Through his secretary Mrs. Jenafur Owoh Chidi, I sent to him $50 to which he would add $70 to complete the cost of legalization fee from the Justice Ministry which is required by the Royal Security Company's Operations Director, Dr. Mamoudu Kone, based in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Such legalization documents is required before a so-called box is released. Nothing happened later.

I have called the F.B.I. before and they do not, REPEAT THEY DO NOT EMAIL THE GENERAL PUBLIC FOR ANYTHING, ABOUT ANYTHING.. This is a scam and a hoax. Just someone else trying to make money off the hard work you have done getting your rightful money. By any means do not send anything or call that number. So everyone take a long breath and know that the head of the F.B.I. Robert Mueller wouldn't take time out to email every one of us. no way shape or form.
