  1. I just got the same letter but now the amount is up to $269. I can't believe they think people are going to fall for this

  2. I got an email purportedly from General Bray but I suspected it was a scam or virus so I didn't open it.Subject Line was Economic Crimes...Benin Republic.All I needed to see to know this was FAKE.

  3. I received an email very similar to this recently but the amount is now $2.7 million. It still has General Shawn A. Bray as the director instead of the current acting director, Wayne Salzgaber. LOL
