The scammer will often pretend to be real people or companies, use fake websites and introduce various characters, all with the aim of convincing the victim that what is being offered to him is real.

Here is the email that the scammer sent to his victims.
African Development Bank
Plot 813, Lake Chad Crescent
Maitama District
Abuja, Nigeria

Attention: Sir/Madam.

This letter is written to you in order to change your life from today. I am Mr. Benneth Joseph the Director, International Remittance Department of this Bank, My Boss, Mr.Ousmane Dore, the Managing director of this bank is now on compulsory leave and all power have been vested on me to make all international payments.

Also, due to reported cases of corrupt practices in other African Banks including the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Federal Government has revoked/canceled all power vested on those banks and has appointed our bank (African Development Bank Nigeria) to make all foreign payments.

Be informed that the Federal Government have approved the release of part-payment of$6.5M (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) out of your total funds, which has been in this bank for many years unclaimed because my boss Mr.Ousmane Dore, in collaboration with the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have refused to tell you the truth on how to claim your fund this is because he has been using the interest accumulated from your fund every year to enrich himself without your knowledge.

I am here to ensure you have your payment into your bank account using the easiest and the quickest method, which have not been made known to you before.
By this method, you will open a domiciliary account with this bank (African Development Bank) Your fund will be lodged into this domiciliary account and will be paid directly into any bank of your choice. After the transfer, you will confirm the fund in your bank account within 5hours the same day.

No Cost of Transfer (COT) and no stoppage from any Government departments as the transfer will be done within the bank alone and it is very safe and legitimate.

The method which was introduced to you before is the Telegraphic Transfer (TT)for which confirmation was 48hrs or above, because of the time factor, petitions could come from various organizations stopping your payment and asking you to pay huge fee which would be difficult for you to pay so that they can benefit from the huge interest your fund generates while still in the Bank.

Those methods are not safe for you because it is not done within the bank alone as information of the payment would be sent to the Central Control Unit (CCU) of the Federal Ministry of Finance and office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
