were shortlisted among the first fifteen individuals yet to be paid
hence this email. However, we received a petition today from one Mrs.
Christina Morgan that you are dead. According to her, you died in a
plane crash as such your fund should be paid to her as the apparent
heir. She has also submitted her Bank account with Wells Fargo Bank for

have decided to contact you for confirmation. If we fail to hear from
you after 72 hours, it will be assumed that the petition of Mrs.
Morgan is true and the fund will be paid to her without further delay.
Therefore, We would like you to choose below your choice of fund transfer:
