Plot 1075 Diplomatic Drive
Central District Area, Cotonou Benin Republic

Dear Beloved,

This is to bring to your notice that because of the impossibility of your
fund transfer through the western union network, I am doing all I can to
make sure you receive your funds and I protected your funds for almost six
Months now but I assure you that you still have every opportunity to claim
your entire funds from the United State Embassy Office Benin Republic
(U.S.E.B.R).I am only trying to help you because of the way the payment was
handled in the past. Secondly, I can not sit and watch you loose your funds
after confiding in me. As a matter of fact, there are still decent and God
fearing people here in the United State Embassy Office Cotonou Benin
Republic which I am a good example. Since I came to this office in the year
2016, I have helped so many foreign Contractors/Beneficiaries from all
paths of the world in claiming their long over due fund from the West

If you don't want to conclude these matter before Monday coming week just
inform me today so that I can know what next to do because I can't just be
hearing same story and you will be dealing with people and sending
information's to them and if you cant send the fee then know that your fund
will be canceled and all your effort so far will turn useless because I did
all I can for my government to protect your fund and your personality but
you won't listen, I can help you if you help yourself.If you can be able to
come up with $110 for the Clearance Paper today, I will make sure you get
your fund tomorrow morning, your fund is ready to transfer to you as I
write to you now due to my effort and I don't know why you should be
dealing with people outside my office, just do your best and these transfer
will be conducted.

Finally if this fund will be terminated and there is no way on earth you
can get this fund because the IMF will just have to cancel your name from
the payment file, its better you conclude these matter within the given
date. If I receive the fee , I assure you that you are going to confirm
your funds in your Country WITHIN 48HRS through our choosing Diplomatic
Agent. I shall try my possible best to make sure I conclude the due legal
process and will like you to Take my word because i am strong be hide you
and my effort to this does not end until you confirm the availability of
your fund in your hands.

Please do not allow any body to deceive you and I expect your response and
I don't want you to be tired of these, just take life easy and see what the
result will be by next Week, I will expect your response and the fee sent
by western union. Just get back to me today with the details and I promise
to release your fund to you, its not easy and I believe you have tried as
well, so make sure you conclude these or your fund will be terminated by
the High Authority and that is all I can say for now.

Note that your FUND has been arrived in US embassy and waiting to receive
clearance certificate before the gate pass is given. Meanwhile you are
advise to reconfirm the below information upon contacting us to avoid
delivery to the wrong person.

1, Your full....
2, Your home address. ...
3, Your occupation.
4, Direct Telephone Number. ...
As Soon As the funds are delivered the clearance certificate amount will be
paid immediately.

I am expecting the payment information as soon as you can so we can proceed
immediately. Note that you are expected to pay only $110 for clearance
certificate and you are to pay it to Benin Republic as the origination of
the FUND. Send the $110 through MONEY GRAM once you receive this mail with
the information below for immediate release of your FUNDS,

AMOUNT: $110
SENDER NAME.................?

Once you send the money, try to notify us with the MTCN# AND THE SENDER'S
NAME for easy pick up and for immediate action on the release of your
Package. Please treat this as matter of urgency. Note that any unclimbable
package will be return to the Courier Company after 3 days for final
diversion. So you are urgently advise to comply with our demand so that
your package will be among those that will be deliver this week.

Yours In Service,

Hon. Jerry Martins
U.S. Ambassador to Benin Republic
