Good day to you!!
I hope this mail finds you in a good spirit and in good health? I am quite aware of your losses in the past years now; it may surprise you that I am also aware of your consignment boxes pursuit in Benin Ghana Togo Nigeria Spain France Malaysia Indonesia China and Korea. My name is Mr. Jeh. Johnson, the secretary of US department of homeland security of America, I’m in charge to monitored all foreign transactions in Africa Europe and Asia.
I have been in the US department of homeland security now since the government of president Barrack Obama, monitoring the various transactions going on in Africa, Europe and Asia, most especially consignments cases and bank transfer. I do not intend to spoil your day or to put you under duress.
But you can not receive any of your consignments boxes pursuit, without a clearance from the US department of homeland security. However, upon my arrival in Benin republic after series of meetings with our president Barack Obama and the United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon, due to numerous complains from other security agencies from Africa Asia, Europe, Oceania, Antarctica, South America and the united states of America respectively, against the Benin government and Nigeria over the rate of scam/fraudulent activities going on in this country and Africa.
When I arrive in the Benin parliament in Cotonou, I found your consignment box clearance file lying on the foreign affair office desk without any attention on a thorough scrutiny I discovered that your consignment have been abandoned by your delivery agent. Meanwhile, I was made to understand that they have tried to reach you, but no way and they have made several attempts to contact your delivery agent but to no avail.
To my greatest surprise, during my recent routine re-checking, I personally discovered that your consignment content declaration documents stated that your consignment contains personal effects meanwhile; it contains United States dollar bills worth over us$10.5million dollars, which made it impossible for the consignment to be delivered to you earlier before now.
Base on this personal discovery, I am contacting you now to let you know that with my position and power as the Secretary of US Department of Homeland Security, I can assist you to legally clear your consignment fund, but you must agree with the following conditions, because I have called our office in Washington, DC from Benin, who has been intercepting all your telephone calls, with the help of MTN, TIGO Vodafone and Airtel network Benin.
