Attention: Beneficiary

I am the Director Documentation/statistic and Archive Office, Fact
Finding and Special Duties,

As an intelligent officer trained to check fraud, I have made personal
discovery from The Government payment Awarded Blue Print. The payment
number your are pursuing is different from the number on your file.
Some high place bank officials has been coming asking me to change
your name with their choice name and help them with documents to get
this fund. I found out that they’re trying to loot this money away
with the help of foreign partners.

Spurred by my discovery, a more critical vetting of the Document
revealed that the fund in question is an over invoiced / inflated
amount on a Contract. The original Executor of the said Contract has
been fully paid through their nominated Bank Account Via Marine
Midland Bank New York,. Right now, I am the only Person aware of this
fact, I am interested on this deal but I demand your cooperation. I
want you to know that without me there is no other way you can receive
this fund, also derogatory marks has been made on your file which
means that we have to put in place an introductory letter purported to
have been written by the Original Executors of the Contract whose name
is Ms. G. J B Davis Construction England, Stating that they
transferred ownership of this fund to you as the beneficiary. This
letter has to be backdated and will be registered with the Federal
Parastatals where the Contract emanated and has to tally with the date
of Contract Completion and must be verifiable in case the sponsors of
the Contract (Word Bank – Auditors) strike after payment has been

With this introductory letter, we will have full access to obtain all
relevant Documents and Contract Agreement that will justify your
claims. This process is called, Affidavit of Transfer of Right
–Normalization and Validation of Contract Payment (A.T.R.N.V.C.P)
which will also include Resolution report from the Supreme Court,
Federal Ministry of Justice of which the Originals Copies of all these
Documents will be dispatch to your address because your signature is
required on all the Original Documents.

If you’re interested to get this fund you must adhere strictly to my
instructions. Before we start this process, you will send a promissory
note with passport photograph or drivers license, that you will pay me
%30 of the total money while 70% is for you. If you agreed on this
term, kindly get back to me i will let you know how much it will cost
to get this done, as the director Fact Finding and Special Duties, i
will help you with all the paper work. It will only take us 14 days to
conclude this. The Fund in question is $10.5Millions USD. Please do
not tell any one about this transaction. You have to maintain
Uttermost confidentiality of this transaction.

Call me on my direct telephone +2347041429333 on the receipt of this message.

Yours Sincerely

The email was sent from the email address "MR. JIM ATTAH <drjohnchris585@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "jimattah@mail.ru" and the subject "Read Carefully...".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
