Dear friend,
Contact my Secretary for your $800,000.00 which I kept for your compensation because I have finally 
transferred the fund with the cooperation of a new partner from India but due to my tight schedules 
I could not 
contact you earlier before now.Though I did not disclose my real name during the time I contacted 
you for the 
fund transaction but now that I have succeeded in transfering the money  I have decided to give you 
my real 
name here.
Presently I'm in New Delhi, India with the new partner for investment projects. Meanwhile,I did not 
forget your 
past efforts and attempts to assist me in that fund transfer despite that it failed us at that time 
due to your 
doubts.Therefore,you should stop any correspondence with any person concerning the fund transfer.
Now, I want you to contact my secretary bellow:

His name is Mr.Peter Grant 
His email address is:
His Phone Numberis : +229 95403548

ask him to send you the total sum of $800,000.00 which I kept for your compensation for all your 
past efforts and 
attempts to assist me in that transaction.
I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touched with my 
secretary, Mr.Peter 
Grant and instruct him where to send you the Draft.
Please do let me know immediately you receive it from him, so that we can share the joy after all 
the sufferings at 
that time. At the moment,I am very busy here because of the projects which I and the new partner 
are having at 
Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to my secretary on your behalf to receive that 
Draft, so feel 
free to get in touched with Mr.Peter Grant and he will send the certified Bank Draft to you without 
any delay.
