My name is Mrs. Ethel McGuire, the Assistant sectary of Home Land security here at Los Angeles International Airport California. During my routine checks on our warehouse yesterday, we discovered a cargo box. While scanning the box our cash tracking machine
detected that the content of the Box the Diplomat is delivering to you is cash worth $8.5 Million USA, and we decided to break the box, and we found out that, the box contained all your home address. The Diplomat who arrived with the box made several attempts
to reach you all efforts proved abortive so he decided to leave the box and travel back to his country.
The box is from the Federal Government of Benin Republic, being your compensation from Africa for scam victim. Now, since we have contacted you today, I wish we can use this medium opportunity to complete the delivery to your address, but before we can do that,
we need to obtain 2 certificate on your name such as: Diplomatic Immunity Certificate and Custom Clearance certificate which suppose to obtain from the Federal Government of Benin Republic. The reason why we demanded such certificate from you is because, it
is a crime to bring in money (over US$10,000) 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 the FBI, IRS and Homeland Security will not come
knocking at your door. In lieu of the above, it is therefore mandatory that you provide the Diplomatic Immunity Certificate and Custom Clearance certificate to prove that the funds have no links with any form of illegality.
Being the beneficiary of the Cargo Box, the Diplomatic Immunity Certificate and Custom Clearance certificate is the only way of confirming the source of the funds and it is your responsibility to provide the Certificate before our agent will be allowed to complete
the delivery To You today.
The Diplomat's Flight Details shows that he came from Benin Republic and we have contacted the relevant Authorities in that country to inquire about the process of getting the Certificate. We were informed that the beneficiary of the package will pay for the
Certificate and the cost of this documentation is $350 Dollars, You have to pay this fee directly to origin Country being Benin via Western Union in the name stated below:
RECEIVER NAME. FRANK IWUNOR
COUNTRY. Benin Republic
AMOUNT. . $350
Get back to us with the below information as soon as you send the 350
MTCN. . .
SENDER NAME . .
SENDER COUNTRY. .
Upon the receipt of the payment information, the Certificate will be made out in your name by the Benin Republic Authority, scanned and send immediately via email to us so that our delivery man will be allowed to complete the delivery of your box to you tomorrow.
Failure to pay for this documentation is a confirmation that you wanted to smuggle the funds into the country which is a federal offense and a gross violation of the Patriot Act. It is therefore in your best interest that you pay for the Certificate as instructed
immediately as the consequences of refusing is very severe.
