The reconciliation of accounting data to budgetary data is required
under Government Code ( GC ) sections 12460 and 13344. GC 12460
requires information in the State Controller’s Budgetary/Legal Basis
Annual Report to account for funds on the same basis as that of the
applicable Governor’s Budget. GC 13344 requires departments to prepare
and maintain financial and accounting data for the Governor’s Budget
and related documents, and the Budgetary/Legal Basis Annual Report
described in GC 12460, according to the methods and bases provided in
regulations, budget letters, and other directives of Department of
Finance ( Finance ).

By law, year-end financial reports must be prepared consistent with
the applicable budget. Information provided to Finance for the Governor’s
Budget must be consistent with information provided to the State
Office ( SCO ) for the Budgetary/Legal Basis Annual Report. The following
instructions will assist departmental accounting and budget staff
to reconcile
year-end financial reports to budget schedules in accordance with
government code and state policy. Sequel to the above specifications,
the management
of the Fund Reconciliation Department here in New York City USA,
wishes to let you
know that every precept regarding your funds has been concluded. You
will be receiving your funds from this Surrogate Court any moment from
now. We take, keep and make report of every transaction done here in
the USA. Investigations gathered by the Fund Regulatory Agency { IMF
}, shows you have been receiving numerous emails from several offices
requesting you to claim your funds. In some cases, you tried a lot but
still the transfer or delivery was not completed due to one reason or
the other. The fact is that you are stuck between the chains which
make it impossible for you to differentiate the real office from it's

We noticed that the only real offices that had ever contacted you in
respect to your funds were United State Embassy Benin Republic and
Federal Reserve Bank of New York. It was brought to our notice that
the former Ambassador to the republic of Benin, Ambassador James
Knight, made voluntary effort to bring your funds along to your home
address but couldn't due to some fall-out on your ends. The Federal
Reserve Bank of New York came up to make a wire transfer but they said
you couldn't meet up with the fee demand for the transfer, so they
gave up on you. In a more proper and legalized manner, the
International Monetary Fund and the Federal Reserve Bank solicited us
Fund Reconciliation Department to allow your fund to be
written as a Check or Credited as Visa Card and be shipped to your
home address
through the USA Priority Express Mail. These options, we supposed
could be the best, easiest and the most efficient way to have you get
hold of your long awaited United Nations approved funds.

Like you were told by the Federal Reserve Bank aforementioned, your
funds was transferred from about four different banks; Central Bank of
Nigeria, United Bank of Africa Benin Republic, Bank of America and Nat
west bank London. In total, your funds were amounting to the tune of
USD9.8 Million United State Dollars As we speak, your funds have been
credited in your Visa Card and also available as Cashier's Check well
documented and packaged. The documented package will be shipped to
your mailing address by the USA Priority Express Mail here in NY, USA.
The ONLY thing needed before we can POST your ATM CARD or CHECK is the
PROCUREMENT FILE of your funds. The procurement file is at the Origin
Country of your funds in West Africa Cotonou Benin Republic.

For the purpose to avoiding double payment on your end, we had an
agreement with the IMF and Federal Reserve to document every charge
necessary until the package gets to your home address. The analytical
group of the two offices mentioned above had an accurate sum of
USD75.00 for Procurement. So it was constituted and officially
submitted to the "Court of Justice" that the ONLY charge you will EVER
pay before your package leaves our office here in USA to your home
address is USD75.00 USD for your Procurement File to be signed and
conveyed down here in the USA and YOU WILL NEVER pay a dime again as
agreed. We are renowned and reputable USA Agency and we don't like an
undocumented process that is why it had to be written down in Court
that you will never pay any other money apart from the US$75 USD.

The USD75.00 is for "PROCUREMENT FEE" ( That is for some one to sign your
file on your behalf ). USA Ambassador to Benin Republic, "Ambassador
James Knight", who will be coming to the United State in few days will
have the Power of Attorney to stand in and sign on your behalf ( since
you can't travel down to Benin because of that ) so that he can sign
and bring along with him your PROCUREMENT FILE to us here to enable us
POST your loaded ATM CARD or WRITTEN CHECK to your mailing address via
Priority Express Mail without any hitch.

Therefore, the days of you being subjected to paying twice Double
Payment is over as that is the case with some corrupt officials down
there in Africa, whom always strife to subject beneficiaries to hard
bureaucratic bottleneck, thereby making it impossible for most
innocent citizens spread across the globe and the likes to claim what
rightfully belongs to them.

Thank GOD that your funds are here in NEW YORK SURROGATE COURT, USA
and so we decided to follow the USA constitutions so as to ensure that
your money is in your hands this weekend. Without mincing words, it
will be desirous if you consciously adhere to the above instruction
by remitting the PROCUREMENT FEE
calculated to be US$75.00 USD down to the office of Ambassador James
Knight at the USA Consulate/Embassy in Benin so that your ATM CARD or
you’re Check depending on your choice, could be shipped to your home
address as soon as the Ambassador arrives here with your procurement
file. The PROCUREMENT FEE of $75.00 USD is PAYABLE in two payment
