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 transferred to London. It is done through the assistant of your country man 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 complet 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 understand it is simply because of what you must have heard about my continent and her business opportunities. Actually there are still good ones for example myself. In appreciate of your assistance I have mapped out as a compensation and wrote on your favor a Draft worth of US$1,500,000.00.(One Million,Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) I left the Draft with my attorney Sir Chuck Desmond. on my departure to London. I would like you therefore,to contact him on the below info so that he can mail it to you. Attn:Name of my attorney Sir Chuck Desmond Email:( firstname.lastname@example.org) I would have love to call you from London where I currently reside but due to the recent terrorist attack Mr.Ferraro advice me not to call because all Internatonal calls are been monitored by the UK authority.Contact my attorney in Benin-Republic so that he can release your Draft to you. I will stop here.Once again, thank you very much and remain blessed.
