Attn:Karla Hill-Freeman,
With Gratitude to God Almighty, I write to officially acknowledge receipt of your e-mail communication regarding the release of your approved payment valued at the sum of $6.500,000.00 USD via issuance of a CERTIFIED CHECK drawn on FEDERAL RESERVE BANK, which is the Central Bank of the United States.
Per your request, I wish to declare and confirm to you truthfully that the $6.500,000.00 USD in question is a compensation lump sum from the United Nations. However, by virtue of my position as the Secretary of the Treasury, I wish to state categorically that a CERTIFIED CHECK of $6.500,000.00 USD drawn on FEDERAL RESERVE BANK will be issued and sent to you via the UPS Courier Company to your home address at no cost to you. Every and all cost associated with the delivery of the CHECK has been pre-paid by the U.S Government. The only cost associated with your fund release is the cost of processing a "Fund Clearance Certificate", which is estimated to the value of $150.00 USD. The "Fund Clearance Certificate" is required in accordance with the U.S Monetary Policy; and it is the ONLY expenses you will incur before the CHECK will be sent to your home address.
Meanwhile, I have been mandated by the Secretary of State (John Kerry) to carry out this assignment without receiving any fee from the beneficiary except the $150.00 USD for the processing of the "Fund Clearance Certificate". To that effect, you are advised to send the $150.00 USD via Western Union to "MARLA BROWN" who is the nominated receiver for the $150.00 USD. The wiring details is stated below:
Receiver: Marla R Brown Receiver's Location: Philadelphia, PA 19132 .USA Test Question: Color Answer: Blue Amount: $150.00 USD
However, I am enclosing herewith a scanned copy of my Working identity Card to prove my real identity as the Secretary of the Treasury of United States. I will be expecting to receive your earliest reply and details of payment for the $150 dollars as quickly as possible with your home address and your full name.
Yours Sincerely,
Jack Lew Secretary of the Treasury
P.S: Please take note that the $150 USD cannot be deducted from the Principal value of the $6.500,000.00 USD, because the CHECK of the total amount of $6.500,000.00 USD is already issued out in full amount.

Attn: Karla
Thank you for your response. Honestly, there are many reasons for you to trust me. What we have here is a legitimate transaction and you must agree with me that in every process, there must be an obligation. However, The only cost associated with your fund release is the cost of processing a "Fund Clearance Certificate", which is estimated to the value of $150.00 USD. The "Fund Clearance Certificate" is required in accordance with the U.S Monetary Policy; and it is the ONLY expenses you will incur before the CHECK will be sent to your home address.
I am the Secretary of the Treasury, and I am also an active member of the Board. Hence, I deserved some respect and honor. I hold you in high esteem and I believe every statement you have told me, which signifies that I have 100% trust in you. Honestly, I would not blame you for your skepticism on this matter, because you have been lied to so many times by high-profile officials. Hence, your reason for losing confidence in this matter. However, I do trust you and I expect you to show me some trust and respect in return since trust is a 2-way street. On the other hand, trust is a relationship of reliance. Trust also means being able to predict what other people will do and what situations will occur.
Trust is both an emotional and logical act. Emotionally, it is where you expose your vulnerabilities to people, but believing they will not take advantage of your openness. Logically, it is where you have assessed the probabilities of gain and loss, calculating expected utility based on hard performance data, and concluded that the person in question will behave in a predictable manner. In practice, trust is a bit of both. I trust you because I have experienced your trustworthiness, and because I have faith in human nature.
Having made the above declaration about the true meaning of trust, I expect you to have a total change of mind and make a wise decision towards receiving your approved payment of $6,500,000.00 USD. I believe that every successful person is wise, and he who achieves massive success holds in his mind the true essence of wisdom.
In all honesty and sincerity, I wish to declare and state emphatically that you WILL NOT for any reason be required to pay a dime more after the $150 USD However, if you still do not trust me at this stage after all this explanation, then so be it.
Please arrange to transfer/remit the $150 USD via Western Union using the understated wiring details:
Receiver: Marla R Brown Receiver's Location: Philadelphia, PA 19132 .USA Test Question: Color Answer: Blue Amount: $150.00 USD
Please get back to me as soon as possible today monday with the 10 digit MTCN # for the $150 USD from western union as soon as possible.
Your Check payment will be deliver to your home address 24hours after the 150$ have been receive .
Respectfully yours,
Jack J. Lew Secretary of the Treasury
