Attached Message
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.
