Dear Friend I know you will be very happy to hear that the bank have remove the embargo placed on the money, I told you that all we need to do is to pray, you can see that after 2 months the bank call me today to come to the bank, as soon as I got there, they told me that, they have concluded there investigation on the money, that the reason why the money was investigated is because of the amount. And I do agree with them. Like as I told you before that this US$8.2Million will be check if the money comes from drug trafficking or any illegal business, so after I travel to my country to get the FUND affidavit that prove the authenticity of the money, then they release it today. After I came back from my travel I find out that my email address is blocked and that is where I have all your details. Your email address I have it in my head. Please the bank need to transfer the money this week, they need your complete account details. i need your phone number address again. Please try and send your banking details today so that I can submit it immediately. Please call me as soon as you receive this email.
