      So now all you will do is that you should go to the nearest UPS COURIER COMPANY around you with this code (bxt2450007)and check your ATM CARD and if it is not there , they will direct you where to get it because i sent it to you day before yesterday and i did not contact you is because that i hard a little accident on my way going home . And again if you did not get it in any UPS COURIER COMPANY around you please contact me back or you call me on +229 986 185 61 so that i can contact the agent immediately before his returning and this is what you can reconfirm if you did not see the Package .

      Your House Address_______________
      Your Office Address____________________
      Your Telephone Number Both Office And Home______________
      Your Complete Name____________________________________

      Thanks and i am waiting for your respond because what i spent is $152.58 incase if you receive your ATM CARD so that you will know that you are going to resend the $152.58 back to me.

      Your Regards.
      Dr. David Tam

      No need to, just reply to this one I just got, and pretend that you are me.

      Attn:Beneficiary


      This is Mr.Robert S.Mueller, The Director of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) based Washington Dc.


      Dear by the power possessed by me as the State Director of Federal Bureau of Investigation,I write to inform you that After proper investigations that we made 7 days Ago, we discovered that your impending payment that have been withheld by impostors, claiming to be LAMIDO SANUSI LAMIDO (Governor of the Central bank of Nigeria), Mr. Patrick Aziza, Mr. Frank Nweke, None existing officials of the Oceanic Bank of Nigeria and Zenith Bank, UK winning Lottery, Andy Lear of HSBC bank, Coca-Cola winning lottery and among a list of others is now under our custody with the help of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Local Police Force.During our Investigations on this matter, it revealed that you have spent a lot on your personal earned money to conclude the successful delivery/transfer of your funds to your destination by obtaining delivery/transfer documents as requested by the impostors, which cost you a lot of money but all to no avail.


      Because of this matter, We the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had to send some financial crime investigators from our headquarters in Washington DC to Africa, Europe and Asian countries in other to carry out proper investigation after receiving series of other reports similar to yours as you are not the only person awaiting the legal delivery/transfer of funds from Africa and some of the Asian and Europe continents.


      Meanwhile we has giving authority to the International Monetary Funds (IMF) to assist the Federal Ministry of Finance and all the organization involved; such as the Central Bank, Zenith Bank, and Legit lottery organizations to immediately commence with the compensation of all the beneficiaries awaiting the successful delivery/transfer of their funds.


      With the help of some of the best Internet investigators attached to the FBI, we traced your information from the Internet as one of the beneficiaries awaiting the successful delivery/transfer of funds to your destination.


      In respect to this, a meeting was held to bring out the best way to carry out the compensation exercise for transparency and most especially to avoid re-occurrence of the delay in transferring your funds and the high cost of procuring transfer documents and it came to a final conclusion as all head of organizations involved was duly represented.


      It was concluded to be paid to you through valid international ATM Card cash-able at any ATM machine in the world. The ATM account has already being credited with your compensation funds worth two million, five hundred thousand United States dollars. ($2.5,000, 000.00USD) , with a daily Limit of withdrawal of Ten thousand United States Dollars($10.000,00USD).


      Secondly the ATM Card has already being packaged and approved to be delivered to your door step via Express Courier Delivery Service but before then you are to contact Mr Stephen.Oj whom we have handed over your ATM Card to his possession to make sure that it gets to you after you must have contact him in respect to that.


      CONTACT PERSON

      NAME: MR STEPHEN OJ.

      EMAIL: mrstephenorji@yahoo.cn

      CELL PHONE NUMBER: +234-8034165255


      In the process of contacting him, You are advised to reconfirm your delivery information as stated below and with your security code which is (FBI13). Submit it alongside with your delivery information's for security reasons..


      DELIVERY INFORMATION:

      FULL NAME AND AGE:.............................

      DELIVERY ADDRESS:..............................

      CELL PHONE NUMBER:.............................

      CURRENT OCCUPATION:............................


      HAVE IN MIND THAT THE DELIVERY CHARGES OF YOUR ATM CARD TO YOUR DESTINATION HAVE BEEN SETTLED BETWEEN WE AND THE COURIER COMPANY THAT IS IN CHARGE TO DELIVER YOUR ATM CARD TO YOU BUT YOU ARE ONLY MANDATED TO PAY FOR THE SECURITY KEEPING FEE WHICH WILL ONLY COST YOU $200USD.PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SECURITY KEEPING FEE IS THE ONLY OBLIGATION YOU HAVE TO pay BEFORE YOU GET YOUR ATM CARD, AND YOU HAVE TO BE REST ASSURED THAT THIS IS 100% RISK FREE NOW THAT WE THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI) IS INVOLVED, IT IS OUR DUTY TO PROTECT AND FIGHT AGAINST CRIMES,SO DON'T BE SKEPTICAL ABOUT THIS, SECONDLY WE ALSO GUARANTEE YOU THAT ONCE YOU CAN BE ABLE TO PAY FOR THE SECURITY KEEPING FEE TO MR STEPHEN.OJ THE DELIVERY OF YOUR ATM CARD WILL COMMENCE IMMEDIATELY TO YOUR DOOR STEP WITHIN THE NEXT 48 HOURS AFTER PAYMENT MUST HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED FROM YOU BY MR STEPHEN OJ.


      PRIOR TO THE ABOVE MESSAGE. A RELIABLE AND A TRUSTED COURIER COMPANY HAVE BEEN CONTRACTED TO DELIVER YOUR PACKAGE TO YOUR DESTINATION AND AS SOON AS YOU CONTACT MR STEPHEN.OJ AND PAY FOR THE SECURITY KEEPING FEE, HE WILL GET INTOUCH WITH THE COURIER SERVICE AND UPDATE YOU WITH THE TRACKING CODE OF YOUR PACKAGE (ATM CARD) FROM THE COURIER COMPANY SO THAT YOU CAN TRACK YOUR PACKAGE ONLINE TO KNOW WHEN IT WILL ARRIVE TO YOU DESTINATION.


      NOTE: Under normal circumstances you suppose to meet Mr Stephen.Oj in person in his country and sign some documents as proof for collection of your ATM CARD before he can release it to you, but the IMF and the Finance Ministry insisted that you pay for the SECURITY KEEPING Fee Which will only cost you $200usd to cut down travel expenses and when looking at it that's the easiest way to receive your funds and We hope that every thing is clear to your understanding. A receipt to this effect will be sent to you and a copy kept in your file for future documentation.


      We also advise that you stop further communications with those impostors if you are still in communication with anyone and forward any correspondence / proposal you receive from them to Mr Stephen.Oj in other for us to bring justice to those still at large.Upon receipt of payment, Mr Stephen.Oj will ensure that your package is sent to you within 48 working hours. Because we are so sure of everything we are giving you a 100% money back guarantee if you do not receive payment/package within the next 48hrs after you have made the payment for security keeping fee.



      GOD BLESS US..

      Best Regards.

      Mr. Robert S.Mueller III

      DIRECTOR FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI).
