Good day. I want to inform you that I have deposited your Confirmable Bank Draft of $800,000,00 USD United state dollars to the Fedex Delivery services here in West Africa. Due to, I have waited enough to hear from you so that your funds will be transferred through CENTRAL BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) here, but because of the late response I now decide to deposit the Bank Draft with the fedex delivery services with your previous information as you listed it that time. I have paid to them their delivery charges & insurance coverage fee, the only fee to be paid again is their security safe keeping fee of $225 dollars only.I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.I will be travelling to IRAQ to see my boss and I will not come back till next two months,Therefore I will advise you to contact the fedex shipment officer with his contact information as listed below for the avoidiance of increase of their security safe keeping fee. Note that I packaged the Bank Draft inside a magazine where nobody will notice the content, I also told the shipment officer Mr.Johnson Price, that it is ordinary African magazine I want to deliver to my friend abroad to avoid further delay unless you delay to send their security safe keeping fee. Below is the shippment officer contact information including his email address with the parcel reference number, note that without you indicating your parcel number as listed below the fedex delivery services will not listen to you they will be imagining if you want to steal another persons parcel. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: +234-70624-32-014 Shipment Code: CPEL/OWN/9856 Parcel Number: EG2272-NG Also below is the information they need to deliver the Bank Draft in form of African Magazine to your address, this is to avoid wrong delivery as i already gave them your delivery address but you have to re-confirm it to them ok. Full name...................... Home address.......... Country..................... Telphone............... Please make sure the information is complete as they promised that once they receive their security safe keeping fee within 2 to 3 working days the magazine will arrived your door step according to the shipment officer.Once again, the Fedex delivery services do not know the content of the parcel, I registered it as an African magazine they don't know it contains of the Bank Draft inside, this is to avoid them delaying the delivery and besides I don't want you to lose your inherittance funds. Thanks. MR JOHN LARRY
