RE:IMMEDIATE CONTRACT/INHERITANCE CASH PAYMENT
We write to you consequent upon series of complaints from the USA Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), The London Metropolitan Police and other Security agencies from Asia, Europe, Oceania, Antarctica against the Governments of The Great Britain and several African Nations especially Nigeria and South Africa on the alarming rate of scam activities going on in these countries. You can go through our website- http://www.un.org/sg/senstaff_ details.asp?smgID=147
We have met with the Presidents/Heads of States of the affected countries who claimed that they have been doing their bests to ensure that the affected victims/beneficiaries receive their funds after all in their accounts. As directed by our secretary general Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, We are currently working in collaborations with the Government of Ghana and the International Police (Interpol) and have authorized the Central Bank of Ghana (BOG) to immediately effect the payment of compensations of an initial sum of Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (US$20.5 M) as approved by both the Government of Ghana and the United Nations Organization respectively in favor of the affected beneficiaries.
Interestingly, the alarming discovery is that some top Nigerian, Ghanaian and British Government Officials are really the brain behind the misfortunes of the affected beneficiaries including you and are working in collaboration with One Mr. Richard Graves from the USA to frustrate you and other affected persons in the bid to receive your funds and thereafter divert them into their personal accounts.
WE WISH TO INFORM YOU NOW THAT YOUR PAYMENT IS NOW BEING PROCESSED AND WILL BE RELEASED TO YOU AS SOON AS A LETTER OF CONSENT IS RECEIVED FROM YOU WITH SOME RECONFIRMATIONS OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM OUR RECORDS, A COMPENSATION PAYMENT OF US$20,500,000.00 (TWENTY MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS) WILL BE RELEASED TO YOU AS SOON AS WE RECEIVE THE CONSENT LETTER FROM YOU.
PLEASE KINDLY RE-CONFIRM THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION THUS:
(3)DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBER:========================
(6)PROOF OF IDENTIFICATION:=====================
AS SOON AS THE ABOVE REQUISITE INFORMATION IS RECEIVED, YOUR PAYMENT WILL BE MADE TO YOU VIA DIPLOMATIC COURIER CASH DELIVERY IN-ACCORDANCE TO WORLD BANK AND IMF RECOMMENDATIONS OR BY SWIFT PAYMENT THROUGH THE BANK OF GHANA AS THE CASE MAY BE.
NOTE: You are now advised to STOP every communication you have with anyone in respect to your payment in order not to jeopardize our arrangement to effect payment of your fund within 72 banking hours.
We have very limited time to work out payments here in Africa and so would need urgent responses to this message to enable us advise you appropriately.
Ms. Carman L. Lapointe
