Subject: Your bank draft is ready for pick up
Dear Miss Young,
Your bank draft is ready
for collection (see attachment for copy). Your bank draft was raised quickly
through our associate bank ECO bank here in Benin republic in order to speedy
up your payment as required by the king who we treat as a VIP client. To pick
up your bank draft please get your air ticket ready to travel to meet me here
in Benin to identify yourself. The iron-clad instruction by the king is you
have to come to identify yourself then your bank draft will be released to
you. You need to come quickly within 4 days of this notice to identify
yourself then will I release your bank draft to you.
THE ADDRESS TO COME IS:
Carre 122 zone d'ambassard, Cotonou- Benin
Or once you arrive the Cotonou
international airport you call me on phone 22997853291 and I will send the
bank officials to come pick you up at the airport in less than 40
However, if you are buzy
at this moment and cannot travel then let me know so I will take permission
from the king to courier your bank draft to your address instead. If you
cannot come you have to quickly tell me so I get in touch with the king in
Brunei for his approval. Be informed you will be responsible for the courier
charge if you cannot come to pick up your bank draft in person as instructed
by the king. The king needed you come in person to pick up your bank draft,
therefore, he did not make any provision for delivery cost. This message is
Note: As at yet the money on
your draft is placed on hold until you receive the original copy of the bank
draft. I will only authorize the issuing bank to release money to your bank
draft immediately you confirm me receipt of original copy or come. This
security measure is to make sure no other person but you is only able to cash
the bank draft. Hope you understand.
Again, see attachment for your
bank draft copy, I even snaped a photo with it together with the bank
official. I am the man wearing an eyeglasses standing together with draft and
the lady bank official.
