Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Please confirm if you are the owner of the above name and contact address as the address is what we have in the two consignment boxes here in Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport .
I am Mr. Ben Collins. Director Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection Agent in Hartsfield International Airport Atlanta Georgia . During our investigation, I discovered an abandoned shipment from a Diplomat from United Kingdom under ship forwarder was transferred from JF Kennedy Airport to our facility here in Atlanta and when scanned, it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a Metal Trunk Box weighing approximately 110kg each. The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent also the Diplomat inability to pay for Non Inspection Fees.
On my assumption, each of the boxes will contain more that $3 to $4M each and the consignment is still left in storage house till today through a registered shipping Company, Courier Dispatch Service Limited a division of Tran Guard Ltd. The Consignment they are two metal box with weight of about 110kg each (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm). Effective capacity: 680 L.) Approximately.
The details of the consignment including your name the official document from United Nation office in London are tagged on the Metal Trunk box. You should provide your Phone Number full address, name of nearest Airport around and other details or disregard. You can send the required details to me for onward delivery.
All communication must be held extremely confidential. I can get everything concluded within 3-6 hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery. But I must get assurance from you concerning my 50% before I will proceed.
I want us to transact this business and share the money, since the shippers have abandoned it and ran away. I will pay for the Non inspection fee and arrange for the boxes to be moved out of this Airport to your address, once we are through I will deploy the services of a secured shipping Company geared to provide the security it needs to your doorstep, or I can bring it by myself to avoid any more trouble. But I will share it 50% to you and 50% to me.
If you assure me of my 50% and agreed with my condition, you should contact me.
I await to hear from you.
Mr. Ben Collins.
