Dear Valuable Customer,

We have been expecting  you to contact us for your long existing Package that was registered with us for shipment to your residential location. We thought that the UK National lottery promotion gave you our contact details to contact us, it may interest you to note that a letter was also added to your FedEx package, however we cannot read the full content to you via email for privacy reasons we understand that the package itself is a winning bank Cashier cheque which worth over $1,500.000.00 USD {ONE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLAR} As you know FedEx do not ship money in CASH but Bank Drafts/winning cheques are shippable. The package is registered with us for mailing by the UK National Lottery Promotion Board, We are sending you this email because your package is been registered on a Special delivery Order.
