Good Day Sir/Madam! I am contacting you regarding a special cargo that has been abandoned here at our warehouse for over a period of 2 years and when scanned, it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in it. From my findings, the cargo originated from Europe and the content was not declared as money by the consignor in order to avoid diversion by the shipping agent, and also failure to pay the special cargo non-inspection fee of 3,475 . I strongly believe the box will contain about 4.4 million or more. In my private search for a reliable person, my proposal now is to present you as the recipient of the cargo since the shipper has abandoned it which is a possibility due to the fact it has been abandoned for a period whereby a new beneficiary can be presented to the clearance department for claim and also my position at this shipping service. I will pay for the fee and arrange for the cargo to be delivered to your address. Alternatively, I can personally bring it myself and then we share the total money in the box equally. Regards, Mr. Lewis Hawkins Asst. Operations Manager ZIM Integrated Shipping Services Ltd Chicago (IL) Agents: 9950 W.Lawrence Avenue, Suite 215 Schiller Park, IL 60176
