Probably they are beginners who send this mail from Benin. The phone number can be fake and the email address is not very cleverly chosen. But it is an evergreen, especially in Corona times, to rip off Europeans. The parcel from Benin has to be paid, the lawyer who has to handle all the papers. If you deal with scammers from Africa, you will always come across this specific mail in different amounts and constellations, which is supposed to cost 20US$ for scammer stories "at the bazaar". The addresses and passport numbers that the scammers collect from the answers are sold for expensive money. 50 US$ is the least per name and set. The culprits use it for other crimes such as Human trafficking and drug smuggling.
So, don't answer and move the scammers' fairy tale right into the digital dustbin.
