National Bank Email Alert : Payment Notification

 

Security Checkpoint: Payment Notification

 

Addressed To:  THE BENEFICIARY

 

 This is to inform you that after thorough evaluation of your Inheritance/Indenture funds transfer release documents and International Monetary Fund assessment report, by Barclay's Bank of UK, Central-Bank of Nigeria and the United Nations Organization, your payment file was forwarded to us to implement

your full payment of Eighteen Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars (US$18,750,000.00) which they have been trying to convey to you through some of their paying banks in Europe, Africa and Asia including credit cards, ATM cards, checks, and cash box/consignments that were being sent to you; which were either seized by the US Customs & Border Protection, Immigration, Homeland Security, or blocked by IMF, FBI, IRS or some other financial monitoring organizations owing largely to tax evasion, money laundering policy/regulation violation and general transfer omissions.

 

The Audit reports sent to us from the UN Head Quarters shows that you have been going through dire processes, paying a lot of money to see to the release of your funds, as we discovered that most of these financial institutions which were in charge of your funds release were requesting for various certificates, including Money Laundering certificates, Non residential tax certificates, Anti-Terrorism documents, delivery fees, security charges, and endless list of non-existing transfer charges and bills which are simply outrageous and unnecessary.

 

However your funds has been moved to EH National Bank, Washington Branch, for claims as you have met-up with the transfer requirements and do not need to purchase or procure any more documents to complete your transfer, you are therefore advised to stop any further communications with anybody or correspondence outside this office to avoid cancellation of your inheritance fund by the UN International Payments Office.

The only thing you are required to do is contact our payments office and open a checking-account with us to enable you enroll for online-banking to facilitate your fund transfer process.

 

For further details and assistance on this Remittance Notification, kindly forward your CONTACT ADDRESS, TELEPHONE and FAX NUMBERS to our claims department by replying this mail.

 

Sincerely

 

EH National-Bank

Claims and Verification Department

Security Checkpoint: This email includes a Security Checkpoint. The information in this section lets you know this is an authentic communication from EH National Bank. Remember EH National Bank will never ask you for sensitive banking information through email.

GOOD DAY,
 
I AM DR. SARAH O. ALADE, THE ACTING GOVERNOR OF THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA, RESUMED OFFICE ON THE 20TH DAY IN FEBRUARY FROM MALLAM SANUSI LAMIDO WHO GOT SUSPENDED FROM OFFICE OVER WHAT IS TERMED FINANCIAL RECKLESSNESS.
 
I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH MY RECORDS AS INHERITED FROM MY PREDECESSOR, AND YOUR RECORD REVEALS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ON A PENDING FUND TRANSFER FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS.
 
THIS PIECE OF INFORMATION IS AIMED AT INFORMING YOU THAT THE PRESIDENCY ACTUALLY ORDERED THE IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF YOUR FUND LONG AGO, IF ALL REQUIREMENTS ARE MET UP WITH, BUT THE DELAY IN RELEASING THIS FUND WAS ON THE GREEDY NATURE OF THE THEN CBN GOVERNOR AND HIS CABINETS WHILE IT WAS REPORTED THAT YOUR FUND HAD BEEN TRANSFERRED TO YOU, INVESTIGATION SHOWS THAT ALL THE INTEREST YIELDED BY YOUR FUND IN OUR POSSESSION HAVE BEEN WRONGLY DIVERTED.
 
IF YOUR FUND IS STILL OF A MEANING, THEN IT IS RIGHTLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET BACK IN TOUCH WITH ME AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN SO AS TO EXPEDITE THE TRANSFER OF YOUR FUND. I WILL NOT GO ABOUT MAKING MOUTH-WATERING PROMISES REGARDING THE SAID FUND, BUT ALL I CAN ASSURE IS THAT YOUR FUND IS REGISTERRED TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS AND IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR TRANSFER.
 
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE AT THIS POINT THAT THE ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC) ARE FULLY INVOLVED IN THIS CASE AND THIS AUTOMATICALLY BANISHES YOU FROM DEALING WITH ANY OFFICE REGARDING ANY ILLICIT MONETRY-RELATED ISSUE.
 
I LOOK TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON AND FURTHERMORE, WELCOME ANY REPORT OF ANY SUSPECTED FRAUDULENT OFFICE WITHIN AND AROUND FINANCIAL INSTITUTION OF THE FEDERATION.
 
YOURS IN SERVICE
DR SARAH O. ALADE
AG. GOV. CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA
