I am Mr. Harold Matthews,an American citizen presently working as a special agent to Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), a team setup by the president of Nigeria to monitor all pending internationl funds transfer files and Suspicious transaction reports.
I have an urgent information which you might find very useful. Following an investigation that was carried out by my office,I have discovered that there are some long overdue payment presently here in Nigeria yet to be claimed. These funds have been processed in your name and should be released to you as soon as possible in line with our financial instrument. But we are realizing that the earlier documents validating this sum in your name has been re written or altered.
Furthermore, there is a supporting document here from one Mr. Edward Doan who told us that he is your legal representative and that you have given him the right to file for the funds on your behalf.
To enable me confirm the status of the information i have for you, I need you to re confirm the account details below, this is what we have for the funds processed in your name in c/o Edward Doan and the transfer will be effected by Monday 1st August 2011 13:00 Hrs.

We want to hear from you before we can append our signature on the transfer and to also know if you authorize the transfer of your funds to the account mentioned above.
When I hear from you, then I can put my investigations together and make conclusions. But from what I have here, it seems as though your financial entitlements in Nigeria is being redirected for personal interest by illegal means and you will aid us by giving me a brief on your dealings when previously trying to process release of your funds.
