DEAR FRIEND, You have to read this to amend your mistakes my dear, I am contacting you because of the information I saw about your fund payment file, this will be of a great help to redeem you from all difficulties you have been experiencing in regards to your over due payment due to excessive demand for money from you by the non officials departments. I am JOHN R. LOWE from FL. USA. I am one of those beneficiaries that are to be compensated by the Nigeria Government many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had spent over 100.000.00 US Dollars trying to get my payment and all to no avail, One faithful morning, I got an e-mail from a Man called Alexander David from Oregon in USA telling me to stop dealing with people that's contacting me,and contact a Barrister in Nigeria to receive my funds which I did by traveling down to Nigeria, I was directed to meet a Barrister in the country (Nigeria) and it happened to be the same barrister David told me about, I told him my problem,Be hold he explained everything to me, he said that whoever that's contacting us through emails for ATM Card, UPS, DHL and Cashier Check E.T.C are FAKE, After, he took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment, Right now I am the happiest man on this planet earth today because I have received my long overdue compensation payment of $8,500,000.00 million USD, Moreover the payment Barrister, also showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email Address and your fund amount as one of the beneficiaries that has money in the same bank(CBN), which made me email you, be advice that those people contacting and extorting money from you are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you, I advise you to stop any contact with them and contact the payment Barrister to claim your funds without any further delay, his E-mail.... ( email@example.com ). while contacting him please note the only money I paid to receive my fund was just $580.00 for the cost of obtaining my Fund Clearance Certificate. It's now left for you to give the Barrister some money for helping you,that's after you must have received your funds. I am a living testimony Praise master Jesus AMEN. Yours Truthfully JOHN R. LOWE. 10850 NW 70TH AVE. CHIEFLAND, FLORIDA 32626-4244
