Dear Esteemed customer;,

The Management of the Bank of America Corporate Office Headquarters here in 100 N. Tryon St Charlotte, NC 28255 wishes to inform you that after a brief meeting held by the Bank executives on, the 20th Day of February 2015 at precisely 8 am Eastern Daylight Time(EDT), we deem it appropriate to intimate you that your funds will be transferred into the United States Treasury Account with the JP Morgan Chase Headquarters at 270 Park Avenue in New York according to the record we got from Africa due to your inability to complete the transaction and your failure to meet up with a minor payment obligation. The actual transfer of your funds ($15,500,000.00) into the government account comes up next week.

This is in line with the instructions of the USA Treasurer Mrs. Rosa Gumataotao Rios that all unclaimed funds be paid into the United States Government Treasury Account as serviceable funds in compliance to section 3 subsections 1(a) of the United States Financial Law enacted in 2004 after an attack on our dear country on September 11, 2004.

Find below the profile of the banking institution where your funds will be transferred into following the government directive;

Routing NO: 021109593

Account Name: United States Treasury Department, USA

Note that if you still wish to receive your funds, there are still a little chance just do get back to us right now so that we will remove your funds transfer file from the list of those transactions to be seized by the United States Government. Also be informed that we need only a DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY SEAL OF TRANSFER (DIST) to complete the wire transfer. The fee to obtain the SEAL was reduced to $63 for those who wish to complete their transaction and no other fee is involved. You are required to send the fee of $63.00 by WESTERN UNION or MONEY GRAM to the issuing officer at the bank where your transaction originated as stated below:

REMITTANCE INFORMATION WITH THE OFFICE IN CHARGE OF THE DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY SEAL OF TRANSFER(DIST) WHICH WILL BE OBTAIN WITH THE REQUIRED $63 ONLY AND YOU HAVE TO ACT FAST IN GETTING THE FEE SEND TO THE OFFICE AS YOU SEE BELOW AND UPDATE US ALONG WITH THE PAYMENT INFO OR THE TRANSFER SLIP FOR PROVE.

    I was approached via email by Mr. Jeffrey Williams of the United Bank for Africa in the Republic of Benin in Africa that I was due to receive 1.5 million dollars US sent to the Bank of America, Texas.

    I sent over $475 USD to the Bank of Africa to transfer the money. I was spoofed into a web site at the Bank of America Texas with an online account that said I now had 1.5 million usd in the account.

    The only problem is that when I tried to transfer the money to my Canadian account at the end of the transaction, it requested a Transfer Authorization Code which I did not have.

    I was informed by the director of the bank that I had to send $3500 to Benin to release the funds.

    They were the originators of the funds. I realized that I had been scammed.

    There was no way I was going to send them that kind of money. I had been ripped off.

    The Bank of America online web site was a spoof. I was never going to see any of the money that was supposedly in my name.

    If I gave them the money, there was no guarantee that I would be able to transfer my money to my account in Canada.

    I would be at risk of them taking the money back and emptying my account.

    The only solution would be to open a new account and transfer the money to that account which they would have no record of. But how do I come up with $3500?

    As it turns out I am in a debt management program paying off all my previous credit card debt.

    I am not allowed to take out a pay day loan due to the stipulations of the Debt Management Program. My debt s have to be paid off first.

    Basically my hands are tied and I will never see my $1.5 million ever.

      Once you asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.
