Greetings from Mrs. Suzy Shaw Reply to this Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 sickness. 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.
