I passed your payment file to the paymaster General of Federation to update the out going fund in your favour through our correspondence bank JP Morgan Chase Bank N.Y directing him to verify some irregularity over your fund transfer application in respect of a fresh submission coming from one Mr. Cornelis Theodorus Van Gerwen for your personal details, name, address and banking information to be change as he intends paying the fees in advance and securing required Performance Bond which you will pay after you receive you fund.

Please do get back to me now to confirm this before something goes wrong completely because this 2nd applicant is physically present in the country now and will be attending the final meeting with the authorities on this matter.
If you never gave such instruction to that effect, then something is wrong somewhere and the earlier you inform me the better so that necessary legal steps will be taken before the final meeting with the authorities reconfirm your bank account information, account and your direct phone number, before you end up working for a GOLD digger.
