The only money you will send to the FedEx Couriers Limited at WEST AFRICA to deliver your Bank Draft directly to your postal Address in your country is ($300.00 US) Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $300.00US Dollars. I would have paid for that also but the FedEx Courier Group said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.You have to contact the FedEx Couriers Limited at West Africa now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow; Contact Agent: Mrs. Clara Kaplin Mobile Number: +234-8027-32-8378 Contact Email Address: email@example.com Web-Site: www.fedex.com 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 Pin Number to enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your address.
