Dear Beneficiary, 

We write in regards to your delayed Contract/Inheritance 
Funds in the sum of Eight Million  Five Hundred United States Dollars(US$8,500,000.00) which you 
are yet to 
receive as a result of your inability to raise the required
fee(s) to conclude your Transaction. 

The United Nations has decided to proffer a solution that will make it easier for all the 
Beneficiaries to receive their Funds. 

We understood that some Fees are required in order process and Transfer your Funds into your 
Account. We are also aware that most Beneficiaries do not have these required fees. We have 
therefore deliberated with the Bank in charge of this payment to allow Beneficiaries the privilege 
of receiving their Funds in two (2) or three (3) installments. In this case, Beneficiaries will no 
longer be required to pay the fee at once but part of it depending on the number of installments 
such Beneficiary will like his/her Funds to be released to him/her. 

Write the Bank and request that you want your fund to be transferred to your account by 
installments payment, so that once the first payments enters into your account you can then use 
money from there to facilitate the transfer of the remaining balance, once the first installments 
enters into your account that you will equally give you another opportunity to do a telex-transfer 
and withdrawal from your account to Wood Forest Nation Bank Online transfer procedure. 

The Wood Forest Bank which is now in charge of your Payment has agreed to give the Beneficiaries 
the option of receiving their Funds at once, in two or three installments. 

This will help the beneficiaries to pay part of the fee and receive part of their Funds with which 
such beneficiary can upset the remaining fee and receive his/her complete Funds. To break this 
down: Three Hundred Dollars ($300) fee will facilitate the release of One Million United States 
Dollars (US$1,000,000.00) only. 
Six Hundred Dollars ($600) fee will facilitate the release of Two Million United States Dollars 
(US$2,000,000.00) only.One Thousand, Six Hundred Dollars ($1,600) fee which is the total fee will 
facilitate the release of your Full Contract/inheritance Funds in the sum of Eight Million, Five 
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$8,500,000.00). However, Feel free to inform us how much 
you can raise should you cannot afford any of the above Mentioned installment so as for us to talk 
to the Bank 
to know how much out of your Funds they could release to you with the amount you can come up with. 

This is the best the United Nations can do for you and you are advised to take advantage of this

NOTE: Do not be shy to indicate the amount you have in hands (no proper-amount is so small to
