Hello ,
Your message is well received and noted.I will start by saying a big CONGRATULATIONS to you again for grabbing this opportunity which does not come always.I have also acknowledged your complete house address where the ATM MasterCard will be mailed.I will act accordingly and mail the card as a parcel to you but i want you to understand that you will be charged for security keeping by the bank.
This security keeping fee is certain in the global world and i don't want you to see it as a means to extort money from you for any selfish interest.U.S government made an agreement with the bank and both parties signed that there will be a fee for the safe-keeping of the fund hence we don't know when the beneficiary(you)will come for the claim.And as it stands now,the security keeping fee is $300 USD.The board members of the bank approved that the money will be sent to our security staff by name Kevin L. Parsons
It will be sent via Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart using the below information:
Receiver......... Address..... USA. Amount........$300.00 USD
Please send only by Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart only and made the REFERENCE available to me via email.the mailing charge which will be less than $5 USD will be taken care by the bank and you will receive the parcel at your current address as indicated by you.Please do inform us if you do not prefer to receive your $1.2 Million USD via ATM MasterCard so that we will arrange a bank direct wire transfer to your account.Same charge of $300 USD implies.Thank you as i wait patiently for your urgent respond.Remember,delay is dangerous and must be avoided.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
