Kindly reconfirm to him the following below information:
Your full name_________________________

Note that if you did not send him the above information complete, he will not release the cheque to you because he has to be sure that it is you. Ask him to send you the total sum of ($1.200,000.00 )USD CASHIER'S CHEQUE,which I kept for you. Note also that I will not be reached by email or phone for now because I am currently away in Japan for investment purpose with my share and I will be busy till about six months time or a year.
