I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the co-operation of a new partner from Portugal. Presently I'm in Portugal for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. It may interest you to note that I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring the funds though you were not able to see it through for whatever reasons. After due consideration, I have decided to compensate you for your efforts. I have issued a check of $1,200,000 for you and had to drop it with United Parcel Service (UPS) Nigeria and you are to contact them with the following information as stated below for re-affirmation and to ensure a safe delivery. Full Name: ........................... Address: ............................. Phone Number: ........................ Note that the shipment fee and the insurance of the check as been paid by me and the only fee you will be required to pay is $150 being the security charges for duration the check has been in their possession. I would have made the payment but I do not know when you will get in touch with them as the charges increases with the amount of days they secure it. Endeavour to contact them immediately before the security charge increases with days. You are to contact them with the information as stated below and note that the only fee you are to pay is the Security Charges which is $150 as every other fees has been paid.
