CONFIRMATION OF YOUR FUND TRANSFER In the course of our General Auditing and Account revision of this second quarter of the year 2010, we discovered that the Bank Accounts belonging to some Benefactors have been changed on the basis that the owners have died some time last year or have given out an authorization note of change of data. After the investigations however, it was revealed that there are Foreigners who are collaborating with Retired Staff to make these changes illegally without the knowledge of the Bonafide Benefactors and one traced to your own change is this MRS LINDA RITZ,of MASTERS DELIVERY & SERVICES (UK) who said you are dead, hence they have forwarded a death certificate in your bearing our name so as to divert your funds. They have also forwarded the bank account below as the new account that will receive this money. Bank: Hang Seng Bank Bank Address: 83 Des Veoux Road, Central - Hong Kong Account Name: Rick Jones Account Number: 235-325172-882 Bank Code: 024 Swift Code: HASEHKHH But we wanted to confirm if actually this is true and decided to write to your email address for confirmation, which after one (1) week from today and there is no response, we shall then carry out payment in their favour. If proved otherwise by you that you did not die, please forward to us all the related Benefactors particulars including your Telephone number,contact address.copy of your ID These details from you will help to assist us reach a conclusion that you are not dead. Anything contrary to this claim will help us charge this man to court and prosecute him while your fund will be paid to you immediately without any further delay. You have to get back to us on time for us to commence legal proceedings against Mrs. Linda Ritz and her accomplices.
