Hello,

I am Mr Scott Wood(JP), am a 49 years old widower, and I live in Merseyside. I am a goods merchant, 
I have several industrial companies and a good amount of shares in various banks in the world. I 
spent all my life investments on co-operate businesses. Along the way I lost my wife and two 
beautiful kids in a fatal accident that occurred on the 5Th of November 2003.
 
Sometime in the year February 2004 I got a letter which contained the result of my previous medical 
check-up, and my personal doctor testified that I have lungs cancer, which can easily take my life. 
I found it uneasy to survive myself, because a lot of investment cannot be run and managed by me 
again.
 
I have decided to distribute my wealth to the motherless babies or orphanage homes, people that 
need money to survive both students that need money, business women and men for their investment 
for future rising.
 
I would like to offer help since I am in the position to do so. Like  you know there are so many 
people on the Internet who are waiting to  rip other people off. I have helped some people recently 
and they ended up being liars. I would put you to test and see how sincere you are.. I would 
instruct my financier to issue a check payment of $2,000 in your name and I would like you to have 
10% of the money which is $200 for yourself for your efforts, then you would have to send the 
balance of $1800 to any orphanage home in your Country.
 
As soon as you can follow my directives, i could support you between the range of $5,000 to $50,000
 
First I need to build trust in you, and I see this as the only way I can do that. If you think you 
still need my help, then send the following details as follows:
 
FULL NAME:
CONTACT ADDRESS(NO P.O.BOX PLEASE)
PHONE NUMBER:
AGE:
OCCUPATION: 
 
NOTE: THE CHECK WOULD BE SENT OUT TO YOU NEXT WEEK
 
Thanks for your understanding.
God bless You.
Mr Scott Wood(JP).
