Hi, I am just dropping by on this kinkos store to email you and let you know that I have just sent the payment via Western Union in your name as I do not have your account details correct. I also want you to have the payment information below: Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN): 364-120-7690 Amount Sent: $105,000 USD Text Question: Favourite Colour? Answer:Green You can go to any Western Union location right now and pick up the cash quick. I hope that you have a Western Union card?You will need this to send or claim amount above $6,000 USD from any Western Union agent location. My company will be sending my team to Chile this week. I am already on my way to join my team in completing the unfinished bridge construction project in Chile. We may leave town tomorrow and I couldn't go without dropping the payment information with you. We may spend 2 to 3 months there before the job would be completely finished. Remember that if you do not claim the money before 9 days, they will call back the money to my card. And if you do not have the Western Union Promo/Gold Card,you cannot pick up the cash. I may not be around to reply any of your emails now, but I will talk to you as soon as I return. If you do not have a Western Union card, you may contact the western union agent details below so that they will provide a Western Union card for youimmediately and also send you a copy of the voucher of the payment that I made, via email. Contact the office below for your Western Union card: Contact Person: melvin clifford Email:email@example.com Send the below details to him Your Full Name: MTCN number: (as above) Telephone: Address: (including state and zip code) As soon as the office gets the above information, they will use the credentials to create your Western Union card right away without any delay. That is all to it. I hope to talk to you as soon as we are back on the errand or call it project. See ya. Terry Noland.
