    Good day,

    After the just concluded closed meeting with some African Presidents and US President, Mr. Donald Trump to find a lasting solution to end Internet Scam. The

    US president agreed with Ghana, Benin Republic and Nigerian President to return all money extorted from US, Asian, European citizens to them. The aforementioned African nation Presidents stated that it will be impossible to know the actual amount stolen from the victims but collectively agreed to return the total sum of USD4.9 Billion to U.S government to find a way to dispose it to those scam victims.

    The sum of USD2.7 Billion was deducted from the USD4.9 Billion and have been forwarded to US treasury department while the remaining USD2.2 Billion was given to other affected continents to enable them share to various Scam victim complainers.

    At this point, SunTrust Banks, Inc/, Inc/Apple Inc and FBI were mandate to figure out how these funds can be shared among scam victims. According to FBI, they said a total number of 12,000.00 complainants with evidence are on their list and we agreed to pay these 12,000.00 complainants with evidence of

    extortion first, the sum of USD$350,000.00 each while awaiting more victims that might come up later. Your names appears on that list complied by FBI so you are among those receiving this compensation funds.

    SunTrust Banks, Inc/, Inc/Apple Inc and FBI finally agreed to upload these funds into their system and release it to beneficiaries through SunTrust bank online system. This procedure was generally favored to avoid multiple claims or payments to beneficiaries.

    In other for you to receive your own USD$350,000.00 compensation funds, you are to purchase either iTunes Gift Cards or Amazon E-Gift Cards valued USD100.00 and above from any of their outlet around you and send the number for activation of your payment. Once you purchase any of these card and send the number, within 48hours of sending it, your payment will be activated and you can visit any SunTrust Banks, Inc with the number on that cards and receive your payment without any delay. Note; You do not need to own an account or open any account with SunTrust Banks, Inc rather with the same number you send for activation of payment, your funds will be released to you.

    Do not miss this great opportunity to receive your funds because it might not occur again.

    We await your urgent response with the card number.

    Yours sincerely,

    William H. Rogers, Jr.
