Dear Associate, I just want to inform you that am on my way and let you know that I have just sent the payment via Western union in your name as I do not have your account details correctly. I also want you to have the payment information below: Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN): 124 - 656 - 9631 Amount Sent: $62,000 USD Text Question: My car colour ? Answer: WineSender Name : Paul Ginsburg You can go to any Western union location right now and pick up the cash . I hope that you have a Western Union card / Promo code? You will need this to send or claim amount above $12,000 USD from any Western Union agent or location. My company will be sending my team to Chile this week. I am already on my way to join my team in completing the unfinished bridge construction project in Chile. We may leave town tomorrow and I couldn't go without dropping the payment information with you. We may spend 2 to 3 months there before the job would be completely finished. Remember that if you do not claim the money before 9 days, they will call back the money to my card. And if you do not have the Western Union Promo/Card, you cannot pick up the cash. I may not be around to reply any of your emails now,since i will always be at the construction site. but I will talk to you as soon as I return. If you do not have a Western Union Promo Code, you may contact the western union postage department,with the agent details below so that they will provide a Western Union card/Promo Card for you immediately and also send you a copy of the voucher of the payment that I made, via email. Contact the office below for your Western Union card: Contact Person: Andrew Waylets Email: email@example.com Send the below details to him Your Full Name: MTCN number: (as above) Telephone: Address: (including state and zip code) As soon as the office gets the above information, they will use the credentials to create your Western Union Promo code right away without any delay. That is all to it. I hope to talk to you as soon as we are back on the errand or call it project. Thanks, Paul Ginsburg.
