I am Mrs.Betty Jones, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. Ireside here in New
Braunfels Texas. My residential address is as follows. 108 Crockett Court.
Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States, am thinking of relocating
since I am now rich.
I am one ofthose that took part in the Compensation in Benin Republic many
years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $45,000 while in the
to get my payment all to no avail.
So I decided to travel down to Benin Republic Cotonou with all my
compensation documents,And I was directed to meet Barrister Andrew Segbeya
(Esq) who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted
him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us
through emails are fake.
He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation
payment.Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have
received my compensation funds of $75,000,00 (Seven hundred and fifty
Moreover,Barrister Andrew Segbeya (Esq), showed me the full information of
those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name as
one of the beneficiaries,and your email address, that is why I decided
to email you to stop dealing with those people.
They are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you.I will
advise you to contact Barrister Andrew Segbeya (Esq) You have to contact
him directly on this information below.
COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
Name :Barrister Andrew Segbeya (Esq)
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting
you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway
with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you
up until you have nothing.The only money I paid after I met Barrister
Andrew Segbeya was just $220usd for the paper works, take note of that.
( NOTE:TELLING YOU TO PAY FOR ANY DELIVERY OR COURIER CHARGE ,THAT IS ALL
NOTHING BUT LIES,I REPEAT THE ONLY MONEY YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY AND WHICH I
ALSO PAID IS $220 usd FOR THE ADMINISTRATIVE/ ENDORSEMENT CHARGE AS
IMPOSED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND YOUR PACKAGE CONTAINING YOUR CERTIFIED BANK
DRAFT CHEQUE WILL BE REACHING YOU THROUGH THE GLOBAL REGULAR MAIL SERVICE.
Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact
Andrew Segbeya so that he can help you to Deliver your fund instead
of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for
different kind of money to complete your transaction.
Thank You and Be Blessed.
