Office :Debt and Fund Management 
Your Ref:Unpaid Fund. 

I am an auditor in an European bank and clearing house. 

Our duty is to look into transaction records of banks, securities companies and financial houses 
within Europe. 

We also work in collaboration with American, Asian, African and Australian clearing houses. During 
my investigation on un-paid debts from different banks and securities companies, i discovered that 
you are to be paid for an INHERITED FUND/CONTRACT FUND,which requires presentation of certain 
documents and payment of fees before the fund could be released to you. 

I want to inform you that the problem you are having is from your agent,partners and the lawyer who 
is representing you. 

They do not reveal the reason for the delay of your payment and the reason you should pay the money 
they demand from you. 

My reason for contacting you is to inform you to stop payment of any such to the lawyer or to the 
financial,bank and securities companies as you will not receive your fund due to some anomalies we 
discovered in your file. 

We are to protect your interest contact me immediately so we can advice you on how you will receive 
your fund without any impediment. 

You are hereby advised to maintain constant contact with me and avoid any interaction with 
unscrupulous agents, partner’s or lawyer's. 

Yours faithfully,
