My name is Dr Thomas Kohler. I am an independent external auditor for the World Bank handling the 
Foreign Banks Debt Management Office.

I have in front of me an abandoned transfer file containing details to an escrow account setup in 
your name. The file shows that you have correctly made application to have your funds released to 
you. It is also clearly noted on the file that the beneficiary could not handle the financial 
commitment required of him. Due to this the funds were pegged and abandoned.As an international 
independent external auditor i think it is very absurd to abandon ones funds for this simple 

To tell you the truth i do not believe this to be true and my reason is simply because of the 
irregularities i noticed while compiling the audit report for the end of the financial year.

I have perfected plans to have this funds transferred to you within the next 24hrs. Upon your 
confirmation i will give you further directives.
