Yet another scammer who seems to think that telling me his scam comes from Nigeria might make me believe him. This is despite the fact that we all know that Nigeria has a reputation as being the "home" of scammers. (If honest Nigerians are reading this - please don't be offended. I am fully aware that there are many truly honest Nigerians whose lives are made difficult because of the activities of scammers.)

The person who sent this isn't honest. For all I know he might not even be Nigerian. This is a scam. You aren't owed money by the Central Bank of Nigeria (and if you are, why are you reading this - you should be communicating directly with the bank, not replying to random emails).

The scammer wants to take money from you. Delete the email and don't reply.

Attn: Beneficiary,

Payment notification of your funds.

I am Mr. Tony Ede, the secretary to Governor Lamido Sanusi; the executive governor of the central bank of Nigeria (C.B.N), the (parent bank of all commercial banks) here in Nigeria.

I was instructed to initiate contact with you by my boss the executive governor of the central bank of Nigeria (C.B.N) on an urgent issue, kindly note that your funds were re-called and re-deposited into the "federal suspense account" of the CBN last week, because you did not forward you.

My boss the executive governor of the central bank of Nigeria (C.B.N), was visited in his office by three gentlemen today, really these men were unexpected by him because their visit was impromptu. He ask them why they came to see him in person and they said that they came to collect the inheritance/contract funds bill which rightfully belongs to you as shown in your file with us, on your behalf and by your authorization.

Note that they actually tendered some vital documents which proved that you actually sent them for the collection of these funds.
The list of the documents which was tendered to the bank today are:

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

Due to the nature of his job, he cannot afford to make any mistake in releasing these funds to anyone except you who is the recognized true beneficiary to these funds.
My boss asked the men to come back tomorrow so he can verify this fact from you first.Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this payment to these foreigners whom came on yourbehalf.
Kindly direct your response to the private email address of my boss, Gov. Lamido Sanusi, 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 a phone number he can reach you on in your response. Email:
