Hello My Good Friend,
I have been waiting for you since to contact us for your Funds package of $850,000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since That time.
Then I went and deposited the Funds with EXPRESS DELIVERY COMPANY Continuo, Benin Republic before I traveled out of the country for a 7 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of SEPTEMBER 2009.
What you have to do now is to contact the, EXPRESS DELIVERY COMPANY as soon as you receive this message to know when they will deliver your Package to you to avoid expiring date of you package certified draft.
For your best interest, I have paid for the shipping charge, Insurance premium Fee of the funds showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to Sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.
The only money you will send to the Courier Company to deliver your Funds direct to your postal Address in your country is ($125.00 US) United States Dollars only is Security Keeping Fee of your deposited package so far.
Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $125 US 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, but am sure that there will be no demurrage at this time.
You have to contact the EXPRESS DELIVERY COMPANY now for the delivery of your package Fund with this information bellow;
Contact Person: DR. PETER SAM
Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your current postal address and Direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the delivery, I repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this message to avoid any further delay or demurrage for immediate action of your delivery.
You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your package funds.
