Attention Beneficiary.

We write in regards to your delayed Contract/Inheritance Funds in the
sum of Ten Million, Five Hundred United States Dollars
(US$10,500,000.00) which you are yet to receive as a result of your
inability to raise the required fee(s) to conclude your
Transaction.The FBI has decided to proffer a solution that will make
it easier for all the Beneficiaries to receive their Funds.

We understood that some Fees are required in order process and
Transfer your Funds into your Account. We are also aware that most
Beneficiaries do not have these required fees.

We have therefore deliberated with the Bank in charge of this payment
to allow Beneficiaries the privilege of receiving their Funds in two
(2) or three (3) installments. In this case, Beneficiaries will no
longer be required to pay the fee at once but part of it depending on
the number of installments such Beneficiary will like his/her Funds to
be released tohim/her.

Write the Bank and request that you want your fund to be transferred
to your account by installments payment, so that once the first
payments enters into your account you can then use money from there to
facilitate the transfer of the remaining balance, once the first
installments enters into your account that you will equally give you
another opportunity to do a telex-transfer and withdrawal from your
account to master Citi Bank Online transfer Or STANDARD BANK

The Citi Bank which is now in charge of your Payment has agreed to
give the Beneficiaries the option of receiving their Funds at once, in
two or three installments. This will help any beneficiaries to pay
part of the fee and receive part of their Funds with which such
beneficiary can upset the remaining fee and receive his/her complete
Funds. To break this down:

1.)One Hundred Dollars ($100) fee will facilitate the release of Fifty
Thousand United States Dollars (US$50,000.00) only.

2.)Three Hundred Dollars ($300) fee will facilitate the release of Two
Million United States Dollars (US$2,000,000) only.

3.)One Thousand, Six Hundred Dollars ($1,600) fee which is the total
fee will facilitate the release of your Full Contract/inheritance
Funds in the sum of Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars (US$10,500,000.00).

However, Feel free to inform us how much you can raise should you
cannot afford any of the above Mentioned installment so as for us to
talk to the Bank to know how much out of your Funds they could release
to you with the amount you can come up with. This is the best the FBI
can do for you and you are advised to take advantage of this

Kindly, contact Mr. Lambert Huddles, at Citi Bank to indicate your
preferred option. He could be reached at: E-mail: { } NOTE: Do not be shy to indicate
the amount you have in hands (no proper-amount is so small to trigger
installments-payment base on our discussion with the Bank) so that the
first payment will move to your account for you to confirm the
existence of the fund before your proceed for the balance.
