Another Scam: from Dr. Mrs Ngozi Eze, Minister of Finance

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Dr. Mrs Ngozi Eze of the Federal Ministry of Finance. I received a letter last week Thursday that your unclaimed approved payment of $10.5millionusd by this Ministry for the past one year should now be paid to Mr. John Wheeler 1101 West 18th Avenue, Emporia, Kansas 66801 U.S.A.

In the said letter which is change of beneficiary/ownership, it is said that you are dead and that he is your next of kin, it went further to say you signed a deed and an agreement with Mr. John Wheeler to become your beneficiary before your untimely death.

But because of the elaborate global scam, I decided to contact you first for confirmation and if after four  working days, no response is received from you, it will be assumed that you are dead and as such authorization and approval will be granted on behalf of Mr. John Wheeler to claim/receive your fund.

But if you are well and alive then confirm this letter and reconfirm your Information and how you want your said fund to be paid to you without further delay. Send your responses to my above email address.

I am very sorry to hear this sad news and I don’t know this are the reason your not complies for all the email I sent to you regarding your delivering of your fund total $10.5millionusd. This is my promise to you, I am going to do everything within my power to make sure that your fund delivery to him as your next of kin beneficiary, may your gentle soul rest imperfect peace and may Good God grate your internal life on the last day to come, I ‘m very sorry .
He also promise to pay for express delivery for the fund to get to his door step by this week  and he asked for the total cost. $175
I told him to hold on and let me verify  if this true or not because I am confused now about this claims’ you are advice to send your address to enable me process on your delivery if this is not true but for your information you are to pay for the processing fee of this official later of authorization which the transportation security administration demanded if this is not true that your alive.  These are the funeral pictures he submitted to me as the finally ceremony of your burial and also dead certificate reported By Mr. John Wheeler
