Subject: Your payment by Western Union
From: "James Combs"


Good day to you,

I am Rev. Father James Combs, a volunteer working with the U.N.I.C.E.F (United Nations International Children Educational Funds), which base on my good conduct supervising funds meant for the U.N.I.C.E.F, I was appointed voluntarily to work with the United Nations Compensation Commission (U.N.C.C). I am writing you this letter because cool penny is better than millions of Dollars. It is better for one to live and die poor honest man than a rich dishonest one. This is to notify you that I have received report of compensation payment instruction from the United Nations Compensation Commission (U.N.C.C) in conjunction with the International monetary fund Campaign to assist Individuals in the settlement of disputes and pay compensation for losses and damages suffered as a direct result of different lost. This is in line with our previous compensation payment arrangement which the meeting which was first held on the 8th of April 2003. You can view this page for your perusal.


(http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2003/ik344.doc.htm).


I also investigated that The Governing Council therefore devised a mechanism for the allocation of available funds to successful claimants and such claimants includes every foreign contractor that may have not received their contract sum due to political crisis or war in the country, people who have lost their money/life savings to fraudsters or govermental imposters (Scammed victims), people who are being affected by disacter such as earthquakes, Tsunami, Typhon, flood and also compensate the victims of the swine flu (H1N1 influenza) based on humanitarian grounds, etc. The sum of 100,000.00 Pound (One Hundred Thousand Pounds) has been approved for individuals that fall in this categories as their compensation, which I found your name in the list of people that were compensated and that is why you are receiving this email notification because your compensation has not yet been paid to you.


Accordingly, We have sent you 10,000.00 Pounds (Ten thousand Pounds) through Western union as we have been given the mandate to transfer your compensation sum Via Western Union to you bit by bit because Western Union could only allow transfer of 10,000 Pounds maximum limit to you. Find below the Money transfer control number (MTCN) and Sender Name and amount only, so you can track your first transfer of 10,000,00 Pounds with the tracking number (1376797057) via Western Union Online tracking link.

Sender first Names: SHAWN WILTORD
Sender last name: LAWSON
MTCN: 1376797057

Subsequently, I have been directed by the U.N.C.C delegates, International monetary fund and the World Health Organization, to ensure that your compensation funds do not get to a wrong person. In Regard to this, you are advised to visit our office in London to sign your compensation release and approval documents in other for your "Money Transfer Text Question and Answer" would be release to you to enable you pick your fund from any of the Western Union agent in your location.
