    Bank wishes you well, there is nothing your buyer can do to this issue, expect you find the solution this matter with immediate effect,

    This Alert Message notifies you that an error has been detected in the payment made by your buyer s ( RICHE HELEN ) Bank Account. That is why we haven t credit your account since, Your buyer has contacted us regarding the accreditation of your money and he also send us the tracking number but to this end, we regret to inform you that your transferred payment may not be accredited now into your Bank account until the error has been resolved.

    Your buyer s Bank Account has been Over Charged with $1,200.00 USD to your account instead of the normal negotiated fee s with shipment of ($800.00 USD ) and we just notify your buyer about the Over-Charge. This usually occurs when the transfer is made via either very fast or extremely slow internet connections. so you are advised to contact your buyer and settle this issue by refunding the $400.00 USD before the total sum of $1,200.00 USD can be accredited into your account our Bank record is not correct until you resolve this matter

    We are very sorry for any inconveniences that this development might have caused you because we won t be able to approve the payment until we confirm that you have resolved the refunding issue by sending us a confirmation of the payment you are supposed to refund back to your buyer account, we want you to know that there is nothing your buyer and we can do to solve this overcharges due to the type of payment mode which your buyer used to send the money this payment has been gone beyond your buyer

    Note: That the transfer has been deducted from RICHE HELEN Account and can not be refunded back because this is Bank Auction Payment Service, therefore you are required to contact your buyer as soon as possible so as to settle this matter on time, we want you to know that we are trying to make everything secure between the Buyer and Seller.

    Thank you for Using Bank!

      I'm not from your bank but the email appears to be a scam because it is not written professionally. Scotia would never have written an email like that.
