The scam

Supreme Court of Nigeria
Three-Arms Zone
P.M.B. 308. Garki Abuja
PHONE: +234-7016736950.

Dear Unpaid Beneficiary,

This is to inform you that in the course of my investigation as director of
payment verification / implementation committee I came across your name as
unpaid fund beneficiary in the record of the central bank of Nigeria and
other banks that are suppose to get your funds released to you. My
committee was set up by the payment reconciliation committee to verify and
scrutinize all outstanding debts owed to our foreign beneficiaries in
accordance to the information received from the United States government
and other countries over unpaid huge debts owed to Foreigners.

Having seen your file and my further questions to the officials of the
Central Bank of Nigeria and ministry of finance as to why your payment is
still pending reveals the rot and corruption in the system. The bank
officials told me that the reason why you haven't received your payment is
due to your inability to pay for the required charges for transfer of funds
to your account. When I asked them why they didn't deduct the said charges
from your principal sum, I was given the flimsy excuse that you never
authorized them to do so. When I put the question across to them if they
ever advised you that such charges could be deducted from your principal
fund,the answer I got was no. Now, if you do not tell this beneficiary that
such charges could be deducted from his or her principal fund, how will he
or she know that such options are available for such beneficiaries.

From my investigation I discovered that these bank officials deliberately
refused to let the charges be deducted from your principal fund because
they want your fund to remain trapped in the bank, while they continue to
extort money from beneficiaries under some flimsy excuse. You do not need
to pay any money to any official, all you are required to do is swear to an
affidavit at the federal high court of Nigeria, authorizing the bank to
deduct all charges from your principal fund and transfer the balance of
funds after deduction to your bank account. If you have spent any money in
the past in your quest for payment, kindly let me know so that I can follow
this up. You can reach me on my phone or email for directive on how you can
get the deduction done as soon as possible and get your payment also.

Yours sincerely,

Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad
