Hello, Its been quite a while since i expected you to contact me for your Compensation with a Confirmable Bank Draft of $875,000.00 USD (Eight Hundred and Seventy Five Thousand United States Dollars) but you did not contact me. So, i deposited the Draft with FEDEX COURIER SERVICE, West Africa. I relocated to London, UK to run my own Business: Ambassador Textiles, UK with my new Partner. All you need now is to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICE as soon as possible so they can deliver your package to you immediately. I have paid for the delivery Charge and ANTI-TERRORIST Clearance Certificate. The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE to deliver your Draft direct to your delivery Address in your country is ($215.00 USD) Dollars only being for Insurance Coverage Fee. Again, you are not to pay any other money except $215.00 USD 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 Mr. James Hardy of FEDEX COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your Draft with this information below: Contact Person: James Hardy Email Address: email@example.com Finally, make sure that you reconfirm the details below: 1. FULL NAME 2. DELIVERY ADDRESS 3. DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBER Send all these details 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 only the Insurance Coverage Fee of $215.00 US Dollars for their immediate dispatch. You should also call me as soon as you receive your Draft. Yours Faithfully, Mr. Hardley Scott +44-702-403-4978
