Attn: Mr. J. C. Newbery,

I/we wish to confirm the receipt of the remittance of US$16,000 for the re-validation of the dormant Cash Deposit Account valued at US$16million.

Similarly, I wish to inform you that there is a great error in our account details. The error is THE CREDIT ACCOUNT NUMBER 044-88628. THE CORRECT CREDIT ACCOUNT NUMBER SHOULD BE AS FOLLOWS:-

BANKERS TRUST COMPANY

CREDIT A/C NO: 040-88628 OF BANK OF INDIA HONG KONG.
A/C OF TRANS GLOBAL. T.
A/C NO 02G-11-30020.

please kindly take note that our credit account number begins with 040-88628 and not as you instructed. Urgently effect the changes immediately and inform us accordingly through the Ecobank email address.

Thanks once again for your prompt compliance.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Earnest Chukwuma.
Director: Foreign Operations
Ecobank International.


Dear Mr Chukwuma,

I must apologise most sincerely regarding the account number mix up.

The mistake was made at the bank when they prepared the transfer. I have found myself most embarrassed by this error and intend demanding a letter of apology from the bank on Monday.

I hope the transfer will proceed unhindered early next week.

Cosmo Newbery
