I am Janet L. Yellen, the newly-sworn Chair, U.S. Federal Reserve Bank. You will get more information about me here.
I have made it my first point of call since taking office to settle all outstanding payments accrued to individuals/corporations with respect to local and overseas contract payment, debt re-scheduling and outstanding compensation payment. This is to make sure all outstanding payments are settled before the end of the fiscal year 2014.
We have your file and it says that you are yet to receive your fund valued at $850,000 (Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars only). This money will now be transferred to your nominated bank account or your preferred payment option.
You are advised to kindly reply this email with the below details enclosed to help us process your payment;
(1) Full Names:
(2) Residential Address:
(3) Country of Residence:
(5) Phone/Cell Number:
Thanks for your co-operation as I wait to hear from you.
Janet L. Yellen
Chair, U.S. Federal Reserve Bank
