I am Revd. Fr. Mark Phillips, a senior staff with the World Bank fact finding & special duties 
office. I am writing you this letter based on the fact that cool penny is better than millions of 
dollars means,it's better for one to live and die poor honest man than a rich dishonest one.

I and the Chief security officer (CSO) of this organisation have arranged with an officer in the 
computer section in person of Engineer Peter Cliff to bring out part of your total pending payment 
with reference number (LM-05-371) amounting to US$10 million (Ten Million United States Dollars). 
Why we did this is because according to information gathered from the bank’s/security computer, you 
have been waiting for a long time to receive this payment without success. As I found out that you 
have almost met all the statutory requirements in respect of your pending payment. The problem we 
feel you are having is that of interest groups. A lot of people are interested in your payment and 
those people are merely doing paper works with you and that explains why you receive different 
kinds of untrue fax and phone messages from different people everyday. Also we found out that some 
of the officials of the parastatals have been extorting a lot of money from y!
 ou with the pretext of helping you receive your money. I can assure you this will keep happening 
if you do not do away with those officers. For security reasons you do not have to tell anybody 
that your have your payment on the way until the payment gets to you.

The said payment is been arranged in a security-proof box weighing 75kg. In order to get this box 
shipped to you I and the (CSO) Yesterday went to this four courier companies Dhl, Ems, FedEx and 
Ups to make arrangements on how to get the box shipped to you by courier, but to no avail the above 
courier companies all made us to understand that they will have to open the box for inspection by 
the customs before shipment. This is something we want to avoid because this box is been padded 
with synthetic nylon and to open it you will have to cut the pad before you will meet the button 
that you will press to open the dial code-lock. There is no way you can open the box and be able to 
close it again because it was padded with machine. We told the courier services that the box 
contained film materials and when open will spoil the materials. <N: B> we did not declare money 
because courier does not carry money.

Today a friend of mine who is diplomat disclosed to me that there is a security courier service 
company that is specialised in sending diplomatic materials and information from one country to 
another, which also has diplomatic immunity and consignment such as this cannot be checked by any 
customs anywhere in the world. I have therefore met the official of the security courier service 
and concluded shipping arrangement with them, which they will commence as soon as I have your go 
ahead order. The diplomat who will be bring in this consignment to you is an expact and has been in 
this line of work for many years now so we have Notting to worry about. After all arrangements we 
have concluded that you must donate Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars (US$500,000.00) to 
any charity organisation I designate as soon as you receive your money. To this effect, you will 
send to us a promissory note for the donation along with your address where you will like!
  the box to be delivered to by courier. Please maintain topmost secrecy as it may cause a lot of 
problems if found out that we are using this way to help you. You are advised not inform anyone 
about this until you received your money. Am helping you on this because something in me is tells 
me that you are an honest person. When you conclude this and you send our promise, we will help to 
ship the final part of your money to you.

May God be with you as i await for your response either Via fax or email:
