Attn: Beneficiary,

We wish to inform you that the IMF have release your fund sum of $5,5 million US dollars issued on your name the money was deposited with us in this Office I write to inform you that we already issued those documents to accompany your $5,000 payment each day. But the only problem we are having right here is your personal signatures which the Federal Administer of Fund Benin Republic requested that you must sign those documents before we can transfer funds to you. However, I told the officer in charge that it will not be necessary for you to come down here due to your occupation or some other thing that may not allow you to come down here to sign those documents yourself. The Minister Administrator of Fund said that you should get an attorney to sign on your behalf if you are unable to come down here in person.

I think this way is the best and the only way forward for you to receive the funds. I have negotiated with an attorney who would sign on your behalf. His name is Sam Floyd. According to him you are to pay for the accredited attorney. He is charging $190 to be paid before he gets those documents signed in your favor. I told him to consider signing those documents on your behalf today with a promise that you would pay him back from the $5,000 payment you suppose to receive tomorrow morning if he gets those documents signed today.

And his respond is that you have to pay the accredited attorney fee of $190.00 before signing those documents. Well, I asked him for the very last time if he could allow you pay half of his fee today with a promise that you would pay him the Remain balance tomorrow from your $5,000 payment at the western union office once you pick up the $5,000 payment. Well, he said that you should pay the half of the fee $95.00 through western union

today. He want me to ask you if you would be so kind to pay him back the remain $95.00 balance at the western union office once you picked up the $5,000 pay out each day. I am hereby this writing to ask you to let me know if you would pay his balance immediately you pick up the $5,000 payment.

He wants you to pay half of $95.00 today if you are so kind to pay the balance at the western union office once you picked up the $5,000 payment tomorrow. But if you are not kind enough to pay his balance after picking the first transfer just do not bother yourself not to reply because I won’t see another attorney here to do this. Here is information for you to pay $95.00 half of his fee through western union today.

Send the half of the fee $95.00 today via Money Gram or Western Union;

RECEIVER NAME: BRIGHT EZE
CITY:. . . . COTONOU
COUNTRY:. . BENIN REPUBLIC
TEST QUESTION:. WHEN
TEST ANSWER:. . TODAY
AMOUNT:. . $95.00
MTCN. . . . .

The attorney will get those documents signed as soon as he confirms the half of his fee from you. I will advice you to pay him the half of $95.00 and let him sign the documents and you will then pay the other balance of $95.00 from your $5,000 payment.

I await your compliance.

Mr David Fisher Jr,

DEAR VALUED CUSTOMER, SEAN GOMEZ

AFTER WE RECEIVED YOUR INFORMATION, WE INSTANTLY TRANSFER THE FIRST PAYMENT OF $5,000 IN YOUR NAME. AS I WAS TRYING TO EMAIL YOU THE INFORMATION YOU WILL USE TO PICK UP THE PAYMENT IN YOUR COUNTRY, I GOT A CALL FROM THE WESTERN UNION HEAD OFFICE IN LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM. THEY BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT THE $5000 WE TRANSFERRED AND THE REMAINING OF $2,495,000.00 HAS BEEN PLACED ON HOLD THROUGH OUR NETWORK.

I ASKED THEM WHY AND THEY SAID THAT THE HOME LAND SECURITY COMPANY HERE IN BENIN REPUBLIC REPORTED TO THEM THAT WE ARE TRANSFERRING SUCH AMOUNT OF MONEY WITHOUT THE HOME LAND SECURITY CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE. SO, AFTER I CUT OFF THE CONVERSATION WITH THE LONDON HEAD OFFICE, I CALLED THE HOME LAND SECURITY COMPANY HERE TO KNOW HOW THE CLEARANCE COULD BE OBTAINED FROM THEM AND THE COST OF OBTAINING IT. THEY SAID THAT IT WILL COST $150 ONLY TO OBTAIN THE CERTIFICATE AND IT WILL TAKE ONLY 1 – 2 HOURS FOR THE CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE TO BE READY.

I LATER CALLED THE HEAD OFFICE BACK AND ASKED THEM IF THERE IS ANY OTHER THING TO DO AFTER THE CLEARANCE IS OBTAIN AND THEY ASSURED ME THAT ONCE THE CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE IS FORWARDED TO THEM, THEY WILL INSTANTLY RELEASE THE FUNDS WITHOUT ANY DELAY.

THE INFORMATION OF THE PAYMENT WE MADE TODAY IS ENCLOSED.

DO SEND US THE MTCN NUMBERS AS SOON AS YOU MADE THE PAYMENT. IF YOU CAN SEND THE FEE TODAY, YOU WILL PICK UP THE FIRST PAYMENT AND WE WILL SEND YOU ANOTHER $5000 TODAY AS THE CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE IS THE ONLY THING HOLDING THE TRANSFER. NOTE: YOU HAVE TO TRY AND SEND THE CLEARANCE FEE AS A MATTER OF URGENCY BECAUSE THE HEAD OFFICE IN LONDON WILL PICK UP THE MONEY IF YOU DID NOT COMPLY URGENTLY.

REMEMBER, WE WERE INSTRUCTED BY THE IMF TO RETURN THE PAYMENT FILE WITHIN 72 HOURS IF THE BENEFICIARY DID COMPLY TO CLAIM HIS/HER FUNDS. SO, IF YOU WILL SEND THE FEE BUT YOU CAN NOT SEND THE FEE WITHIN 72 HOURS, LET US KNOW SO THAT WE WILL REPORT TO THE IMF THAT YOU ARE COMPLYING SO THAT THEY WILL NOT ASK FOR THE RETURN OF YOUR OWN PAYMENT FILES.
