The scam

Dear Sir/Ma

I want to update you that the meeting today with U.S secretary Kelly and Benin Republic of West African president Talon Patrice, stated that your funds will be released but according to the instruction,the government of Benin Republic said that if these $7,800,000,00 will be transfer through bank to bank wire that the cost will be $480 as these funds will reflect into your personal account between 72 hours. But as mentioned earlier to us that you are currently unemployed and nothing can make you to have this cost in next few months, so now keep me update if you really want this transfer or to ask the UNITED BANK FOR AFRICA for reloads of an ATM VISA CARD and while you will send the courier charges as owner of the card who responsible , so keep me update with your delivery information such as,

Your full name...........
Your currently address..........
Your current phone...............
Your Age........
Your current occupation...............
Your passport....................

With this,i will forge ahead and make sure that once i confirms these information i will know if you want through bank to bank wire or through reloads ATM VISA CARD which the bank will print out your bank account statement proof of reloads your ATM Visa card and then ,i will involves the courier to verify their shipping cost and keep you update so upon making up with courier cost you will have the courier tracking numbers so you will have access of track t monitor the couriers air movement till their arrival to deliver your ATM visa card sum of $7,800,000,00 house.

Please take note that stated you will always to withdraw $25,000 through this ATM VISA CARD.

Thanks and waiting to hear from you
