Welcome to CITI BANK |LONDON
Hello Jim Francois!!!
Welcome to CITI BANK. This is to inform you that a compulsory COT fee of ?2,500 (two thousand five hundred great British pounds sterling) for the cost of transfer (COT) of your ?5,000,000 (five million great British pounds sterling) from our bank to the Westpac Bank in Australia.
This is because the recipient of the transfer is a non-resident of the UK and after the fee is paid, a message will be sent to the receiver's bank informing them the transfer is legit and should be allowed into the country. Once we receive the payment, we will provide you with the COT code to proceed with the transfer. Until then, then entire funds is on hold.
Kindly revert to us for the payment details.
Thank you for understanding and cooperation.
Thank you for banking with us!
