Then I went and deposited the Draft with FedEx Delivery, West Africa,I travelled out of the country for a 3Months Course and I will not come back till end of June.What you have to do now is to contact the FedEx Delivery as soon as possible to knowwhen they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for thedelivering 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 yourDraft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($200.00 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 $200.00US 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.You have to contact the FedEx Delivery now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow; Name: Address: Age: Sex: Tell No: Contact Person: Mr. Mark Anderson Email Address: email@example.com Telephone:+(234)8065558305 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 toenable you track your package over there and know when it will get to youraddress.
