Dear Beneficiary, Having reviewed all the obstacles and problems surrounding the transfer of your ($2.5 Million) Two Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars through Western Union and your inability to meet up with some charges levied against you due to the past transfer options,we the Board of Directors, Bank Of Africa (BOA) have ordered our Foreign Payment Remittance Unit to issue you a MASTER CARD where your payment will be uploaded. Today, we got the notice that your Payment has been uploaded into this MASTER CARD and also have registered it with FedEx Courier And Delivery Company. For your information, The delivery charges have been paid and they are supposed to have shipped your packaged (ATM CARD) but they insisted that you must re-confirm to them your current delivery address to ensure accurate Delivery. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Due to the content of the package, FedEx courier mandated that before your package will be shipped, a Stamp Duty MUST be procured according to the New Shipping Creed on all packages leaving Africa .The essence of such Document is to ensure a hitch-free delivery and the amount of the Stamp Duty Fee is us$79. When this is done, FedEx Courier will issue you with the tracking numbers for your package before the shipping commences . Therefore reconfirm your current delivery address. Do not forget that this $79 is all that you should send to them, the rest of the fees have been paid. Finally, for security reasons, and considering the huge amount the ATM Card contains, the package was coded thus, Registration Ref: fed ex/ATM/100. This is the code number that you will send to the courier company while contacting them, and the courier company is not aware what the content of the package is. We told them that it contained some very vital official documents being sent to an offshore staff. Do not reveal the content of the package to the courier company or any body for security purposes. The information of the courier company is here-by given below, 1. Your full name: 2. Your physical address: 3. Your house phone: 4. Your cell phone: Agent:Frank Nelson Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: +2348139670407 Please hurry now as your package might incur demur rage if it stays more than 3 days with FedEx-Express Thanks, Best Regards, Mrs. Sandra love Secretary
