Attention Beneficiary:

We wish to inform you that you have been scheduled to be paid $280,000.00 through our Automated 
teller machine card (ATM Card) which you will only be required to proceed to any ATM Cash Point to 
withdraw the sum of $400 per day till the payment is completed.

This development is as a result of a just concluded yearly program where 10 individuals get cash 
benefits from our bank. These 10 beneficiaries are selected randomly through personal websites, 
account holders etc. Being an international bank, we endeavor to make this opportunity available to 
everyone, no matter the location.

We normally use FedEx for all our international shipments. To enable the shipment take place you 
will have to pay the sum of $150 shipping fees. These are FedEx charges and not for the bank, we 
only help to receive these funds on their behalf and will immediately inform them to ship your ATM 
card once we confirm payments.

We are sorry as we cannot deduct from your funds to pay for the Shipping/Transfer charges. This is 
in accordance with section 13(1-2) of the new payment policy Act as adopted in 1993 and amended on 
3rd July 1998 by the external review committee on debt. This is to protect our clients and to avoid 
misappropriation of funds by officials.

Furthermore you are advised to contact me ASAP for the issuance of your ATM card and my e-mail 
address is When you contact me, kindly provide your;

This information will be used to process your card before it's issued out to you. I will like to 
know if you still want me to proceed. I humbly await your instructions.
