Therefore, recipients of emails claiming they need to send personal information in order to receive their compensation, are asked to delete them because they are being sent by scammers.

Subject: gat back to me as


We were mandated by the Federal Government of Nigeria last week so effect the release the sum of US$250,000.00 to each affected (SCAM) victim around the globe under the surveillance of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (E.F.C.C) which your email was included in the list and we have 14 working days to round up this payment as directed by the (E.F.C.C) Chairman .

Last week, we started the dispatching of Automated Teller Machine (ATM) Cards to the affected victims who responded to our notification letter earlier. So you have the opportunity to claim your US$250,000.00 compensation fund through (ATM) Card if you will comply by our legal directives without any delay.

For us to achieve this successfully, you will have to seize further communication with any body outside this office to avoid repeating your past mistakes or losing your funds to criminals after receiving it.

For more information, we will advise that you call or send SMS to + 234 816 9 2603.

Your Sincerely,

Mr.Abdullahi Ibrahim,

Executive Director,

Public Sector,

First Bank Nigeria Ltd.
