Dear Beneficiary,


This message is from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol/ Monitoring Unit. I am pleased to inform you 
that your ATM Card worth Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$10.5m) sent 
from Nigeria as part of your overdue payment/funds was returned to our office last week from 
Atlanta, Georgia where it was held due to one unavailable document. According to information 
reaching us, the ATM Card was returned due to your failure to pay the necessary charges required by 
the delivery company to enable it pass through the security agency.

However, after due investigation was made,  we noticed that your ATM Card was stopped and delay 
unnecessarily. Georgia office told us that your ATM Card has no INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY PERMIT, that 
was why you are told to pay sum amount of money which you did not pay. But after further 
investigation, it was very clear that your ATM Card has the INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY PERMIT (IDP) 
attached to it therefore you are no longer required to pay the money you were asked to pay. Now the 
only money you are required to pay is $95 only billed for CUSTOMS AND BORDER CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE 
to clear your file and receive your ATM Card devoid further hindrance. Note that they will process 
the NIGERIA CUSTOMS AND BORDER CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE and send it to us as soon as you send the 
money to them.

Get back to me with your full name, preferred delivery address and direct/cell phone number then I 
will direct you where to send the $95 so that your ATM Card will be delivered to your preferred 
address without any delay. If you're still have interest in receiving your ATM Card, kindly get 
back to me.

Michael J. Fisher
Chief of the Border Patrol
