyes on any of them and I was reliably informed that they
have moved the fund to London, so that they will cash it over there.
This is why I decided to hear from you since your name has been
enlisted. But based on their attitude, I decided to stop the fund
release movement to London because I cannot be denied of my right in
my own office considering the risk as it might affect my job.

Secondly, I know the source of the fund, that you are not the rightful
Next ?of- Kin and the true beneficiary, though I am the only person
privileged to know this information and it is a fact. Why I am making
this clear to you is that I can see that you are still making efforts
in order to conclude this transaction.

Now I am ready to forget the past. I do not need the US$100,000 any
longer from you but a good compensation from your mind. I need your
assurance that your colleagues will be totally kept out of this
transaction. I know that none of them is aware of my new approach to

Stop spending your money unnecessarily to them both here and overseas
because you will not receive this money without my hand in it. I
personally did the work at the beginning and only I can perform it.
The secret is that your partners failed to STAMP-DUTY YOUR NEXT-OF-KIN
PAYMENT DOCUMENTS and it is the true fact.

Finally, I need your promise that no official of the Central Bank of
Nigeria or your partners will be aware of my involvement in this
regard because of my position. Now re-assure me that you will be
willing to compensate me. That you will assist my wife to establish a
foreign account in your country where my compensation will be lodged
in. Also KTT FUND RELEASE APPROVAL DOCUMENTS will be sent to you for
endorsement after which I will remit the money within 72 hours. I am a
man of my words, if you are ready to conclude this business with me,

kindly contact me so that we can have a chat over this issue once and for all.

N/B: I will like to inform you again based on the fact that you are
not the rightful Next ?of- Kin and the true beneficiary, which I am
the only one privileged to know this. I will transfer this fund to
fulfill my words So what you are expected is to follow my directives
and instructions.

Firstly you will assure me of 100% confidentiality, secondly, write a
promissory note that once I make this transfer you will as well return
my agreed percentage, thirdly, you will assist me secure a nice school
for my son over there. I stand to assure you that you have my word on
this. I shall help you by making sure that this fund is transferred
into your account. You know the truth and if you keep dealing with
wrong people that are deceiving you, you will only have yourself to
blame. I have told you sincerely that nobody can get this fund for you
because I have blocked every loop hole that no one can get it for you
without my consent, which I refer to the bad behavior from those
criminals throughout the time we were processing this payment, I
therefore urge you to forget about them and forge ahead for better
without remembering the past.

And as you have assured me that you will come out with sincere mind
and be plain to me I will help and make this possible under five (4)
banking days and it will not cost us much but a little because I am in

As you have promised not to disappoint me, keep it secret, do away
with those your Nigerian and London partners. I will assist in every
necessary way and transfer this fund to you within four banking days.
I am telling you again for the second time, you will today apply for
legalization of your account in the Federal Court of Justice here so
as to enable us transfer without further delay.

You are lucky that you came in when we are about finishing the
compilation of this payment batch for the last quarter. Now you have
to be careful to avoid any dent and irregularities on your file, that
is a fact.

Lastly, If I hear or discover that you disclose this information to
anyone of your Local and Foreign partners, I promise you that this
fund will never get to your Bank Account as long as I am alive.

I wait to hear from you immediately so that we will discuss at length
and I will give more light in respect of this transaction.

Best Regard,
Dr Tunde Lemo
