Good Day,

RE: FRAUD ALERT/FINAL NOTICE

Based on our findings in this investigation department we wish to warn you
against some Miscreants, Hoodlums and Touts who go about scamming innocent
people by claiming to be who they are not and thereby tarnishing the image
of this wonderful country. We were informed that some Hoodlums are
contacting you in respect to the collection of your fund which was long
approved in your favour with the Central Bank of Nigeria.

As a matter of fact we have been on this investigation assignments for
some time secretly known to no one but the Presidency and some top
government official who are in support of this investigation team to help
stop fraudalent activities in this country and as well restore the image
that has been tarnished by the below listed group of people.

Although we have been able to come up with some good result about the
people that have extorted money from you illegally and I wish to list them
so that you will personally indicate them by writing back to us with the
name of whom scammed you among them as we want to make sure your payment
is routed to you without any further delay and note that we will surely
deal and bring to book the names of people below if only you will
cooperate with us by co indicating correctly any of them.

… (etc etc etc) …

Finally, we are expecting to hear from you today unfailingly so as to
enable us serve you better and wire your funds into your Bank account as
nominated. Thank you very much for your anticipated co-operation and
understanding while we wait for your urgent response.

Yours sincerely,

DR. DAVID B. IKENNA.
(Director, Nigerian Foreign Payment Investigation department)

  1. No doubt my wholesale copy-and-paste of this fanciful piece of fiction is a copyright violation. Of course, if the author wishes to bring a suit, presumably they will need to disclose their true address…
