Embassy Employee?
I have been contacted by a gentleman named Samuel Adili whom is supposed to be an employee of the US Embassy in your country. Could you please tell me if he is or not?

To Earl McNees
That was not an embassy employee, just someone in an internet cafe in Africa sending emails. If an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

scam
I was scammed by one of your female Diplomats. She is 25 years old. She said she came to the U.S. to bring me 3 boxes of gifts for me. I paid money to clear her through customs at Dulles airport in D,D. and said she then flew to Nashville airport in Nashville Tn. Said she needed $2800 to clear the boxes again I wired $$3700 to an account. Said she didn't get the money. Probably to a friend. She never did get to our farm. I am out a total of $5600 on her and never did get to see her or the boxes. I can give her name and accomplish in Benin also who was her helper in transferring the money.
Action should be taken on her immediately to prevent others from being scammed.
