This is Mr MIKE HENRY the Former United States Ambassador to Republic of
Benin, I came down here in Cotonou Benin Republic for an ECOWAS meeting and
I was searching for some files that I left in this office before I left and
found out that you have not received your fund, and I asked the present
ambassador Mr James Knight what happened that you have not receive your fund
and he said that you refused to pay the required fee for the delivery of
your ATM CARD.amount of money $2.5m

I’m contacting you this morning because the director of the ATM CARD
center here in Benin Republic said that they will divert your ATM CARD to
the Government Treasury just because that you cannot pay for the service fee
of your ATM CARD which is $200.00 only according to them.

But I told them to wait until I hear from you today so that I will know
the reason why you rejected such amount of money $2.5m which will change
your life just because of $200.00.

I want your urgent response as soon as you receive this email and
explain to me the reason why you have abandon your ATM CARD because of
$200.00. But if you don’t need it then I can change your name to another
person so that this Government will not claim this money but I know that you
will love to have it.

Please my dear I want to help you to receive this fund because it was a
big shock to me that you have not receive your ATM CARD and withdraw your
money since 1 years now and I’m very sorry for that and you will receive
your fund before the end of this meeting which will take us 4 days and I
will be here to monitor it until you receive your fund.

This is where you should send the fee today and don’t fail to do that as
I have said.only Money Gram

Send me the payment information


Me:

Mike,

I’m sorry to be a bother, but I’m new to this sort of thing and I need some direction. The rather brash young lady at Wal-Mart said that all I needed to give you was a number and you would know what to do with it. Can you please provide additional details or information so I am less confused?

Thank you for your patience,

JJ Smith!

Me:

Mike,

Are you having an issue with your email, because you seem to have sent that last message half a dozen times? Maybe check your outbox to make sure it isn’t still floating around in there, my son taught me that trick.

I took a picture of the payment slip and attached it to this email. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Always,

JJ Smith!
