RE: DELIVERY OF YOUR ATM CARD
This is to officially inform you that we have verified your contract /
inheritance file presently on my desk, and found out that you have not received
your payment due to your lack of co-operation and not fulfilling the obligations
given to you in respect to your contract /inheritance payment. Secondly, you are
hereby advised to stop dealing with some non-officials in the bank as it is an
illegal act. This office is given the SOLE authority by the Presidential
Committee on foriegn payments to release all fund without any further delay to
all bonafide beneficiaries
After the board meeting held at our headquarters, we have resolved in finding a
solution to your problem and as you may know, we have arranged your payment
through our SWIFT CARD PAYMENT CENTRE in Europe, America and Asia Pacific, which
is the instruction given to us by our president, President Umaru Musa Yar’
Adua (GCFR) Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The presidency also issued an ultimatum to us to deliver fund to beneficiaries
as long as they fulfil all necessary obligations. This card centre will send you
your ATM CARD which you will use to withdraw your money in an ATM MACHINE in any
part of the world, but the maximum is ($3,000) Three Thousand US Dollars (in
three transactions of $1,000) per day. Note that the total funds in your ATM
account is USD $950,000 (NINE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND US DOLLARS).
Meanwhile as demanded by the United Nations money transfer act of 2004,
(section 4, subsection us1138 paragraph 12-13) and the electronic communication
act 2004 (section 8, subsection 24, paragraph k-22c); you are mandated to
provide us with the following details again for verification with what we have
on file before we can proceed in order to make sure we are not paying the wrong
FULL CONTACT ADDRESS:
CELL PHONE NUMBER:
You will be receiving your fund via ATM card which will be sent to you from our
bank headquaters directly to your given address we have on file. Be informed
that you will have to take care of the courier and insurance charges before we
can send your ATM card to you.
It is my pleasure to inform you that you are not the first beneficiary that we
have scheduled to be paid through this method, we have previously paid our
American and Canadian beneficiaries which I have included their tracking numbers
for verifications. Kindly, track it online on www.fedex.com for more
clarification and verification.
The federal government under the ministry of finance with the world bank and
IMF (international monetary fund) has adopted this administrative measure
because of various complains/petitions received from beneficiaries due to the
delays in receieving their contract/inheritance funds/ATM cards as expected..
It might interest you to know that the swift credit card system of payment was
adopted to reduce the administrative protocols as regards (cost of
transfer,vat,taxes and levies). It was adopted to help beneficaries who are
financially down, who are not capable to meet up with the obligation of paying
banks for administrative fees and handling charges. The swift credit card system
will only cost the beneficiary ‘cost of shipment’ via courier company
such as dhl, fedex and ups and insurance of his/her package.
*Delivery fee via Courier Service is $105.
*Insurance Charge: $270
*Total Charge payable: $375
Upon the receipt of payment, your ATM card and your PIN number will be sent to
you immediately via any courier service of your choice to your designated
address. You are to keep your Pin number secret to avoid unwanted access to your
fund in your ATM card. You are not expected to pay any other fee as this is a
one time fee. Do get back to us immediately and we will instruct you on how to
wire the required $375 to proceed.
We would anticipate your information and your willingness to effect the
required payment of USD$375 for us to proceed and have your ATM sent out to you
ASAP. Thanks for your co-operation.
