and companies across the globe (Asia, Europe, USA, Africa, and
Australia) and submit the list of the unpaid beneficiaries/companies

In the course of our investigation, your email address/particulars
were shortlisted among the first fifteen individuals yet to be paid
hence this email. However, we received a petition today from one Mrs.
Christina Morgan that you are dead. According to her, you died in a
plane crash as such your fund should be paid to her as the apparent
heir. She has also submitted her Bank account with Bank of America for
the transfer of the fund to her.

To avoid undue delay or paying the fund to wrong individual/beneficiary, we
have decided to contact you for confirmation. If we fail to hear from
you after 72 hours, it will be assumed that the petition of Mrs.
Morgan is true and the fund will be paid to her without further delay.

Therefore, We would like you to choose below your choice of fund transfer:

(A) Bank Transfer/Online Banking
(B) Certified Bank Draft/Cheque
(C) ATM Card
(D) Consignment

Your full personal information is also required as below which will be
needed for the transfer of your fund.

(A) Full name and residential address
(B) Next of kin
(C) Occupation
(D) Nationality
(E) Bank Account Information
(F) Telephone numbers
(G) Scan the first page of your international passport or drivers
license, recent passport photograph, send all via email attachment.

Your urgent response is always required because you have a limited
time to execute this fund. be free to call us any time for more

Sincerely Yours
Mr. S.Hakan Binbasgil
