I am Mrs Wuraola Philips with the Financial Intelligence Unit of
ECONOMIC & FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC). The ECONOMIC &
FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION in alliance with Economic Community of West
African States (ECOWAS) have been working towards the eradication of
fraudsters and Con Artists in Western part of Africa With the help of
the INTERPOL and the United Nation.
We have been able to track down so many of this Con artist in various
parts of west African countries which includes (NIGERIA, REPUBLIC OF
BENIN, TOGO, GHANA, BURKINA FASO, CAMEROON AND SENEGAL) and they are
all in our custody here in Cotonou Benin Republic. In order to
commemorate the 100th anniversary of our great country and also to
revamp the image of Benin Republic to the world to attract foreign
investors, we were able to recover some cash at hand and bank which
were supposed to be remitted to you but weren't due to greed. These
funds are now being retrieved and will be delivered to intended
recipient. We also found a computer hard drive containing your email
contact and that of other victims.
We at the zenith of affairs of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) and the United Nations Representatives in Benin
Republic have agreed that the total sum of USD30M (Thirty Million
United States Dollars Only) be shared among the 50 email contacts
found on the fraudsters hard drive. This email is being directed to
you because your email address was found in one of the Con Artist's
Scrap file in the computer hard drive in our custody here in Cotonou
Benin Republic. You are therefore being compensated with the total sum
$600,000.00 (Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only).
We have made arrangement to provide secure money transfer through a
renowned Money Transfer Office here in Cotonou Benin Republic. Our
workforce have been instructed to fully oversee the transfer process
for security reasons. Feel free to Contact the Head of Operations(Mark
Fisher) through the information stated below:
