Her advise is good. Ignore anyone who emails you claiming to have millions of dollars in inheritance money for you from relatives you know nothing about.

PAYMENT FILE: CBN/BEN/09.
PAYMENT NOTIFICATION OF YOUR FUNDS.
Definitely, I know that this letter will be a surprising one to You. Firstly, I will like to introduce myself formally as Prof.
Charles Soludo, the Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). You are been officially contacted by me today
because your Inheritance Funds/Contract were Re-deposited into the “Federal Suspense Account” of CBN last week, because you did
not forward your Claim As the Right beneficiary. Well known to all, The Central Bank of Nigeria is the mother Bank of all commercial
Banks here in Nigeria. Really these men were unexpected by me because their visit was impromptu.i had to ask them why they came
to see me in person And they said that they were here to collect the Inheritance Bill Sum of (US$20,000,000) which rightfully belongs
to you, on your Behalf.
At this development I asked them who authorized them to come down To Nigeria for the Collection of this Payment and they told me
That you asked them to come and collect this Funds on your Behalf. infact this was the biggest shock that this Bank have ever
Received so far because your Inheritance Funds is still in the “Federal Suspense Account” of CBN, yet you sent these men to come
and collect this Funds on your behalf without notifying us. We in this Bank do not understand why you sent these men to come and
Collect your Funds on your behalf. If actually you want them to help you Collect your Inheritance Bill Sum, at least you should
have informed me as the Executive Governor of this Bank.
They actually tendered some Vital Documents which Proved that you actually sent them for the Collection of this Funds.
Honestly, it really baffles me that you took such decision without my consent. Here are the Document which they tendered
to this Bank today:
1. DEATH CERTIFICATE.
2. HIGH COURT INJUCTION.
3. ORDER TO RELEASE.
I refused there prayer because the following documents were missing.
1.LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION AND POWER OF ATTORNEY ENDORSED BY YOU.
Actually, these Documents which they tendered to this Noble Bank is a clear Proof that you sent them to Collect this Funds for you.
Finally,I told them to come back tomorrow morning and they promised To come back. As the Governor of this Noble Bank, I was
supposed to Release this Fund to them but I refused to do so because I wanted to hear from you first so that you could provide (LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION AND POWER OF ATTORNEY).
Due to the Nature of my job, i will not want to make any mistake in Releasing this Funds to anyone except you whom is the
Recognized Bonafide Beneficiary to this Funds.
Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this Payment to these foreigners whom came on your behalf. In receipt of this
Confidential Letter, you are required to call this Bank on this number: +234 1 7938496.
