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. Below is the western union information to pick up the USD5000.00 to pick up. Payment Information.
