Telephone number +2348085953240 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Alhaji Lai Mohammed", Information Minister for the Federal Government of Nigeria and using the email address informationnim05@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attention Beneficiary,

I am Mr Lai Mohammed, Nigeria Information Minister on foreign affairs to Federal Government of Nigeria. I was instructed by Senate Committee on International Transfer to get you informed concerning your outstanding payment which is now under payment review for 2020 payment Re-Allocation.

This was resolved after the Board meetings involving our Senate Committee ,banks directors,foreign Remittance officers of each bank and Nigeria Financial Intelligence Unit director Mrs Vera Uzo whom is now in charge of financial matter,Therefore,it has been agreed before the senate committee that all outstanding payment waiting for transfer under commercial bank or Central Bank over the years should be paid to beneficiary's concern as an order from the presidency in other to redeem the image and reputation of our government

This ugly development has come to the notice of our Federal Government that some corrupt and unscrupulous persons in bank and ministries are involve in illegal ACT of fund transfer with bank directors,Finance Minister and our formal EFCC chairman by declaring that some beneficiaries whom has contract/inheritance fund to claim here in Nigeria are dead.

This information has kept our formal EFCC Chairman ,Finance Minister and some bank directors under our Government surveillance through NFIU, therefore all protocols must be observed concerning outstanding debt own to beneficiaries whom their transaction is over due for completion, our governments want to know about your current situation concerning your outstanding Debt if you are alive to proceed with the claim and get it settle.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr, Alhaji Lai Mohammed
Information Minister
CALL ME --- +234-808-595-3240
The email was sent from the email address ""Mr, Alhaji Lai Mohammed" <recruitment@rockall.co.uk>", with the Reply-to address "<informationnim05@gmail.com>" and the subject "VERY IMPORTANT AND URGENT FROM INFORMATION MINISTER...".

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.
