THIS WAS HOW I SUCCEEDED GETTING MY FUNDS
I am Mrs. Carolyn Brandon; I am a US citizen, 66 years Old. I reside here
in Denton, Texas. My residential address is as follows.240 Clear Springs
Dr Plano, TX United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now Rich
and comfortable with my Family. I am one of those that took part in the
Compensation in Africa many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had
paid over US$74,000 for the past years while in the US, trying to get my
payment all to no avail. And they always stopped my funds with one reason
or the order.
So I decided to travel with my Son to WASHINGTON D.C with all my
compensation documents, And I was directed by the ( FBI) Director to
contact Mr Austin Douglas, who is a representative of the ( FBI ) and a
member of the COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, currently
in Nigeria. and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He
said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.
He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment
which was paid to me successfully. Right now I am the most happiest woman
on earth because I have finally received my compensation funds of (
US$2.5Million ) Moreover, Mr.Austin Douglas, showed me the full
information of those that are yet to receive their compensation funds and
I saw your name as one of the scam victims and one of the US$2.5Million
beneficiaries, that is why I decided to email you to know if you have
received yours, and to advise you to stop dealing with those people, they
are not with your funds, they are only making money out of you.
I will advise you to contact Mr.Austin Douglas. You have to contact him
directly on this information below to know if he can help you too.
COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
Name: Mr Austin Douglas
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you
and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with
them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until
you have nothing left.
The only Money I paid after I met Mr. Austin Douglas was just $390 for the
Ownership Paper Works, Take note of that because that was only money I
Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Mr.
Austin Douglas so that he can help you to deliver your fund instead of
dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for
different kind of money to complete your transaction.
Thank You and Be Blessed.
