Good Day, I am the Head of foreign payment department. I have been mandated to inform you about the recent development as in payment this money after our board meeting, your case was mentioned and we have agreed to pay you without any further delay so I would required you to desist from any partner(s); associates either abroad or onshore; with respect to this ongoing fund transfer. The Federal Government has mandated the payment commission that all payment that has been overdue and those owed by the government would be paid unilaterally to the tune of $5m (Five Million U.S Dollars Only). Therefore all we will pay you now is the US$5m and the rest afterwards. I would like you to employ transparency and honesty in this regards because aiding and abetting will only keep your payment pending so I will like you to confirm the following to avoid any mistake or wrong transfer. The total fund belonging to you etc, the requested information is to ensure that no mistake or error is made and it should be forwarded in the manner stated below: Your Full Name: Your Complete Address: Direct Telephone Number: Mobile Number: Fax Number: TREAT AS UTMOST URGENCY, Barr.
