Dear Friend,

I Am Philips Weah, secretary to Dr. Timothy Hanson. I writing
to let you know about your $850, 000, 00? that my boss issued
on your name before his travel out for his business purpose.
Before he travels out he instructed me to send you the total
money through Western Union Money Transfer because it will
be less expensive and reliable for you to be receiving your
daily $5000 dollar until you receive your total money

It is easier, and safer to just send the whole amount in a
cashier's check. Then you can just send it regular registered
mail. I don't see a reason for $55 every $5000, and you mention
a larger amount at the end when its complete?

Meanwhile, the manager stated yesterday that, the director
administrator trust funds have already signed and approved
your payment, which you will be receiving your payment
5000.00 Us Dollars immediately you sent them their transfer
charge of $55 and it will serve as reconfirmation of your
file payment from the office in charge.

So you are to contact them on below information,
Vital Finance Bank Western Union Department.
Location Address; Plot 1261, Adeola Hopewell Street CO/B/REP,
Contact Person: Rev. Dr Frank Bello
Tele phone Number: +229 9315 88 02
Email Address:
Be advise that the $55 is a compulsory as they told me that
is only money you will pay until you receive your payment
completely .So reconfirm your details to avoid any hitches
in receiving your full payments.This is what they need from you
Your name::::::::::::
Receiver name:::::::::::::::::::::
Test question?::::::
Also do let me know immediately they have started sending
you your money, but try to comply with them to enable them
serve you better.
Philips Weah.
