COMPENSATION AND FINANCE HOUSE HEAD OFFICE
At the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which myself and my new partner are having at hand. Finally, remember that I have forwarded instruction to the finance house on your behalf to send the bank draft to you as soon as you contact them without delay. Please I will like you to accept this token with good faith as this is from the bottom of my heart. Thanks and God bless you and your family. Hope to hear from you soon.
My sincere advice to you as a christian is that you should endeavour to pay your tithe to a bible believing church when you get the prize.
