the new governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. No reports yet of scammers claiming to be him, but it's only a matter of time.
Charles Soludo retired at the end of May, and at least two of his alter egos have modified their scripts accordingly.

You can contact me either by PM or by email to arnold.d.matthews @ gmail.com. Scam related matters only please.

Hi Arnold,

The scammers are definitely already well up to date with the current state of play regarding the changeover at the helm of the Central Bank of Nigeria. I received this one below 11 Jun where a scammer is representing himself as "Dr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi "

Re: Reconciliation of Fund Transfer

Madam,

I wish to draw to your attention that, I am the newly appointed Executive Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria. While scrutinizing CBN foreign payment file, I discover some irregularities of double claims in your file which was why this payment was withheld up till date. Therefore, I need your urgent attention immediately to ratify this indication of two beneficiaries because there are double names for this payment while in the record of CBN here shows that you are the equitable beneficiary of the indicated fund.

Therefore, you are instructed to urgently get back to me through my direct line for ratification of this error. As a matter of fact, my system of operation does not require such bureaucratic protocols hence we can simply dispatch some documents to your address and transfer your fund direct to your bank account.

Will let me hear from you first because I also believer in Justices.

Yours Faithfully,

Dr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi
(New) Executive Governor, CBN

Hi all, I'm new to this board but not new to scams, specially not the African ones, below is the latest variant of the 419 scam, received today 30JUN09.

What's new?

1) In order to hide their real IP adresses, they use 'webpage forwarding by email'; so there's no telling where they are located.

2) Strangely enough there's no mentioning of 'millions of dollars' even though the story is just as pathetic as the Abacha's, Kabila's and the rest of them:

Attn: Sir/Madam,

PLEASE KINDLY REPLY ONLY IF YOU ARE AMONG OF OUR BENEFICIARIES

Highest greetings of the day to you, this circular should not be seen as a
surprise but a step further to correct the mistake of the past. As a newly
appointed Governor of Central Bank due to my credibility and my holding of
different portfolio in banking sector with the experience of more than 25
years in service, I deem it necessary to first touch the area which has been
making it difficult for eligible beneficiaries to put smile on their faces.

I will like to inform you that the system has been change for good as you are
aware that the Nigerian government is fighting both day and night to redeem
her name by establishing so many security agencies that will fight against all
these malpractices. Moreover, with the new development beneficiaries are
requested to submit their contract/inheritance details to my office direct to
prevent any prank by any of our official. With the introduction of new
scientific means of transferring fund from one country
to another, we have included three different ways in which beneficiaries
desire to receive their fund, these are: -

i. Payment through an International Certified Bank Draft.
ii. Bank Draft or ATM Card
iii. Bank to Bank transfer through a Swift

These three systems are almost the same procedures it depends on the system
that the beneficiaries require for his/her fund to be transferred. I will
never stop this message without asking you to forgive whatever the hardship
the other past administration has put you through in your effort to get your
fund transferred.

For your information, I have decided to give you a code whenever you are
writing an email to me, this code is “SUCCESS 09” whenever you are replying to
my email always include it in the TOP of your email as a SUBJECT, to prevent
the email hackers from getting the information of beneficiaries to be little
my good intension. I await your urgent response and a phone call from you for
more oral discussion. Your maximum corporation is important

Please kindly furnish to me your detail information and the mode of payment
that you may wish. Please kindly reply to (governornig2009@gmail.com)

My regards,

MR. SANUSI LAMIDO AMINU SANUSI

I received this email today 8/14/2009 just wanted to make sure it is available to save someone from losing money to these people. I myself lost $2400.00 to one of these scammers 2 years ago. the email is as follows


Dear ,


On resume of office as Executive Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria last month, I
was going through some files this evening and discovered huge amount fund
floating in your name that is yet to be claimed.


I will like to hear from you before going into conclusion on reason why the fund
is yet to be paid to you as rightful beneficiary of the fund. I will appreciate
your kind response to this massage before Monday as I planned to conclude my
investigation and decide on necessary action that befits the situation of the
fund.

Regards

Lamido A Sanusi.


I hope this saves you some time and heartbreak.

here is a letter I just received...didn't see it listed here yet...

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA
Our Ref: CBN/OHG/OXD1/09
Your Ref: ...............
TELEX: CENTRALBANK.
PAYMENT FILE: CBN/BEN/09.
Phone: +234-809-589-5441

Attn: Beneficiary,

PAYMENT NOTIFICATION.

Definitely, I know that this letter will be a surprising one to you. Firstly, I will
like to introduce myself formally as Mr. Lamido Sanusi, The Executive Governor of The
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

I am officially contacting you today because your Inheritance Funds 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$4.5M) 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. In fact 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 these Fund. Honestly, it really baffles me that you took such
decision without my consent.

Here are the Documents, which they tendered to this Bank

1. LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION.
2. HIGH COURT INJUNCTION.
3. ORDER TO RELEASE.

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 and they
promised to come back.

As the Governor of this Noble Bank, I was supposed to Release this Funds to them but I
refused to do so because I wanted to hear from you first. 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 respond
immediately to this email: with your full name, address and phone number for
reconfirmation and immediate action.

You are to call me immmediately you receive this email with my direct cell phone for
more information on the way forward +234-809-589-5441

OFFICIALLY SIGNED.

Governor.Lamido Sanusi
