Good Day, I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmed Bank Draft of $1.5million united state dollarsS , but I did not hear from you since for a while, Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expiring date and Mr. Peterson Yinka the Director of Bank of Africa Cotonou told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it may expire. So I told him to convert the $1.5million united state dollarsS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration, As I will be out of the country for nine Months Course and I will not come back till the ending of december 2008. However, all the necessary arrangement for delivering the $1.5 million united state dollars in cash was made with FEDEX COURIER COMPANY here in Cotonou Benin Republic, Mr. Peterson Yinka the Director of Bank of Africa Cotonou has package the sum of $1.5 million USD in cash in a Consignment box and the Consignment box was registered as box of Africa cloths this is to avoid them delaying with the Consignment box.For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium also note that $3500USd was taking from the total sum for all expenses incured. The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICES to deliver your Consignment Consignment box direct to your postal Address in your country is ($150.00 US) One Hundred & Five United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.
