Dear Victim

We hope you received our previous email with your Visa account details. If you have not accessed your Visa account balance by logging into your account, please refer to our previous email and follow the instructions. You will be able to view your balance via online banking.

Please be aware that before you can transfer your 500,000.00 GBP to your local bank account, you must activate your account for funds transfer immediately. The Funds Transfer Activation exercise is a security measure for preventing identity theft, internet fraud, and other forms of financial crimes related to your account. The Funds Transfer Activation exercise will verify that we are dealing with the right owner of this Visa account. If you do not activate your Visa account for funds transfer, your account will be suspended until further notice. You are strongly required to activate your Visa account for funds transfer before you can continue online banking with us. Your account must be activated for funds transfer before you can continue unrestricted online banking using our online banking interface. This is to protect our interest and that of our customer.

Steps to Funds Transfer Activation

The following are the requirements:

2. A copy of your valid Identification card.
3. Verification deposit.

1. Funds Transfer Activation Form

You are to print out and complete the FUNDS TRANSFER ACTIVATION FORM which is attached to this email. Fill in all the necessary details and return the scanned copy of the form to us by email attachment.

You are to send us a copy of your ID card (e.g. international passport or driver's license). The ID card is needed to identify you and confirm that you are the right beneficiary to 500,000.00 GBP.

You are mandated to make a verification deposit of 300.00 GBP (Three hundred Great British Pounds) to your Visa account XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Go ahead and make the deposit, send us a copy of your deposit slip for confirmation when you are done. On receipt of your fax message, 300.00 GBP will be credited to your Visa account XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. The deposit will reflect on your Visa account balance and statements.

Your account balance with us is 500,000.00 GBP, your new balance after the deposit will be 500,000.00 GBP + 300.00 GBP = 500,300.00 GBP

After your deposit has been credited to your account, your account features will be unlocked and all restrictions will be lifted. As soon as your account features are unlocked, you will be able to your transfer 500,300.00 GBP to any account worldwide using our fund transfer service.
