FROM: THE NEW YORK STATE OFFICE OF HOMELAND SECURITY
State of New York

Department of Homeland Security | Preserving our Freedoms, Protecting America.
Our office was informed this morning by the Remittance Director Central Bank of Nigeria that, two men in the persons of James Bowen and an Attorney, BEN AND MARTINS approached the Central Bank of Nigeria, with a “Power of Attorney, claiming that due to some inevitable circumstances beyond your control (ILL HEALTH) that you would not be able to conclude or carry out your obligation to receive your Contract/ Inheritance fund from the Central Bank of Nigeria and therefore wish that your fund be transferred to your friend Mr. James Bowen from USA, who is presently taking care of your businesses in New York.
This fund valued at US$10 Million had been programmed to be transferred to a bank account with the Wells Fargo. Find the Bank Account information as they have presented to the Central Bank of Nigeria below;
9 Northern Boulevards
Greenvale, New York
Account Number: 1010179906574
Swift Number: WFBIUS 6S
Routing Number: 121000248
Account Name: Mr. James Bowen
Due to the high level of scam activities going on in Nigeria, the Central Bank of Nigeria had called our attention at the Department of Homeland Security, to find out if you are really sick and had given this authorization. In case you are not aware of this please, get back to this office and let us know so we can notify the Central Bank of Nigeria immediately to stop the transfer.
Please if you did not authorize this legal representation to avoid any mistake, reconfirm:
1) Your full name:
2) Your full personal address:
3) Your company address (IF ANY)
4) Your Mobile Number:
5) Your position:
6) Your bank name:
7) Scan copy of YOUR Personal Identification.
Upon your prompt response, you will be detailed and enlightened on how you will work out this transfer to your account rather than allowing criminals to steal the fund. We will also give you the contact of a trusted and God fearing Director of Budget, Federal Ministry of Finance, Nigeria. He will ensure that the Federal High Court stops further instruction on the payment of the inheritance/contract fund to Mr. James as the inheritance is purely attached to your email.
We await your swift response to this letter via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
or by phone to our officer in Nigeria, Mr. Kingsley Moghalu on: +234-8020559414 for action in ensuring that your fund is transferred to you.
