Hello,

   I write to inform you that we have already sent you $7,500.00USD through Western Union as we 
have been given the mandate to transfer your full compensation payment of $1,800,000.00USD via 
Western Union Money Transfer by the United Nations (ECOWAS). This is because United Nations and 
(ECOWAS) are supporting individuals due to the worldwide economy meltdown.

  I would have requested for your phone number to give you the information through phone but 
internet hackers were many. So i decided to email you the MTCN and sender name so that you can pick 
up this $7,500.00USD to enable us send another $7,500.00USD by tomorrow as you know that we will be 
sending you only $7,500.00USD per day.  The fund was send in the name which you use in opening your 
e-mail address.

Please pick up this information and rush to any western union to pick up the $7,500.00USD and send 
us an email back to enable us send you another payment by tomorrow.

Email or call me once you picked up this $7,500.00USD today.
