Good day!!!

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $800,000 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expire and Dr.Wilson the Director Bank of Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $800,000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for two Months.

What you have to do now is to contact FEDEX EXPRESS as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your Consignment to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge.

The only money you will send to the FEDEX EXPRESS to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($155.00 US) One Hundred & fity Five United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of domurrage.

You have to contact FEDEX EXPRESS now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow;
Directors Name: Dr. James Williams
Tele.......+229 9347 3927
Email Address: (

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct  telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery . Let  me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $155.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.

Note this. The FEDEX EXPRESS don't know the contents of the Box. I registered it as a BOX of Africa cloths. They did not know the contents was money. this is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don't let them know that box contents money ok.

I am waiting for your urgent response.
Yours Faithfully,
Amos John
