My appreciation letter So far so good, I am very happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Hong Kong. Presently I'm in India for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile,I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how. In appreciation of your assistance I have mapped out as a compensation and wrote on your favour a check worth of Us$500,000.55. So, you can now contact my secretary in Benin republic, Mr Aloy Onu on his e-mail address ( email@example.com) and phone number + 22997601483 ask him to send you the total of $500.000.55 which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. Bear in mind that this $500,000.55 is in draft, not cash, so you need to send to him your full names and address as where this draft/check will be posted/delivered. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free to get in touched with my secretary Mr. Aloy Onu and and furnish him with the below information to enable him send the Bank Draft to you at your own expense as I have done enough by allocating such huge amount to you. Even my current partner is not happy that i have to allocate such amount to you bearing in mind your onchalant attitude to the transaction at its crucial stage. And make sure that you furnish him with the following information: Your full name: Contact and mailing address: Telephone and cellphone numbers: In the moment,I'm very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand. Finally, bear in mind that I had forwarded instruction to my secretary to mail the draft to you once receipt of the above information. Regards, Mr. Kofi
