Dear Friend,
      I am Pastor Harold Peters I saw your profile in one of the web. Concerning the thing that I want to talk to you about This is something about a girl whose name is Anita. Her parents died on a very ghastly and fatal motor accident. The father of this Anita is a very rich and wealthy man but he has no son his daughter Anita would not inherit his property according to the tradition of the people in their area. Which states that a girl cannot inherit the wealth of her father only the male child can, but this man has no son.
So the uncles of this girl now take all the possessions of the late man and push the girl out. She is now with me. This girl being an artful lady secured the money his father dropped in the bank ($3.3m US dollars.)Which her wicked uncles knew not about. So the problem we have is if you can help us by concurring and accepting our request to send the money to your account. Once this is done we will come over there, on behalf of Anita and have the money shared. And do know that we are ready to give you 20% of the total fund once the money is secured through you.
So if you are willing to help us, please mail me immediately at: (
I need your name, age, sex, location, occupation, and telephone number.
May God Bless you abundantly.
Pastor Harold Peters.
