Dear I am happy to inform you about my great success in transferring the fund (USD25.520.862.85) with the help of my new partner in Paraguay. I am very sorry it didn't work out for us, not my fault you know. Presently, I am now in Hong Kong for investment project with my own share of the fund. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and honest attempts to assist me in transferring this fund, though we could not transfer this fund due to the frustration and blackmail during that time. For the assistance you gave me during this period my good friend, I want to compensate you with the sum of (USD 1.500.000.00} for strongly standing by me and all the money you spent during this days. I am fully aware that the fund I am sending you as compensation for your past effort is small, but please, kindly take it like that. As soon as I am through with my investment project I will get in touch with you OK. Please contact my secretary TOM SMITH in his personal Email: email@example.com now for further information regarding the compensation fund for directives and payment into your account in London. I have paid the money into (Bank of England) My secretary will tell you how the fund will be paid to you and how to contact this bank. Honestly, your efforts was highly appreciated. Be free to contact my secretary with an instruction on where to pay the money OK. Secondly, do let me know immediately you receive the compensation fund on my same email address as you have it for sharing of joy after a long time. At the moment, I am very busy with my partner/ business counterpart in the area of investment in Hong Kong. In two weeks , I think we may be free of it all. Thank God that everything is working accordingly at the moment. Finally,remember that I have forwarded instructions to my secretary on your behalf to send the fund to you. So feel free and get in touch with him. Best Regards Desmond Lawrence
