Dear Friend,
I am Mrs. Elaine Clara Wood the wife of Mr. Philip Wood who died along with other passengers on board MH370 Malaysia, i contacted you asking for your partnership in re-profiling funds worth $5.6m dollars.) Your sincere co-operation is anticipated and I shall furnish you with the details and procedures, since the death of my husband, the family decided to push me out due to my husband and i invested alot into our company, right now they have taken over everything and left me with nothing not knowing that above amount is in my account.
For this reason, you will be rewarded with 35% of the total sum for your partnership. Can you handle this?
All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above mentioned sum and I will re-profile the funds with your data, which will enable the financial firm transfer the sum to you. I have decided to use this sum to relocate to your country and never to be connected to any of my late husband family anymore since they are after my life, presently I am in London, for a hideout.
The transaction has to be concluded as soon and as I confirm your readiness to proceed with me, I will provide you with details.
Thank you very much.
Mrs. Elaine Clara Wood
