Hello dear,How are you today?
I write to inform you that we have already sent you $5000 USD dollars through Western union as we have been given the mandate to transfer your full compensation payment total sum of (USD1.2million) via western union by the Authorities of FEDERAL MINISTRY OF FINANCE FOREIGN PAYMENT.
Now, I decided to email you for the MTCN and sender name so that you will pick up this USD5000 to enable us send another USD5000.00 today as you know we will be sending you USD5000 per day. Please note that the transfer charge is ($137), so contact Pastor Anthoy Okwos and asked him where you can send the transfer charge to enable you run to western union to pick up the $5000 and call him back to send you another payment tomorrow, his contact info is
Name:Pastor Anthoy Okwos
Phone:+226-75 52 76 53
Here is the western union information to pick up the USD5000;
Receiver: Your name
MTCN : 9514438180
Sender 1st Name: Richard
Sender 2nd Name: Tedlock

Track it ,you will find that it is available to pick up by you the receiver but you cannot pick it untill the transfer charge of ($137) is paid.
So try to send him the fee to enable you pick your fund.
