box, our cash-track machine detected that the content of the consignment box

In accordance to section 34 and 36 of the Custom sector, it is not acceptable
to bring (over US$100,000) into the United States of America without proper

smuggled into the country or the source of the funds is questionable.
It is very important that all the relevant documentations needed to
authenticate the source of the funds are provided to prove that the funds were
earned legitimately in accordance with the PATRIOT ACT so that IRS and
Security will not come knocking at your door. In lieu of the above, it is
therefore mandatory that you shall provide the Funds Origin Certificate (F.O.C)

Being the beneficiary of the consignment, the Funds Origin Certificate (F.O.C)
is the only way of confirming the source of the funds and it is your

contacted the relevant Authorities in Benin to inquire about the process of
getting the Certificate. We were informed that the beneficiary of the
consignment will pay for the Certificate and the cost of this documentation is
just US$59.00 and You are to pay the fee directly to the Benin Custom and
Border Protection via Western Union Money Transfer Or Money Gram in the name
