This email is reach you today being the 20th of August 2018 from the Western
Union Agent FLORIDA,TALLAHASSEE in conjunction with
United Nation Compensation Award Committee and I as the Director of Western
Union Agent here in FLORIDA,TALLAHASSEE wishes to inform you know
that due to some fake ID and website from the internet hoax and hackers in
Africa especial in Benin and Burkina Faso we have agreed with the
Federal Ministry
of Finance and the United Nation Compensation Award Committee in this State
to transfer your Funds from one so called Western Union Agent under management
of Central Bank of Africa (CBA) over there in Benin
to My Western Union Head Office here in Reno,Nevada so that it will be easy
for you to receive your approved Compensation Funds
without any delay as some of the Bank over there in Africa formed
the habit of delaying for unnecessary things for the customers and at last
they mighty not complete the Transfer for one reason or the other due
to poor Management.

As matter of fact, according to the the United Nation Compensation Award
Committee, the main reason they channel this payment in this way is that they
noticed that you have sent a lot of funds to Africa there by Western Union and
Money Gram with hope that you will receive your funds and at last you
will receive nothing rather than keep receiving unfulfilled promise
from them, NOW as Director of Western Union here I hereby assure you that this
is time for you to get your Re-compensation approved and signed Funds from the
office here so for immediate payment of your fund from this hour kindly provide
me with your personal information such as in bellow form
