Dear Beneficiary,

I am Steven Terner Mnuchin, Under Secretary for International
Affairs, the U.S. Department of the Treasury. You can get more details
about me here;

I have been saddled with the responsibility of liaising with
beneficiaries regarding all previously unpaid/unclaimed funds and be
sure all such funds are paid before the end of the fiscal year 2018.
Disbursement of all funds have recently just commenced.

An agreement was recently reached between the Treasury Department and
International Monetary Fund for us to settle all outstanding payments
accrued to individuals/corporations with respect to local and overseas
contract payment, debt re-scheduling and outstanding compensation
payment. Fortunately, you have been selected alongside a few other
beneficiaries to receive your own payment of $5,850,000 (Five Million
Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars only).

We have been notified that you are yet to receive your fund valued at
$5,850,000. This money will hence be transferred to your nominated
bank account.

You are advised to kindly reply this email with the below details
enclosed to help us process your payment;

(1) Full Names:
(2) Residential Address:
(3) Age:
(4) Phone/Cell Number:
(5) Occupation:

Yours faithfully,

Steven Terner Mnuchin
Under Secretary for International Affairs
(U.S.A Department of the Treasury)
