requirements needed for the transfer of your funds to you, wherefore we
would like you to furnish me with the requested informations as stated
A scanned copy of your Passport or Identification
These will be attached to your file so that it would be submitted to the remittance department for processing.
PROCEDURE OF TRANSFER
Be informed that i have set aside a very legitimate arrangement
to get your funds transferred to you through our SWIFT transfer
policy,by so doing all eligible beneficiaries are to own an account
with our bank, this type of account which is a non-residential account
which can be accessed online and beneficiaries can make there transfer
on there own.
This account is aligned with USD, EUR, GBP, YEN so we have all
categories to suit all customers, where since yours funds are in
dollars you would be using the USD account, this account will have to
be opened for you with our Bank with a sum of $220.00 , this is a one
time payment that would not be requested from you again, wherefore the
account opening will cost $100.00 and the $120.00 will be remitted into
your account as an activation fee.
Once this is done we would commence with the transfer of your funds by
SWIFT transfer of better still you can log on to our Website where you
can transfer your funds to any account in the world of your choice.
I believe we have made all arrangements, the sooner we get this done
the better, note that your fund is now $15.6Million with dividends
acquired during the duration my boss have refused to contact you.
I would require that you re-furnish me with your Bank details for proper accessing.
I await your earnest response,
