MY DEAR,

How is your health today?

We have been contacted by MR ANDY MERCHANT in which he has informed us about your illness and the instruction you gave to him to act on your behalf as regards to the claims of your fund, it is in this respect that we decided to contact you first to find out if you are actually in the hospital and to verify if his claims that you have authorized him to receive the fund on your behalf is true as we don’t want to conclude on hearing from him alone, in this respect, if you are out of hospital, it is very important that you should contact us to confirm that you have authorized him to claim the fund on your behalf.

Below are the Bank information(s) that he has sent to us for the purpose of wiring the fund to him, thus:-

BANK NAME: CITIZENS STATE BANK
BANK ADDRESS: CEDAR AVENUE, SOUTH PITTSBURG TENNESSEEE 37380 USA
A/C NO: 57011457
A/C NAME: ANDY C MERCHANT
ROUTIING NO: 064101660

NOTE: If we don’t hear from you within the next 48 hours, we will not have any other option than to proceed with his payment request as he is not aware that we have already contacted you now for this confirmation, therefore, we shall be looking forward to your prompt reply to this mail. Thanks for your understanding

Yours in banking service

Alhaji Suleiman Barau
Deputy Governor International remittance department
