I will wire this fund without the knowledge of anybody or any top official in the bank as soon as i wire this funds through, I will immediately run away from the bank and come up to meet you in your country.

The only instrument I need right now is Hard Drive and Tracer Code Hard Diskette (COMPUTERONIC HB DISKETTE 77) which I will use to store all your payment information's. It is sold only at the Security Printing and Minting Company Plc at the cost of $150 only.But if you can buy it and send to me, there is no problem.

After storing your information's on this Hard Drive,I will immediately make the transfer to your bank account.I will achieve this within 72 Banking hours.This is the only way you will get your payment.Upon confirmation of the funds into your account, i will destroy the Hard Drive and the Tracer Code and run away immediately from here.
