Attention beneficiary,

I have a substantial information to give you, but before I give you any detail about this classified information, I must seek your utmost discretion about these vital information that's gonna change our lives forever. Any mistake might cost me my job therefore I need to know if i can trust you enough in order for me to reveal this secret to you.

My name is Ronald MacLeod, i am the Operations, Maintenance and Transportation officer here at the Miami International Airport FL, USA. Last week Tuesday, as i was making my usual routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from London and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed huge sum of money in a Metal Trunk Box weighing approximately 110kg With Registration RBT-45C. 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 interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the United States Non Inspection Charges which is $3,700USD. On my assumption the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the Miami International Airport Miami Florida till date. The details of the consignment including your name, your email address and the official documents from the United Nations office in Geneva are tagged on the Trunk box.

However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment as the assistant director of Inspection Unit, I will advise you provide your current Phone Number and Full Address, to enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official documents including the name of nearest Airport around your city. Please note that this consignment is supposed to have been returned to the United States Treasury Department as unclaimed delivery due to the delays in concluding the clearance process so as a result of this, I will not be able to receive your details on my official email account. So in order words to enable me cross check your details, I will advise you send the required details to my private email address for quick processing and response. Once I confirm you as the actual recipient of the trunk box, I can get everything concluded within 48 hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery.

Please Reconfirm The Following Information For Your Delivery.

(1) Your name........... (2) Your phone number............. (3) Your complete address............. (4) Nearest airport to your address............. (5) Your Occupation................

Lastly, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned consignment is because I want us to transact this business and share the money 70% for you and 30% for me since the consignment has not yet been returned to the United States Treasury Department after being abandoned by the diplomat so immediately the confirmation is made, I will go ahead and pay for the United States Non Inspection Fee of $3,700 dollars and arrange for the box to be delivered to your doorstep Or I can bring it by myself to avoid any more trouble but you have to assure me of my 30% share. I wait to hear from you urgently if you are still alive and I will appreciate if we can keep this deal confidential.

Warmest Regards,

Chief Inspection Officer

Agent MacLeod
