This is Bill Wadden of United States of America, Washington DC. We wish to inform you that six (6) persons has been arrested who were involved in extorting money from foreigners.
I am contacting you today in respect of a high inflow of news about some body name (with held), and others, these unknown persons who have ripped off people' s money through internet scam, my agency is working seriously to put them and other culprits behind bars. We understand through their confession that you are one of the victim. We were further told that you are entitled to the fund in question but because you do not know the right person assigned to handle your payment, they ceased the opportunity to extort money from you.
This is to officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly completed an investigation with the help of our Intelligence Monitoring Network System that you legally have an outstanding fund to claim outside the United States of America. During our investigation we discovered that your fund will be paid through a cashier' s check, Bank Draft or telegraphic transfer.
Normally, it will take up to 10 business days for an International Check or Draft to be cashed by your local banks. We have successfully notified the bank on your behalf that funds are to be drawn from a registered bank within the United States of America or your country so as to enable you cash the check instantly without any delay if you prefer to receive your fund through a certified bank Draft and if it will be through telegraphic transfer you are expected to swear an affidavit of oath based on what we were told. Your fund will be released through ICBC Securities and Finance Limited while American citizens would be paid through a check/draft from an American bank.
We have completed this investigation and you are hereby approved to receive the fund as we have verified the entire transaction to be Safe and 100% risk free, due to the fact that the funds have been deposited in the banks you will be required to settle the following bills directly to the officials in charge to enhance the provision of the requested document to empower the release of your fund/entitlement.
The total amount is $1,850.50 (One Thousand Eight Hundred and fifty USD Fifty Cent ) We have tried our possible best to indicate that this $1,850.50 should be deducted from your fund but we found out that the funds have already been deposited in an American bank/ICBC Securities and Finance Limited in Thailand and cannot be accessed by any Two except the legal owner (you) and that is after the affidavit of validation is obtained and send to the bank, therefore you will be required to pay the above stated fee to the official in-charge of this transaction via Western Union Money Transfer or bank account coordinate. Whether you want to receive your fund through telegraphic transfer, Draft or Check, you must swear the affidavit of validation to enable you receive your fund.
I hereby recommend the true and rightful email addresses and name of the officials to be contacted regarding the transfer of your fund Dennis Robinson firstname.lastname@example.org , Gladys Brayton email@example.com and Senator Maureen Usman firstname.lastname@example.org . Feel free to contact me through my private email address email@example.com in terms of any question but there is no need of replying this mail because we just want to bring this situation/development to your knowledge.
