The scam

*To Whom It May ConcernHow are you doing? hope this mail will meet you
doing great.However, am contacting you now because there is good news,
there has been some group of criminals/ impostors bringing bad names to our
great Country thereby hijacking/ diverting our Foreign Beneficiaries funds
to a wrong account but as am talking to you now, they have been caught and
sent to jail even your fund is among they tampered that is why you have
been finding it difficult to receive your fund for the past years
now.Honestly the Federal Government of Nigeria/ entire board of Central
Bank of Nigeria are very happy because those bad eggs was fished out and
the president of Federal Republic of Nigeria has mandated/ authorized the
entire board of CBN to release your funds immediately without any delay/
charges.You are hereby urged to come down here in Nigeria to swear an
affidavit and sign off all the necessary approval documents to enable us
release your fund into your account at the same time, this is the only
thing required of you to receive your funds.So, do get back to me

now.Do call me on my direct line +234 802 431 1703 for more
clarification.Thank you.Dr.Roy EkehDirector,ATM Payment Department (CBN) *
