Dear Friend, 
I am glad to inform you that I have successfully 
concluded through the assistant of your country man Mr. Emilio Alvarez 
Infante who is a Spanish based business man. Currently I am in Spain 
with him and my family and with my own share of the total sum of US 
$10.5m. However, I did not forget you because you are the source of my 
success today, you made me what I am now though you are not there to 
complete this project with me but I gave all the credit and thanks to 
you. I know it is not your fault or rather your wish to back up on me 
and the transaction, I understood that it was simply because of what 
you must have heard about my country and her business opportunities. 
Actually there are still good ones for example myself. In appreciation 
of your assistance, I have mapped out as a gratification a Draft of 
US$850,000.00.(Eight Hundred  and fifty  Thousand, United States 
Dollars Only) I left the Draft with my secretary Bless Egobia on my 
departure to Spain. I would like you therefore, to contact him on the 
below information so that he can mail the draft to you. Attn:Mr. Bless 
Egobia,  Email: or call  him on his 
mobile 234 805 954 5845 , I would have loved to call you from here 
where I currently reside but due to the recent terrorist attack Mr. 
Alvarez adviced me not to call because all internatonal calls are been 
monitored by the Spanish agents on terrorist control. Contact Mr. 
Bless Egobia immediately in Nigeria so that he will send you the draft 
to you immediately. 
I will stop here until I confirm from him that you 
have received it. 
Once again,
thank you very much and remain 
Mr.John Oparah
