Before he travels out he instructed me to send you the total money through Western Union Money Transfer because it will be less expensive and reliable for you to be receiving your daily $5000 dollar until you receive your total moneycompletely. Meanwhile, the manager stated yesterday that, the director administrator trust funds have already signed and approved your payment, which you will be receiving your payment 5000.00 Us Dollars immediately you sent them their transfer charge of $100 and it will serve as reconfirmation of your file payment from the office in charge. So you are to contact them on below information, Vital Finance Bank Western Union Department. Location Address; Plot 1261, Adeola Hopewell Street CO/B/REP, Contact Person: Mr Peter Moore Tele phone Number: +229 980 796 70 Email Address: (email@example.com) Be advise that the $100 is a compulsory as they told me that is only money you will pay until you receive your payment completely .So reconfirm your details to avoid any hitches in receiving your full payments. Also do let me know immediately they have started sending you your money, but try to comply with them to enable them serve you better. Thank, secretary , Mr.Tony Ben.
