Dear Consignment Owner,

Payment File No: A.

24Hrs Service

This is to inform you that your courier service deliveryman has arrived with your consignment box value $10million dollars in Los Angeles International Airport, California United States, as their transit.

With all due respect, you really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing and be assured that you will receive your consignment box within 24hrs as soon you comply with the courier service deliveryman

I known that you will receive this massage as surprise, but this is to clearly inform you that the courier service man by name MR. BRIAN MOLEFE which we send to deliver your inheritance fund $10million loaded in a Metal Trunk Box weighing approximately 110kg has successfully arrived your country and he is at the Los Angeles International Airport, California United States, he need your attention to direct him to the nearest airport to your door step.

therefore you are advise to contact him right now to enable him leave the airport as fast as he can to avoid the box not to be tampered knowing that the papers covering the box is said to be carrying hospital equipment's as he was equally told too. The Consignments like I said are metal trunk box weighing about 110kg (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm) effective Capacity: 680 L) Approximately, FYI: send him text massage to his phone number below in case he dose not have access to check his email at airport okay.
