Dear Friend, Compliments of the day and God's blessings. I am glad to inform you that I have successfully concluded the transaction,the money has been transferred to London.It was done through the assistant of Mr. Howard Ferraro who is a London base business man.Currently I am in London with him and my wife and children. However, I did not forget you because you are the source of my success,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 off on me and the transaction,I understand it was simply because of some circumstances you could not control. In appreciate of your assistance I have mapped out as a compensation and wrote on your favor a certified bank draft worth of US$800,000.00.(Eight Hundred Thousand, United States Dollar Only) I left the draft with my Secretary Mr.Terry Lord on my departure to London. I would like you therefore,to contact him on the below info and instruct him where to send the draft to because i have instructed him on that already. Attn: Mr.Benson Ken Email: email@example.com @yahoo.fr, Phone;+229-9384-3698 I would have love to call you from London where I currently reside but due to the business negotiations and efforts in trying to organise my business here,it makes me unavailable until i settle down Feel free to contact my secretary so that he can release your bank draft to you. Then get in touch with me once you receive your draft so that we will rejoice over that together.I will stop here. Once again,thank you very much and remain blessed. Regards, Barr.Fred Goodluck
