16th August 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 16th August 2018, telephone number +22962889489 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Lucy Tamlyn using email address amb_lucytamlyn@outlook.com as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam.

In Advance Fee Fraud Scams, the scammer will offer you something of high value (a large sum of money or gold for example) and all you have to do is pay a "small" fee. What the scammer is offering you does not actually exist and the scammer will come up with fee after fee that needs to be paid by the victims, until he either runs out of money or realises that he has been scammed. The scammer will often pretend to be real people or companies, use fake websites and introduce various characters, all with the aim of convincing the victim that what is being offered to him is real.

Here is the email that the scammer sent to his victims.
U.S. AMBASSADOR TO BENIN REPUBLIC
OFFICE THE U.S AMBASSADOR TO BENIN REPUBLIC
NO.2, ROUTE DE L'AEROPORT, COTONOU, BENIN;
Telephone: +229 62889489

Attention: Beneficiary,

I shall be coming to your country for an official meeting on Monday
13/August/2018 and i shall be bringing your Fund of $15.5m along
with me but this time i will not go through Custom because as an
Ambassador to Republic Du Benin, I am a US GOVERNMENT AGENT and i have
the veto power to go through Custom,

As soon as i am through with my meeting i shall then proceed to your
registered house address with your Consignment Fund. Without missing
words, I am convinced 100% that you have had bitter experience with
various 'scam claiming to be high government officials and thereby
defrauding you of your 'hard-earned money'. The activities of these
scam has changed your perspective about conducting business on the
internet, and you now believed there is no genuine business that can
be conducted on the internet. Well, I am an American and the internet
was created by Americans for the purpose of creating
awareness for your products/services and conducting genuine business with ease.

I am fully committed to deliver the "diplomatic consignment" to you at
your door step within 48hours in order to differentiate myself from
the many Benin Republic, Nigeria and other government officials you
have dealt with.

I am a full citizen of the United States, but I was on a Foreign
Mission here in Benin as a US Ambassador. Hence, I am making every
effort to ensure that no citizen of the United States and other part
of the world is cheated by Benin Republic. Therefore, I need your
utmost support and understanding to actualize this dream. I also want
you to understand that I do trust you and I expect you to show me the
same trust and respect in return since trust is a 2-way street.

On the other hand, trust is a relationship of reliance. Trust also
means being able to predict what other people will do and what
situations will occur. Trust is both an emotional and logical act.
Emotionally, it is where you expose your vulnerabilities to people,
but believing they will not take advantage of your openness.
Logically, it is where you have assessed the probabilities of gain and
loss, calculating expected utility based on hard performance data,and
concluded that the person in question will behave in a predictable
manner.

In practice, trust is a bit of both. I trust you because I have
experienced your trustworthiness by merely believing in what I have
said, even when you have not seen me, and because I have faith in
human nature. Frankly speaking, I understand that anyone in your shoes
will feel betrayed, but I still want you to show me your trust by
giving me the benefit of doubt on this delivery arrangement. My
identity and personality is verifiable, and I promise to deliver the
consignment to you safely without any hitch. Please do not allow this
mission to die off because the registration fee of your Consignment
Trunk Box which is $87 US Dollars, I meant so well for you and I
believe you will appreciate me more when you have finally received
your partial payment of $15,500.000.00 US Dollars upon my arrival with
the package at your nominated address.

I will use my position and personality to deposit the $15,500.000.00
USD into your bank account without questioning from the financial
monitoring authorities, since all documentations proving the
legitimacy of the funds has been processed. Please don't see me as one
of the numerous dubious Benin republic you have dealt with in the
past. I am a different person entirely and I come from a different
continent. I have the American spirit in me and I hate cheaters. I
promise to always uphold the national unity of the United State.
Please reply back ASAP and let me know your possibility of sending the
$87 US Dollars.

You can send it Western Union or Money Gram with below information,
please copy the name correctly outline below to avoid mistake.
