MY RESPONSE:
Sir,
It appears you have reached me in error. I am not due any payments from Africa. Please contact the sender to inform of this error.
You also provided an incorrect email address for Western Union as "Yahoo" or "Speedy.com.ar" is not used by Western Union. Not to worry, I have forwarded your email to the correct email address for Western Union to notify of this error as well. SPOOF@WESTERNUNION.COM
