Dear Mr. El Chapo,
Like many businesses, here at Sproggitt and Sylvester Corporate Investments Ltd. we must comply with Anti Money Laundering Legislation, which is intended to inhibit the activities of terrorists and other criminals. If we fail to perform these duties, we risk prosecution that may lead to imprisonment.
Before we accept your instructions for the transfer of $450,000,000 we may need to obtain ‘satisfactory evidence’ to confirm your identity as the information you have supplied thus far will not render us sufficiently compliant to effectively carry out your wishes. Please help us by completing the attached money laundering identity form as a headless photograph of a person holding an AK47 made out of solid gold (see picture attached) may not qualify as proof of identity.
Please do not hesitate to contact me on the telephone if you have any further queries.
Edward Sylvester Jnr.
