Attention Dear;

My name is James Knight, the new United States Ambassador to Benin Republic.The United States Senate had confirmed my nomination on August 5 2010 after being nominated for this position by U.S. President Barrack Obama on June 28, 2010. My credentials as the new Ambassador appointed were presented to His Excellency President Yayi Boni at the Presidential Villa in Cotonou, Benin, on November 2, 2010. 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. My identity can be verified by simply clicking on the URL link below:

However, following the resolution of the meeting held with His Excellency President Patrice Talo at the Presidential Villa in Cotonou yesterday with some members of the Federal House of Senate, an agreement was reached that the sum of $950,000.00 USD must be paid out to you in the form of a compensation for all the years you have wasted in waiting for your funds to be released. Hence, the $950,000.00 USD 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 24 hours, which is a 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 $95 USD for a full clearance certification on the BANK DRAFT.

Hence, the $95 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: GEORGE OBIKA
Destination: Benin Republic
Amount: $95 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,

James Knight
