Greetings! I am Mr.Collins Wellington.I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $800,000.00 United States Dollars,but I did not hear from you since that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with FedEx Delivery office, West Africa,I travelled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till end of July.What you have to do now is to contact the FedEx Delivery 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 delivery Charge, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque 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 FedEx Delivery to deliver your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($195.00 US) Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Delivery Company so far. Again,don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $195.00 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 dumorrage.You have to contact the FedEx Delivery now for the delivery of your Draft with this informations below: Contact Person: Carl Braitwaith Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone : +234 703-100-4221 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 officially direct you on their delivery procedures and the best way to send the security bill money to them. This will ensure that you avoid making mistake during your transaction with them and know when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this email to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $195.00 US Dollars for their immediate action. You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft. Yours Faithfully, Mr Collins Wellington
