    Yes, I was contacted by this Joy Oti with the same offer to deliver a package with an atm card and a bank check for a fee of 295.00 dollars to be sent to their agent Ms. Ann Gummoe or Ms Meredith alley and they also informed me about this Mr. Laurent as being my representative to come and pick up this package which is also a scam as he has a warrant out for his arrest here in Anchorage.
