Very Urgent!!!

My Name is Mr. Andrew J. Savage, III, Senior Storage officer at Charleston International Airport (CHS) SC USA. During our recent withheld package routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, we discovered an abandoned shipment from one Diplomat agent, under shipping forwarder from Hatfield-Jackson Atlanta Intl Airport to our facility custody here in Charleston International Airport SC and when scanned, it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in one Metal Trunk Box.

The consignment was abandoned because the Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee as MONEY rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid diversion by the shipping agent or inability of the diplomat to pay for United States Inspection charges.

The details of the consignment including your name/address and official documents from United Nations were tagged on the consignment box, Please note that this consignment supposed to return to the United States Treasury Account as an unclaimed fund due to your delays in contacting us for the claims.

So i will urgently advise you to write back for further instruction on how to claim your fund which await delivery at Charleston International Airport SC immediately.

Warmest Regards,

Mr. Andrew J. Savage, III, the Senior Storage officer at Charleston International Airport SC.

    Subject: Your Abandoned Consignment !!! 185


    I am William Moon, a senior officer at Charleston International Airport SC. I have contacted you regarding an abandoned diplomatic consignment box and the x-ray scan report box revealed some US dollar bill in it which could be approximately $5.3million dollars and the official paper of the box indicates your contact details. To confirm you as the authentic beneficiary, do send me your full name, your home address, your mobile tel number and the nearest airport close to you.

    For your information, the box was abandoned by the diplomat who was on transit to your city because he was not able to pay the ATL clearance fee of $3,800. I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned box so that we can transact this as a deal and share the total money 70% for you and 30% for me. As soon as I get the requested detail from you for verification, I will pay the clearance fee and make arrangement for the box to be delivered to you which can be concluded within 4-6hours after confirmation is made and upon your acceptance and willingness to co-operate. All communication must be held extremely confidential to ensure a successful delivery. Send your response to my private email address (mrwilliammoon011@gmail.com). I will be waiting to receive your information inorder for us to proceed.

    Best Regards

    William Moon."
