Dear Citizen.

Inline with the "Patriot Act", a statute enacted by the United States Government that President George W. Bush signed into law on October 26, 2001. The Act which increases the ability of law enforcement agencies to search telephone, e-mail communications, medical, financial, and other records; eases restrictions on foreign intelligence gathering within the United States; expands the Secretary of the Treasury’s authority to regulate financial transactions, particularly those involving foreign individuals and entities; has prompted us to contact you in respect of your unclaimed fund.

We the Justice Department of the Federal Bureau of Investigations do hereby inform you that in our bid to fight against the ranging terrorist threat facing the United States of America recently, we have registered your unclaimed fund through a Certified Bank Draft with the DELIVERY SHIPPING COURIER COMPANY in the country of fund origin.

This fund was said to have been held by the Central Bank of Nigeria due to your inability to obtain necessary documents and delivery charges required by the Bank and its affiliates in the past. Thus, we sourced that some unscrupulous agents of the terrorist inclined nations have devoted their time using the opportunity to transfer funds into the USA under the disguise that the fund was meant for you the beneficiaries. However, after our investigations, we discovered that you had no involvement in such evil plan that is why we are contacting you to get the fund out of its position before it implicates you.

Note that all the necessary arrangements for the delivery of your $2,000,000.00 Bank Draft has been completed. In your best interest, you are urged to send the following details to the Courier Agent;

*Full Name:
*Contact Address:
*Current Phone Number:

We have paid for the delivery charges. The only money you have to pay to them is $280 (ONLY) for their Security keeping of your Bank draft, we try to pay for that but they insist that such cost can only be paid once the real beneficiary have contacted the Courier Company for security reason.

You are hereby instructed to contact the Operations Manager with the information below and call him immediately you send him an email:

Name: Mr. John Edward

Thank you as we look forward to your cooperation on this very crucial matter.

God Bless America!
