US Ambassador to Benin
7 mambilla street off aso drive maitama district,
My name is James l Knight, the United States Ambassador to the Federal Republic of benin republic. The United States Senate had confirmed my nomination on August 30. 2009 after being nominated for this position by U.S. President Barack Obama on June 28, 2010. My credentials as the new Ambassador appointed were presented to His Excellency Yayi Boni at the Presidential Villa in Cotonou, Benin Republic, 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 Benin Republic, West 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 Université de Haute Bretagne in Rennes, 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: http://cotonou.usembassy.gov/bio.html
However, following the resolution of the meeting held with His Excellency President Yayi Boni at the Presidential Villa in cotonou.yesterday with some members of the Federal House of Senate, an agreement was reached that the sum of $1,500.000.00 USD must be paid out to you in the form of a compensation for all you have waisted in waiting for your funds to be released. Hence, the ($1,500.000.00 USD) compensation fund has been instructed to be paid out to you in the form of a CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL BANK DRAFT drawn on Barclays Bank London/USA/CANADA. 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 2 days since it would be sent via a Postal Mail Service.
Meanwhile, a "Custom I.R.S" must be obtained from the Benin Customs Authourity at a fee of $89 USD for a full clearance certification on the BANK DRAFT. Hence, the $89 dollar fee must be paid within 24 hours upon your receipt of this notification via western union or MoneyGram, so that all neccessary arrangement can be made ahead of time. The fee should be sent directly to the"Embassy Protocol Officer" with the below information:
Receiver Name:--------------- Udeanyinyi Lawrence
Text Q --------------- Urgent
Please take note that the "I.R.S" and the BANK DRAFT will be packaged together inside the U.S Embassy Official Envelope for immediate despatch to your mailing address. Hence, you are advised to comply as requested to enable me discharge my official duty to your home accordingly.
