Subject: Greetings From FedEx Delivery Company!

Attention: Beneficiary,

This is to bring to your notice that, I have paid there activation fee and the delivery of your Atm Card.I paid it because the Atm Card $2,500,000.00 has less five days to expire and when it expires, the money will go into Government purse. With that I decided to help you pay the money so that, the Atm Card will not expire, because I know when you get your Atm Card definitely you must pay me back my money and even compensate me for helping you.

Now I want you to contact FedEx Delivery Service with your Full Contact information’s so that they will deliver your Atm Card to your designated address without any delay. Like I stated earlier, the delivery charges has been paid but I did not pay their official keeping fees since they refused.

They refused and the reason is that they do not know when you are going to contact them and demurrage might have increase. They told me that their keeping fee is $50 per day and I deposited it yesterday been Friday. Below is their Contact Information’s,
