As the honorable Minister of Nigeria, I work on behalf of the Paying
Bank of Nigeria (Arab national bank ) under the supervision of the
honorable President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria.
We are glad to announce it to you today that the honorable President of
The Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Accountant General of the
Federation have collectively Approved and signed the Order to Release
and Transfer being the certified documentation authorizing us (The
Federal Ministry of Finance) to credit your
nominated Bank Account..

A copy of the Order to Release and Transfer have been forwarded to our
international remittance department for the onward crediting of your
Funds. In other words, we put it to you that we are ready to remit your
Funds into your choice Bank Account because we have a 14 working days
time constrain to Pay-off each beneficiary short-listed to be Paid by
this Ministry. Our Legal Unit have already reviewed your Payment Files
and they have passed it on to my desk for me to Pay you accordingly, so
be rest assured that
you will receive your due pay as soon as possible. Officially, you will
receive your due pay via an "Electronic Wire Transfer" which will enable
your Funds reflect in your choice Bank

Account within 48hrs after effect. This mode of Payment is defined as
one of the best and safest mode to remit huge pay internationally as it
is absolutely different from the usual swift transfer which takes longer
time. Most Banks within the United States of America, Europe and other
developed countries operate with the "Electronic Wire Transfer" for
international transfers because it is a recent innovation in the Banking
industry. Certainly we shall transfer your valued US$10.5M from the
Sundry/Suspense Account of the Federal Government of Nigeria being the
official Account for international/foreign

Payments/debts. A Sundry/Suspense Account can be defined as a secret
Account owned by a government and operated by certain assigned
government officials being the authorized signatories whom must sign
before pay can be remitted from such account. For this very account no
form of direct withdrawals can be made from it except a Bank to Bank
wire transfer which must be Approved by the honorable President being
the principal signatory to the account. Consequent to the fact that I am
responsible to Pay you, it is still my duty to enlighten you on the
accurate steps to take in order for you to gain full possession of this
said Funds being Approved in your name. In the combat against fraud,
Funds diversion and Funds delay, we have re-lengthily ensured that
several foreign beneficiaries have been Paid accordingly in order to
retain and rekindle our country's reputation on the global map because
this recent government dispensation is focused and targeted to relieve
all foreign debts as mandated by The Senate, The National House of
Assembly, The Federal Executive Council (F.E.C), Code of Conduct Bureau
and The Federal Ministry of Finance (F.M.F). Already, alot of foreign
beneficiaries have been Paid by this Ministry so yours will not be an
exception considering the fact that the honorable President have
Approved your due pay today dated 11th
january 2017
