Attention: Beneficiary Check After waiting for you to come over and receive your compensation and no response was heard, I registered and paid for the Delivery fee of your cashier check valued $8.500 000.00 Million US Dollars with Universal Courier company, Because I would be traveling to China and you can always reach me on my direct China number . I would be going to visit a friend and will not be back until February,2016. I will want you to contact Universal Courier company to know when they will be delivering your parcel containing your compensation bank check. I have taken care of the delivery charges and the insurance fee, the only fee you will have to pay to them is the monthly demur rage/keeping fee which i did not pay for because i do not know when you will be contacting them for the delivery. But if you will be very fast in contacting them, you will be charged only one month demur-rage fee which will cost only US$38 So I urge you to contact them as soon as you receive this email. And send the $38.00 through Ria Money Transfer to the delivery manager. Try to contact him as quickly as possible to avoid increase in demurrage fee. Please reconfirm your delivery address again to avoid any mistakes in the delivery of your funds.
