Hello Good Friend

Your Abandoned Package For Delivery

I have very vital information to give to you, but first I must have your trust before I review it to you because it may cause me my job,so I need somebody that I can trust for me to be able to review the secret to you.

I am Mr.Todd M.Bowman, head of luggage/baggage storage facilities (Operations, Maintenance, Transportation) here at the Harrisburg International Airport, Pennsylvania USA. During my recent withheld package routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from a Diplomat from London and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a Metal Trunk Box weighing approximately 110kg. The consignment was abandoned because the Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee as "MONEY" rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the United States Non Inspection Charges which is $3,700USD. On my assumption the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the Harrisburg International Airport Pennsylvania till date. The details of the consignment including your name, your email address and the official documents from the United Nations office in Geneva are tagged on the Trunk bo

However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment as the assistant director of the Inspection Unit, I will advise you provide your current Phone Number and Full Address, to enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official documents including the name of nearest Airport around your city. Please note that this consignment is supposed to have been returned to the United States Treasury Department as unclaimed delivery due to the delays in concluding the clearance processes so as a result of this, I will not be able to receive your details on my official email account. So in order words to enable me cross check your details, I will advise you send the required details to my private email address for quick processing and response. Once I confirm you as the actual recipient of the trunk box, I can get everything concluded within 48 hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery.

Lastly, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned consignment is because I want us to transact this business and share the money 70% for you and 30% for me since the consignment has not yet been returned to the United States Treasury Department after being abandoned by the diplomat so immediately the confirmation is made, I will go ahead and pay for the United States Non Inspection Fee of $3,700 dollars and arrange for the box to be delivered to your doorstep Or I can bring it by myself to avoid any more trouble but you have to assure me of my 30% share.

I wait to hear from you urgently if you are still alive and I will appreciate if we can keep this deal confidential. Please get back to me via my private Email: ([email protected]) for further directives.

Dear Arthur

Re: Your Package For Delivery

Thanks for your quick response. I have crossed checked your details with
the information stated on the official documents received from United
Nations office in Geneva attached and have confirmed that you are the
actual beneficiary to receive the consignment being held here at the
Harrisburg International Airport Pennsylvania Storage Vault. To ensure the
full protection of you and me, I would respectfully request we maintain
confidentiality.

Furthermore, for you to have full confidence of the existence of this
consignment, I have attached to this email a confidential copy of the US
Customs Ultra Scan Report(For Your Eyes Only) which indicates that the
trunk box have been scanned and confirmed to be filled with valuable
monetary instrument worth millions of dollars and in order for me to
negotiate with the airport vault authorities for the release of the
withheld package to you, I will go ahead and pay for the US Non Inspection
Charges of $3,700 which was the main reason the consignment was with-held
by the Harrisburg International Airport authorities here in Pennsylvania
since these charges were not paid by the diplomatic agent delivering this
consignment to you.

Please note that once I have been able to clear these release requirements,
I shall board the next flight to your city to deliver these box to you, but
you have to assure me that my own share of the funds which is 30% of the
total value will be given to me on my arrival.

I will go ahead and pay for the Non Inspection Charges and concluded
negotiations for the release of the consignment to you which could be
completed later today, but you have to assure me once again that my own
share of the money will be given to me as I am taking a big risk doing this
processing on your behalf. I would respectfully request that you keep the
contents of our communication confidential. I am making use of the
opportunity since I will be retiring soon without anyone knowing about it,
unless if you reveal it to a third party,which i would strongly advice you
never to do so and remember, 'Loose Lips Sink Ships', i advice you call or
sms me when you receive this email.I will also be needing your identity for
easy identification and your complete data.

Please confirm receipt.

Dear Arthur,
Your Package For Delivery

My Good friend, I want you to know that you need to follow what I said in
my previous email regarding my 30% which will make this deal work out for
the both of us. It is also important for you to know that you are not going
to pay any taxes on this fund because I will personally deliver the
consignment to your home.

It will interest you to know that your maximum corporation will be
appreciated and should be absolutely confidential between the both of us.
Right now I'm expecting a loan to pay for the NON INSPECTION fee to clear
up the consignment. As soon as I'm able to clear the consignment, I will
update you on how to meet with you.

Hope you can understand me clearly. You can text me. View my driver license
for your perusal.

Get back to me at once.

Dear Arthur

Your Package For Delivery

After much deliberation with the authority I have been able to secure the
release of the consignment after a heated negotiation with the airport
vault authorities. I have also paid the Non Inspection fees of $3,700 which
was the main reason why the Diplomat abandoned the Consignment because he
was unable to pay the fee but after making payment I have been required by
the custom airport authority to settle the accumulated storage fee of
$1,980.00 otherwise clearance will not be issue and the flight company
would not board me for delivery. I am now left with only $1,200.00 after
paying for the Non-Inspection fee.

This process requires me to make the payment to their paying office here
before they will issue their receipt for clearance. This receipts serves as
an evidence/proof, thereby satisfying luggage as genuine and legitimate
having passed through the Harrisburg International Airport Pennsylvania
satisfactory inspection examination It has now become imperative for you to
support me at this point so that I can make this payment as required to
avoid delays. What is left now is $780 Due to the exigent situation. We
need to round this up fast. Do try and send me the $780 so that I can add
up to complete the needed amount.

Remember this payment is for the accumulated storage of the duration of the
consignment in their custody before the clearance will be completed, As
soon as the storage is paid I will make my flight schedule available to you
to know my date and time of arrival in your city today.

I did not bargain for this, hence your understanding and assistance is
highly needed for a fast and smooth delivery of your consignment. Payment
of the storage will also give them full confirmation that the consignment
is going to your city.

This is the only role you are to play in this delivery process. I shall
leave Pennsylvania to meet you once I receive the $780 from you and pay for
the storage. I hope you recognize my effort so far in this process, in
ensuring a safe delivery and to guide against any unforeseen circumstance.

Find attached payment receipt for Non inspection paid today.

Await your compliance.
