How are you today? I write to inform you that we have already sent you $5,000.00USD 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 the 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 $5,000.00USD to enable us send another $5,000.00USD by tomorrow as you know that we will be sending you only $5,000.00USD per day. The fund was sent 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 $5,000.00USD and send us an email back to enable us send you another payment by tomorrow. Manager :Mrs. Anita Daniel.
