Dear Friend, Good Day, I have waited for your Email as you promised but did not hear from you. So i went to the Bank of Africa to confirm if the Cheque is getting close to expire and the Manager of the bank told me that before the draft will get to your address that it will expire. Then I told him to help me and cash the bank draft of $2.5 million to cash payment. However, I have successfully cashed the Cheque and packaged your Cash in a Cargo box and had registered it in the PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY here in Benin Republic because I will travel soon to see my boss and will not come back soon. You have to contact the PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY to know when they will deliver your package to your address. I have paid for the delivering charges and insurance fees. The only money you have to send to them is their SECURITY KEEPING FEE to receive your package and as i do not know when you will be contacting them. HERE IS PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY ADDRESS BELOW/ DR ARNOLD AKA E-MAIL: ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) CONTACT PHONE (+229)98232691 Please, Send them your contacts information to able them locate you immediately they arrived in your country with your BOX. This is the information they need from you. 1. YOUR FULL NAME. 2. YOUR HOME ADDRESS. 3. YOUR CURRENT MOBILE NUMBER. 4. YOUR OCCUPATION 5.YOUR PHOTOGRAPH Try to contact PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY as soon as possible to avoid increasing the security keeping fees. I gave them your delivering address but you have to reconfirm it to them again to avoid any mistake in the delivery. Note; I didn't tell the PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY that it's money inside the box, I registered it as a package of an African cloths/Family Valuables. This is to avoid delaying or any upfront problem during the delivery, So do not let them to know that the package contents money inside until you have received it in your house address ok and this is the code which you send to them for verifications (PX008). Do let me know as soon as you received your package. My Regards to your Family. Yours, Mr,Gad Amatu
