The reason why we are contacting you was because a lady by name Linda Rossel came to the ATM CARD PAYMENT CENTER today with a written letter that they should approve the funds on your behalf to her as your representative, so please check and know if you send any body by that name to claim this funds on your behalf as we will facilitate the transfer of the funds to her immediately. She has done the necessary requirements and she has already paid for the delivery fees. But we are still confused in sending the funds to her because your details was in the letter that is why i have decided to contact you personally. So all i want you to do now is to contact the ATM CARD PAYMENT CENTER and tell them that you did not send anybody to claim your fund, but if we confirm that you are not the person that sent her, we will have no option than to detain her immediately and she is going to rot in jail forever. Your payment file was accessed today and we found out that your funds which is valued at the sum of $5million usd has not been paid yet because of lack of compliance with the directives as regards the delivery of your ATM CARD to you. We have also contacted the ATM CARD COMPANY that issued the ATM CARD to you and they informed us that your ATM CARD can be activated online, this services enable you to make transfers or pay online bills from your computer at home direct to any bank account of your choice.They also have a fast access delivery which means that your ATM CARD can be delivered to you upon 6hours after the delivery requirements has been acknowledged, so you will have to choose the option that you think will be the best for you and have it in mind that you have only 24 hours to complete this process or the ATM CARD will be sent to Miss Linda Rosell because she has paid for the delivery fee and we will be left with no choice than to send her the fund. Since the Federal Bureau of Investigation is involved in this transaction, you have to be rest assured for this is 100% risk free it is our duty to protect the American Citizen. All I want you to do is to contact the ATM CARD CENTER via email for their requirements to proceed for the delivery of you ATM CARD to your door step on your behalf which will cost you $200.00 only.
