The scam

Attn: Sir/Madam

I write to bring to your notice that I have been appointed to be the
new Foreign remittance officer of Central Bank Of Nigeria in charge of
all over-due contracts/inheritance payments.

In view of this, I want to let you know that the total sum that has
been approved to pay to you is USD$35.5M (Thirty Five Million Five
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only). I have been mandated to
ensure all concerned beneficiaries receive their funds.

In furtherance of this, I want to assure you that I will be the one to
take care of all the expenses that will be involved to make sure this
fund gets into your
account. The only thing the you will do as the beneficiary is to
write a promissory note stating that on confirmation of this fund
into your nominated account, that you will part 20% of this total fund
to me which you will have to sign and send a copy to me to legalize it
at the court.

Note that you will only pay for the legalization of this letter at the
court which will cost you the sum of $280 ONLY.On acceptance of this
term, you shoul forward your full information to me for the processing
of your fund payment.

On the contrary, if you are not interested or ready to adhere to this
instruction, please you should not bother to reply this mail.I am only
doing this to boost your chance of receiving your over-due fund
without much stress.

Note that once you have forwarded your information you are advised to
call me so that I will facilitate the payment so that you receive it
before our upcoming election in February this year.

You are to call me on the following number: +234-9026276537.

I am awaiting your urgent response before I proceed.
