How are you today?

I write to inform you that we have already sent you USD5000.00 dollars
through Western union as we have been given the mandate to transfer your
full compensation payment of USD1.800,000.00 via western union by this
government.

I called to give you the information through phone as internet hackers
were many but i could not reach you yesterday even this morning.So,I
decided to email you the MTCN and sender name so that you can pick up this
USD5000.00 to enable us send another USD5000.00 by tomorrow as you know we
will be sending you only USD5000.00 per day.Please pick up this
information and run to any western union in your country to pick up the
USD5000.00 and send us an email back to send you another payment tomorrow.
