    Our Ref: RTB /SNT/STB

    I am Agent Frank Edward from the United States of America sent to Nigeria to investigate the compensation fund by the newly elect president of Nigeria, His excellency President Goodluck E. Jonathan. The newly elect president met with the FBI, CIA and the UN, to bring an initiative of compensation, which it was concluded that an FBI Agent will be assigned to travel down to Nigeria and make sure that no innocent citizens of any country in every part of the world is being swindled through this act .

    This compensation is to be made by the Federal government of Nigeria and some other related bodies like the Nigeria National Petroleum Co-operation (NNPC), Dagote Group of Companies (DGC), Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the United Nations, due to the scam the citizens of Nigeria has done on the internet and other criminal acts to rip people off their money. The Federal government of Nigeria placed an advert on their local TV stations, Radio stations, Websites and even hand bills. Due to the advertisement, your e-mail address must have been compromised which has caused you to receive a lot of unsolicited e-mails. We have placed a law suit against the the Federal government claiming that you were never paid the sum of $2,500,000.00 US Dollars, they have hereby pleaded and requested that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should contact you on their behalf to immediately proceed towards sending the compensation as stated above.

    After our thorough investigation, you are hereby approved to receive the compensation prize as we have verified the entire transaction to be Safe and 100% risk free, due to the fact that the funds have been deposited at the United Bank for Africa, you will be required to settle the following bills directly to the United Bank for Africa in-charge of this transaction which is located in the Lagos Island, Nigeria. According to our discoveries, you were required to pay for the following –

    * Deposit Fee
    * Transfer Fee

    The total amount for everything is $350.00 (Three Hundred and Fifty USD only.) We have tried our possible best to indicate that this $350.00 should be deducted from your compensation prize but we found out that the funds have already been deposited at the United Bank for Africa and cannot be accessed by anyone except the legal owner (you), the winner; therefore you will be required to pay the required fee’s to the Agent in-charge of this transaction via Money Gram only.

    You will also be required to request Money Gram details on how to send the required $350.00 in order to immediately transfer your prize of $2,500,000.00 USD from United Bank for Africa, also a Reference Code will be sent to your Phone Number by the FBI for Beneficiary’s confirmation purpose. Please endeavour to make the code private and confidential for which your funds remain void without providing the Confirmation code sent to you by FBI.

    This letter will serve as proof that the Federal Bureau Of Investigation is authorizing you to pay the required $350.00 ONLY to Agent Frank Edward via information in which he shall send to you, if you do not receive your compensation prize of $2,500,000.00, we shall be held responsible for the loss and this shall invite a penalty of $5,000 which will be made PAYABLE ONLY to you (The Winner).

      Unfortunately, there are some people that fall for the scam whether it’s greed or they are naive. I’m sure there are other reasons as well.

      Thanks for reading.
