Good day!!

I have been waiting for you to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of
$850,000 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 close to expiring 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 $850,000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing
these funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 3 Month
Course and I will not come back till ending of October 2008. What you have to do
now is to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICES directly as soon as possible to know
when they will deliver your funds 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 SERVICES to deliver your
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
Storage Company so far. Again, donʼt 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 donʼt 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: Dr. Bello Ahmed


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 receive this mail to avoid any further 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 donʼt know the contents of the

I registered it as a BOX of African cloths. They did not know the real contents
is money.  This is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Donʼt let them know
that box contents money ok.

I am waiting for your urgent response.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. John Acha.
