Dear Friend. A message came to us through our Benin
Government Authority that they are coming next week Monday to divert all
funds/foreign currencies which have overstayed the stipulated period of times in
the offices here in Benin and your fund itself has been in my office for
long time now. Now my dear after this message came to me today I kindly went to
the bank to convert your total fund of US$2,5million into ATM VISA CARD so I can
deliver it to you through one of the best company here in Benin
I do not want your fund to be among those funds which our
government will divert into their Federation Account, this is the reason I made
effort of rushing to the bank to convert your fund into ATM VISA CARD before
they come for this special operation and the operation usually take place every
6month of the year and half of the year is coming to an end. So my dear I
advised to send your full delivery details so that the delivering company
will locate your address for delivery of your ATM VISA CARD.
Your full name.

that your fund will leave this country within a few days now
