Attention: dear beneficiary,

I am  Rev. Tony Johnson JP, Director cash processing unit, United Bank for Africa (UBA) the only 
bank appointed by the (O.A.U) members led by president John Kuffor.

Due to on going fraud in west Africa countries where some innocent beneficiaries were asked to pay 
in advance before receiving their money. The above Africa union and IMF held a meeting in Benin 
Republic and resolved to pay all beneficiaries in cash through a diplomatic courier service. The 
union has approved and appointed united bank for Africa to pay you the sum of (US$1,500,000.00) but 
due to ongoing fraud in west Africa, we have taken (US$10,000) from your fund for handling charges.

Therefore the amount you will be expecting from the diplomat is ($1,490,000.00) instead of ($1.5m). 
We have set up a plan to conclude this transaction with you; hence you can give us maximum 
cooperation. We want you to stop further communication with persons, bank or courier that promised 
to pay you through bank to bank, western union, money gram, ATM card, even check, do not listing to 
them because Benin republic financial institution has prohibited such payment due to fraudulent 
activities all over the country. we also understood from the file that you have been dealing with 
the fraudster who has been extorting money from you, My dear, as a senior banker, controlling this 
cash payment now, I advise you not to waste your hard earning money by paying any body in advance 
again, and if you just follow my instruction you will receive your money in three days time.

Your fund will be packaged in a consignment box and shipped through licensed diplomatic courier 
service.  I will also send the picture of the box by attachment to you to see how the money is 
packaged; I will send you more mails to give you more information with my international passport 
for you to know the genuine of this transaction. Therefore, quickly forward your full name, home 
address and direct phone number to me for immediate delivery. All the documents will be sent to you 
if I am assured that you have stopped sending money to those fraudsters. But god will surely judge 
all of them who live by cheating. My bible says what does it profit a man to gain the whole world 
but loose his soul? I am waiting to hear from you with the required information
