The scam

United Bank for Africa PLC.

Our Ref: UBA/NG/0055/17

Dear Sir,

I write to remind you once more that we have been given a payment mandate
from the World Bank to release your $10.5 Million US Dollars fund to you
and your payment is approved by ATM, Visa Prepaid Card method. The reason
for this method is due to the 2017 fiscal and monetary policy in the
country. As a result, the world bank Nigeria country director authorized
this method for the moment.

We kindly request you to call or reply for the immediate payment of your
long-awaited fund by processing and dispatching your ATM, Visa Prepaid Card
to your designated address. For clarity purposes, you are requested to
kindly reconfirm the following information to us; Names, present Address,
Direct Phone/Cell, and any possible means of identification. All requested
information should either be forwarded to me via replying or to my boss,
Mr. Phillips Oduoza, the GMD/CEO, United Bank for Africa PLC at "''. The required listed information is to verify
your identity as the fund owner and the intended recipient of the said
Stored Value card so as not to release your fund or any useful information
to the wrong person.

NOTE: It has come to our notice that ever since these payments are
approved, some of you are receiving emails from different persons within
and outside this country purporting to be one bank official or the other
with the mandate to release your fund to you. Please, ignore such emails,
they are apparently from unauthorized individuals and their prime aim is to
drive your attention away from the real thing thereby sufficing their
chief instigators great chances to manipulate and divert your funds to
their desired location as usual.

We advise you to be careful, we (UBA PLC) won't be liable for any
deception, cheat or diversion of your fund you will incur if you ignore
this caution.

Mrs. Christina
United Bank for Africa PLC
