Dear friend, It is my pleasure to reach you after our unsuccessful attempt on our business transaction. Well, I just want to use this medium of time to thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving the funds.I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from Taiwan, Dr. Mathew Hui. And everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the Lady Accountant who works with the FederalMinistry of Finance (FMF), and she ren dered a tremendous help to us. My new partner initiated this idea and everything worked out successfully. In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the funds, I have decided to compensate you with the sum of total amount of Seven hundred & Fifty thousand USD(750,000.00 usd) in a Cashier's cheque and my secretary will release it to you upo n your contact with him. This is from my own share.I did this simply to show appreciation to you for your kind support and assistance even though we couldn't complete it together due to some unforseen circumstances. Presently, I am in Taiwan for investment with my own share under the advice of my partner. Re-confirm bellow information's to him to avoid any mistake: 1. Your full Name: 2. Your Postal address: 3.
