Subject: CUSTOMS PROBLEM
How are you doing today? The money you sent has been received, this
company is ready to handle the compensation payment of your funds. But we
are presently having a little problem at the airport about the transfer
of your funds.
your package containing your payment was supposed to move on with the
first flight boeing 997 today,but I must inform you that we are having
some little problem here in the Airport.
I hope you are aware that before a huge amount of funds crosses over the
country they must access the package at the airport. Your package was
summitted to our courier delivery agent heading to your Country. I was
called at the airport that the customs at the airport stopped him and
had a search on your package;every other Relevant documents backing the
authenticity of your geniue certified sum (ATM DEBIT CARD) was inside
your Package but except for the customs duty clearance certificate for
This customs officers here are really strict, they won't allow Mr Lopez
to move along with the flight that just left some few hours back.the
customs officer want you to acquire this certificate immediately,and this
customs certificate will be issued at the airport. I had to leave my
office and drove down to the airport to discuss the issue with them. And
I was informed by the customs immigration officer that the certificate
will cost the total sum of $200.00 USD only, I am really sorry but I know
definitely that you can afford this amount so that your Package will
still leave today and be delivered to you by tomorrow.
I was surprised about the customs immigration officer because I expected
him to call a big amount of money on the certificate due to its value and
recommendations but he said that the certificates prize has been reduced
about 3months ago by the United Nations. According to the explanations of
the customs immigration officer, demanding this certificates from you, he
stated that you are not a citizen of this country that is why they want
you to acquire this certificate, assuming you were a citizen of this
country this demand woundn't have come up from the Customs office.
you need to remit this $200.00 USD now, because I myself have no time to
delay on this issue,I need to go to south africa by Tuesday for the United
Nations General Meeting and I want to make sure I receive a phone
call/email from you that your Package have just arrived your end
successfully before I move to south africa. My plight is this, you need to
acquire this certificate now and be must grateful to me for my help and
