Attn: Sir/Ma I wish to inform you, that the Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (TREAS-OFAC) has embarked on re-visiting abandoned files of blocked funds yet to be unblocked in this last quarter of the year 2012, and fortunately your file is enlisted amongst the few that have been marked for unblock after several investigations and clearances done by the OFAC. It is imperative that you provide all details of transaction correctly as detailed in your payment file before the funds will be finally released to you as the original beneficiary. As part of its enforcement efforts, the U.S. Department the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) publishes a list of individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific. Collectively, such individuals and companies are called "Specially Designated Nationals" or "SDN." Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them. Please contact this office through : firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information. Sincerely, Margarett Hunton Chief Operations Sec. OFAC Liaison Office Washington DC.
