YOUR PAYMENT! – philipsoduoza001@accountant.com


Hello,I am very sorry I have to reach you through this medium. I am a member of the European Debt Recovery Unit and I am aware of your ordeal about your unpaid fund. It may also interest you to know that, not long after the Debt Management Office (DMO) completed the merger and acquisition process of all pending payments in response to the petition raised by the international community about their unpaid funds. I discovered that their boss connived with some top officials to divert funds approved to settle unpaid inheritances, email lottery winners, Internet scam victims, unclaimed consignments(concealed funds) and International Contractors. The DMO has already given approval for the payment of your fund but they deliberately withheld your payment file and continue to demand fees from you through their associates from different unassigned affiliates mostly from Africa, US and the Netherlands all in an attempt to frustrate you and enrich themselves. I wonder why you haven’t notice all these while. You may choose to disbelieve this email as inconceivable facts but my doctrine does not permit such act, reason I have to open up to you to seek the right channel. Your fund was authorized to be paid to you through United Bank for Africa with a Claim Code Numbers, which was supposed to have been issued to you before now. Upon your response, I shall guide you through and provide you with details to contact the assigned person who will expeditiously facilitate the release of your fund, though, your reply would be automatically forwarded to the assigned paying person. Please reply to: (philipsoduoza001@accountant.com) Thanks and have a wonderful day. Yours Faithfully, Administrative Staff.
