Another - the fact that it's addressed to <undisclosed-recipients>and "My Dear" means that it's been sent to hundreds of other people as well. Sent from a yahoo email address with a hotmail 'reply to' address, it is not from a real bank, but a scammer in Benin using a mobile phone number!

Dear Friend.

I have been waiting for you since to hear from you but i didn't heard from you I'm here to inform you that I later find out that your fund has been delivered by any courier company due to the amount is large and is very big risk to deliver that such amount through courier company since it dosen't have necessary certificate and i trying since to contact you via your phone which i fail many times.


Your country airport Custom will demand for Clearance Certificate and many other certificate as system of delivering in your country,i check the file of your bank draft and it will be very difficult to deliver it without backing it up with the necessary certificate, And i will not like any condition by which your fund will be on hold by any custom or any security as you know the amount in the bank draft .


I make an solid arrangement with Director of UNION BANK BENIN REPUBLIC for a wire T RANSFER OF THIS FUND INTO YOUR ACCOUNT.Now your fund was deposited in UNION BANK BENIN REPUBLIC for wire transfer,

Its my pleasure to inform you that i have verify from the bank director regarding the transfer of your fund and it was good news because the requested fee was less expensive for you to afford. your consignment containing your fund($1,million usd) i have deposited it with the UNION BANK BANK BENIN . so that your fund will be wired to your account immediately you contact the bank director with your banking details.

However i went to UNION BANK to discuss this with the bank director as its has not been delivered to you However he told me that your fund can be transfered to you via a direct wire transfer(KTT) into your account.He told me to instruct you to contact the bank to apply for a direct wire transfer into your account to avoid loosing your fund due to delay.

Therefore you can contact the bank with the below information, send to them your banking information.

UNION BANK OF BENIN
73/74 HOSPITAL ROUTE
COTONOU BENIN REPUBLIC
([email protected])
Telephone===+22993-40-82-57
UNION BANK BENIN FOREIGN OPERATION DIRECTOR.
DR REV.MARK OLISE.

Send an email to the bank with the above bank email and apply for your wire transfer as i have informed the bank about you already.On receipt of your fund into your account endeavour to inform me immediately you receive your fund in your account. the director told me that the only fee you are to pay is $95.00 usd for the opening of new international account here in there bank that will be use to transfer the fund to your destinated account in your country and it will also serve as the bank transfer charges.

Thanks Remain Bless
Secretary Chris Obi.
