Dear Sir / Madam, 


You are welcomed to the Western Union Money Transfer Ouagadougou - Burkina Faso, West Africa. 


The Federal Government Of Burkina Faso awarded us contract to pay the Internet Scam Victims who lost their money or was duped by the Internet Fraudsters / Scammers here in Burkina Faso, as a compensation for loosing their money in this country.


This is to notify you that you were among 250 scam victims we were instructed to pay the sum of $10,000 United States Dollars.

Dr. Moses Ouedraogo instructed that each of the 250 scam victims will come up with our transfer charges sum of $320 USD before we should transfer and can give the person the Money Transfer Control Number, the text question & answers which the person can be use to pick up his/her $10,000 USD in his/her country Western Union Money Transfer Agents.The reason why all the scam victims should pay the transfer charge is to avoid wrong claimment or misdirection of funds.
