I received the following email. I thought it rather comical.
We the Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI Washington) United States of America have discovered through our intelligent monitoring network in NIGERIA that you were involved in a transaction as either inheritance payment,Lottery or contract payment which have been approved but have not been settled }.We quite understand that this is outstanding payment of yours owned by the Nigerian Government. We are working inline with the International Monetary Fund and United Nation.
This is to officially inform you that we have verified your contract/Lottery/ inheritance file after close monitoring and found out why you have not received your payment, both on your part and on the part of your debtors.
Secondly, we have been informed that you are still dealing with the non officials who are attempting to secure the release of your fund to you. We wish to advise you that this is illegal and you should stop further communication with any of such organization ,because such an illegal act like this can lead to cancellation of your fund.
we have many complains from people who have been scammed around the world hence, after concluding in a meeting with members of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), United nation,World Bank and Nigerian Government we came to a conclusion that every payment will be made through the OCEANIC BANK NIGERIA PLC.
