Dear Client!

Thank you for choosing Merrill Lynch Business Center. Good afternoon dear clients, We are sorry to inform you that the number of cases of fraudulent use of our bank accounts has recently increased. That is why our bank changes the security system, which will provide our clients with maximum security of their accounts from the frauds. During this week we will e-mail you a special program, as well as the detailed instruction how to use it. With its help you will have an opportunity to make payments. No one will be able to transfer money from your account without this program. If you lose the program, you will have to pay $4,99 and we will send you the copy of it.
