I am Nathan Sheets, Under Secretary for International Affairs, the U.S. Department of the Treasury. You can get more details about me here;
I have been saddled with the responsibility of liaising with beneficiaries regarding all previously unpaid/unclaimed funds and be sure all such funds are paid on or before the end of the second quarter of the fiscal year 2016. Disbursement of all funds have recently just commenced.
An agreement was recently reached between the Treasury Department and International Monetary Fund for us to settle all outstanding payments accrued to individuals/corporations with respect to local and overseas contract payment, debt re-scheduling and outstanding compensation payment. Fortunately, you have been selected alongside a few other beneficiaries to receive your own payment of $850,000 (Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars only).
We have been notified that you are yet to receive your fund valued at $850,000. This money will hence be transferred to your nominated bank account.
You are advised to kindly reply this email with the below details enclosed to help us process your payment;
(1) Full Names:
(2) Residential Address:
(4) Phone/Cell Number:
Under Secretary for International Affairs
