Hello once Again
I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $1.5m 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 of Africa Development Bank told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire also many Foreign banks are reluctant to honor Bank Draft usually come from Africa,so he decided that it would be better that he convert the Bank Draft into cash and packaged your funds of USD1.5 Million in form of Personal Diplomatic Package and send it to you via special diplomatic means and you will receive your funds in your Country.
So I told him to cash the $1.5m USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds since Foreign banks are reluctant to honor Bank Draft that comes from Africa as I will be out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of April 2009.
What you have to do now is to contact R. M. Wanlida Courier Company as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your Package 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 Courier Company to deliver your Package direct to your postal Address in your country is ($150.00 US) One Hundred & Fifty United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far, 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 are advice to contact R. M. Wanlida Courier Company now for the delivery of your fund with your deposie SECURITY CODE SCTC/2001DHX/567/;
