Greetings from Mrs. Suzy Shaw 
Reply to this Email address: 

After going through your profile over the Internet, I decided to contact you 
personally for an urgent assistance that requires utmost trust. As a matter 
of fact I was pleased with the bit of information I gathered about you, but 
when we shall proceed further, I will confirm if you are kind enough to take 
care of my trouble or whether to search for another person for the 
assistance because this relationship is all about trustworthy. I know that 
my proposal will come to you as a surprise based on the fact that we have 
seen each other neither in person nor by correspondence for the first time, 
but I am assuring you that I am real and my proposal to you is quite genuine 
and legal. 

I believe that every good relationship starts from one day. My name is Mrs. 
Suzy Shaw the wife of late Mr. Robert Shaw, I am a British citizen, with a 
son (David) who is now 14 years old. My late husband was an independent oil 
and Gas Distributor before he died; I am 39 years old, suffering from a 
deadly disease (heart problem) which has completely destroyed my kidney and 
some part of my liver. My doctor reports that I will not survive the 

I have two reasons why I am contacting you, first I want you to receive my 
only son David in your Country and protect him in your family as your own 
son. Secondly I want to transfer the sum of 900,000.00 British Pounds (Nine 
Hundred Thousand British Pounds) to your personal bank account in your 
country to enable you invest the money in any good business there in your 
country so that you and your family will benefit from the money and then you 
will take proper care of my only son (David) I so much love my only son 
David, he means the whole world to me and I will not like him to suffer at 
all in this world. 

Even as I am going to join my ancestors any moment from now, I promise 
always to be with my only son David Spiritually. Please promise me that 
David my only son will not suffer in your family if this fund is been 
transferred to your control. This is the only favour you can do me and God 
will bless you and your family greatly. You have nothing to fear about 
because the fund was legitimately made by my late husband. 

My late husband deposited this money in a bank on the 11th day of December 
2006 for an investment purpose before he died and since then the fund has 
being in the bank because I intended to use the fund in setting David up in 
Business when, but due to my Brother in-law's recent demand for the deposit 
Certificate of the fund, I have decided to transfer the fund to your 
personal bank account and then my lawyer will bring David over to your 
country for security of his life. I know fully well that if I hand David 
over to any of my relatives or friends living within here in London, 
definitely my brother in-law must attack David's life out of hatred, this is 
why I decided to contact you for this assignment and I promise you that God 
will always protect you and your family for saving the life of my son. 

I don't know how my brother in-law got the information that my late husband 
deposited the sum of 900,000.00 British Pound in a bank, I believe is one of 
the bank’s officials who knows me that would reveal such a secret 
information to my brother in-law. He called me recently and was asking for 
the deposit Certificate of the fund, which is the only security I have over 
the money, but I refused to give him the deposit Certificate because the 
fund is my only son's hope for survival, Look at me a widow who has been 
destined to die within a very short period of time, how would a little boy 
of 14 years survive without Mother and Father? 

 He is just threatening to kill both David and myself, he is having all 
these powers over me simply because he belongs to a special mafia group, 
whose work is assassination. I have thought of calling the police or 
involving the government, but my lawyer suggests that I should first of all 
secure my son’s life and the fund secretly without having any case with a 
Murderer, a man that has no conscience, a man that has no regard for 
people’s lives. I am working completely under my lawyer’s directives. We 
have succeeded in hiding our selves in a hospital where I am currently taken 
medical treatment. 

Please let me know urgently if you can assist me or not. 

God Bless you, 
Mrs. Suzy.
