    Dear Sir/Madam,

    There is an issue with the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER in the amount of $500.000.00 USD directed in cash credited to file KTU/9023118308/03, at the owner of this email address. The INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND contacted us for your compensation a couple of hours ago due to your allocated security code.


    They said that they choose to send it to an email address instead of a name. We are unable to complete a transfer directed at an email address, so we require some more information in order to complete this transfer.


    FULL NAME:
    FULL CONTACT ADDRESS:
    MOBILE PHONE NUMBER:
    OCCUPATION:
    MARITAL STATUS AND AGE:


    In order to resolve this problem,please email via Western Union Solicitors Fund Verification Department


    As soon as this information is received,and you have complied with the requirements of payment of the western union charges $850, payment will be made to your nominated bank account or at the counter directly from The Western Union Transfering Bank.


    Note: That this is not one of those scams that all they are after is to ripe you off your money and at the end you wil not receive your funds, but note that this is no scam and is directly from the Management of Western Union Money Transfer Nigeria Head Office and our Motto is To Serve You Better.


    Contact us on our website on www.westernunion.co.uk also note that you would be responsible for any payment that is needed for the transfer of your funds into your nominated bank account or at the counter directly from the Western Union Transferring Bank. o

    ATTENTION FUND BENEFICIARY,

    This is an official advice from the FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI). It has come to our notice that some certain individuals have used your name as the beneficiary of funds worth Millions of United States Dollars from abroad. These individuals with their collaborating banks knowing fully well that they do not have enough facilities to effect this payment from any part of the world to your account, used what we know as a Secret Diplomatic Transit Payment (S.T.D.P) as well as the ATM card system to pay this fund which has not been completed till this day. Direct transfers are difficult and Secret Diplomatic Transit Payment (S.T.D.P) are not made unless the funds are related to terrorist activities and we ask why must your payment be made in secret transfer if your transaction is legitimate.We do not want you to get into trouble as soon as these funds reflect in your account, so it is our duty as an International Commission to correct these li! ttle problems befo We advice you to contact us immediately, as the funds have been stopped and are being held in our custody, until you are able to provide us with a Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Transfer (DIST) document within 3 days from the Country that authorized the transfer from where the funds was transferred from to certify that the funds that you are about to receive are terrorist/drug free or we shall have cause to impound the payment and subsequent prosecution. We shall release the funds immediately we receive this legal document and make sure that you get your payment without any further delay.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    We decided to contact you directly to acquire the proper verifications and proof from you to show that you are the rightful person to receive this fund, because of the amount involved. Be informed that the funds are now with a top bank in the United State in your name and under the monitoring/custody of the FBI. At the moment, we have asked the bank not to release the fund to anybody that comes to them, unless we instruct them to do so, this is to enable us carry out a comprehensive investigations first before releasing the fund to you. Hence, you are to forward the document to us immediately if you have it in your possession, if you do not have it, let us know so that we will direct you where to obtain the document and send to us. Thereafter, we will ask the bank holding the funds, to go ahead and credit your account immediately. FBI Identification Record and Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Transfer (DIST) often referred to as a Criminal History Rec! ord or Rap Sheet i ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Final Instruction;
    1. Credit payment instruction: Irrevocable credit guarantee.
    2. Beneficiary has full power when validation is cleared.
    3. Beneficiaries bank in U.S.A. can only release funds.
    4. Upon confirmation from the World Bank / United nations.
    5. Bearers must clear bank protocol and validation request.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ NOTE: We have NOTE: We have asked for the Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Transfer (DIST) document to ensure the most complete and up-to date records possible for the enhancement of public safety, welfare and security of society while recognizing the importance of individual privacy rights. If you fail to provide the Documents to us, we will charge you and take appropriate action against you for not proving the legality of the funds. The United States Department of Justice Order 556-73 establishes rules and regulations for the subject of an FBI Identification Record to obtain a copy of his or her own Record for review. The FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division processes these requests to check illegal activities in USA and beyond. An individual may request a copy of his or her own FBI Identification Record for personal review or to FBI Director
