Subject: THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORT:YOUR $300,000 (THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND
DOLLARS ) COMPENSATION
I contacted you
some time ago in respect to the funds transfer of my
deceased client . I
want to sincerely thank you for your help
initially although you
out thinking that the funds transfer was illegal and a scam.
everything was legal
and legit and went well through the assistance
of a Briton, the funds
transfer was a success.
I am on
vacation now with my family in United Kingdom. In a way to
your kind gesture, I have dropped a cashier cheque of Three
Thousand USD ( $300,000) in your
name instructing my personal
accountant Mr. Stephen Edem to pay the
sum to you. This is my
little way of saying thank you for your initial help.
You are to
contact him (Mr. Stephen Edem) on email
+ 2348135540107 .
