After a serious taught, I decided to contact you not minding the risk of sending this message across to you, because these top officials of the C.B.N can never tell you the truth about your money rather allow you to spend and pay all you have without getting anything in return
Now I am out to take this risk and see that your receive your fund through a secretive arrangement if you will promise me of my Security, this fund will delivered on your door step without the knowledge of any body or any top official, this is the only way you will get your payment.

This is a mafia set-up of which I am ready to do now because I am not ready to work in Nigeria here for life because of the instability of this country. So all I need is your go ahead order to enable me proceed with the arrangement and also re-confirm your contact/delivery address, direct telephone number and a copy of your I.D to enable ascertain your permission and also to confirm if I am dealing with the right person.
