Re: Your Abandoned Package For Delivery
I have very vital information to give to you, but first I must have your trust before I can reveal it to you because it may
cause me my job.So I need someone I can trust for me to reveal such secret.
I am Mr.David Halliday head of luggage/baggage storage facilities here at Dakar International Airport. During my recent
withheld package routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from a Diplomat and when
scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a metal trunk box. 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
$1,800USD.The consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the International Airport 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 the
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 processes 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 48hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery.
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, We shall both pay for the United States Non Inspection Clearance Fee of $1,800 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. Please
get back me.
Waiting for your urgent reply.
Assistant Inspection Director
