I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $1.5000.000 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 $1.5000.000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of January 2008.
What you have to do now is to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICES 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, Insurance premium.

The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVI CES to del iver yo ur Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($105.00 US) One Hundred & Five United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $105.00 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 demurrage.

You have to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICES now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow;

Directors Name: Mr. Aminu Yusuf
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 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 address. Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you rece ive this mail to avoid any fur ther delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $105.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.

Note this. The FEDEX COURIER SERVICES 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.
Mr.james Adams.
