DEAR SIR, RE: LONG OVER DUE CONSIGNMENT IN YOUR NAME. I AM DR. OLIVER MBEKI, THE DIRECTOR OF FINANCE ON FOREIGN PAYMENT. I WAS INSTRUCTED BY OUR APEX BANK TO FIND OUT BEFORE THE END MONTH WHY YOUR CONSIGNMENT VALUED US$10.3M OF YOUR CONTRACT PART PAYMENT STILL UNCLAIMED. HOWEVER, THERE ARE TWO (2) GENTLEMEN HERE WHO CAME FROM YOUR COUNTRY TO CLAIM THIS CONSIGNMENT ON YOUR BEHALF AND THE REASON GIVEN TO US IS THAT YOU ARE THE ONE WHO SENT THEM BECAUSE OF YOUR POOR HEALTH CONDITION. ALL THAT WE WANT TO KNOW IS IF YOU ARE AWARE OF THESE GENTLEMEN VISIT? IF YES, KINDLY PUT IT IN WRITING AND INDICATE THEIR NAMES AND PASSPORT IDENTIFICATION NO IN ORDER TRANSACT AND RELEASE THE FUND TO THEM. IF WE DID NOT HEAR FROM YOU, WE WILL NOT RELEASE THE FUND TO THEM. THANKS AND GOD BLESS DR. OLIVER MBEKI
