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.

Send me your information as listed below:
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.

Yours Faithfully,

Dr. James Mark ,
The New Appointed Director
Foreign Payment Department
Central Bank of BENIN Republic,
