Scam of the Day 26th January 2017 – Benin or Greenland?

Yet another geographically confused scammer.

This is Mr Peter Godwin the Former United States Ambassador to
Republic of Benin, I came down here in Cotonou Benin Republic for an
ECOWAS meeting and I was searching for some files that I left in this
office before I left and found out that you have not received your
fund, and I asked the present ambassador Mr James Knight what happened
that you have not receive your fund and he said that you refused to
pay the required fee for the delivery of your ATM CARD.

I’m contacting you this morning because the director of the ATM CARD
center here in Benin Republic said that they will divert your ATM CARD
to the Government Treasury just because that you cannot pay for the
service fee of your ATM CARD which is $95.00 only according to them.

But I told them to wait until I hear from you today so that I will
know the reason why you rejected such amount of money $2.5m which will
change your life just because of $95.00.

I want your urgent response as soon as you receive this email and
explain to me the reason why you have abandon your ATM CARD because of
$95.00. But if you don’t need it then I can change your name to
another person so that this Government will not claim this money but I
know that you will love to have it.

Please my dear I want to help you to receive this fund because it was
a big shock to me that you have not receive your ATM CARD and withdraw
your money since 2 years now and I’m very sorry for that and you will
receive your fund before the end of this meeting which will take us 4
days and I will be here to monitor it until you receive your fund.

This is where you should send the fee today and don’t fail to do that
as I have said.

The scammer claims to be in Benin, yet +299 is the country code for Greenland. This scammer’s stupidity is easily explained – the country code for Benin is +229. Yes, he’s too dumb to even get his phone number correct.

How are you doing today?

I am Dr. John Odikpo, the Benin Federal Ministry of Finance. I do not know if this
message will come to you as a surprise because we believe that Diplomat Jerry Leo
must have contacted you regarding the delivery of your ATM Master card worth the sum
of $10.5 Million. The Federal Government of Benin finalized and registered your $10.5 m
fund in an ATM card and a special Agent (Mr. Jerry Leo) is delivering your ATM card.

The diplomat Agent contacted our department today that he arrived Dayton International
Airport; Dayton Ohio, USA with your package. He is accompanied with your ownership
and other legal documents for the delivery of your package. He could not contact you
because he lost your address during a custom search at the Airport therefore he
contacted our department.

He also informed my office that he is having a problem with
the Dayton Airport Customs Authority over a Custom Clearance paper. He told us that People
(2) dsdfd Page 33 of 43 he has already presented the papers covering your ATM card to them
but they are still insisting that a Customs clearance should be presented before they will release your
ATM card to him for delivery to your destination. We are needed to obtain the custom
clearance and forward it to the Diplomat for clarification by the Dayton Airport customs Authority.

We made inquiries and discovered that it will cost the sum of $35 to obtain the required
Customs clearance and fax to the diplomat. We will be able to obtain the clearance today
or tomorrow as soon as the Customs headquarter is opened and you are required to send
this sum of $35 as soon as possible. This is to enable us obtain the clearance and forward
it to the diplomat for the delivery of your ATM card to your destination.

The diplomat Agent can be reached with the below information

Agent: Mr.Jerry Leo
Email: jerryleo186@gmail.com
Phone number:

Please, contact Diplomat Jerry Leo now and reconfirm the below details to him because he
has to be sure before he can deliver the package after the custom clearance today or tomorrow.

Your Full Names ====
Full Address =====
Phone number =====
Copy of ID ========

You can send an email, call or text Mr. Jerry Leo using the above information and reconfirm
your details. Meanwhile, you are needed to get back to us immediately with the payment
of the $35 to enable us to get the required customs clearance today or tomorrow for the
delivery of your ATM card.

USE THE DETAILS BELOW TO SEND THE $35 VIA MONEY GRAM OR
WESTERN UNION.

COUNTRY ……….. BENIN
CITY …………….COTONOU
TEXT QUESTION:……..IN GOD

Once you send the fee, reply back to us with the payment details or contact Diplomat
Paul and give him the payment details and he will send it to us immediately. I look
Page 34 of 43 forward to hear from you as soon as possible because the diplomat said that he is not in
good condition and also there other things need to do but your ATM card delivery is
delaying his movement to other places that he needs to go. Thank you for your understanding.

Scammers steal/buy scripts from each other and as many of them are barely literate and just add their contact details to the existing scripts, you often end up with the confused mess like the mail below where the scammer doesn’t even know his fake name.

Because we have signed a cnotact with TNT which should expire by the end of JAN, 2017 you will only need to pay $100 instead of $500 saving you $300 so if you
Pay before the one day you save $300 note that any one asking you for some kind of money above the usual fee is definitely a fraudsters and you will have to stop communication with every other person if you have been in contact with any.
