                            SUB: TRANSFER RE-ROUTING ADVISE

This is to bring to your notice that we have  received advise from our partner bank to re-direct 
and wire transfer the sum of $6,700,000 (Six Million Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars 
only) from the South African Reserve Bank to your overseas account in your country being part of 
outstanding amount. 


This re-direction and Re-routing of transfer through the Reserve Bank South Africa, was made in 
keeping with working partnership reached with the World Bank during a recent G20 Economic Summit in 
Seoul, South Korea. 


Originally, the said funds was inappropriately placed in a country/bank without proper procedures 
leading to encumbrances which resulted in the difficulty you have faced in getting the funds 
remitted to your account. 


It might interest you to know that South Africa was chosen to make this payments by the World Bank 
and G20 Summit largely because of its renowned financial transparency and the role it plays in the 
African continent as the largest economy and as well the fact that many of these debts owed 
originated from African governments/banks. We are now ready to wire these funds to your account 
based on our binding agreement with World Bank and G20 economic powers. To make the swift 
orders/process go smoothly, we would warn you to STOP\IGNORE forthwith any communication or 
correspondence with/from any individual or institution who might contact you with regard to the 
funds transfer. To ensure the funds is transferred without hindrance, you are advised to restrict 
communications to us only at this official email and report any 
correspondence/communication from any individual or institution/bank for necessary action.

For further proceeding, you are advised to update us with your full banking details for 
re-confirmation and documentation of swift transmission.

Therefore, attached is the DIGITAL BANKING CUSTOMER CONFIRMATION C17 FORM, which you are advised to 
fill out carefully and submit/fax to our department with a copy of your identification documents 
for verification and approval/transfer of funds to your account upon certification of Beneficiary 

Please note that your Account’s Officer responsible for funds transfer is Mr. Austin Bali and you 
can contact him at any of the above information.

Yours Sincerely,

Ms Applegirl Goodman
