    Dear Valued Beneficiary:

    We are pleased to inform you that we have finally concluded arrangement towards your refund/lottery pay out which has been delayed for a Long Period of time because of your Cooperation and Dealings with Wrong Officials and importers of banks as your fund returned back to us on the 1st of Feb 2019 when we confirmed the rate of delays and questionable activities that has been related by the previous administrative banks alongside with others that collaborated in delaying the release of your fund after all charges and payments demanded were paid.

    Recently, the Ministry of Finance of United Kingdom, Bank of England, HSBC Bank Plc UK and United Kingdom Inland Revenue Services held a meeting on how this fund will be released to the beneficiaries to their designated bank accounts in their country without further delay since we are in the second half of the economic year 2019 and it is now overdue to be released as the said funds belongs to them.

    We apologize for the delay of the payment and all the inconveniences that this might have caused you during this period of time. However we have instructed all the banks in the globe which we previously asked to help us pay out this fund to the general public to STOP the process of the release of the fund due to their incompetence and negligence of duty towards the release of this fund. After our findings, some were arrested and charged for theft according to Section 1 of the Theft Act 1978, as amended by the Theft (Amendment) Act 1996 law of United Kingdom.

    The Bank of England Governor (Mark Carney) has given serious warning and Instructions and ordered the Inland Revenue Services Department of England to quickly release all on hold funds which is in their escrow account to the sole beneficiaries which you are among those who will receive their Inheritance funds.

    Please contact ONLY the Executive member of the Monetary Policy Committee of South African Reserve Bank (Dr Rashad Cassim) on his email: to advice you on how to procure the certificate of claim as the law of South Africa demands that without it there will not be any payment whether pending loan amount, lottery fund, inheritance funds or whatsoever fund locally or internationally perhaps you have not yet received it.

    Provide below details to Dr Rashad Cassim for his clarification:

    Full Name... Tel...

    Address... Amount...

    City... Country...

    Copies of documents pertaining the fund.

    Best Regards,

    Mr.James Emmett.

    Chief Executive Officer, HSBC Bank plc.
