    Attention: Consignee,

    I am Mr. Brooke Jansen Port Director, U.S Customs and Border Protection. We just intercepted/confiscated one (1) briefcase at the Indianapolis International Airport Indiana. We are on the verge of moving this briefcase to the U.S Customs headquarters. However, we scanned the said box and found out that it contained a total of USD$3.3M. Investigation carried out on the Diplomat who accompanied this briefcase into the United States, revealed that he was to make the delivery of the fund to your residence, as these funds are entitled to you, been Contract/Inheritance over due payments. The funds were from the office of the CBN Governor Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, Federal Republic of Nigeria.

    Furthermore, after cross checking all the information we found in the briefcase indicating you are truly the beneficiary of the funds, it became known to us that one of the documents is missing. This document is very important and until we get the document, the briefcase will be temporarily confiscated pending when you will provide it. The much needed document is the Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Delivery Certificate (DISDC). This document will protect you from going against the US Patriot Act Section 314a and Section 314b. This delivery will be tagged A Diplomatic Transit Payment (D.T.P) once you get the document.

    You are therefore required to get back to this office within 72 hours to enable us guide you on how to get the needed document. Failure to comply with these directives may lead to permanent confiscation of the funds and possible arrest for money laundering. We may also get the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) involved if you do not follow our instructions. You are also advised not to get in contact with any Bank in Africa, Europe or any other institution, as your funds are here now in the United States of America.

    Sincerely Yours,
    Mr. Brooke Jansen
    Port Director

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
