Kelly ,the Current secretary of U.S Department Of Homeland

Security,i am in charge to monitor all Foreign Transactions In Africa Europe And Asia and this kept me in constantly traveling round the world.

I have been in The U.S Department Of Homeland Security Secret Service now since The Government of President Donald Trump, monitoring the various

transactions going on in Africa, Europe And Asia, most especially Consignments Cases, A.T.M Card Cases And Bank Transfer. I do not intend to

spoil your day or to put you under duress but you can not receive any of your Consignments Boxes, A.T.M Card And Bank Transfer pursuit, without a Clearance from this U.S Department Of Homeland Security. However, upon my arrival in Benin Republic after series of meetings with our President Donald Trump, and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, due to numerous complains from other Security Agencies from Africa Asia, Europe, Oceania, Antarctica,South America And The United States Of America Respectively, and against the Benin Government and Nigeria over the rate of Scam/Fraudulent Activities going on in these Africa Countries and around the World.

When i arrive in the Benin Parliament in Cotonou and i went through all cases of unpaid funds, i found your Consignment Box Clearance File lying

on the Foreign Affair Office Desk without any attention and on a through scrutiny, i discovered that your Consignment have been abandoned by your

delivery agent.Meanwhile,i was made to understand that the Foreign Affair Office have tried to reach to you, but no way and they have made

several attempts to contact your delivery agent but to no avail.

To my greatest surprise, during my recent routine Re-Checking, i personally discovered that your Consignment Content Declaration Document

(C.C.D.D)stated that your Consignment Contains Personal Effects meanwhile, it contains United States Dollar Cash US$40 Million Dollars, (Forty

Million United States Dollars) which made it impossible for the Consignment to be delivered to you earlier before now.

Based on this personal discovery,i am contacting you now to let you know that with my position and power as the secretary of U.S Department Of

Homeland Security and now i am presently here in Benin Republic to handle this matter of all unpaid foreign payment to their respective owners like you,i can assist you to legally clear your Consignment Funds and personally make the shipment to you on my traveling back, but you must

agree with the following conditions.Because i have called our office in Washington,Dc from here in Benin,who has been intercepting all your

and the Foreign Affair Minister in the Benin Capital Commercial Headquarters Cotonou, due to the delay by you as nobody has haired from

    reason I'm contacting you.

    The contents of the boxes is money,the total amount which our scan result showed is $40.million USD. Thus we require that you provide this office with inc permit before the boxes would be cleared and proceed delivery to your location address asap.

    representative from our delivery agent whom will assist you in obtaining and filling out the form needed quickly, that is if you are unable to make it down here within the next 48hrs

    However, if you are unable to come down to the airport and get this done, the authorities has given you the privilege to send the $350 USD, to this agent Mr.Mabut Deng: for him to represent you here in this

    office to have this solved as soon as possible. This is his contact email address in case you want to email him.

Investigations carried out on the diplomat confirms he was assigned to deliver the package to your address as overdue contract payment owed to you by the Nigerian Government through a certified legal and security company in the United Kingdom, so until verifications is complete and it is ascertained that this fund is duly signed out for the purpose of which it was released, he will remain in our custody for the security of the package and also that of every citizen of the United States which remains our primary duty.

    Meanwhile, we have cross checked all legal documents backing up the package but discovered it lacked an important document which must accompany the package from Nigeria for submission to the IRS/IRC before it is termed legal, therefore your package alongside the diplomat will remain under our watch until the document is obtained and tendered, at this point we have no other choice but to put a hold on your ATM CARD delivery.
