In this regard a meeting was held between the Board of Directors of WESTERN UNION,MONEY

States Department of the Treasury has set aside as compensation payment for scam victims.
This case would be handled and supervised by the FBI.We have submitted your payment file
to them so that your funds can be transferred to you. Contact the Western Union agent
office with your information such as:
