Sent from: Mrs. Carolyn Smith Hello My Good Friend, I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Bank Draft worth $19,5 Million USD, but I did not hear from you for couple of Months now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expire and Dr. Christopher, the Director of United Bank for Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to credit the $19,5 Million USD into ATM Master Card to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 7 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of January 2019. What you have to do now is to contact DHL COURIER SERVICES as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your ATM Card to you. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium. The only money you will send to the DHL COURIER SERVICES to deliver your ATM Card direct to your postal Address in your country is ($175.00 US) One Hundred & Seventy Five United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don&t be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $175.00 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. Contact DHL COURIER SERVICES now for the delivery of your ATM Card with this information bellow; Directors Name: Mr. Maximilian Anthony Company&s Name: DHL COURIER SERVICE Email Address: email@example.com Phone Number +229-9488-0628 or +229-69723257 Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and 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 mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $175.00 US Dollars for their immediate action. Note this. The DHL COURIER SERVICES don&t know the contents of the Envelop. They did not know the contents was ATM Master Card. this is to avoid them delaying with the Envelop. Don&t let them know that the Envelop contents ATM Master Card okay. Thanks And Remained Blessed Yours Most Faithfully, Mrs. Carolyn Smith Chief Executive Director Carolyn Smith Foundation. firstname.lastname@example.org
