According to information gathered from the bank’s security computer we were notified that you have waited long enough to receive this payment without success, we also confirmed that you have met all statutory requirements in respect of your pending payment. This is to congratulate you and officially inform you that your over due payment has been approved for immediate payment by direct cash delivery in your country. This new method of payment was personal approved because of the fraudulent practices going on in our Apex Bank and most of our Global Payment Centers which have failed to carry out their duties effectively. All you need to do now is to forward immediately the following information: 1) Your Full name and delivery address 2) Direct phone number (Cell phone preferably) and fax number (If any) 3) Age, Sex and Occupation (For application process of the Non residential Tax papers) Before the departure of your trunk box, we shall process your non-residential tax certificate which will prove that you are the rightful beneficiary of the fund; it will also clear you from tax payment on your contract fund upon the arrival of the cargo. Note, our commercial Attache / Diplomat will contact you upon the arrival of your consignment before the delivery to your contact address where you will sign the recipient invoice and produce your identification before they hand over your cargo to you. We wait your response accordingly. Yours faithfully, David Ferdinand Director, Cash Payment Dept.
