Dear Friend, It is my pleasure to reach you after our unsuccessful attempt on our business transaction. I want to use this medium to thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving the funds. I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from South America Mr. Alfredo Gomez Castillo. Everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the Lady Accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF), and she rendered a tremendous help to us. My new partner initiated this idea and everything worked out successfully. In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the funds, I have decided to compensate you with the sum of $275,000.00(Two hundred and seventy five thousand United States Dollars) in a Cashier's draft. This is from my own share. I did this simply to show appreciation to you for your kind support and assistance even though we couldn't succeed due to some unforeseen circumstances. Presently, I am in South Korea for investment with my own share under the advice of my partner. Contact my secretary in west africa her name is mrs marciana bein, and send him your contact address where you want the draft to be sent to you. Bellow is the informationЎЇs you should forward to my secretary Full name: Contact address: Telephone Number: Identity Proved: Ages: Marital status: Occupation: E-mail Name: marciana bein Your sincerely Mr. M.Luke
