Dear Beneficiary. Immediate Resolution of your funds payment. 9

This scam seems to be aimed at existing scam victims.  In effect it is saying “stop sending money to the scammer you are already dealing with and send money to us instead”.  Yes – that’s what this scam is about – taking money from you for fees.

Ignore the email and don’t reply.

Dear Beneficiary,

I hope that this correspondence is received with the
urgency and expediency required.

It has come to the notice of the Board of Trustees at
the CBN that your present inheritance claims application
being handled by the Remmitting Bank in Nigeria is
experiencing some man made irregularities.To this effect,it has become
neccesary for the Board of Trustees to invite trained Fund Transfer
Specalists from the United States to resolve and regularize your fund
release with immediate effect.

We at Klaus Eldridge & Associates have been duly
consulted by the CBN Board of Trustees and have been fully
informed about how the staff of the remmitting bank have been taking
advantage of you by telling you to pay unneccesarily
exhorbitant charges which will only make your fund payment a long drawn out

Due to this we have decided to step into the process
of your fund transfer to enable your funds to be transfered
within the soonest possible time you are to get back to us
immediatly without needing to pay all the huge sums of monies that are
being demanded from you by the remmitting bank.

All proccesses to have your funds paid to you
imediately through the CBN’s  Laison Remmittance Office
in New York have been initiated to cut out unneccesary costs.You are advised
to keep this communication highly confidential as the CBN Board of
Trustees have asked us to resolve  this fund payment independent of the
office of the CBN Gorvernor to identify the principal participants in
this unethical payment procedure.

Furthermore,you are hereby advised to pay no furtherfees
or charges to the Remmitting Bank in Nigeria as they shall
no longer be handling your payment process.

We shall await your immedite correspondence with your
direct telephone numbers for re-confirmation to my
confidential email address at(
so that we may conclude your payment immediately.

Yours Sincerely,
Dr.Klaus Eldridge
Klaus Eldridge  & Associates c/o CBN.

    Nancy Williams from Nigeria and I have been e-mailing for about a week. She wanted me to send her $90.00 dollars for a phone which I did Sat. 08/01/09.She then wanted me to be her beneficiary, her father had passed and was worth alot of money but she had to be married to get her inheritance. Last night 08/03/09 she said she had to have $800.00 dollars sent to her lawyer I then realized this had to be a scam.

    We received two similar emails from this “David Hyde” – the first was to tell us of our long lost rich dead Uncle Craig. He left us close to 5 million and we were his only living link after a long search. Then, since we knew this was a scam, we jokingly emailed back asking if that were the same Uncle Craig who was married to Aunt Minnie. I guess he sensed that we might not be taking him seriously, so he sent us this one – telling us that he was an oil merchant. Seriously! But he never mentioned Aunt Minnie!?


    Please read carefully as I am going to explain in details why I mailed you. I have since carried out a search on his actual extended family ties and which efforts have been to no avail and hence my contacting you.

    I had contacted you to solicit your honest assistance in profiling funds belonging to my late client. I want you to consider the details so you could understand the fuller reasons I need your co-operation.

    My mail to you was written as a matter of last resort because of the circumstances surrounding this claim right now. Craig was an oil merchant and he had oil dealings around Europe and Africa.

    He lived most of his years here in the U.K but traveled often. I served as his private attorney for the last eleven years preceding his death, just after the birth of Katharine. Craig migrated into England a long time ago as an orphan.

    I know you may not be anyway related to my client but you need to understand the main reason I contacted you. I contacted you because after the death of my late client, I was informed by the finance company to search for any member of his extended family to put up a claim, or who could be so represented as managers or trustees for his deposited funds with them which stands due to the fact that he died with his immediate family members.

    After preliminary efforts of search that came to no avail, I was given an ultimatum to look for someone to come for the claim or have the funds liquidated and made serviceableness in accordance with existing laws because it will be assumed that no member of his family is alive.

    However, it might interest you to know that, after a thorough investigation in the finance company, I found out that some members of the company are currently planning to divert this fund in their selfish interest and only want to use the excuse that since I am not able to look for someone to make the claim, the money should be made serviceableness and that means reverting the fund to the Government while the company retains a percentage of it.
    After unraveling their plans and professional consideration on my part, I decided to look for someone credible, with the same last name with my late client, to apply for this claim due to the fact that I have at my possession some legal documents which are very important and which might be requested by them and which, can only be provided by my chambers since they have since been with me.

    I feel and know that you will be able to make this claim SUCCESSFULLY because of your last name which is the same as that of my late client’s and as a result of this I do not want the company to be aware that I contacted you first in order to prevent them from going into much investigations on whom you actually are and that can put the success of this transaction on the line. I want you to be rest assured that this is legal with no risk involved, since all the legal documents that give you the right to make the claim is available.

    This is a deal I am offering you and I want you to know that it requires only a mature mind to understand all I am saying and I believe you are mature enough which is the reason I am going further.

    I am taking my time to explain all these to you now because I want you to see the reasons why my name should never be mentioned any time you are discussing with the members of the company and why this transaction has to be kept really confidential in order for us to be able to achieve our goals neatly.

    Note that there is a legal reason for the confidentiality of this transaction because of the nature of the transactions and the circumstances surrounding it. I stand a better part of the risk because if at any point, and for any reason, this Finance House becomes aware of my prior contact with you, then I could be held for being in breach of a standard code of conduct which borders on a breach of lawyer/client fiduciary relationship among others and for this reason, I will appreciate if you are very sure you can assist with this and execute this with the required diligence.

    NOTE that if they request to know how you came to know that your family member had such an amount of funds with them and who contacted you, which I am not sure they will ask, but in order to be on the safer side, if you are asked, be confident to tell them that the extended family discovered some documents in his archives showing that Mr. Craig lodged such funds with them and that is why you have been sent by the paternal family to contact the bank. Anyway, further deliberations will be held on this as we proceed.

    I want you to know that I have these documents to show to you as proof but I cannot release them for your perusal now for security reasons until I have attained your confidence. I will provide you with any information you need as we proceed. I want you to be rest assured as this is going to be done in line with the law avoiding anything illegal. I would be protecting you 100% all the way through this transaction.

    Please bear in mind that you have to be really sure if you are going ahead or not for I do not want to jeopardize the success of this transaction which means so much to me at the moment. I will wait for your response and please do not forget about the discreet nature of this transaction. I will advice you give me a call on +44-703 595 4878 or +44 702 406 8657 my private and confidential numbers.

    Take note of the mode of sharing after a second thought, 50% for me 40% for you and 10% for expenses that might be incurred during the course of the transaction. If you have gone through this mail and you feel it is well understood, please get back to me telling me if you are willing to go ahead or not so that I can give you the contact of this finance company where this fund is lodged and then inform you too of how to proceed.
