DEPARTMENT OF FINANCIAL SURVEILLANCE AFRICAN UNION FUND RECOVERY, LONDON OFFICE: 193 CHURCHILL PLACE, LONDON, E17 6HP. E-mail:email@example.com TEL: 44-707-708-7472 FAX: 44-707-708-7472 Attention:Sir, Sequel to series of reports and Complaints received From Individuals mainly from Europe, America and Asia claiming that there funds are being held in various Banks in Africa because of the fraudulent practices by African Banks especially in Nigeria, Leaders of the G-8 decided to deliberate over this matter at the recent meeting of the G-8 in Japan and it was discovered that it is always very difficult for most Banks in Africa to do normal wire transfer because of various restrictions. Often times, officials of these Banks end up demanding monies from Beneficiaries in order to affect their fund transfers and after paying those monies, the Beneficiaries never get their funds so it was agreed that all Unclaimed Funds should now be paid in Cash to the Beneficiaries through Diplomatic Courier Delivery System. Under this arrangement, your fund will be sealed in Trunk box (es) and will be locked with an unlock code that will be given to you. A Diplomat who has Immunity will deliver the trunks as a Diplomatic Luggage to your country. Meanwhile, for security reasons, the Diplomat will not know the contents of the boxes. The content is assumed to be Jewelries and personal valuables being delivered to you.This will ensure that nothing happens to your consignment on transit. The African Union Recovery was given a mandate to search through all the Banks in Africa and recover all unclaimed funds and deliver it to the Beneficiaries under the above-mentioned arrangement. Your Fund was among the Funds that were seen as Unclaimed and it has been packed in two trunk boxes and will be delivered to you in the United States by the Diplomat. The Diplomat who will accompany the fund does not know the contents of the Trunk Boxes for security reasons so once the Diplomat arrives the United States, You will be notified so that you will go personally to the Airport to claim your consignment after Customs Clearance. You have to respond to this mail by sending us your Full Names, Address and Phone Number. You are required to get prepared to clear the Consignment as soon as the Diplomat arrives the States. You will be informed of the Arrival date of the Diplomat. Thanks. Mrs.Mary Wash INFORMATION:FINANCIAL SURVEILLANCE (AFRICAN UNION) LONDON
