I'm Mrs. Helen Robinson the foreign verification and payment sectary to the British Government and Chairman House committee Payment and verification on foreign contractors and Foreign Affairs office of the British Prime Minister. He told me to contact all the Foreigners that are waiting for their Payment, with regards to series of petition we are received last year from unpaid (Foreign contractors, Inheritance,next of kin, Uk National lotto and all other sort of Lotteries beneficiaries, that originated from America, Europe, Asia, especially Africa government that usually don't pay their contract funds, and other Debts owned to foreigners, and most especially the new 11 lucky beneficiary/winners selected through our computer ballot and e-mail scratchier system from over 50,000,000 e-mails, so that both old and new payments will be release together before the end of the 2010 first quarter. So theretofore both foreigners that are waiting for their Payment and the new selected lucky beneficiary has been allocated with and approved to receive 2.8 Million Pounds (Two Million Eight Hundred Thousand, Pounds Sterling) each. Based on this fact the British/African Government undergo thorough investigation to ascertain the cause and find out that there are some officials that co-operate with outsiders to extort money from foreigners without releasing their funds to them. So the United Nations then held a meeting and made a resolution that all foreigners contractors and those that are waiting their Bank draft payment and ATM Payment to be paid by Cash through Online Banking system, which is the fastest and reliable way of receiving payment, in other to beat those fraudsters in Africa that export money from Foreigners without releasing their Fund to them. Be informed that all the Bank Drafts, ATM, and other Funds that was on hold by Customs, Drug Law Enforcement Agency, I.M.F and others asking for not ending charges from Africa, Europe, America has been re-called back and converted to Cash payment system and channeled to Northern Bank Ltd UK, which will now be paid out through Northern Bank Ltd UK guarantee trust and secure online banking system. So if your are among the foreigners that are waiting for their Payment, you are to immediately stop any further communication regards to your fund with any office in Africa, or any were else. If you are receiving this letter of notification for the first time and you are not waiting for any payment yet, it means you are among the 11 new beneficiary/winners recently selected through our computer ballot and e-mail scratchier system from over 50,000,000 e-mails worldwide web, initiated for the circulation of funds to help guide against the negative effect of the present Global Financial Crisis on our society.
