Goodday! Compliements of the Season, We have been waiting for you since to contact us for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $850,000 United States Dollars which my husband kept for but we did not hear from you since that time. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expire and Mr. Justin Yayi the Director Bank of Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $850,000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till end of April 2008. What you have to do now is to contact the FEDEX COURIER COMPANY as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your Box to you because of the expiring date.For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium. The only money you will send to the Fedex Courier Company to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($115.00 US) Three Hundred & twenty United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Fedex Courier Company so far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except this $115.00 US Dollars. I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact the FEDEX COURIER COMPANY now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow; Contact Person: Mr Ben Johnson Email Address:(email@example.com) Tel/FAX: +229 93 44 5112 Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and your direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this email to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $115.00 US dollars for their immediate action to avoid any delay. Note. The FEDEX COURIER SERVICE company don't know the contents of the Box. I registered it as a BOX of Africa clothes. They did not know the contents was money. this is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don??t let them know that box contents money ok. I am waiting for your urgent response. Yours Faithfully, Mrs D. Halla
