Dear winner

Your prize fund transfer is supposed to have come into your account by now, but the Central Bank of Thailand intercepted on the payment. The IDT Finance department of the Central bank of Thailand has demanded for conversion of your funds from THB (Thai Baht) to JPY (Japanese Yen) before they can enable reflection of the transferred funds into your account in Japanese Yen.

They insist your fund transfer must be converted before the transferred fund can come into your bank account for confirmation. Your transferred fund has been finalized from our Bank. The equivalent of $500,000.00 USD will be paid into your account after the Currency Exchange by the Central Bank of Thailand.

500,000.00 USD = 56,287,542.42 JPY

JPY = 0.00888296 1 USD = 112.575 JPY

1 USD = 112.575 JPY

Total to be paid into your account: 500,000.00 USD = 56,287,542.42 JPY

Because of the Insurance Policy on your prize money which mandated that the payment must be paid in US dollars and it must be paid in full without any deduction ($500,000 USD). There is a shortage of (41,950.23 THB) your fund will not be release to your account until this shortage fee is deposited to the Central Bank of Thailand. However this fund is automatically refunded to you once your prize fund is released into your account. The total amount stated above will be paid to your account to complete your fund transfer after the Currency Exchange shortage is completed.

You are required to send the shortage fee immediately with the details below

Receiver Name: Piyathip Phonthaisong

Address: 1Rama 6 Rd, Phayathai. Bangkok 10400 Thailand

Amount: 41,950.23 Thai Baht THB

Thank you for your understanding and corporation.

Best Regard
