0Dear Partner,
I have been waiting for you to contact me for your Confirmable check of  $200,000.00 United States 
Dollars, after you were unable to come up  with the shipping fees,but I did not hear from you since 
that time.Then I went and deposited the Check with EMS COURIER SERVICE, West Africa,I would 
travelled out of the country for a 3Months Course and I will not  come back till end of July 2008.
What you have to do now is to  contact the EMS COURIER SERVICE as  soon as possible to know when  
they will deliver your check to you because  of the expiring date. For your  information, I have 
paid for the delivering Charges, Insurance  premium fees and Clearance Certificate Fees of the 
Check showing that it is not a  Drug Money.
The only money you will send to the EMS COURIER SERVICE to deliver  your Check  direct to your 
postal Address in your country is ($850.00  USD)Dollars being Security Keeping Fee for the check of 
the Courier  Company so far.Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except  
$850.00 US Dollars. I would have paid that but they said no! because  they don't  know when you 
will contact them and in case of demourrage. You  have to contact the EMS COURIER SERVICE now for 
the delivery of your  Check with this information below:  
Director General  EMS Express West Africa  Mr. Charles Martins
Email Address:
Tel: +234 8038795049
Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and direct  telephone number to them 
again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery  and ask them to give you the tracking number after you 
must have sent the  fees of $850.00 dollars for the Security fees to enable you track your  package 
over there and know when it will get to your address.
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 $850.00 US Dollars for their 
immediate action.
You should also let  me know through email as soon as you receive your check.
Yours in Service.
