    Here is the email that came into my junk email box on the 9th of June 2020 - and it purported to come from the President of Nigeria himself -:

    Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation


    I must apologies for the inconvenient my previous government has cause you to received your contract funds from the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, (NNPC) Well now that everything is under my control globally you can see how we are fighting corruption all over the world, I find out that your due payment is still kept awaiting to be transfer to you there in your country. Your total funds with interest with the NNPC is about $450,000,000 and I want you to note that I have given an order to the accountant general in charge to issue out this payment to you with immediately effect after which all legal protocol has been meant including the transfer fee.

    You are advise to pay all charges imposed on your funds for clearance purpose and transfer,then the accountant general will have to employed the services of a lawyer on your behalf to signed all legal document on your behalf and be informed that there is no way this fee can be deducted from the principal funds due to new banking policy here,take note of this again ad again that there is no way this fee can be deducted from the principal funds.

    Note:The total fee to pay to get all this document for the release of this funds $450,000,000.00 is about US$1,700.000.00 United Stated Dollars.

    Below are the list of document needed to procured and signed before your funds $450,000.000.00 can be transferred to your bank account successfully without any international banking impediment and the total cost of the document is $1,700.000.00 and I will advise you to make the $1,700,000.00 transfer installment due to transfer policy everywhere in the world so it will be wise to get the $1,700,000,00 transfer 3 times to make things easier for you there in your country.

    By transferring $500,000.00 first then next transfer should be $500,000.00 before the final payment will be $700,000.00 without no problem OK .

    DIST,= Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Transfer Certificate

    International Remittance File,

    Irrevocable Presidential Permit (IPP),

    Homeland Clearance Certificate,

    Deduction is impossible from the principal funds so take note of that as earlier been told.

    So contact Central Bank Governor and asked him the bank account to start transferring the fee US$1,7000.000.00 to bit by bit for the document mentioned above so to procured the document before the your funds $450,000,000.00 can be release .
