They said that they choose to send it to an email address instead of a name so that the fund can be safe and avaliable to pick up by the beneficially due to such development. But we are unable to complete the transfer directed at an email address.So we require some more information in order to complete this transfer.
YOUR FULL NAME:RECEIVER'S ADDRESS:MOBILE PHONE NUMBER:OCCUPATION:A COPY OF IDENTIFICATION:In order to resolve this problem,please email via Western Union (SFVD) Solicitors Fund Verification
As soon as this information is received payment will be made to your nominated bank account or at the counter directly from the Western Union Transfering Bank.Note: That this is not one of those scammers that all they are after is to ripe off people money and at the end you will not receive your funds.
