The Lads from Lagos, again

They never seem to give up. This scam is so tired, but there's always an up-and-coming generation of onioburus (gong farmers) who are willing to try their hands at theft by deception.


Dear Beneficiary,
How are you?

First, I have to tell you that your payment is ready and we have duly perfected all the necessary programming for the release of your funds into your account through Citibank, NA
We have completed the setting up of your accredited payment access code number, password. The Central bank of Nigeria will complete the allocation of foreign exchange for your Payment AT NO COST as soon as you complete the Forex form. This is not the first time I am telling you this.

This office in liaison with the computer unit (Computronics) of the Central Bank of Nigeria has duly set up your accredited payment access code number and password for an uninterruptible access to the telegraphic vault for a hitch-free release of US$500,000 to your account because your country’s central bank and your bank regulations do not allow or approve of a single wire transfer over $500,000.00 to your account without having to present some clearance paperwork after 9/11.
As such, a single payment of US$500,000 for each wire transfer would be made to your account without any problem.

Your number is CBN/ING/PAY#1973D90584530FGN and your password is PD725.

All that is remaining now is for an accredited attorney from the legal department of the Central bank of Nigeria to perfect a release order, sign to undo the indivisible quagmire through legal means and as such, You will no longer need all the clearance paperwork or any kind of unending bureaucratic bottlenecks as $500,000 wire transfer does not attract any penalty or demand for terrorism clearance in international banking operation.

Immediately you collect the above mentioned payment release documents and submit them to your bank, you are going to receive your payment. You will no longer need all the clearance paperwork or any kind of unending bureaucratic bottlenecks as $500,000 wire transfer does not attract any penalty or demand for terrorism clearance in international banking operation.

You are required to send immediately the sum of US$150 for the lawyers’ legal fees and sundries so that the lawyer can sign the release order for the first wire transfer of US$500,000 to your account.

Name: Victor Oke
Location: Lagos-Nigeria
Question: Perfect
Answer: Yes
Amount to send: US$150

The new government of Nigeria has made it possible for you to get it with only $150.

Do not forget that all the past officials that tried to pay you failed because the Banking regulations and your banks policy do not allow or approve of a single wire transfer of more than $500,000.00 to your account without problems.

Thanks

As usual, the English is stilted and cumbersome. The names used by these morons keep being recycled (Emmanuel Sam, Martins Tanjul, Maryam Abacha - see a more comprehensive list here) - I have a hard time getting my head around the fact that there are still people who fall for this sad gambit. On the other hand, there are still people who think the US Government brought down the WTC...

At least those conspiracy theorists are harder to disprove.
