I have only been recently appointed and transferred from Brunei. On commencement of my duties here, I discovered a pending transfer of US$698,000.00 (Six Hundred and Ninety-Eight Thousand United States Dollars) in the system. I promptly informed the Malaysian Government and it was agreed that the funds be refunded to either the Sender or the initial Receiver. I intend to input your name as the initial Receiver. I am contacting you to come across with names which you could use to receive $9,820 daily/ weekly until money is cleared from the system. It is very important that you respond urgently. In case you are wondering, I got your email off an internet index. I have the M.T.C.N numbers on my desk right now as I send this mail, the government has permitted me to ensure that all the money must be transferred as soon as possible to the receiver.
