Attn: YOUR COMPENSATION FUNDS!!
I am Rev. Chika Onu, a highly placed official officer of the International Monetary Fund, Cotonou, Benin republic in West Africa (I.M.F). I went to the Western Union this morning to examine exactly what is going on about the documents we request from you to enable us permit the Western Union Office to release the payment to you and Dr. Smith John the Western Union Operation Manager told me that you keep silent over your payment of $4.5million. Is that true? I'm a highly placed official officer in I.M.F Office Benin republic and I stand hereby telling you that the western union is going to pay you. I knew them as Western Union Money Transfer Office (WUMTO).
Note that your $4.5million is from the UN compensation/bailout funds for citizens of UN member countries and citizens of commonwealth Nations for poverty alleviation during this economic crunch and recession.
We are International Monetary Fund unit, Cotonou-Benin republic and we monitor every transaction in Benin republic. So, when we discovered that Dr. Smith John wanted to start transferring payment fund to you we then put everything that they are doing on hold and asked them to provide you or they will be arrested, Dr.Smith John told us that you are in abroad and it's difficult for you to come over here & Sign the Document.
Today been July-07-06, 2016 we called our accredited attorney to assist you sign the ownership certificate document so that you will start picking up your fund from any western union around you and our attorney stating that the official price for the signing is $75.00, this is the only fee and final payment you will ever pay and once you pay it you will start picking up your fund from any western union around you within 25 minutes.
Note that you will receive $6,000.00 per day until you receive the total $4.500,000.00 to avoid stoppages by any agency, The $75.00 is to enable our Attorney Sign the document on your behalf to enable the western union start releasing your fund to you via Western Union money transfer but if you refuse to pay the money then you will come down here in Benin Republic by your self to sign the ownership certificate, so I will advise you to do all it takes to send the money today even if you don't have the money try to borrow it and pay back within 25 minutes.
We are looking forward to hear from you with the payment Detail of the $75.00 BY WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER ONLY OR MONEY GRAM.

Text Question:- A?
Text Answer:- B
Send the following details to me as soon as you make the payment such as senders name and address, Mtcn Number, Text Question and Answer and the amount sent. Once the payment of $75.00 Usd has been received by today, then the western union will release your $6,000.00 within 25 minutes and you will proceed to any nearest western union around you to pick up your fund.
Do make sure that you do not contact the western union directly to avoid you being scammed again because that is the reason why we decided to deal directly with the western union and then give you the information after making sure that the directives are right and legal.
Plead do understand that we would not be responsible for any lose of funds if you go against our orders and contact the western union and get scammed.
I would be waiting for the details as directed as soon as possible.
