CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA.
Time: 01:40pm Nigerian Time
I write to introduce myself as Mr. Lamido Sanusi, the new Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria. I resume office as the Central Bank of Nigeria Governor on the 3rd of June 2009, taking office from Prof Charles C. Soludo. Since I resume office, I have been having series of meeting with the high and low breed of staff of the Central Bank of Nigeria, regarding why inherited funds and contract payments have not been released to the beneficiaries. My findings show that some corrupt officials have been extorting money from foreigners through various government offices, with involvement of the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria and without transferring any of the funds. These complaints by foreigners got to the president through the United Nations, that was why the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria was forced to resign his appointment as the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria. The Federal Government has just approved all these payments to be paid out
Please re-confirm the following immediately for payment approval:
1) Your full name
2) Phone, fax and mobile number.
3) Company name, position and address.
4) Profession, age and marital status.
5) Copy of valid ID card.
6) Payment sum.
7) Contract number
8) Year of payment approval Please quote this payment codes(CODE:FGN/CBN3124-FILE111-CBN) in all your correspondence or else you will not be recognized as a beneficiary/contractor with this Government and note any further message without my picture should be disregarded to avoid any fraudulent hijack of information or impersonation.
Mr. Lamido Sanusi.
