RE: NOTIFICATION ON THE IRREVOCABLE AGREEMENT ORDER ON YOUR PAYMENT/ FINAL NOTICE.
Please bear with us for making this initial contact through email, it is due to the urgency of this notification, since we are unable to reach your phone line. This is to officially bring to your notice that we have finally signed an irrevocable agreement order with the United Nations, at the 37th G8 summit which was held26–27 May 2011 in the commune of Deauville, in France. You can check this link to confirm the summit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/37th_G8_summit.
The agreement instruction was for us to settle all enormous outstanding debt burden on our country, in order to enhance our business relationship with the International Community. To that effect, The Federal Ministry of Finance have finally forwarded to my humble office, the names of foreigner's/contractors that have not yet received their payment for some reasons and your name happen to be on the list hence, your payment worth USD8,000.000.00 ( Eight Million Dollars Only) is next on the payment schedule list, for this quarter of the year 2012.
In accordance with the provision act of decree 114 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, on Contract Matters, your contract payment documents have been verified, approved and arrangement is being been made to effect your payment to you within the shortest period of time in our bid to transparency.
Also, it might interest you to know that a Gentleman with name JAMES WHITE from Ohio, USA., already contacted us on your behalf. He forwarded to us his full banking information and presented some documentations evidencing your payment, claiming they were signed personally by you for the release of your payment to him. He further told us that you are seriously sick and presently on a Hospital bed of which she is not even sure, you will survive. Please find below his Banking information for your-re-confirmation:

Lastly, we also want to use this medium to pose a warning/advise to you, should in case you are already dealing with anybody or office posing to be the Central Bank of Nigeria or any fake financial office, we advise that you STOP further contact with them in your best interest and contact only the Skye Bank Plc., with our information accordingly with this e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
