With this arrangement, I wish to inform you that Afribank Nigeria Plc has been instructed to issue in your name an Atm Cash Card with the valued amount of USD2.5M. In paying this amount to you, please note that it is without Prejudice to your original inheritance sum. Rather, it is a stop-gap payment arrangement put in place by the World Body to on the one hand ensure that you receive part of your fund, while on the other hand ensure that the process is smooth and without any form of stress whatsoever, whereas a comprehensive arrangement shall be made in future to pay off the remaining fund due to you. However, we are worried with the counter information received from one Mr.Casey Collins , purporting to be from your directive, with express instruction to activate the ATM Cash Card for release of fund to his name a bank account in the "Cayman Islands" Obviously, we are hesitant to honor this instruction as it were, and would request that you clarify same upon your contact with Afribank Nigeria Plc .
