    Federal Bureau of Investigation

    Field Intelligence Groups J. Edgar Hoover Building

    935 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC 20535

    Urgent Attention: Beneficiary,

    I am the Deputy Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation Agent David Bowdich. We have intercepted and seized two boxes at John F Kennedy International Airport in Jamaica New York, NY 11430 coming from a foreign country. We checked the content of the boxes and found it contained a total sum of 4.1 million dollars. Also, within one of the boxes were documents with your name on it as the receiver of the money. We progress in our investigations with the diplomat that accompanied the boxes into the United States, we learned that he was to deliver these funds to your residence as payment of an inheritance / winning prize payment due and owed to you.

    Further, checks on the consignment show that the consignment paperwork lacked the PROOF OF OWNERSHIP CERTIFICATE AND LEGAL DELIVERY PERMIT CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE form. We then confiscated both boxes and released the Diplomat. The boxes according to section 229 subsection 31 of the International Commerce Regulators Code Enforcement Guidelines, your consignment lacks PROOF OF OWNERSHIP CERTIFICATE AND LEGAL DELIVERY PERMIT CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE from the joint team of the Federal Bureau Of Investigation and Homeland Security, therefore, you're replying for direction on how to procure the two certificates, so you can be relieved of the charges of evading tax which is a jail-able offense under section 12 subsection 441 of the taxes code. We will also be asking the IRS to launch an investigation of money laundering if you do not follow our instructions.

    You are therefore required to reply within 72 hours at that point I will walk you through the process of clearing and claiming the money. Failure to comply may lead to you arrested, interrogation and/or you being prosecuted in the Court of Law for taxing evasion and/or money laundering. You are also advised not to contact any bank in Africa, Europe or banking institution for security reasons.

    Yours in service,

    David Bowdich

    Deputy Director

    Federal Bureau of Investigation."
