Hello Honorable Beneficiary,

I hope this message reaches you in good health. And I hope you are keeping yourself and your family safe in the pandemic of corona virus Covid-19. With a fight together across the world, we will all overcome this pandemic.

On behalf of the ICRC, I am the logistics director of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), The International Committee of the Red Cross is an international humanitarian movement with approximately 17 million volunteers, members and staff worldwide which was founded to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for all human beings, and to prevent and alleviate human suffering. The movement consists of several distinct organizations that are legally independent from each other, but are united within the movement through common basic principles, objectives, symbols, statutes and governing organizations.

Earlier this year the UN organization contracted the International Red Cross to help in the movement of funds for beneficiaries that has been involved in helping the African refugees around the world and we have come to realize that by our work, it will continue with the Red Cross vision of helping the world to be a better place for all lives. As a worldwide organization, we do understand the difficulty and dangers of moving funds from one country to another, no matter the distance between departure and arrival country.

We work in ways in which we do not break the laws of any country. Now this is how we work, we will retrieve your consignments and have the funds delivered into the International Red Cross account in your country, after which your funds will be paid in installments to you through a monthly swift transfer to the bank account of your choice, from amount ranging from $50,000 up to $500,000 USD monthly until all your funds have been paid to you. The monthly payment will be made to your bank account which will be available for every month. This is a procedure that has been working for over five year, to ensure that there can never be any problem with any government or private authorities worldwide.

I do hope you would be interested in this opportunity. We have been informed by the UN that you have been working with individuals and organizations that will never successfully complete your transaction. So this procedure will be the best option, even though it may not be the best, but you will be satisfied that you can get the funds in your consignments paid to you on a monthly installment.

I'll be expecting to hear from you.
Best Regards.
Mr. Hugo Blanco Jaimez.
Director of Int'l Red Cross.
