Attention:Beneficiary,

Please i want to inform you that your fund was brought to my desk this
morning because the director of the western union here in Nigeria said
that they will divert your fund to the Government Treasury account just
because you failed to pay for their fee of your fund which is just $198.00
only.

But i told them to wait until i hear from you today so that i will know
the reason why you rejected such amount of money $15.5m which will change
your life just because of $198.I want your urgent response as soon as you
receive this email and explain to me the reason why you should abandon
your fund or if you don't need it then i can change your name to another
person so that the corrupt Government officials of Nigeria will not claim
this money for their selfish interest.

YOUR FULL CONTACT INFORMATION IS NEEDED.

Your Full Name:_______}
