Attention and Greetings,
I am Mr. John Campbell, the Chair person in charge of Treasury Department, International wire transfers of Benin Republic Federal Ministry of Finance. You are to reply through this my official email address. email@example.com ) because this is to inform you that your fund was brought to my desk because the director & management of the WESTERN UNION & MONEYGRAM transfer have declared to divert your fund to the government treasury account just because you can not pay the wire transfer fee. In reasoning wisely to this complain I told them to wait until I hear from you today so that I will know the reason why you decide to reject such amount of money USD$2.5Million which is your righful & legal overdue inheritance payment just because of transfer fee.
The reason why i sent this email to you is because its your sweat and for this reason you still have this last chance to claim your fund if you can send USD$87.00 today because i have already arranged your wires ready for its daily wires to you but failling to do this, i will allow them to have power over your fund and am very sorry if you failed as this is the last chance.
Therefore, send the USD$87.00 immediately you receive this email today and email your full name and address to me if you want your USD$2.5Million be send to you by western union OR Monegram transfer but the maximum amount officially allow for it per day wire to you is USD$7,500.00 per day until you receive your complete USD$2.5Million from here . The second option is for you to send me the full detail of your bank account if you want your fund be fully transfer by direct bank to bank wire transfer to your account at once. After you have sent the $87.00 and email me the mtcn numbers, you are to indicate your wish to receive your funds as I have stated above and the funds will be released to you without any hitch.
Here is the western union or moneygram information in the name of my accountant to avoid delay in receiving your fund and remember that i have done my best for you and i will make sure that your wire will begin to be released to you from the moment you sent this $87.00 .
