Following series of complaints from Citizens of the United States as well as Citizens of Other Countries In Europe over the discrepancies and fraudulent ways in which fund transfers are handled by Africans which has made it impossible for a lot of people to claim their winning or inheritance funds from most African countries due to frauds and illegal activities. A decision was reached recently by the United States Treasury Department under the authority of the White House to compel African Financial bodies (Banks) to urgently release all funds of American and European citizens that are trapped in most Banks and courier companies in Africa. It was discovered that some bureaucratic bottlenecks was put by these Banks and couriers to make it impossible for beneficiaries to claim their funds so that they will fraudulently divert those funds to their private accounts.
Consequent upon the aforementioned, I was personally mandated to handle this matter to ensure that all funds of our citizens and others which are fraudulently being trapped in African Banks are urgently retrieved and paid to the actual Beneficiaries under a legal manner. Our team of experts were delegated to Benin Republic, Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Ghana for this task and we discovered your file/ payment reference number as unclaimed fund. It was discovered that officials of the Bank has only put up illegal requirements in order to make it difficult for you to claim your fund.
