    Probably scam

    "Dear Sir

    I want to confirm from you whether you have contacted the Bank of America for the transfer of your $10,000,000 to your account for this last badge of quarterly payment.

    The bank has been instructed to pay through Master card and delivery to the beneficiary contact address.

    For your own good the only fee you will pay to the bank is only $500 processing and delivery of your card.

    Contact the bank now with the bellow details
