Subject: Note ; your package was register as family valuables ,
I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable bank Draft of $800.000.00 United States Dollars but I did not hear from you since that time,then I decided to involve the issued bank to avoid losing of the funds,When i got to the bank,the director told me that the cheque has three weeks to expire that after three weeks it will be invalid then i told the director to convert the check into cash to avoid losing of the funds but he said i have to hire a lawyer before that can be done since the beneficaiy that the cheque was on his or my boss that signed the cheque is not here,a lawyer will be involve for the signing and the procurement of vital documentsneeded for that.
Now am just confused because i don't have the money for that but i have no choice than to hire alawyer who will assist me on this matter as i was told by the bank to signed for the convertion of your cheque,After meeting with the bank lawyer who looked into the matter he told me that he will arrange for the documents as well as the signings for the bank to covert the cheque into cash payment but he said i should pay him $2500.00 for the job, then i explained to him that i don't have the money but pleaded with him that as soon as the job is done ,that the money will be deducted from the money before anything.
The bank director also assured me that after the convertion of your check, the money will be packaged and deposited with the bank official security company for save keeping as well as the delivering of your package to your home address.
