Dear Beneficiary,

I have been waiting to hear from you concerning your beneficiary fund payment via a check of US$850,000.00 but I did not heard from you and the check is about to expire. So, I went and deposited the check with the issuing bank and with the help of the bank manager, I cash the check and in order to avoid long documentation and unnecessary bureaucracy of bank transfer procedures and fees, the funds was packaged in a box and deposited with a diplomatic courier company (Guaranteed Express Courier Company in Cotonou, Republic of Benin) as I have left to Japan for 2 months official assignment. So, you should contact the courier company on their email address stated below for the delivery of the fund box to you.

Contact Person: Mr Paul Adams


You should send below information to the courier company for the delivery.

1. Your full names:

2. Your Address:

3. Your phone number:

For your information, the diplomatic courier company does not know the real content of the box for security reasons; the package was registered with them as a box of "Valuable Materials from the bank" to be delivered to you. Therefore, you should maintain this status. Contact the delivery company as soon as you receive this email for the package shipment to you.
