Greetings! I am Mr.James 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, West Africa, I traveled out of the country for a 5 Months Course and I will not come back till end of october.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 charges, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it is not drug money or meant to sponsor terrorist attack in your Country. The only money you will send to the FedEx Delivery courier to deliver your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($180.00 USD) only being Security Keeping Fee of the Delivery Company so far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $180.00 US Dollars. I would have paid that but they did not allow me to do, because they said they don?t know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage, but now I am on a course in which they will not be able to contact me for the payment. You have to contact the FedEx Delivery service now for the delivery of your Draft with this information below; Contact Person: Mr. Daniel J.cole E-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: +2348025916881 Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal addressand Direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package When it arrive, and know when it will get to your address.Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their security keeping fee of $180.00.00 US Dollars for their immediate action. Note that it is when you must have pay the $180 for the security fee that the package will be released and the tracking number would be given to you as soon as your package arrive your country.
