Dear Mr,

This honourable commission acknowledged the receipt of your mail with thanks and I want you to understand that this department or office is not owned by me or a particuler person but it was runned by different Governmental heads.

The decesion taken was not carried by one person but rather all the heads of the department in the Ministry and I am just a common head and will not go contrary to the rules and regulation which has been in existance for years before I was appoint the director.

Please Sir, what you are requesting from this honourable commission is highly impossible but rather advise you to make sure you send the complete requested fee of EIGHT THOUSAND EURO to Barrister Wisdom Godswill as he will direct you. The only and one assistance I will render is that upon the Ministry confirmation of the complete fee I must make sure that I order the Financial Bank to start up with your transfer process immediately without any further delay.

Thanks,

Prof. Dr. Egobia Udodi
Director.

Welcome to Scamwarners. I get the impression you are baiting him. This is something we approve of, as long as you take precautions such as using an email address created for the purpose, that gives none of your real life information away.
