Tel: +229-69654674.

Dear Beneficiary,


As a result of the multi-lateral agreement which we recently entered into with the Federal Government of Nigeria and the United Nations (Global Intervention Fund Unit), we are therefore contacting you with details of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

Your unpaid inheritance, contract/Lottery money which has stood in the balance for so many years, and which is in the tune of Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$10.5m), has been directed to be released to you through, Bank of Africa Republic of Benin via ATM CARD payment or bank to bank wire as you may deem fit. We were mandated to carry out this duty, due to various complains/petitions received by the above mentioned government and agencies from beneficiaries concerning delays in receiving their payment from banks/ministries in Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Togo etc. Note that you where contacted because your name was shortlisted among those yet to be paid off.

Before we proceed, you are advised to respond to this email, stating your full details, and other necessary information that will ultimately aid us in the speedy processing of your payment

Thanks for your prompt attention and response.


Mr.Favor Uche

Group Head, Global Payments.
