The sender was "Mrs. CYNDY BANKS"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
My office audited the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) regarding the last 5 years contractors payments released to companies/individuals that completed their contracts. We audit agencies such as DDC as a means of ensuring compliance with procedures for recovering City Funds. The audit found that DDC did not issue payment release instructions to few contractors in 2009/2010, which was as a result of design errors and change order work.
It was further discovered that all errors were corrected, and some pending payments went through, except two other payments that were given approvals but not released during the Fiscal Years 2009 and 2010, as follows $172,580,340 and $94,660,505. Furthermore, the DDC did not always adhere to standards to preclude designs errors and omissions from occurring in the first place. Additionally, the audit identified problems with classifying change orders and with accurately recording information about change order classifications in DDC's Standardized Change
As the case may be, my boss have the co-operation of DDC's senior officials to invite or source for a reliable and trustworthy individuals or companies that can apply for the payments through DDC. However, by virtue of our position as civil servants, we cannot acquire these monies in our names or company's names, thus, we intend to re-profile the unpaid contract payment' s file to your name or company's name, to aid the DDC to release the funds to you/your company.
