OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR.

PAYMENT NOTIFICATION OF YOUR FUNDS.

Attn: Beneficiary,

Hello. We have decided to bring to your attention, the fact that we
have done everything necessary to make sure payments from the debt
remittance account are made to the Bonafide Beneficiaries. I am informing you
of an attempt by some men to collectyour payment on your behalf. I had
to ask them why they came to see me in person and they said that they
came to collect your inheritance/contract funds payment sum of $20M
which rightfully belongs to you as shown in your file with us, on your
behalf and by your authorization.

However, I am writing you this email to find out from you if you
actually sent them. Note that they actually tendered some vital documents
which proved that you actually sent them to collect these funds. Below is
the list of documents which they presented.

1) Letter of administration
2) Order to release
3) High court injunction

Due to the nature of my job, I cannot afford to make any mistake
inreleasing the funds to anyone except you who is the recognized and true
beneficiary to these funds.I want to hear from you before I order the
release of the funds to these men who claim to be your representatives
because they will be back to my office next week. I decided to carry out
this decision based on my work experience and this is a risk I cannot
take because I have not heard anything from you.

Kindly direct your response to the private email address of my
boss,Prof. Charles Soludo, the executive governor of the central bank of
Nigeria Cbn, below for quicker deliberation and response from him on the
release of your funds to you. Please remember to indicate your personal
phonenumber he can reach you on in your response.

Email: prof_c_charlessoludo@myway.com

Note that for security reasons you have been assigned a code/password
which is {TT7270CBN}, please note that this code is the reference number
for your transfer and it’s being disclosed to you alone, guard this
jealously and all your email response should carry this code as the
subject.

Yours faithfully,

Dr. Adamu Isa

Secretary.
To the Governor.
Central bank of Nigeria

This message is a bit similar to ATM FROM CBN, and both invoke the name Soludo. That CBN one only offered $10 million, though. I guess they upped the ante to compensate for our Cadbury-killing weak dollar.

Can you imagine if any of these messages were real? If you suddenly became $10 or $20 million richer? You could kick back! A whole new set of shiny worries…

I'll bet that whoever falls for these scams does indeed imagine the possibilities. Too bad experiencing that pleasant dream is just another step in the scheme.
