                                       INTERNATIONAL COMPENSATION ON FOREIGN PAYMENT (FILE CODE - HM/IMF/7890/121)
You are being contacted by this office today dated (29th of November 2010) because your Case File is on the shortlisted top list report on our Cabinet which must be resolved as quickly as possible.
We have taken time to completely review your online email communication messages on your unsuccessful transactions with most international lottery/contract award winning organizations, and other foreign banks. We wish to let you know that we have communicated with most of these foreign banking institutions that withheld most international payments to individual accounts so as to find out why these funds were withheld, the source of the funds and a final solution to this problem.
Conclusively, we discovered that most withheld and/or unpaid funds which originated from lottery organizations, international trading company's awarded contract funds and deceased personals where not properly filed for international fund payment to its beneficiary account by the fund beneficiary approved to receive such funds.
Such transfer suspension was placed on these funds because majority of these international fund remittance/transfer of over the total sum of $500,000 and above to private European/Non European residence accounts abroad, usually carried out by foreign Banks, Private or Commercial Courier Companies were never properly recorded by the paying institution for future file reference/assessment by the International Monetary Fund and the Financial Services Authority.
In joint alliance with the European Financial Service Commission & the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to resolve this issue, we wish to let you know that we have been approved to compensate you with only the total sum of Three Million Great British Pounds Sterling (3,000,000.00 GBP =  4,704,406.46 USD) to enable you start up your own business.
In response to this decision, we got the International Finance Auditors to apply backward in time so that you can use the violation of the existing law to get your awarded lottery funds on time. We were able to gain an approval authorization letter from the Court Service which stated that these funds will be released to its beneficiary's account on proper confirmation of its claim.
You need to properly apply for your awarded fund payment by sending us your personal information below along with a scanned copy of your international passport or drivers license so that we will forward it for verification and payment.
By the virtue of the provision of the law which confer on us powers to advocate, adjudicate suspend and authorize an immediate transfer of your funds internationally, we hereby state emphatically and without prejudice that should there be any information that may succeed your application for unclaimed awarded fund release that are currently deposited in most foreign banks in Europe, Asia and in Africa, please do not hesitate to provide us the information so that we will know how to help you receive your funds.
Important Notice: Your inability to submit your application for your fund payment will continue to suspend your chances of receiving any international fund payment directed to your local bank account from any existing foreign bank until this clarification is made.
Failure to properly apply for the fund release will nullify your chances of receiving your unpaid international funds, and these funds will be confiscated and made to be forfeited under the Money Laundering and Other Financial Crime Prohibition Act of 2003.
