    Meanwhile, after due scrutiny and verification, I confirmed that you have fulfilled all the necessary obligations that will enable the release of your payment to you, but yet your payment was not released to you due to one flimsy excuses or the other from the Bank officials in charge of your payment, because they had the intention of diverting your funds to their private accounts in order to satisfy their selfish interest.

    I have your file here in my office and it says that you are yet to receive your fund valued at US$36,500,000.00 (Thirty Six Million Five hundred thousand Dollars only).

    As soon as the above mentioned details are received, your payment will be made to you immediately. Please do provide the above information accurately, because this office cannot afford to be held liable for any wrong transfer of funds or liability of funds credited into unknown account.

    We are awaiting your immediate response with your information to enable this bank proceeds with the transfer of your approved fund and serve you better as we were directed by the United Nations.

    Thanks for banking with Bank of America while we looking forward to serving you with the best of our service.
