Dear Mr. Kalif;
Thank you for your kind email. I hope my response finds you in good health and good spirits.
I am very much a person who's readily interested in other cultures and thusly the ethnic touch and the unorthodox spelling of your official email immediately captured my fancy. Although I have travelled half the world and am as multi-cultured as they come, today is the first time that I have heard about the exotic paradise that is the Benin Republic and I am already in love with it.
Here in America, where we lack culture, we like to capitalize the word "I" (how vain is that?) as well as the days of the week, we however see no reason to capitalize the words "chartered" and "flight". Is it different in the Benin Republic? Is "Chartered" a holy word over there? We also tend to use a space after a period. In fact you would probably use a double space, given the fact that your letter is of official nature and that you're no doubt representing a well thought of bank.
But why I am splitting hairs with you, Mr. Kalif, when you strike me as such a kindhearted person? You'll have to forgive my ignorance but I am just a spoiled blonde Westerner with no manners who doesn't even know the capital of the Banana Republic.
Anyway, Mr Kalif, given the inexplicable fact that I have received two copies of the same email, yours and one other, on the same day, only the names of the senders were different, I have decided that it is an auspicious sign from the gods and my day of luck has finally come.
Can you send me a cashiers check for the 15.5 million? Do you have PayPal? Should you decide to want to meet me in person, here in America, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'd be happy to arrange for your stay at any of our finest hotels, I am thinking Sing Sing in New York or Alcatraz near the lovely city of San Francisco.
