Miami International Airport 2100 NW 42nd Ave, Miami,

FL 33126, United States

Greetings my friend,

I have substantial information to give you, but before I give you any detail about this classified information, i must seek your utmost discretion about this vital information that's going to 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 Teusday, as i was making my usual routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from a courier company from Dubai. When scanned, it revealed huge amount of money in silver Metal Trunk Box,The shipment was abandoned because the Contents of the shipment was not properly declared by the consignee as "MONEY" rather it was declared as personal items (I.E SHOES, BAGS AND BOOKS) in order to avoid interrogation by the U.S Customs and Border protection authorities also further investigation revealed that the courier company could not afford to pay for the U.S International Consignment delivery permit (ICDP) which is $15,650USD.

On my assumption the package is still left in our Storage Facility here at the Miami International Airport Florida till date and no one has come forward to claim the metallic trunk box up till date. According to the documents Tagged on the metal box it's estimated value is a little over $6 million US Dollar.

During the Airport's Private search for the owner of the package your name and email contact was among the findings that match the same surname of the actual beneficiary who has long forgotten the existence of the Package. To maintain the level of high security standard required by the airport authorities I have intentionally left out the final details of the content of my discovery.

Although Airport Storage Vault/legislation demands that I notify the fiscal authorities after a statutory period when luggage/baggage storage facilities of this type are called in by the Airport regulatory bodies if nobody applies to claim the package. I urge you to come forward since I can provide you with the details needed for you to claim the metallic trunk Box so that I can be gratified by you in the ratio of 80% for you and 20% for me since the metallic trunk box has not yet been returned to the United States Treasury Department after being abandoned by the courier company for some weeks now, immediately you indicate your willingness to partner with me on this profitable deal and the confirmation is made, I will go ahead by applying for a loan with a loan company and i shall pay for the United States International Consignment Delivery Permit (I.C.D.P) Fee of $15,650 dollars and arrange for the box to be delivered right to your doorstep Or I can bring it by myself to avoid any more difficulties.

Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. To affirm your willingness and cooperation, please do so by replying me at my private email (sirronaldmacleod@gmail.com) for further directives. Also drop your private/cell phone number for easy communication.

Yours Faithfully,

Ronald MacLeod
