Dear Colleague, Thanks on a very happy note and it is incredible your efforts , time and energy towards the project. Your tonic was why the large cash left finally after so many trails. I write to inform you that at last, the fund transfer had been a SUCCESS. The Fund was later paid out and I have collected my own share.Presently, I am in South Korea where, in partnership with a core investor in the Mining Sector of their economy, we are investing in the industry. But, I am not oblivious of the fact that you did your best in that context, although, it seem that element of doubt crept in. I pressurized the influential woman to concede some amount as COMPENSATION to you, for the resources that you implunged even the time and inconveniences. The sum of US$1.800,000.00 was what she agreed to as your compensation value, and the sum was made in draft but,because of my appointment in South Korea and too, I could not get through to you since your number at any time indicated "not in use", I then handed it over to my secretary.His name is Attorney Robert Frances and his email: (email@example.com) The Secretary is very much informed by me about you and I instructed her to hand over the Draft to you as soon as you contact her. I gave her the CODE 555, which you have to mention for identification. Yours Sincerely and associate, Mr.James Gordon Chiarman chrome oil Middle East and London
