I am contacting you because we have sent several emails to you informing of your $1.5million USD which your email address won from the World Bank 2011 random balloting of over 10million email addresses. We have sent you three emails and no reply from you.
Last week, somebody one Mr. Alsin Bale came to our office and claimed that you signed a letter of authority to empower him to claim the fund on your behalf. Please confirm if you signed any letter to authorize Mr. Alsin Bale to claim this fund on your behalf.
If we do not hear from you within four working days, we would go ahead and release this $1.5million to him.
We are waiting to hear from you.
Head of Operations
Bank of England
