My Dear Friend, I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred to a Swiss Account with the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay who is an international business man. Due to your effort, sincerity, courage and trust worthiness you showed, I want to compensate you and show my gratitude to you with the sum of US$600,000.00 (Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) I have authorized the Finance House where I deposited the money to issue you international certified bank draft cashable at your bank. Presently I'm in Paraguay for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I did not forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite the fact that it failed us some how. My dear, I will like you to contact the CEO in charge of the finance house for the collection of this international certified bank draft. COMPENSATION AND FINANCE HOUSE HEAD OFFICE CONTACT AGENT: MR. COLLINS RAY. EMAIL: email@example.com Ask him to send to you the total $600,000 (Six Hundred Thousand US Dollars) which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much, so feel free and get in touch with my secretary MR. Collins Ray and instruct him where to send the amount to you. Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the suffering at that time. At the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which I and the new partner are having at hand. Remember that I had forwarded instruction to my secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so get in touch with him and he will send the amount to you without delay. Finally, my sincere advice to you as a christian is that you should endeavour to pay your tithe to a bible believing church when you get the money share of the money with best regards. Sincerely, MR MAVIS JONES.
