This is an old, fill in the blanks, style scam. The one blank that no scammer ever fills in is in the first sentence. “I have been waiting for you since —– to contact me”. No-one ever fills in since “when”.
Are you expecting a bank draft from Benin? I’ll bet that you aren’t. Neither am I. This scammer is just hoping you will be daft enough to send him the $50 he asks for. If you do, he will ask you to send him even more money.
