How are you today? I write to inform you that we have already sent you $5000.00USD through Western union as we have been given the mandate to transfer your full compensation payment of $1.800,000.00USD via western union by this government. I called to give you the information through phone as internet hackers were many but i cannot reach you yesterday even this morning. So,I decided to email you the MTCN and sender name so that can pick up this $5,000.00USD to enable us send another $5,000.00USD by tomorrow as you knows we will be sending you only $5,000.00USD per day. Please pick up this information and run to any western union in your country to pick up the $5,000.00USD and send us email back to send you another payment tomorrow.
