Three years ago I placed a sum of money on deposit with your bank. This was to have funded the start up costs of a high-tec whelk processing plant. Unfortunately, due to the worldwide slump in whelk prices and my husband Chester’s unfortunate incident with the hot-air balloon, I have had to abandon these plans and now require the funds for an investment opportunity in Paraguay.
I would therefore be most grateful if you could arrange to transfer the sum detailed on the attached deposit voucher, together with the accrued interest, to the following bank account:
Bank : The Bank of Bangor
Sort Code 652309
Account Number: 723319854
I look forward to your cooperation in this matter,
Ethel Trellis (Mrs.)
