    Customer Attention!

    This is to notify you that your won Draft has been refer from the signal department here in UK to the Reserve Bank Of India waiting for the arrival of the processing officer to procure the vital document needed for the prompt transfer of your funds.

    However, the processing officer will be leaving for India tonight for the purpose of the transfer of your fund to your Local Account.

    Meanwhile you are to pay your RBI Endorsement fee immediately the processing officer get in touch with you, the reason why it will be of paramount importance for you to get that done immediately, that will enable them to procure the vital document needed for the prompt transfer of your funds. The RBI Endorsement fee consist of the insurance & ministry of finance stamps as well as the approval signature from India Government. According to the telephone conversations I had with the (RBI) Rublic Relation Officer, they indicated that immediately the necessity is been put in place your fund will be transfer to your account immediately.

    Note: You are to get your Document and Endorsement fee ready before the processing officer get in touch with you, so that you can submit to him as soon as he arrived india tomorrow morning . The document consist of your ID Proof, Address Proof and your winning email address. Because the RBI will have to verify with your email address if really you are a lucky winner before they approve the transaction tomorrow.

    I do advice you to cooperate with the processing officer (Dr.Sporrong Bengt Goran) to enable him get your fund transferred to your account tomorrow only. See below the processing officer's details:

    Name: Dr. SPorrong Bengt Goran
    Age: 68-Years
    Nationality: Sweden
    Country Of Resident: England
    Email: processingmanager_goran@yahoo.co.uk

    Please be reminded that the transfer charges Rs.32, 500 Rupees you paid to us have been given to the Processing Officer, which he will use in completing the endorsement fee tomorrow.

    Note: Endorsement fee is 1lahk 10, 000 INR according to RBI (PRO) - 32500 INR we already given to him = Balance 77500 INR you have to pay tomorrow morning to the processing officer immediately he get in touch with you.

    We sincelly asure you that every thing will just be fine as soon as the Processing Officer arrive india tomorrow morning as we are working hard to make sure we conclude this transaction on time.

    Once again we are sorry for the inconveniecies and thanks for being part of us. You can write us if there is any query.
