Attention Dear;

My name is Mr. Dean Duskin, the new United States Ambassador to Benin
Republic.

The United States Senate had confirmed my nomination on January 30th
2017 after being nominated for this position by U.S. President Donald Trump
on Jan 25th, 2017. My credentials as the new Ambassador appointed were
presented to His Excellency at the Presidential Villa in Cotonou, Benin, on 6 Feb
2017 (first round) 20 Feb 2017 (second round) I am a career member of the
senior Foreign Service with the rank of Minister-Counselor whose diplomatic
career has been spent mostly in Africa or working on African issues.

I served most recently as the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S.
Embassy in Copenhagen, Denmark. Prior to this, I was the U.S. Ambassador to
Mali, and I have served as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassies in
Tunisia, Senegal and Togo. Other overseas postings include Niger, South
Africa, India and Chad. In Washington, I was the senior desk officer
for Zaire (now Democratic Republic of the Congo), and Deputy Coordinator for Iraq
Assistance.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in European history and French
language
and literature in University of Oregon in Eugene, and I also attend the
University de Haute Bretagne in Rennet, France, from 1979-1980 as a
Rotary
Foundation Graduate Fellow, and also attend the Fletcher School of Law
and
Diplomacy. However, following the resolution of the meeting held with
His
Excellency at the Presidential Villa in Cotonou yesterday with some
members
of the Federal House of Senate, an agreement was reached that the sum
of
US$2.5M must be paid out to you in the form of a compensation for the
years
you have wasted in waiting for your funds to be released. Hence, the
US$2.5M compensation fund has been instructed to be paid out to you in
the
form of a CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL BANK DRAFT drawn on Standard
Chartered Bank.

The said BANK DRAFT will be packaged inside a U.S Embassy Official
Envelope
to be sent to you via Postal Mail at no cost to your mailing address.
And
the time frame for delivery is 72 hours, which is 3 days since it would
be
sent via a Postal Mail Service.

Meanwhile, a "Custom Clearance Certificate" must be obtained from the
Benin
Customs Authority at a fee of $105 USD for a full clearance
certificationon
the BANK DRAFT. Hence, the $105 dollar fee must be paid within 24
hours upon your receipt of this notification via western union, so that
all
necessary arrangement can be made ahead of time. The fee should be sent
directly to me the "Embassy Protocol Officer" with the below
information:

Recipient's Name: Peter Ibiam
Destination: Benin Republic
current City:Cotonou
Test question: URGENT
Test answer: TODAY
Amount: $75 Dollars

Please take note that the "Custom Clearance Certificate" and the BANK
DRAFT
will be packaged together inside the U.S Embassy Official Envelope for
immediate dispatch to your mailing address. Hence, you are advised to
comply as requested to enable me discharge my official duty
accordingly.

Congratulations!!!
Respectfully Yours,
Mr. Dean Duskin.
