Barclays Bank London From: The Desk of Mr. Peter Gary Managing Director, RE: PAYMENT OF US$800,000.00 INTEREST INTO YOUR ACCOUNT: I am Mr. Robert Peels Managing Director, Corporate Services Division and Head of Swift Transfer Unit of Barclays Bank London. Sometime ago, lotto/inheritance fund was brought to our office from National Lotto Group here in England and after some period, the money was taken back to their treasury. But for the period of time this money was us, it generated an interest of US$800,000.00 which we are about to pay you. For your information and advice, you need to hasten up to pick this Fund because from time to time the National Lotto Group auditors do come to our bank to cross-check our files and our financial update, the earlier you comply with the demands of the release of the fund, the faster the action, because when the auditors arrive and find out that this interest fund is still in our bank they will call back the accrued interest to the lotto treasury account. What we need from you now is any form of your identification for example;your International passport or your driver license,your telephone and fax numbers for easy communication to you with your mailing address where this Draft will be delivered. As a matter of fact we dont have enough time to waste since we have wasted time in contacting you so try and comply with the entire necessary requirement for the transaction. Contact Larry Jack email@example.com Phone No: +44 762 419 9027 Fax No: +44 700 598 0062 Note I had to send you a mail on this email address whcih is on the play ticket in your payment file as the winner. Expecting your immediately response. Yours Sincerely, Mr. Robert Peels Managing Director
