    Dear Friend,

    Since i waited so long without hearing from you regarding your confirm able draft worth of $850.000.00,I went ahead and cashed the money and registered it with Trans world courier service as box of African clothes with instruction to deliver it to you upon your contact to their office,I am leaving today to another country for three months course.You can contact them now to avoid them delaying with the box.

    Bear in mind that i have paid all the charges they requested,Both mailing charges and insurance.All you need to do is to pay their security keeping fee of $75USD,I would have paid it before leaving but they insisted that it will be paid by you since they don't know when you will be contacting them.Below is their contact details remember that I registered it as African clothes do not allow them know that it content its money if not they may delay you more and charge you more know that the only money you are supposed to pay them is the keeping fee of $75USD:

    Contact Person : Jean. A. Asogba

    Email Address : fedexmanager884@gmail.com

    phone : 234 9025782147

    Remember to reconfirm your postal address to them and you can update me as soon as you receive the box email. Regards,

    Mr John William"
