FBI always sounds good
Well, in this scam everything is mixed up, departments mixed up, countries and subject areas. You can see what a proper research would bring…but the scammers have taken over. Yes, the only goal is to cut the fee for the package with the respective carriers.
That doesn’t work any more, the trick is done by fax from Nigeria, since 1994(!).
Back then, the scammers wrote the same crap on a pitifully forged letterhead from the United Nations.
Therefore: Do not reply, do not send any documents. Do not send any money, a parcel would never reach you, this nonsense does not exist. The aforementioned organizations have had their identities stolen. Move the mail to the digital dustbin.
For the scammers:

Ref: Your Long Overdue Compensation Fund
We the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have received a report from the
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) demanding explanations for the delay
of your overdue compensation fund payment approved by the United Nations
Compensation Commission (UNCC) and we have investigated this case only to
find out that you’ve been ignorantly having illegal financial dealings
with some online perpetrators who have taken advantage of your legitimate
transaction in our custody in order to siphon your hard earned money.
Moreover, the investigation report suggested that you have furnished your
personal data to the perpetrators and we assume you must have sponsored
the release of this fund but all to no avail; however there is no cause
for alarm as the investigation has also proved that you have no hand in

the World Bank Group to monitor your compensation fund remittance at the
valuation of $5,500,000.00 (Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars) only which will be released to you by the nominated bank.
Paramount, we advise that you STOP all dealings involving any sort of
financial support to corrupt individuals posing to be from financial
institutions in order to avoid any form of jeopardy in your compensation
fund release process and be rest assured that you are now dealing with the
