Dear Beneficiary,
***Your ATM CARD Delivery Tracking Number: ***803240064803***
We were authorized by the newly appointed United Nation Secretary General, and the Governing body of the United Nations Debt Reconciliation Unit, to investigate the unnecessary delay on your payment, recommended and approved in your favor. During the course of our investigation, we discovered with dismay that your payment has been unnecessarily delayed by some corrupt officials of the Bank and Government regulatory organs in Nigeria who are trying to divert your funds into their private account due to your inability to fullfil your financial obligation.
However, our reason for contacting you on this day is to inform you that your ATM CARD valued at $10.5million dollars was dispatched through Federal Express Courier Service(FEDEX) but at the point of dispatch on the Wed 2/26/2014 2:13 pm, to one P.Takara who contacted our Head Office in Nigeria that he is your representative and that you gave him due authorization to receive the package on your behalf and he presented a letter of authorisation to our Office claiming to be Approved by the High Court of Nigeria and duly signed by you.
For your information, the parcel has been Delivered to Ohio, US on Monday 3/03/2014 10:00 am. To verify this information, go to and type in the tracking number below to view delivery status. Your Tracking Number: 803240064803
We sent you series of emails in this regards but you did not respond back to us; However, in the course of our routine scrutinized into our Dispatch Alert, we discovered that the document presented to us by P.Takara was not approved by the High Court of Nigeria and we discovered that P.Takara was an impostor trying to claim your parcel without your legal authorization which has been delivered to our Legal Department office in New York, USA.
Therefore, you are advised to contact the Dispatch Office of  United Bank of Africa (UBA) in Nigeria with the information below; and send your personal information. Full name, Address and Phone# to enable him re-schedule the delivery of your ATM Card to your home address and also ensure that you keep the new Tracking Number that will be given to you once the package has been placed on transit via FedEx to avoid any further obstruction;
