Greetings!!! I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $500, 000, 00 (FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE 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 the date it will expire and Mr. 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 $500,000,00( FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND (UNITED STATE DOLLARS) to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till Ending of JUNE 2009. Further more he want you to use this fund for the support of God work and also for you to help the poor once among you, so this is why I have handover this parcel/ you fund to Mr. Fred Evans and as soon as you contact him you will have to pay the sum of $185 for Security up keeping of your parcel and I want you to know that this fund is from the Catholic Church to support the world. What you have to do now is to contact PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER SERVICES as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your Consignment 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 PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER SERVICES to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($185USD) only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $185USD ONLY. 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 the PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER SERVICES now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow; Directors Name: Mr. Fred Evans. Company’s Name: PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER SERVICES E-mail: (firstname.lastname@example.org) Direct Email Address: (email@example.com) 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, that will be after you paid the Security Keeping Fee and when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again, Try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail and ask them how you will make the security fee of $185USD to them to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $185USD for their immediate action. 1, Full Name:…........... 2, Address of Residence:.......... 3, country from:.................. 4, Telephone Number:................. 5, Occupation:.................... 6, Age:......................... Note this. The PARCEL EXPRESS COURIER SERVICES don't know the contents of the Box. I registered it as a BOX of Africa cloths. They did not know the content was money? This is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don’t let them Know that box contents is money okay. Yours Faithfully, Mrs. Felicia Fox.
