I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank cheque of $990,000,00 (Nine hundred and Ninety nine thousand) United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the cheque has expired or getting near to expiration / stalement and Dr. Wilson the Director United Bank for Africa told me that before the cheque will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $990, 000, 00 USD to cash payment to avoid loosing this fund under expiration and re-assign it to an international certified bank draft (crossed) cashable by you only as I will be Out of the country today for a 6 Months Course and make it into an international certified bank draft for you which Will be only that can cash it when it gets to you and renew its stalement date to at least 10 working days before Expiration.
What you have to do now is to contact UNITED PARCEL SERVICE (UPS) DELIVERY COURIER SERVICES there as soon as Possible to know when they will deliver your Consignment to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge and Insurance premium. So right now the only money you will send to the UNITED PARCEL SERVICE (UPS) to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($95 USD) only being for the Security Keeping Fee and only of the Courier Company so far.
