Good morning dear:.Erik Briggs....,
This is Paul Smith, I am confirming receipt of your email below. And Yes, My boss Hon. Hilary Talon left a cashier check of $1,500,000.00 USD with instruction that you would contact me for it just like you indicated in your message. My agreement with him was either to put the check on mail and send overnight to your address or get it remitted it for wire transfer direct into your account depending whether you would it so.
Now, I am happy to hear from you. I will like to give you some directions on what it takes to put a bank draft/ cashier check on mail here and send oversea and as well give requirement for wire transfer direct into your bank account.
First, if you want the cheque to be mailed to your house, all it will cost you is a security approval form to be enclosed along with your check to avoid interception of any kind, This approval will cost you just $150 USD only. But if you want the check to be remitted & wired to your account, then you will first get the IRS tax cleared and then check will deposited for transfer remittance, this IRS plus COT is $270 USD, Also, you are free to let me know if there is any other option you would like to receive this check.
Please get back to me as soon as possible and advise me on what to do as time is of essence.

Dear Mr. Erik Briggs

I don't really know what you mean by an example of this hence i have answered your email regarding the check that was kept for you here by my Boss Mr. Talon
I have the copy of the check and i will mailed it to your address once you comply with sending the mailing fee which i have stated in my previous email.Or you wish to have the check remit for transfer direct to your bank, we will not hesitate to do so.
Kindly get back to me ASAP.

Hello,
That is very helpful, thank you. Do you perhaps have some literature I could look at, or could you send me some more information about what exactly makes you unique?
