Dear Friend, Greetings to you & your Family. I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your fund of One Million United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since then. But i went and deposited the fund with Apex Courier Delivery Company here in Cotonou Benin Republic,before I travelled out of the country for a short Course and i will not come back untill three months. What you have to do now is to contact the Apex Courier Delivery Company as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your consignment to you because of the expiring date. Foryour information I have paid for the delivering Charges, the only money you will send to the Courier Company to deliver your fund direct to your postal Address in your country is ($120) for their Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company. Again, Do not be deceive by anybody to pay any other money except $120.00 only. 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 Apex Courier Delivery Company now for the delivery of your fund with this information Bellow. Name: APEX COURIER DELIVERY COMPANY.
