Dear sir,
My name is Mar Luciana Valdez of the Europe office of the Funds
Transfer Tracking Bureau of the International Monetary Fund
(IMF). I am mandated to inform you that we received reports that
you have a transaction overseas. The report shows that to
circumvent normal banking procedures you were issued a VISA ATM
Card. For some unconventional reasons this transaction was not
concluded and your goals were not accomplished after series of
process you went through. Consequently we finally traced the
origin and location of the ATM Card. We therefore decided that
your funds will be released to you through an Auto Loaded System
(ALS). This means that your funds will be auto loaded into your
existing VISA ATM Card. This Auto loading will be monitored by
the High Commission for Better Governance (HCFBG). You are
therefore advised to contact HCFBG who will facilitate the Auto
loading of your funds into your existing VISA ATM Card. HCFBG
E-mail contact is:
Best Regards,
Mar Luciana Valdez
ATM Tracking department.
