Dear Sir/madam, Its my pleasure to inform you that i have verified from the bank director regarding the transfer of your fund and it was goodnews because the requested fee was less expensive for you to afford. your consignment containing your fund ($1,500.000.00) have been deposited with the BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) so that your fund will be wired to your account immediately. you are to contact the bank director with your banking details. However I went to BANK OF AFRICA to discuss this with the bank director to make sure there will be no hindrance. Sir Alexander Okwu told me that your fund can be transfered to you via a direct wire transfer(KTT) into your account. He told me to instruct you to contact the bank to apply for a direct wire transfer into your account to avoid loosing your fund due to delay. Therefore you can contact the bank with below information,send to them your banking information. BANK OF AFRICA TEL/FAX:+229 99273332 EMAIL: ( email@example.com ) (BOA) FOREIGN OPERATION DIRECTOR. SIR ALEXANDER OKWU Send an email to the bank with the above bank email address and apply for your wire transfer as i have informed the bank about you already. On receipt of your fund into your account endeavour to inform me immediately you receive your fund in your account. the director told me that the only fee you are to pay is $290.00 usd for the opening of new international account there in their bank that will be used to transfer the fund to your destinated account in your country and it will also serve as the bank transfer charges. Yours faithfully, Dr John Eri
