Subject: IMPORTANT AND URGENT FROM UN SPECIAL AGENT
Date: Thu, 1 Dec 2011 17:05:33 +0100 (CET)
UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL AGENT ASSIGNED TO NIGERIA-AFRICA. From: Mrs.
Paulette Beal Dear , Though I don't know much about you or how you will
take this message but I have decided to get across to you through this
medium irrespective of all odds since I have the mandate of my superior
Mr. Moon and the World Bank President. I was appointed to come to
Nigeria by my superior Mr. Ban Ki-Moon and the World Bank President to
effect the release of your UN/WORD BANK approved compensation payment
of $950,000.00 which has been approved to you since last year.
Our intelligence reported reveals that this fund has been fluctuating
off and on transit until it was intercept and returned to the
US-Nigeria Treasury Account. Mrs. Inga-Britt an ex- UN member was sent
to Nigeria Africa previously to tackle this problem but she compromised
and failed. Instead of tacking this prevailing problem, she joined Dr.
Lamido Sanussi, Dr. Tunde Lemo, Rev. Johnson Aku, Dr. Mrs. Veronica
Amadi, and the other Nigerian evil bank executives to defraud you and
make you believe that this fund was not real so that they can later
divert it to their already joint opened account in Costa Rica. That is
why she was sacked and retired finally from the office (UN). Since my
arrival, I have met with President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, the
Nigerian Finance Minister and their Chief Justice of the Federation,
the Accountant General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and they have
all endorsed the immediate release of this payment to you without
delay. I have programmed your fund for immediate payment through a well
tested and trusted bank in Nigeria which I will not release the name to
you for security reason until you have proved that you are the bonafide
beneficiary of this approved compensation fund. Lastly, for your
verification and confirmation, attached with this message is a scan
copy of my United Nations Working ID card while you get back to me on
this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information
on what to do. Sincerely yours, Mrs. Paulette Beal.
