Subject: you are still the beneficiary
How are you doing today? I hope all is well with you if so glory be to God almighty.
I want to know why you did not reply to me on the proceedings of the transaction, the bank has been waiting for you to follow up so that the fund can leave the bank as soon as possible but I dont know why you did not want to go on.
I want you to know that you are still the beneficiary, I will like you to tell me if you are still interest so I will know what to tell the bank.
The bank laid their hope on you; Pls. your urgent response is needed.
JESUS IS LORD.
