Attn: Consignment Box Owner. Sorry for this unexpected message to you. I am Richard Paul, a Security Manager at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport, North Carolina, USA. During a recent routine check at all Security/Storage Units at the airport, I discovered an abandoned shipment in your name coming from Nigeria which was on Transit to your city but was intercepted by the Raleigh-Durham International Airport Security for lack of proper clearance papers as the consignment was scanned and discovered to contain valuable cash between US$4.5Million US Dollars in estimation that was not properly declared to the authorities since the tags on the consignment showed the item contains Personal Belongings/ Family Treasures which is not in regulations to the delivery requirements by The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) so in this regards, the consignment was placed on hold until proper clearances are provided by a reliable Government source. The details on the consignment are tagged as: Type: SUITCASE Wheels: 4 wheels Handles: Trolley handle with top & side handles Approximate Dimensions: Height: 3.20 ft, Width: 2.50 ft, Depth: 1.90 ft. Weight: 180lbs. However, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself as a Security Manager at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport to contact you personally about this abandoned shipment is because I am a GOD fearing man and I would not want you to loose your consignment box since the box has not yet been returned to the United states Treasury Department for further inspection after being abandoned by the shipper, so immediately the confirmation is made, I will go ahead with all negotiations with the airport authorities for the release of the consignment box to me as your representative so I can arrange for the delivery to your city since the encoded Tag on the Bill of entry for the consignment was declared as personal effect so the reconciliation of Correct Manifest information as Valuable cash in the new Bill of entry is needed before the release can be implemented. Lastly, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment Box, I will advise you get back to me as quick as possible and re-confirm your address so that I can be confirm that the box is going to the rightful owner, also list the closest airport to you to enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official documents including the normalization of your Bill of Entry and arrange for the box to be moved out of this Airport to your address. Please confirm your information: 1.Full Names: 2.Home Address: 3.Occupation: 4.Country: 5.Your Cell Phone Number/Home: For confidentiality purposes, I will advise you to email my private email which will be given after receiving your details , for quick processing and response to you, kindly send and confirm your details so we can act swiftly. Regards, Richard Paul Security/Inspection Manager Raleigh-Durham International Airport 2400 John Brantley Blvd, Morris-ville, NC 27560, United States
