 From Mrs Marie Benson.

Dear Respectful One,

Greetings to you and your family in the name of God.

Please use this money for the churches and less privileged.

In my search for a reliable and God fearing person and
having gotten your contact through prayers and painstaking
efforts I have decided to seek your help in carrying out my
last wishes. My name is  Mrs. Marie Benson.

I'm a 65 years old woman and from Philippine. I was a
merchant and owned two businesses in Dubai. I was also
married with two children.

My husband and two children died in a car accident six years
ago. Before this happened, my business and concern for
making money was all I live for. I never really cared about
other values in life. But since the loss of my family, I
have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I have
been helping orphans in orphanage/motherless homes.

I have also donated some money for humanitarian needs in
Sudan, South Africa, Cameroon, Brazil, Spain, Austria,
Germany and some Asian countries. Only recently I saw on
television the colossal loss of properties and livelihood
people in Canberra, Australia through fire.

I was moving with great pity and compassion that I decided
to make this contribution on assisting people over there, I
kept $US15,000,000.00  (One Hundred and Fifty  Million
Thousand U.S Dollars),  into a metallic trunk box, in a
Finance company, in abidjan the capital city of cote d'
ivoire west africa.

This money which is concealed in a metallic trunk box
(consignment)  is deposited with a security and finance
company in abidjan the capital city of Cote d' ivoire under
a secret arrangement as a family treasure not as money due
to security reason and also due to postion.

I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for
oesophagi cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and
my doctors have told me that I have only few months to live.
It is my last wish to see this money distributed to victims
of the fire outbreak in Australia and other charity

Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my
wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony
entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.
Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the
deposit and  distributes it accordingly.

Use your judgment to distribute the money and keep 5% of it
to yourself.
Feel free to reimburse yourself when you have the money for
any cost you incur during the process of collecting and
distributing the money. If you are willing to help, please
reply as soon as possible. May the good lord bless you and
your family.

Please, i will advice you to send reply and all
correspondences mail to my attorney (Lawyer) who going to
work with the finance company in abidjan cote d' ivoire for
the claiming of this metallic trunk box (consignment) from
the custody of the finance company before the finance
company will finally shippment this metallic trunk box
(consignment)  down to your door post in your country.

Mr i will like you to contact and introduce your self to my
attorney (Lawyer) and informed he that you are the new
beneficiary of this said metallic trunk box (consignment)
in their custody containing the family treasure and also ask
him to help you and, tell you the mode of the operation of
the finance company before they finally shippment this
immediate metallic trunk box (consignment) down to your door
post in your country.





Thanks yours faithfully,

Mrs Marie Benson
