Dear Friend,
GREETINGS FROM THE UK HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT

This might startle you a little as you might have seen or read about me but really don’t know me in 
person. Well, I am Rt. Hon Margaret Hodge MP. A British politician and Labour Party Member of 
Parliament for Banking. I was the first Minister for Children appointed in a newly created post 
with the Department for Education and Skills and presently Minister of State in the Department for 
culture, Media and Sport under Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom.

I got your contact info via your country’s national directory and intend introducing a project 
concerning charity in your country and maybe neighbouring countries around you.

A few months ago, I was compelled to make an over estimation during a budget and set aside the sum 
of Six Million Three Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds
(Ј6, 300,000.00GBP) with the sole intention of channeling it all into charity which I am  
delegating you to executed on my behalf with complete supervision of my Attorney as he will also be 
the one in charge of securing these funds into your custody.

This transaction will result to you being paid a commission of 11% of the investment capital and 
the balance, distributed to charity organizations of your choice or reinvested and the net income, 
used for rehabilitating
charity organization in and around your country through you/your agency annually for the period of 
five years or a little more. The last time I orchestrated this sort of Grant, the individual in 
Australia succeeded in
successfully setting up three standard orphanage homes in less than a year. I have never been so 
proud of such a noble individual. I hope we would have a reoccurrence in your case. If you are 
willing to execute this Humanitarian Project, You must understand that I desire absolute 
confidentiality and professionalism on this issue.
For security reasons as regards my reputation, I will not be able to communicate regularly with 
you; but my Attorney will take up the processing on my behalf and get these funds processed and 
released to you without any delay.
I don’t plan on benefiting anything from this project, but will be absolutely fulfilled, if and 
only if you remain sincere to me on the handling of this project with utmost sincerity and 
confidentiality; and eventually utilize the funds for the purpose which I have explained to you 
above.
Kindly respond urgently if you are interested as the fund have been tied down for too long, so I 
can equip you with the necessary details, alongside my Attorney’s contact information, so as to 
commence the transaction properly; on the other hand, if you are not, please let your intentions be 
known or better still, Kindly relent from replying this email.

You could get personal info on me via my official website, but do not try contacting me via any 
personal information you may lay your hands upon on the internet as almost all my contact info are 
connected to the British House of Parliament data base except the ones I personally sent to you; as 
I don’t want our effort and my reputation, jeopardized.

Kindly send your response to this E-mail: rthmargarethodgemp@live.com

Sincerely,

THE RT. HON MARGARET HODGE
DEPARTMENT FOR WORK AND PENSIONS,
RICHMOND HOUSE, 79 WHITEHALL,
HOUSE OF COMMONS, SW1A 0AA
