Frankly, I think this is a scam. I’ll tell you why.

First, the Federal Reserve System is a huge scam. This letter offers too little money to be the real thing.

Second, Bernanke’s FED only gives money to the federal government and to large banks. I am not a banker.

Third, it lists the address as Liberty Street, New York City. That’s the address of the New York Federal Reserve (privately owned), not the Board of Governors (U.S. government). The real power is at the NY FED, not the Board of Governors.

They don’t understand any of this in Nigeria.
