INVESTIGATION INTO YOUR DELAYED PAYMENT
We wish to inform you that it has come to our notice through our online security service that a huge amount of United States Dollars was scheduled to be remitted into your bank account a few months ago.
According to the report we received from the paying bank here in London, it states expressly that you have been dealing with the wrong people who have used several fake documents to obtain money from you for payment of charges/fees which we consider to be obnoxious.
We have been mandated to step into your transaction and put a STOP ORDER pending until you revert to us for clarification why your money is been delayed more than is necessary. You are hereby advised to stop further communications with your partners in Africa and Europe and co-operate with us to assist you get your payment in record time.
The government of the United Kingdom will not hesitate to bring you to book
if you ignore this notice as your payment is causing so much embarrassment to our government and global financial Institutions who repose so much trust in the British banking sector for competence and accountability.
We have resolved with the internal Minister that your money should be paid to you through an Interswitch ATM Card (Automatic Teller Machine) You will only be allowed to withdraw $50,000 per day. The ATM will be loaded with $10,000,000.00 (Ten Million United States Dollars Only. This is inline with the international monetary regulations that not more than $10M should be loaded in an ATM Card. The PIN (Personal Identification Number) would be sent to you alone to your private email box for security reasons.
In view of the foregoing, you are expected to send us your mailing address where you wish the ATM card to me mailed to you by a UK Courier Company. You must also send us proof of ownership of the said fund before we can be
able to process your ATM Card. This is for security reasons as there are many fraudsters on the internet.
We look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
