Dear Owner Fund OF $8.5m – briggsstephenn@gmail.com

From: Mr. Briggs Stephen Director Inspection Unit Hartsfield–Jackson International Airport, Atlanta Georgia United-States Regional Division Shipment Officer, Atlanta Georgia. Dear Owner, I am Mr. Briggs Stephen, Head Officer-in-Charge, and Administrative  Service Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection Agency in  Hartsfield–Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia. During our  investigation, I discovered an abandoned shipment through a Diplomat  from United Kingdom which was transferred from JF Kennedy Airport to  our facility here in Atlanta, and when scanned it revealed an  undisclosed sum of money in 2 Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately  130kg each. The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly  declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal  effect/classified document to either avoid diversion by the Shipping  Agent or confiscation by the relevant authorities. The diplomat&s  inability to pay for Non Inspection fees among other things are the  reason why the consignment is delayed and abandoned. By my assessment, each of the boxes contains about $8.5M or more. They  are still left in the airport storage facility till today. The  Consignments like I said are two metal trunk boxes weighing about 65kg  each (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm) effective capacity:  680 L) Approximately. The details of the consignment including your  name and email on the official document from United Nations& office in  London where the shipment was tagged as personal effects/classified  document is still available with us. As it stands now, you have to  reconfirm your full name, Phone Number, full address so I can  cross-check and see if it corresponds with the one on the official  documents. It is now left to you to decide if you still need the  consignment or allow us repatriate it back to UK (place of origin) as  we were instructed.  (REPLY TO THIS EMAIL: briggsstephenn@gmail.com ) As I did say again, the shipper abandoned it and ran away most  importantly because he gave a false declaration, he could not pay for  the yellow tag, he could not secure a valid non inspection  document(s), etc. I am ready to assist you in any way I can for you to  get back this packages provided you will also give me something out  of  it (financial gratification). You can either come in person, or  you  engage the services of a secure shipping/delivery Company/agent  that  will provide the necessary security that is required to deliver  the  package to your doorstep or the destination of your choice. I  need the  entire guarantee that I can get from you before I can get  involved in  this project. Please reply this email strictly at  . Best Regards, Mr. Briggs Stephen Head Officer-in-Charge Administrative Service Inspection Unit briggsstephenn@gmail.com
