Hello Dear., My name is Dr. Jamie howell Adric, a staff at the bank of Ghana. Some boxes were seized by the (IMF) International Monetary Fund inspectorate team few months ago at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in the United States, and some were seized while moved from Syria and Afghan. So few of the boxes were returned to Ghana and kept in the strong house of our bank. Two of these boxes have your name and email address. On conducting a routine inspection last week, I was shocked at what I saw and the truth is that I do not think the people who brought them here know exactly what they contain. If they knew I do not think these boxes will be here this long.We tried tracing links between your name on the boxes and Ghana but found none. We all know that in other to make wealth we need to cross some boundaries and this opportunity might come one in a life time and our ability to grab this life time opportunity is what makes us who we are. We receive daily reports of missingconsignments, missing or dead refugees and all that We thank God for the present peace policy been invented in Africa. No more incessant wars. Among all the boxes, two were reportedly delivered to you sometime last year in your country.I doubt if those two were delivered to you and if it contains what we have here. I wonder if you know you have such thing here, no one have the power to claim them apart from you, not even me can tamper what is inside as a banker, it must be delivered directly to you. If you are not deceased or sick, you need to come down to Ghana and claim the 2 boxes which have your last name on it. As long as its under my custody i will release it to no one but you except its an order from the Ghana Financial Regulatory Commission.Note: You have to keep this email confidential to avoid entering into a wrong hand or to avoid double claim.If we wait and you don&t respond, we will return the boxes to International Monetary Fund (IMF) as unclaimed parcel.please you can reply to this email (sjjamiehowell@gmail.com)Sincerely Dr.jamiehowell Adric sjjamiehowell@gmail.com
