Subject: RECOVERED OF YOUR STOLEN FUND
INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL POLICE ORGANIZATION
From the desk of: Sir. Elton Wilfred
Director - UK National Central Bureau
Dear Victimized Beneficiary
My name is Elton Wilfred, of the fund monitoring department of ICPO UK
National Bureau. Your information is in our data as a victim of
diverted/stolen funds. We were able to recover most of your diverted
funds. The culprits are claiming that you authorized them to divert
your funds to a different account in Asia.
The Stolen Asset Recovery (STAR) initiative was launched jointly by
the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the World Bank Group
(WBG) to respond to the problem of stolen funds. Given the nature of
the problem, success depended critically upon forging and
strengthening partner-ships among developed and developing countries,
as well as other bilateral and multilateral agencies with an interest
in the problem.
The UNODC-WBG StAR initiative is an integral part of the World Bank
Group’s recently approved Governance and Anti-Corruption Strategy,
which recognizes the need to help developing countries, organizations
and individuals recover stolen assets. The international legal
framework underpinning STAR is provided by the UN Convention Against
Corruption, and we are at the forefront of the campaign.
Please confirm immediately if you actually authorized anyone to divert
your funds. We shall commence with the process of releasing your
recovered funds to your account upon receipt of your response to this
message if you are not aware of the activities of the culprits.
Director - FMD
ICPO - National Central Bureau London
