Attn

With due respect, I write to inquire from you, if you sent somebody from Switzerland Mr. Schemrlt 
Ormar and some London representatives Mrs. Lizzy Rooney, Mr. Phillip Baker to make claim on your 
approved funds of USD6.4M.

recently we received a directive from the office of the British Prime Minister, ordering this bank 
to settle all genuine payment which include contractors, Inheritance and Lottery Winners, whose 
debts has been outstanding for a long time now, Meanwhile at about 9:A.M, British time today, Mr. 
Schemrlt Ormar was at the Bank saying that you sent them to make claim on your behalf. At that 
point I instructed for the release of the funds to them as they presented some vital documents 
covering the funds such as: Irrevocable approval order with Release Code: 
HSBC/BMF/GNC/3830/02/00-07, International Remittance Receipt Number; Hsbcbank5685Px, Reference 
No.-35460021, Allocation No: 674632, Pin Code No: 55674 and your Certificate of Merit Payment No: 
103, Telex confirmation No: -1114433 As confirmed by our KTT unit; 
 
On verifying the documents they presented we discovered that the bank details they presented was 
totally different and the beneficiary of the account they brought was Changori & Sanayi that made 
us to suspect them, this is a very serious matter in the Bank because of the mandate we have to 
release this funds to you.

We have requested them to forward a Power of attorney from you, informing the bank of the sudden 
change of account itinerary, this they could not produce immediately. I have asked them to come 
back in three working days to enable me communicate with you as regards verifying how genuine these 
people are to you, although they promised to produce the power of attorney on their next visit to 
the bank.

I consider this a top priority by contacting you and to ascertain the true position of things in 
order to avoid remitting these funds to a wrong account.

Find below the account details they presented for your confirmation/perusal.

against them, but if they are from you, we will appreciate your corporation by given them the power 
of attorney to that effect.
