Attention Dear;

My name is Patricia Mahoney the new United States Ambassador to Benin
Republic. The United States Senate confirmed my nomination on August 5 2016 after
being nominated for this position by the U.S. President Donald Trump on NOV 9,
2016. My credentials as the new Ambassador appointed were presented to His
Excellency President Patrice Talon at the Presidential Villa in Cotonou,
Benin, on
6 March 2016 (first round) 20 March 2016 (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
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
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
President Patrice Talon at the Presidential Villa in Cotonou yesterday
with some members of the Federal House of Senate, an agreement was reached
that the sum of $2.500 USD 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 $2.500USD 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
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 $100 USD for a full clearance certification
on the BANK DRAFT.

Hence, the $100 dollar fee must be paid within 24 hours upon your receipt
of this notification via western union, RIA,WORLD REMIT, SMALL WORLD OR JUBA EXPRESS 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: NDU UDOBI
Destination: Benin Republic
current City:Cotonou
Test question: URGENT?
Test answer: TODAY
Amount: $100 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.
Respectfully Yours,
Patricia Mahoney
US Ambassador to Benin Republic.
