over-due payment and has been officially approved for payment by the G8 Government, United Nations

This is based on encouraging quick inflow of cash/liquidity into the world economy as a means of 
boosting the economy already ailing and bad. Based on this, we have been authorized by the various

beneficiaries, all outstanding payments including With-held Lottery Funds, Unpaid Inheritance 
Funds, Unpaid Contract Funds and all other Funds that have not been paid till date that are 
enlisted in the unpaid funds files with us.  

Most of these Unpaid Funds were with-held due to improper and un-official payment documentations, 
lack of proper verification documents to ascertain the legality, source/origin and authenticity of 
these funds. As a means of boosting the ailing world economy, these funds have now been properly 
documented and verified officially and we have been asked by the various government authorities 
involved together with the United Nations authority to urgently contact the recipients of these 
funds and get them released to them without delay. This is the reason why you are being contacted 
to enable you contact us urgently without delay because these funds are due for payment to the 
respective beneficiaries as indicated.  

Most of the government officials and bank officers' are working against you receiving this payment 
as they argue that you do not possess or have enough convincing documents and details to claim and 
receive the payment. You are therefore required to cease or stop any further communication, contact 
or response to any office, person or group of persons with regards to the release of your payment 
to you. You are instructed in your best interest to "only" contact/respond to us for the immediate

authorities have approved. Contact us now as we have been authorized and mandated to confirm your

The Government has therefore given us time limit within which to confirm your details and release 
the Fund and its Interest Amount to you. Failure to hear from you with your timely and urgently,
