RE: IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF YOUR OVERDUE FUNDS
After a joint meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the senate Committee on Foreign Debts reconciliation and the Presidential Payment and Implementation Panel on Contract/ inheritance funds under Category, which was addressed and headed by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, UMARU ISSA YARADUA, it became imperative to contact you on the subject matter.
This meeting was initiated as part of the recent image laundering scheme of the federalgovernment of Nigeria. During the meeting, so many negative reports were tabledown behalf of our numerous contractor and foreign personels on how unfairly they have been treated and extorted by some corrupt officials who were vested with the authority to pay
them their entitlements. The most annoying and irritating aspect of it all is that they could not effect payment to these foreign beneficiaries after subjecting them to so much stress and trauma.
To this regards, this office has been given the SOLE authority by the President and Commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the federal republic of Nigeria to handle and release all contract/inheritance funds and you are therefore advised NOT to contact ANY OTHER OFFICE to avoid further complications in your payment file.
