    Attention: Beneficiary,

    YOUR APPROVED COMPENSATION SETTLEMENT OF US$10,300,000.00 FROM WORLD BANK

    It's my pleasure to inform you that we have reconciled with our logistic department on the reimbursement of some funds spent by you during the cause of your inadequate dealings with some impostors who claim to be staff in banks and other regional payment centers. The world bank group discovered that Over 40 million people were qualified to receive"Billions of dollars" of unclaimed money around the world. The money includes forgotten social security deposits, uncashed overtime checks, over-due winning/contract payment, Inheritance payment and lost insurance and tax refunds.

    Our reconciliation teams with the prospectus instrument of the United Nations froze suspected impostor's account. This support was fully effective with the help of the World Bank after a summit meeting in the United States on financial instability issues fluctuating in the economy as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. After gathering these sums, the World Bank provided us with the list of beneficiaries to be paid. A random email selection was done to pick out beneficiaries who are qualified to claim these funds but a lady by the named of Mrs. Shayna Britney from Florida has already filed an application of claim at the Federal Reserve Bank with a power of attorney and some official documents to claim your fund on your behalf due to your "ill health" as she claimed.

    You have been approved to receive the sum of $10,300,000.00. Kindly get back to me with your full name, address and phone number to clarify her claim before we proceed.

    Regards,

    Mr. David Malpass.

    President world bank group, USA."
