Dear ,
Complement, this is to inform you that due to your  inability to send the registration fee of your cashier cheque worth of $3.7m usd (THREE MILLION SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS ONLY) and I have waited for long time now yet you fail to come with the requested charges, then I decided to involve the issued bank to avoid losing of the fund since my client is not yet returned .
When I got to the bank, the director told me that the cheque has three weeks to expire, in other words your check will be invalid in a matter of some days now, then I told the director to convert the cheque into cash to avoid loosing of the money but he said I have to sign on your behalf as your attorney before that can be done since  you the beneficaiy that the cheque was on his name is not here , I personaly as a lawyer will be involve for the signing and procurement of vital documents needed.
Now am just confused because I don't have the money for that but I have no choice than to comply with the bank's directives since I want to save your fund. After meeting with the bank Attorney, he told me that he will arrange for the documents as well as the signings for the bank to covert the cheque into cash payment but I have pay him $2500.00 for the job, then I explained that I don't have the money, after pleaded with him that as soon as the job is done, then the money will deducted for his payment before any other thing can be done . He accepted, the bank director also assured me that after the convertion of your check, the money will be packaged in a diplomatic box and deposited with the bank official security and courier company for save keeping as well as the delivering of your package to your home address.
Am happy to inform you that the job has been done, the check has been converted into cash and is right now with FEDEX EXPRESS COURIER SERVICE for delivery, remember the package is registered as family valuables for security reasons and with a seal on it, it can be open only with a security code which I will forward the keys to you.
