My good friend i got your email when i was searching for a
reliable partner whom i can trust in this transaction. I am Mr. Bola Johnson
but now undergoing medical treatment in the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
I was married for thirty years without a child. my wife died after a brief illness that lasted for two weeks. I vow to look for a partner whom i can trust and do business with. Since the doctor had confirmed my situation that I will not live long, I have decided to look for a God fearing person.
Presently the sum of $3million (Three Million dollars) is in a Vault with a Bank and all the required document to claim this funds are in my possession. This money is still there. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next 150 days due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.
I want an individual that will use this fund and provide
succor to poor and indigent persons, orphanages, and above all those affected
in the Tsunami in far Asia and the Hurricane Katrina Disasters and the recent
I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Almighty Allah. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the presence of my Relatives around me always. I do not want them to know about this development. With Allah all things are possible. My most fear is that if this fund is not channeled to charity now before my death, the bank can discover the fund and convert it to Government treasury, i will not allow such to happen and that is the reason i want the fund to go to the less privileged instead of going to the Government pocket. I want you to always pray for me. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Whosoever that wants to serve the almighty Allah must serve him with all his heart and mind and soul and also in truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for an individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act according to my specification herein. As soon as i hear from you, i will send to you all the relevant documents regarding to this transaction for your perusal.
Hoping to hear from you. Via (email@example.com)
Thank you and may the Almighty Allah bless you.
Mr. Bola Johnson
