"The Government of Benin Republic" Scams

Would you share this Article with others?

Online users, do not be fooled by email messages which appear as if they were sent by The Government of Benin Republic requesting personal information. This is because the emails are being sent by online scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information. The same scammers will subsequently ask their potential victims to send money in order to collect some so-called check worth thousands or millions of dollars. Once the scammers received money from their victims, they will take it and disappear, leaving the victims depressed and hundreds or thousands of dollars broke.

Remember, the Government of Benin Republic will never request personal information via an email message and do not send money randomly to people around the world. Also, once you are asked to send personal information or money in order to receive a lottery prize, inheritance, donation or free money, it is a scam.

    GREETINGS FROM US EMBASSY

    Attention Please!

    I am Lucy Tamlyn a U.S. Ambassador to Benin I was sworn in on October 23rd, 2015. A career member of the Senior Foreign Service, class of Minister-Counselor, she most recently served as Director in the Office of the Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan in the Department of State. Previously, also served the Department of State as Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy, Lisbon, Portugal; Economic Counselor, U.S. Mission to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris, France; Provincial Reconstruction Team Leader, Erbil, Iraq; and Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy, N'Djamena, Chad. I served at U.S. Missions to the United Nations in New York, Rome and Vienna, and has also had assignments in Brazil, Mozambique, Colombia and Washington. Ambassador Tamlyn earned a B.A. from Saint John's College in Annapolis, Maryland and a Master's Degree from Columbia University's School of International Affairs in New York.

    Your fund issue was brought to my office this morning by the Manager of the United Bank For Africa (UBA Bank) here in Benin Republic and he made me to understand that the said funds worth (USD2.8 Million) and also already uploaded into Automated Teller Machine (ATM Visa Card) but since then they have not heard from you that's why the issue was brought to my office as your Ambassador/Representative in a view of Cancellation and diversion into Government Treasury Account as unclaimed fund to ease the Country's Economic Recession thus,due to your refusal to comply and meet with delivery terms and conditions. Then, I asked what are the conditions but I was told that you are been required to pay for the Yellow Tag and the Clearance which cost (US$250) Furthermore, I pleaded with him to wait because there is no cause/need to cancel the payment that I will do my very possible best to bring the issue to Amicable Conclusion once it has brought to my office.

    Honestly, to the best of my knowledge, I found out that this fund is Legal and Legitimate considering the various Documents that accompany it. I will be here guiding you on this matter as well as backing you up with all the necessary information that may be required.

    By and large, what could be your reasons of refusal and chosen to abandon such huge amount of Funds? I want your urgent reconfirmation of your delivery information to this Office, such as your full name, address and telephone number as soon as you receive this mail. Because this might be the last life time opportunity you are waiting to receive your your funds so do not fail to utilize/grab this wonderful moment you may be looking to make it a reality. I will be waiting to hear from you in order to resolve the issue as quickly as possible to enable you receive your overdue payment.

    Faithfully Yours,

    Amb. Lucy Tamlyn

    You were meant to be receiving $10,000.00usd daily until it completes the correct amount of $500,000.00USD For better understanding of what I mean, please copy this link

    The status now shows Available for pick up by receiver because this amount has been on the system so long for security reasons, since I did not get any reply message from you after sending you several notices with the transaction details to enable you pick up your MTCN, Now you are strongly advised for the last time to go on to make payment of $75 usd for the activation charges via western union money transfer immediately with the details of the western union agent in Benin.

    And send the payment details via email as it clearly appear on the western union slip because it is impossible and illegal to em-bed the activation charges from the total funds transferred because of the lawful restriction that has been placed on your funds that restricts anyone from tempering with your funds. This amount will be made available again within 20 minutes at your resident local western union office after you have settled the activation fee and I will avail you with the full details of the first 2 M.T.C.N CONTROL NUMBERS of $10,000,00usd.IMPORTANT NOTICE: If your payment for the activation fee is not received after Four(4) days this time around, you risk forfeiting your benefit permanently.

    It seems that daily I get emails reported to be from the Benin Republic of Africa, or someone who speaks for them. I'm so tired of getting these, wish I could get off their email listing.

    In the first place, their sentence structure is atrocious and run-on sentences is a sure give away that it is a scam.

    Almost invariably they ask for personal information and to me that is a Big Red Flag! I usually reply with the words "Go Scam Someone More Gullible"

    Is there any way to get them to stop emailing me?

    I was addressed with this to day as well as another person through hangout, trying to get money, also through email the used a private email and phone which didn't match up to the real ambassador info for benin. They didn't let up for an hour, which I didn't bite.But very persistent. I have kept all interactions between them and me, I was quite rude but they just keep trying.
