consignment box convey by Courier Diplomatic agent. During the
scanning of your consignment box, our cash-track machine detected that
the content of the consignment box is cash worth US$10,500,000.00
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 documentations and clearance because it shows
that the money is either being 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 Homeland 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) to prove that the funds is not
linked with any form of illegality.

fee directly to the Benin Custom and Border Protection via Western
