Dear Beneficiary,

Series of meetings have been held over the past 7 months with the secretary general of the United 
Nations Organization. This ended 3 days ago. It is obvious that you have not received your fund 
which is to the tune of $9.8million due to past corrupt Governmental Officials who almost held the 
fund to themselves for their selfish reason and some individuals who have taken advantage of your 
fund all in an attempt to swindle your fund which has led to so many losses from your end and 
unnecessary delay in the receipt of your fund.

The National Central Bureau of Interpol enhanced by the United Nations and Federal Bureau of 
Investigation have successfully passed a mandate to the current president of Nigeria his Excellency 
President Umaru Yar'Adua to boost the exercise of clearing all foreign debts owed to you and other 
individuals and organizations who have been found not to have receive their Contract Sum, 
Lottery/Gambling, Inheritance and the likes.

Now how would you like to receive your payment? because we have two method of payment which is by 
Check or by ATM card?

ATM Card: We will be issuing you a custom pin based ATM card which you will use to withdraw up to 
$3,000 per day from any ATM machine that has the Master Card Logo on it and the card have to be 
renewed in 4 years time which is 2014. Also with the ATM card you will be able to transfer your 
funds to your local bank account. The ATM card comes with a handbook or manual to enlighten you 
about how to use it. Even if you do not have a bank account.

Check: To be deposited in your bank for it to be cleared within three working days.

Your payment would be sent to you via any of your preferred option and would be mailed to you via 
UPS. Because we have signed a contract with UPS which should expire by the end of March 2010 you 
will only need to pay $220 instead of $520 saving you $300 So if you pay before March 28 2010 you 
save $300 Take note that anyone asking you for some kind of money above the usual fee is definitely 
a fraudsters and you will have to stop communication with every other person if you have been in 
contact with any. Also remember that all you will ever have to spend is $220.00 nothing more! 
Nothing less! And we guarantee the receipt of your fund to be successfully delivered to you within 
the next 24hrs after the receipt of payment has been confirmed.

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ANYONE UNTIL YOU READ THIS: The actual fees for shipping your ATM card is $520 
but because UPS have temporarily discontinued the C.O.D which gives you the chance to pay when

contract with them for bulk shipping which makes the fees reduce from the actual fee of $520 to 
$220 nothing more and no hidden fees of any sort!
