Rating: Bizarre email - Well first off the grammar in this is atrocious. I will not go into specifics, but geez.
Then there is the problem with the "Consignment Box" which Fed Ex has apparently turned over to the STATE Department?? That is not how things work and again I WILL NOT detail what the proper agencies would be.
Then there is the problem of the Email addresses.. DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE that the US Embassy has to have a Yahoo Mail address much less one with the Eposta.co.ke extension?
OK, you did not order anything from BENIN, I am guessing, and you are not stupid so why would you want to send this moron $195.00 of your hard earned money. Then there is the address problem.. and the fact that the US Embassy is asking you to send them money in BENIN... Duh.. the address is in DC???
But the Government wants you to send it to the Embassy in Benin?
U.S. Department of State
