the money from an Online Balloting System and we have authorized this
winning to be paid to you via a Certified Cashier's Check.
Normally, it will take up to 10 business days for an International
Check to be cashed by your local banks. We have successfully notified
this company on your behalf that funds are to be drawn from a
registered bank within the United States Of America so as to enable
you cash the check instantly without any delay, henceforth the stated
amount of $800,000.00 USD. has been deposited with Bank Of America.
