_Dear Friend,

I know you will be surprised to receive a message from me after a long
period of time. I did not come to bother you but to share my joy and
happiness with you, I am happy to inform you about my success for
completing the transaction under the cooperation of a new partner,
presently I am in Estonia with my new partner, but will be leaving to
Panama Island for a honeymoon immediately after this COVID-19 pandemic
is over,  Meanwhile, I didn’t forget you and all your effort to make
sure that this transaction was successful, and the money which you
have spent to assist me but due to one reason or another you could not
finalize this transaction with me. For this reason, I have made
arrangements down with my account officer and we have concluded that
it would be safe by Cheque or if you have other means that will be
easy for you,  please let me know so that I will contact my account
officer.  Because of your commitment, kindness, and pure heart, I
have deposited the Cheque of 150,000 USD for you as compensation, at
least to appreciate all your effort and money which you have spent to
help me in this transaction, and I hope you will accept it with a good
heart.

 I am very sorry for every delay and trouble I might have caused you
during the time of the transaction.

Thank you.

Mr. Paul Smith_

The Email contained an excessively large subject. For aesthethic reasons we have truncated the message in the title and reproduce the full subject below.

I am very sorry for every delay and trouble I might have caused you during the time of the transaction.
