Your Abandoned Consignment,
I am Mr. Sam Smith from the Office of Inspection Unit/United Nations Agency in John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) New York USA. During my recent routine check at the Airport Storage/vault on withheld packages, I discovered an abandoned shipment that belongs to you from a Diplomat from London/Africa, when scanned it in our airport scanning machine it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in two Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 25kg each and some people are coming after this consignment to clam it in your name.
The consignment was abandoned because the Contents was not properly declared by the consignee as “MONEY” rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the IRREVOCABLE CONSIGNMENT MONEY MOVEMENT Charges Before bringing in the consignment into US and we refused to return back the consignment where it came from since, we have already received it here in USA.
On my assumption, each of the box contain not less than US$5 Million to US$5.5Million and the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the John F. Kennedy International Airport till date. The details of the consignment including your name, your email address and the official document from the United Nations office in Geneva are tagged on the Metal Trunk boxes in your favor.
However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment, as the assistant director of the Inspection Unit, I will advise you to provide your
current Phone Number and Full Address, to enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official documents including the Name of the nearest Airport around your city.
Please note that this consignment is supposed to have been returned to the United States Treasury Department as unclaimed delivery due to the delay in concluding the
clearance processes. Therefore you are advice to respond to this message and call me immediately as you read. Once I receive your above requested information I can get
everything concluded within 3-6 hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery. Below is my direct telephone number, I am always out of office for inspection, so if I am unable to pick your call you should know that I have gone for inspection just email me and make sure you include your mobile number so that I can give you a call, but for now i am expecting your call today as you read this message.
Mr. Sam Smith.
