FROM UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR
Please i want to inform you that your fund was brought to my desk this morning because the director of the western union here in Benin Republic said that they will divert your funds to the Government Treasury account just because that you can not pay for their service fee of your funds which is $48.00 only.
But i told them to wait untill i hear from you today so that i will know the reason why you rejected such amount of money $3.5m which will change your life just because of $48.00.
I want your urgent response as soon as you receive this email and explain to me the reason why you should abandon your funds for $48.00. But if you don't need it then i can change your name to another person so that this Government will not claim this money.
You should also send the $48.00 today via western for urgent shipping of your funds package send the $48.00 today via western union below:
