    LOST COUNT OF THE NUMBER OF TIMES I HAVE RECEIVED THIS EMAIL FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES

    From: Chief Hon,John Bright <mailoffice584@gmail.com>

    Sent: 22 December 2019 07:13

    Subject: From Department to Federal Ministry of Finance.

    This is to inform you that in the course of my investigation as director of payment verification / implementation committee I came across your name as unpaid fund beneficiary in the record of the central bank. My committee was set up by the attorney general to verify and scrutinize all outstanding debts owed to our foreign beneficiaries in accordance to the information received from the United States government And European ,Asia Empowered By United Nations over unpaid huge debts owed to United States citizens and European ,Asia Citizens as well and Others Countries .

    Having seen your file and my further questioning to the officials of the central bank as to why your payment is still pending reveals the rot and corruption in the system. The bank officials told me that the reason why you haven’t received payment is due to your inability to pay for the required charges for transfer of funds to your account. When I asked them why they didn’t deduct the said charges from your principal sum, I was given the flimsy excuse that you never authorized them to do so. When I put the question across to them if they ever advised you that such charges could be deducted from your principal fund,the answer I got was no. Now, if you do not tell this beneficiary that such charges could be deducted from his or her principal fund, how will he or she know that such options are available for such beneficiaries.

    From my investigation I discovered that these bank officials deliberately refused to let the charges be deducted from your principal fund because they want your fund to remain trapped in the bank, while they continue to extort money from beneficiaries under some flimsy excuse. You do not need to pay any money to any official, all you are required to do is swear to an affidavit at the federal high court of Benin Republic, authorizing the bank to deduct all charges from your principal fund and transfer the balance of funds after deduction to your bank account. If you have spent any money in the past in your quest for payment, kindly let me know so that I can follow this up.

    You can reach me on my email address for directive on how you can get the deduction done as soon as possible and get payment.

    Yours sincerely,

    Chief Hon,John Bright,

    The Chaiman of Treasury

    Department to Federal

    Ministry of Finance

    "Attention:

    There is no way we can send a payment to you without the transfer process to be completed, therefore you should send the processing fee and I will complete processing your payment and you will have your payment in your country before we close at work today okay.

    Thanks.

    Mr. Michael Toure.
