Good day, We received a payment request from the African Development Bank (ADB), Cotonou Benin Du Republic. They requested that we should carry out remittance on your fund valued at US$15.5M, to your nominated account with HSBC BANK USA. We have been handling transaction for ADB but the condition is that such fund must have relevant clearance. We were told that your payment has been manipulated by the authorities in Nigeria for many years without success. However, we have alliance with the ADB not the Nigerian government because of high corruption level reported and authenticated about Nigerian officials. Hence, I will want you to confirm your full account details stated below: HSBC BANK USA , New York N.Y. 10011 USA. Account Number: 600743454 Aba Number: 021001088 Swift Code: MRMDUS33 Account Name: Alba-Kos Malesia Tours I will do my best to assist your payment remittance without further delay. I wish you the best of luck and absolute understanding. Warm regards, MCDONALD HILL Admin Department Citi Bank Plc United Kingdom Direct Line: +44 703 590 8985
