international levels in line to foreign contracts settlement.
I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some
nominated accounts as these accounts have been identified either as ghost
accounts, unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced sum etc. I can now include your
name among the people expecting the funds to be transferred into their account,
on this note; I wish to have a deal with you as regards to this unpaid funds. I
have all the files before me and hope to fix your data correctly once i hear
