Attention! You supplied your confidential Bank Account details for the purpose of transferring a huge sum of money. The transfer could not be completed because of various reasons, ranging from demand for upfront payments for levies, taxes, commissions, legal and administrative reasons… I have the pleasure to inform you that your PARTNER has successfully EFFECTED the transfer by using a third party Bank Account provided by the Government of Ukraine. Your former Partner now lives in Kiev, the Ukrainian Capital City under a new Identity provided by the Ukrainian Government. For obvious reasons, your former Partner does not wish to be contacted. BUT, because of the COMPENSATION CLAUSE, inherent in the transfer agreement, the sum of US$970,000.00 ( Nine Hundred and seventy Thousand US Dollars) has been approved and set aside for you because your Bank Account was used to process the transfer. Therefore, a cashiers Cheque for the amount of US$970,000.00 will shortly be raised in your name and is redeemable in any Bank. THIS MONEY IS YOURS AND THERE ARE NO STRINGS OR CONDITIONS ATTACHED! PLEASE FORWARD DETAILS SO THAT THE CHEQUE TOTAL AMOUNT US$970,000.00 CAN IMMEDIATELY BE MAILED TO YOU Regards, Dr. Timi Waziri, Account Officer
