Dear Ms. Rosalie Rabago Quintana,
We have tried making the transfer through electronic means and we were getting error messages since morning. We have contacted the Federal Reserve Wire Network (Fedwire) which is the agency responsible for settlement of funds transfer within and outside the United States of America. They made use to understand that such amount of money that originated from a foreigner cannot be sent out without first getting International Swift Clearance Certificate from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) which is the financial investigative arm of the United States.
We have referred the matter to our head office and our head office has told us to inform you about the development. The FinCEN has frozen the bank account of late Mr. David Luis Reyes as a result of this and they demand that we secure the International Swift Clearance Certificate from them with the sum of seven hundred and eighty US dollars (US$780). They said the amount for the payment of the clearance fee is non-negotiable and must be paid without wasting time or you will stand to lose the claim. The amount involved (US$780) in your local currency is the sum of thirty eight thousand, nine hundred and eight Philippine Pesos (PHP38, 980). You are to make the payment through western union money transfer using my details as provided below. We advise you to make provision for a little more than the amount mentioned in your local currency because you will have to pay a transfer fee. The important thing is to make sure that the receiver receives, US$780.
Recevier's First Name: Willard
Receiver's Middle Name: Amos
Receiver's Last Name/Surname: Jackson
Country: United States
Amount to receive: US$780
We encourage you to immediately raise the money in order to avoid the confiscation of the claim amount by the financial authorities. We as a bank, we would not want to go into any legal battle with the authorities if they eventually confiscate the claim amount as a result of your inability to pay the clearance fee, hence the need for you to make the payment. Once the payment is made, the document will be issued and the transfer will be allowed to go through. We are sorry for the delay and the inconveniences you may face because of this development which is sudden and demanding, we ask you to bear with us and comply with the authorities, it is in your best interest. We are now waiting for the payment receipt.
Mr. Willard A. Jackson.
