In this regard a meeting was held between the Board of Directors of WESTERN UNION, MONEYGRAM, the FBI alongside with the Ministry of Finance, As a consequence of our investigations it was agreed that the sum of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars (U.S.250,000.00) should be transferred to you out from the funds that The United States Department of the Treasury has set aside as compensation payment for scam victims.
