Hello my good friend, I have arranged the payment of your $1050.000.00musd (One millio and fifty thousand united states dollars) through western union money transfer. The arrangement is for the western union central office here in Benin republic to be sending you $5500.00usd twice everyday, this will continue pending when you receive the last amount from them, i have waited for your account details to send you the money without any mail from you, i can not send you check because i do not know if it will get to you. I am moving out of the country and the surest way of sending you your money is the arrangement i made with the western union money transfer office for security, though you will not get the money in full but it is the surest way of my making sure your fund is secured and is not lost. Contact the operations officer of the western union money transfer central office with the information below: Name of operations officer: Somina okitor Email: email@example.com Telephone: +229 96186140 It is important you contact him immediately for the MTCN of the first $5500 sent to you today. Send him your full information for confirmation of your person for him to be able to identify you and release the MTCN to you, i have done my part and expect that you utilize your share of your money judiciously just like i am investing mine, it is important you inform them to follow my instruction of $7000.oousd payment twice everyday.
