COT To Complete Transfer

Standard Credit Union Bank
to me
19 minutes agoDetails
Dear Mary

This is a temporary account. You have been advice to transfer the whole
amount because there is a limited time for the liquidation of the funds. We
have confirmed that basically the funds to be transferred must go to Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) before it is confirmed in your account.
We have confirmed your account details and the transfer can be successful.

Sequel to your last mail concerning the transfer, the British Government
interrogates international transfer of such amount of money especially when
its not registered to British Government. The Transfer fee consist of the
the Registration Fee, Income tax.

Central Bank of England which is the Haven Bank is responsible for
initialization of funds. Its just like you have the Federal Reserve Bank of United States,
this bank is in charge of all international transfer of funds into and outside
United States. The Central Bank of England takes the money out of my bank and
transfer the funds to Federal Reserve Bank which will automatically transfer the
money to your local bank. The services render to transfer the funds is what is
referred to Cost of Transfer and the computer generated code us given to you
immediately you paid the commission on transfer charge.

I have received your mail and have also consulted my superiors as regards
the issue. We discovered that the Bank of England was responsible for
truncating the transfer of the funds to your account.

Price charged by individual entities for services supplied to one another
in multi-department, multi-office, or multinational firms. Transfer price
policy is generally aimed at (1) evaluating financial performance of
different business units (profit centers) of a conglomerate, and/or to (2)
shift earnings from a high tax jurisdiction to a low-tax one. Tax
authorities usually frown upon transfer pricing aimed at tax avoidance and
insist that each internal part of the firm deals with the other on 'arm's
length' (market price) basis.

As a result of the above, you will be required to pay a Transaction Code
(cost of transfer) fee of $976.00 (Nine Hundred and Seventy Six United
States Dollars) for the provision of a Transaction Code to complete your

Normally when you are transferring money from one account to another, there
is usually a commission that is meant to be paid. According to the FSA
policy in the UK, Commission on Transfer Charges are charged at a rate of
0.00976% of the fund as COT. We apologize for any inconveniency this might
cause you but it is not my making as I am only following laid down policies
by the management as you are advised to make this payment as soon as
possible in order for you to conclude this transaction immediately. Please
note that this transfer should be completed within 2 days, as it was solely
set up for the immediate transfer of your WILL fund thus you are advised to
act swiftly.

Please find a copy of our invoice. You are to pay the amount due within the
next 2 ( Two ) days. Please note that should we not receive your payment in
due time, we will be forced to cancel the impending transfer. Should you
have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact
