We were meant to understand from our findings that you have been going through hard ways by paying alot of charges to the hands of some unscrupulous element that are using this project as an avenue to scam innocent people off their hard earned money by impersonating the Executives of Western Union. It is our pleasure to inform you that ATM VISA Card has been approved in your name and upgraded with your entire funds.


     ATM card number: **** **** **** **** withheld for security reason

     The secret PIN number: ****

         FDIC Insured

         Useable in over 210 countries

         Usable at more than one million ATMs worldwide

         $25,000 per day cash withdrawal limit


The card can be used to obtain cash throughout the country at any of the hundreds of thousands of ATMs in the MAC and PLUS networks. But, due to your inability and delay to claim this card, the western union management decided to close the account and return the card to the government of west Africa as unclaimed payment as the law demanded within 7days today. And to my greatest surprise one barrister Jonathan appeared in my office with application letter to claim this card, claiming to be your legal representative. He told me that you asked him to claim the card on your behalf since you are not capable to handle the transaction. Right now, I need your urgent reply to this message and confirm to me the truth of the matter before the management will approved the payment in his name. Please write down your real and correct name and shipping address, including the postal code and your phone number carefully and completely.

Yours faithfully,
Dr. Khalid FELLAHI
