Letter 1

My dearest love Todd,

how is going with you my darling ? i am fine filled with lot of excitements and butterflies flying in my stomach when i heard the news that all my papers are ready and i have them now . Love ! i could not even eat been so happy and excited it was like a party when i spread the news at home every one was so happy for me , all i think of is being with you right now , i cant wait to show you how much i care Hun , been at the immigration traveling office for my papers and ticket today which i already bought bellow is my flight details so you will know when i will be coming so you come and pick me at the airport my love .

My love , about the cheque we talked about on line yesterday i think i really need your help now , the lady explained it all to me today why i needed the travelers cheque . Hun ! i don't have much money left with me , the little i have that was saved and borrowed is the money i wanted to use in celebrating a send off party and thanks giving here before leaving , but now i don't think i will have to celebrate that with friends and family any more because i will
need the travelers cheque, but the money is not enough and i cant raise more, may be you could help with the little i have so i can get the travelers check .

I will need a travelers cheque as a traveler my love . The cheque is a requirement to travel to any foreign land from your own.It is supposed to cover your living expenses while you are gone and the amount of the travelers cheque depends on how long you are to stay even if invited by any or not . Every NON American or EU first time traveler are entitled to it,It also applies to every first time traveler to Europe .

She explained that it is one way the govt. regulates the foreign exchange rate, because on the black market one can take a foreign currencies and usually get 25% more CFA then govt offers on the dollar for example the country you are going to usually has an amount you must show you have with you or available to live on. Beninoise are free to purchase fixed amounts of foreign currency through authorized banks, for a basic personal travel allowance, which sales must be made in travelers' cheques or foreign-currency notes.

The applicants are required to complete a detailed questionnaire designed by the banque centrale de la R?ublique du B?in (central bank of Republic of Benin).... By demanding such details as annual income (travelers cheque), itinerary, flight ticket, duration of trip, past and future trips for the year, and an assessment of how the trip will benefit the economy (if traveling for business purpose), the questionnaire is clearly meant to serve as a disincentive to large and repeated demands for foreign exchange.

Travelers cheque is limited to allowances of between 3,500 USD to 5,000 USD depending on lenght of stay and travel. The Republic of Benin Money Laundering Decree of 1995 requires financial institutions to report any singular forex transaction that exceeds 5,000 USD for individuals and 10,000 USD for corporate business organizations to the Agency d'application de loi nationale (National Law Enforcement Agency) and the
Commission de sujets ?onomiques et financiers (Economic and financial matters commission).

The OECD-led Financial Action Task Force has deemed this law inevitable, branded Republic of Benin as co- operative in the fight against money laundering and citizen welfare abroad. In other words what we are saying is that the travelers cheque is very necessary for all first time travelers to Europe and other countries. I will not be allowed to go through the immigration post without the travelers cheque.The travelers check is normally money that is converted in to cheque,which i will show the immigration officers at the Airport in COO International Airport,France International and on .

The travelers check is a check put on all first time travelers to other countries by the Government.It is made to tackle the high rate of people that have intentions of not coming back and also the problem of citizens that get stranded in other countries due to lack of funds.It is a government policy to put a check on Human trafficking , prostitution and terrorism.

My love i will need to have in my procession a minimum of 3500 USD and a maximum of 5000 USD ,which i will convert into a travelers check. In most cases funds like this are not meant to be spent by the traveler since they will be picked up by the person that invites you ,It allows one gets through the immigration checks,therefore acting as a pass at the Airport. My love i am broke and i don't have much with me for the travelers check i have little money saved for my send-off party which will not be enough and the party will not hold any more because i will need the money for my cheque, Hun i will need the money so soon so i can transfer the funds into a cheque today or tomorrow before my departure time.

I have about 1300$ with me so i need 2200$ more to arrange for my travellers cheque , beloow is my flight details my love .
