Greetings from Mrs. Rebecca Johnson 

Dear friend, 

After going through your profile, I decided to contact you personally for an 
urgent business relationship that requires trust. As a matter of fact I was 
pleased with the bit of information I gathered about you which disclosed you 
as quite an honest person that one can trust without doubt in a business of 
this magnitude. I know that my proposal might come as a surprise to you 
based on the fact that we have not 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 has nothing illegal attached to it. 
I believe that every good relationship starts one day. My name is Mrs. 
Rebecca Johnson the wife of late Mr. Robert Johnson, am a British citizen, 
with two kids. My late husband was an independent oil and Gas marketer 
before he died; I am 42 years old, and suffering from a deadly disease 
(heart problem). That has totally injured all my system. My doctor reports 
that I will not last for a long time from now as the sickness has refused 
all forms of medication it keeps getting from bad to worst day after day. 

My reason of contacting you is to seek for your urgent assistance in order 
to use your contact to achieve my objectives. I decided to transfer the sum 
of (US$ 9.6, 000,000.00) Nine Million Six Hundred Thousand United State 
Dollars to any reliable foreign account for safe keeping. My late husband 
deposited this money in a bank in Europe on November 7th 2002 for investment 
purpose before he died. But my fear is that I don’t have any strong 
relationship/person abroad that I can confidently trust in this transaction 
and now the bank ethics is that any account that is dormant for the period 
of five years will be recovered/ confiscated by the National Economic and 
Financial Recovering Authority (NEFRA) as an abandoned account. Recently the 
bank sent a notification letter to me as the beneficiary of the fund but 
there’s no way I can travel out from here based on my health condition and 
the crisis I am having with my brother’s-in-law who sized my international 
passport immediately after my husband was buried on September 11th 2005 

 My brother's in-law invited me for a family meeting that lasted for about 
three hrs and at the end they requested that I should hand over to them all 
the documents of my late husbands assets and I did exactly as they demanded, 
Now they want to take away from me the money that my husband left which is 
the only hope of our living. ‘Me’ as a widow will suffer with my kids if I 
do. Therefore I am contacting you to seek for your urgent support and 
assistant in order to claim those funds from the bank and transfer to any 
reliable account that you will provide. Please contact me through my 
personal email address via I will give you 
more details as soon as I confirm your interest and readiness to work with 
me in this project so that we can talk about your commission though I 
personally decided to give 25% of the whole sum for your assistance. Thanks 
and God bless you as I wait for your positive responds. 

Sincerely yours
