Everyone knows that Nigeria, sadly, has a reputation as being the home of more scams than anywhere else. It never ceases to amaze me that, knowing this, so many scammers still tell me (and you) that their scams come from Nigeria. This one is no exception. If every scam inheritance that claims to come from Nigeria was true then everyone in Nigeria would be a) mega rich and b) dead! Clearly neither is true.
Yes folk, this is a scam. There is no inheritance and “Dr Eldridge” is a scammer who wants to steal money from you by charging you fees. Delete the email and don’t reply.
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( firstname.lastname@example.org)
so that we may conclude your payment immediately.
Klaus Eldridge & Associates c/o CBN.
