Your Kind Attention!

I have been waiting for you to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of
$400,000.00 (Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), but I did not hear from you
since that time  then I went ahead and deposited the Draft with the Fedex Courier
Service, West Africa.I travelled out of the country for a 3 months Course and I will
not be back till end of May 2009. What you have to do now is to contact the Fedex
Courier Service as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you
because  of the expiring date of your draft. For your information, I have paid for the
delivery Charge, Insurance  premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Draft.

The only fee you will send to the Fedex Courier Service to deliver your Draft directly
to your postal Address in your country is $265 USD only (Two Hundred and Sixty Five
United States Dollars) and this fee is for the "Security Keeping Fee" of the Courier
Company so far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other fee except the
required $265 USD. I would have paid that security keeping fees but the Courier Company
said "NO" because they don't  know when you will contact them and in case of
demurrage.You have to contact the Fedex Courier Service (West Africa office) holding
your package now for the delivery of your Draft with the information below:

Contact Person: Mr.  Harry cole         
Tel:  +234-807-062-6123

Finally, make sure that you re-confirm the following information to them again to avoid
any mistake on the Delivery of your draft to you:

1. Full Names:..................
2. Address / Country:.........
3. Telphone/Fax:................... and ask them  to give you the tracking number to
enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your doorstep.
Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this email to avoid any
further delay and remember to pay them their Security  Keeping fee of $265USD for their
immediate action.

You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs Sandra Wallace.
