Dear Sir/Madam, There is an issue with the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER in the amount of $750,000.00 USD directed in cash credited to file WMT/902U118K07-10 at the owner of this email address. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) contacted us for your COMPENSATION due to your allocated security code and choose to send it to an email address instead of a name for security. We are unable to complete a transfer directed at an email address, so we require some more information to verify it with what we have on file in order to complete this transfer and make sure we are not paying the wrong beneficiary. FULL NAME: FULL CONTACT ADDRESS: PHONE NUMBER: OCCUPATION: COUNTRY: MARITAL STATUS: AGE: In order to resolve this problem, Immediately we receive the above information we shall forward your COMPENSATION funds $750,000.00 USD to Standard Chartered Bank for onward transfer as Western Union® do not handle transfer of such magnitude. When emailing, please use reference number #250-147 for our mutual convenience. Mr. Didi Greenfield Director, Transfer Department Western Union®. 200 Hammersmith Rd London W6 7DL, United Kingdom.
