The scam







My name is Dr. James Mark the new appointed director foreign payment

department Central Bank of Benin Republic. I am writing to congratulate and

inform you that both of us has been favored by the new elected Federal


of Benin President Patrice Talon by appointing me as the new director of the

Central Bank of Benin Republic and instructing my office to review your payment

file and pay your overdue contract/inheritance payment sum of Ten Million Five

Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only ($10,500,000.00) as my first

assignment to this office, during my paper work review in my office this

morning, I discovered from our office payment file that you have not received

your long expected payment of $10.5Million and you have spent so much money

trying to receive your money all to no avail and you have gone through all

process to receive your payment through bank to bank wire transfer, ATM card,

International certified bank draft and cash payment diplomatic all to no avail

and this has cause you much money and till date.

My dear friend the truth of the matter is, there is no amount of money you will

spend or pay to anyone in the process of receiving your payment that will make

you receive this payment without following the due bank payment transfer

process, if not you will keep spending your hard earn money bribing officials

of the bank or individuals without success, because Federal Government of Benin

Republic do not permit any back door payment.

Now that I have been appointed as the new director in charge of foreign payment

with the central bank of Benin Republic and have been instructed and empower by

the new elected President Patrice Talon, I will like to know that your problem

shall be over if you listen to my instruction and do whatever thing that I ask

you to do, because what is holding your payment from getting to you is (CLEAN

BILL OF FUND CERTIFICATE) and nothing more. Nobody will ever tell you the truth

because you?re a foreigner and they all want to deceive you and collect you?re

hard earn money. I am telling you all these because I hate injustice and I knew

you have passed through hell and still have not receive your payment.

So if you still want to receive your payment, you should get back to me

immediately, also have it at the back of your mind that what is holding you

payment is CLEAN BILL OF FUND CERTIFICATE, nothing more will be demanded. All

those certificates that they keep demanding is not really necessary.

Finally, I will advice you as the current director in charge of all foreign

payment to stop any further communication with whomsoever you are in contact

with regarding to this payment either local or international to avoid diversion

of payment, now that I have step into your payment file for final remittance to

you and also stop wasting your hard earn money to individuals hence the problem

is not all about money.

Your Direct phone Number:

Your Current Home Address:


So that I will help you to make sure that you receive your funds with immediate


I am looking forward to receiving your reply as soon as possible.
