My Friend,
This is Larry Johnson writing to you once again, Thank you for the assistance rendered to me when I was really in need, it is a thing of joy to inform you that finally, I have succeeded in collecting the money at Long last. Hope this mail find you in an excellent condition of health. I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the co-operation of a new partner from London UK. Presently I'm in JAPAN for investment projects with my own share of the total sum.
Meanwhile I didn't forget you're past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds that later failed some how, I have
compensated you with the sum of $1.5M, One million five hundred thousand dollars. Now contact Barrister Peter Hills my lawyer in Ghana and his email address is :( ask him to send the money to you the sum of $1.5, One million five hundred thousand dollars which I kept for your compensation for all your past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter.
I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touch with him and instruct him where to send the amount to you. Please do let me know immediately if you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the sufferings at that time.

I'm very busy here WITH MY STUDIES and the investment projects, which the new partner and me are having at hand. This Money, I have left it for you to Barrister Hills, I have tried many times to talk to you on phone but you could not respond and I have no time for myself because we are very busy now.
You can still reach me as soon as you receive the money.
