Online users, if you have received the email below, which the sender claim he/she is from Republic of Benin in West Africa, asking you for you help to transfer money, please delete the email and do not follow the instructions in it. The email is being sent by online scammers who entice gullible online users into sending them personal information and money in return for money they will never receive.

If the scammers are contacted, they will ask their potential victims to send their personal information, which they will keep and sell to other scammers. The scammers will then ask their potential victims to send money which the scammers will claim their potential victims must do in order to receive their cut of the money. But, once the money is sent, the scammers will disappear and move to other potential victims. Some may be brave enough to continue scamming the same victims.

    Dear Friend,

    Having viewed your status on-line which motivated me that you can be a trusted person,i am contacting you in respect to my late husband s fund worth US 20Million deposited with ATLANTIQUE BANK BENIN REPUBLIC,for safe keeping purposes.But right now my husband is dead and the financial firm has been giving me several notifications to make the claim of the said deposit. I want a situation whereby i will present you as my Executor to the bank so that you assist me to make the claim of this fund from the financial firm so that it will be transferred to your custody pending my arrival with my only daughter to your country so that we can use it judiciously for investment purposes.

    My only daughter will continue her education in your country upon our arrival once every arrangement as regards this transaction is concluded.I will be offering you

    20% of the fund for your foreign assistance as long as you can help me out in carrying out this project effectively without insinuating greed and selfishness. I am

    contacting you in this respect for the below purposes,

    1,To avoid awareness of my late husbands relatives because they would like to inherit it alone if i dare disclose it to them because they said that i do not have a

    male child for my late husband without considering the welfare of me and my only daughter.

    2,To avoid awareness of Benin Republic Government about the fund since my husband was a former politician in Benin. Once i receive your positive

    response,i will give you more details as to enable us proceed

    Yours sincerely

    Dear beneficiary.

    This is to bring to your notice that because of the impossibility of your fund transfer through the western union network, I am doing all I can to make sure you receive your funds and I protected your funds for long now but I assure you that you still have every opportunity to claim your entire funds from the United State

    Embassy Office Benin Republic (U.S.E.B.R).

    I am only trying to help you because of the way the payment was handled in the past. Secondly, I can not sit and watch you loose your funds after confiding in me. As a matter of fact, there are still decent and God fearing people here in the United State Embassy Office Benin Republic which I am a good example. Since I came to this office in the year 2015, I have helped so many foreigners irrespective of their nationalities.

    Contractors/Beneficiaries from all parts of the world in claiming their long over due fund from the Benin Government.

    If you don't want to conclude these matter before Monday coming week just inform me today so that I can know what next to do because I can just be hearing same story and you will be dealing with people and sending your hard earning money to them which use to turn out abortive.

    If you can be able to come up with $199.00 for the Clearance Paper today, I will make sure you get your fund tomorrow morning, your fund is ready to deliver to you as I'm writing to you now due to my effort and I don't know why you should be dealing with people outside my nds.

    Please do not allow any body to deceive you and I expect your response and I don't want you to be tired of these, just take life easy and see what the result will be by next Week, I will expect your response and the fee sent by WESTERN UNION OR MONEY GRAM TRANSFER. Just get back to me today with the details and I promise to release your fund to you,

    Note that your ATM CARD has been arrived in US embassy and waiting to receive clearance certificate before the gate pass is given. Meanwhile you are advise to reconfirm the below information upon contacting us to avoid delivery to the wrong person.

    Message from His Excellency Dr Thomas Yayi Boni Former President general of Benin Republic, West Africa….

    Well i was to write you because i have tried to call in one way the other but there is no way to get, due this morning i went to the IMF of Benin to check all the fund that was not delivered on my sit last three years ago, now the news now is that the present president Mr Talon was so bad to see foreigners to have their fund, so he press a tax and tax to people and they pay and pay yet they never gets their fund... So on this case i reported this to Human right and UN and they have approved that any abandoned fund in IMF Benin are to be released with immediate effect , so i want you to know that your name are among those who are to released they fund of $1.5 MILLION DOLLARS so what wee need from you now is to be sincerely to stop any other offices or persons here in Benin who claims they have your fund alright?

So in any how you wish to have your fund you will have it via CHECK OR BANK TRANSFER . But remember so members send cards to people from UBA bank that is not the legitimate card of you, there is no way the card will work in your favor, yet they demands for fees and fees till the end, so in this case i will advise you, in any organization they have no right to send you visa card without proper account details on how the card is been issued, so be aware of fake directors and office like DHL.

    Now i personally will indicate to see you have your fund, by bank draft or wire transfer bank, that is only way you will get your fund, so if you wish to have this fund of yours be noted that you will only obtained only HUMAN-RIGHT AND UNITED NATION PERMIT and this was at rate of $150 dollars only. The main reason why you are to send this fee was to see that your name are on the stamp of this certificate permit of this various offices.


    hed in your country with your bank without no problem, if it is for bank wire transfer the bank will not ask for any serial questions when this comes to your account.

    Nevertheless this fee will go to the name of the Human -Right second in command to avoid any problem so once you send this fee then you will kindly provide your details banking details or your home address where your fund will be send to... remember this fee $65 dollars are the only money you will ever spend in this so try and stop any communication with anyone, all i YAYI BONI will assured you is that you will have your fund in good manner...

    COUNTRY................BENIN REPUBLIC


    QUESTION............... MY WORRIES

    ANSWER...................ARE OVER
