Kind Attention: My name is Mr. Steve Morgan; I am a US citizen, 51 Years Old. My residential address is as follows. 5424 Pent ridge Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19143-4126, United States of America, I am one of those people that took part in receiving Inheritance funds and Lottery funds from African banks and European banks even from many lottery organizers few years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid different fees or charges of over $85,000 while in the USA trying to get my funds from those banks and lottery organizers but all to no avail. So i decided to travel to WASHINGTON D.C USA with all my payment approval documents, and I was directed by the F.B.I. Director to contact a man called Mr Marcus Joshua, A BRITISH CITIZEN and a member of the UNITED NATIONS ORGANISATION (UNO) & INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUNDS (IMF) COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE currently staying in Lagos-Nigeria. I contacted him in Lagos-Nigeria and he explained everything to me. Mr Marcus Joshua personally directed me on how to successfully claim my Inheritance and Lottery payment from the paying bank and right now I am the happiest man on earth because I have now finally received my funds totaling US$ 6 Million (Six Million U.S Dollars). Moreover Mr Marcus Joshua, showed me the full information of those people that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your names/your email address as one of the beneficiaries and that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people because they are not with your funds but they are only making money out of you. I will personally advise you to contact Mr Marcus Joshua in Lagos-Nigeria immediately after reading this message. You have to contact him directly on this information below Contact Person: Mr Marcus Joshua. Contact Address: No. 25 Groveport Hill, Lagos-Nigeria. eMail ID:email@example.com Telephone No: +234-81-4600-5636 Contact him now and send him (1). Your full names, (2). Your full contact Address, (3). Your mobile phone numbers (4). Your Age and Occupation Etc... You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you now telling you that your funds is with them because your funds is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing left with you. Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact only Mr.Marcus Joshua in Lagos-Nigeria so that he can help you process your payment through the paying bank instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money for fees to complete your transaction. Thank You and Be Blessed. Mr. Steve Morgan. 5424 Pent ridge Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19143-4126, U.S.A. firstname.lastname@example.org
