Dear Friend, How are you today ? I am very happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the co-operation of a new partner Australia Mr Alain Cooper. Considering your efforts during those trying periods, though it did not workout, i have raised an international Bank Draft of $1.2m usd in your name as a compensation but deposited it with Skyline Courier Delivery Company Benin Republic, before I travelled out of the country for an investment project and will not come back till the end of next month. What you have to do now is to contact Skyline Courier Delivery Company as soon as possible to know when they will deliver the Draft to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charges, The only money you will pay to the Delivery Company to deliver your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($106) being their Security Keeping Fee. I would have paid security keeping fee but the courier company said no because they don't know when you will contact them for the draft. You have to contact the Delivery Company now for the delivery of your Bank Draft with this information bellow. Company's Name ; Skyline Courier Delivery Company E-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org Phone : +229 98950302. Registration Reference No; wwdsc/xxx/100 Code Number:xxxdcsc/6545 Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the delivery and 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 $106 for their immediate action. You should also Let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft. Note; Skyline Courier Delivery Company Benin Republic do not know the contents of the package. I registered it as my photograph (pix) being sending to a friend overseas. They do not know that it contains a bank draft of such a huge amount of money, this is to avoid them tampering with the package. Do not let them know the contents of the package. I am waiting to hear the good news from you. Regards, Rev. Dr Mike Johnson
