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:

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,
