UNQUOTE.

NATURALLY IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL TO RECEIVE A CERTIFIED CITI BANK CHECK IN MY FAVOUR FOR THE AMOUNT OF 8.3 MILLION U.S. DOLLARS, BUT I PRESUME IT IS NOTHING BUT A SCAM. IF I FILL IN ALL INFORMATION REQUIRED, THE NEXT THING WILL BE, THAT AN ADVANCE PAYMENT OF SEVERAL HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS IS DEMANDED FOR CERTAIN HANDLING FEES.

NEEDLESS TO SAY, I SHALL DO NOTHING OF THE SORT. I HAVE RECEIVED THIS ADVICE SEVERAL TIMES.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR KIND ASSISTANCE.

SINCERELY YOURS,

KENT LINNET, ESQ.

Hello my Citi,
Even more of my intervention in your bank to open a checking account in my name as a foreign citizen, you are not we meet. What is the problem, why not respond to my personal email which I sent to the address of your bank in London. You, as the Bank of reputation is not allowed to do these things because it only harms the reputation of your bank.

Regarding the information we Received From European And United States Of American Citizens That Are Lottery Winners And Also Inheritance/Contractors To The Government Of Nigeria, About The Dubious Character Of The Officials And Extortion Of Money By Some Corrupt Nigerians That Have Always Claimed To Be Government Agencies From All Arms Of The Government Offices, Ministries And Parastatals.


We The FBI Agent Have Taken This As A Burden And We Wish To State Clearly To All American/ other Lottery Winners And Inheritance/Contractors Concerned That We Have Consulted With the government in Africa Over This Issue On The December, 10th 2008.


However, They Explained To Us That A Panel Has Been Set Up Under The Federal Executive Council (FEC) To Handle Every Outstanding Debt And To Make Sure That All Inheritance/Contractors Concerned Receives Their Funds. They Also Said That This Panel Is under the Supervision Of The united nation/ The World Bank And That Every client Inheritance/Contractors Concerned Must Co-Operate And Comply With The Conditions Of This Panel For The Release Of His/Her Payments. He Also Stressed That All Offices, Agencies, Ministries And Parastatals Formally Handling Foreign Payment Has Been Revoked And Cancelled. At This Juncture, I Hereby Advice Every Inheritance/Contractors And Lottery Winners Concerned To Forward His Claims To Citibank London:

This whole Duncan Smith issue as well as Mark J Mershon is a bit onerous. The FBI ONLY uses FBI web site addresses and FBI email addresses. Consequently, if an email comes from an address other than FBI.GOV it is to be considered FALSE!

As one who has worked with FBI offices in several states, the FBI Directors are few and Mr. Mershon is NOT a Director. If he had any "stroke" at all, Mr. Mershon ... might be ... an Agent In Charge a.k.a. AIC. The term ADIC is also bogus, false, onerous and lying!

I guess no problems with working capital of course. And the amount of memory that I will be transferred to you in just a little money for you and your bank if compared to Europe and Asia are developing countries follow you, I would be delighted if you contact the Bank. It is real and true in all aspects.
