The scam

From United States Former Ambassador to the Republic of Benin

This is Mr GODWIN EMERA. the Former United States Ambassador to Republic of

Benin, I came down here in Cotonou Benin Republic for an ECO WAS meeting and I

was searching for some files that I left in this office before I left and found

out that you have not received your fund, and I asked the present ambassador Mr

James Knight what happened that you have not receive your fund since many years

ago, and he said that you refused to pay the required fee for the delivery of

your ATM CARD. I'm contacting you this morning because the director of the ATM

CARD center here in Benin Republic said that they will divert your ATM CARD to

the Government Treasury just because that you cannot pay for the service fee of

your ATM CARD which is$99.00 only according to them.

But I told them to wait until I hear from you today so that I will know the

reason why you rejected such amount of money $1.9 Million dollars which will

change your life just because of $99.00 I want your urgent response as soon as

you receive this email and explain to me the reason why you have abandon your

ATM CARD because of $99.00 But if you don't need it then I can change your name

to another person so that this Government will not claim this money but I know

that you will love to have it.

My dear I want to help you to receive this fund because it was a big shock to

me that you have not receive your ATM CARD and withdraw your money since many

years you will receive your fund before the end of this meeting. Once you

comply back I will give the information to send the $99 and note that I will be

paid before you receive your ATM CARD.
