Dear Friend ,
I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Japan. Presently I'm in Japan for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.
Now contact my secretary, his name is Mr. Eze Okeke , Email: email@example.com asks him to send you the total $3.500, 000.00 which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much, so feel free and get in touched with my secretary Mr. Eze and instruct him where to send the amount to you.
Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the suffer ness at that time. In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with Eze Okeke and he will send the amount to you without any delay.
You can call him on +229 97-577-187
With best regards,
