This is as result of the recent provision in the 2009 fiscal year budget that was made for scammed victims,to be attended to. But due to the late registration of your name on the list of the people I have to pay, I will not be able to pay you much because of insufficient fund,so I will only pay you $550,000.00 as compensation to what has happened to you.
