Meanwhile, after due scrutiny and verification, I confirmed that you have attempted to fulfilling all the necessary obligations that will enable the release of your payment. Unfortunately, your payment was not released to you due to flimsy excuses from the Bank officials in charge of your payment, because they have the intention of diverting your funds to their private accounts in order to satisfy their selfish interest.
You are however lucky that we dictated their evil plans and therefore call for the submission of your payment files to us so we can personally handle the payment assignment to ensure that you receive your funds accordingly.
