Security Update Notification

Dear Valued Customer :

We are unable to activate your account because we have just upgraded our online security parameters to make your Bank account and informations more secured from online frauds,so we request that you reconfirm your online Banking details with the one we have on file before you will be able to send and receive money online.

Your account may be place on restricted status. Restricted accounts continue to receive payments, but they are limited in their ability to send or withdraw funds. To lift this restriction, you need to login into your account (with your username or SSN and your password), then you have to complete our verification process. You must reconfirm your credit card details and your billing information as well. All restricted accounts have their billing information unconfirmed, meaning that you may no longer send money from your account until you have reconfirm your billing information on file.

Thank You.
