Kind Attention Dear Valued Customer;
Please kindly get back to us if you are still alive to avoid transferring your Fund's to wrong hand, note that the reason why I am applying you with this email message today is because someone called our Western Union Head Office today with this number 706-925-5615 stating that he is your very childhood Good friend, he made us to understand that you died TWO WEEKS ago and before this happened you asked him to receive your funds on your behalf. He forwarded his address for us to start transferring your Western Union Payment direct to him, below is the address he forwarded to our Office;

Regarding the fee of $65.00 US Dollars which you are supposed to send earlier, I tried letting him know of the required fee he stated that you told him about the fee and that we should give him the information to send the fee $65.00 US Dollars, so that we can update your payments and have it re-direct to his name and address then send the MTCN numbers to him since you are not alive again.
Please this fund is not something we should just make any silly mistake or send it to the wrong person as you know that USD$950,000.00 is huge amount of money. your urgent reply is highly needed, if you are STILL ALIVE, because this man is getting us confusing on what he is saying therefore if you are STILL ALIVE and what this person his saying is not truth you advice to get back to us immediately upon receipt of this email message.
