Dear Friend, I am Mrs.Cornelia Maury; I am a US citizen, 52 years Old. I reside in District of Texas 75773. My residential address is as follows 23329 Live Oak Dr.Mineola,Texas 75773, United States, am thinking of moving since I am now wealthy. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Benin Republic many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $42,000 while in the United State, trying to get my payment all to no avail. So,I decided to travel down to West Africa precisely Benin Republic with all my compensation documents, and I was directed to meet Barr.Desmond Ego, who is the member of OUTSTANDING PAYMENT AWARD COMMITTEE and a Human Rights Activist (Lawyer), and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake. He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds amounting to $15,000,000.00. Moreover, Mr.Desmond Ego showed me the full information of those that won lottery, and those whose inheritance had not been paid and the list of all outstanding contractor that were owed that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your information's as one of the scam victims, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Mr.Desmond Ego directly on this information below. Name: Mr.Desmond Ego (Barrister) Email: (firstname.lastname@example.org) Phone: +22993848890 You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing. The only money I paid after I met Mr.Desmond Ego was just $85 for the paper works, take note of that. Thank You and Be Blessed. Mrs.Cornelia Maury. 23329 Live Oak Dr.Mineola, Texas 75773 USA.
