The scam

Dear Beneficiary,

As the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) investigations
carried out by my Office shows that you have been deceived and cheated
by the Nigerian criminals but urge you to work with me if you want to
receive your overdue $35.5 million dollars. To prove that you are the
real beneficiary, I advise you as a matter of urgency to reconfirm
your name, address and phone number to me now so I can cross-check if
it tallies with what we have in our system to avoid any mistakes ok.

Lastly, note that your payment is among the list of claims to be
released this quarter while assuring you that you are dealing with the
real Governor of CBN now and you can be sure that you will receive
your fund if all fund release due processes are completed by you and
if not I will advise you what you should do to receive your fund and
if you fail to comply to my directives then you forget your overdue
$35.5 million dollars forever ok. I am expecting you to respond to
this mail promptly and if you fail then it means that your claim is
fictitious and non-existed and will be treated accordingly.

Mr. Godwin Emefiele,
Executive Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
