 Dear Friend.

 I am Rev. Fr. David Clark, a senior staff with the UN special duties office,my office monitors and 
controls the affairs of all banks and financial institutions.
 I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these 
accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced sum 
etc; I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions among others i received days ago 
from the 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 US$10 million.The (Ten 
Million Dollars) is been arranged in a security-proof box weighing 75kg. In order to get the box 
shipped to you.
 As I found out that you have almost met all the statutory requirements in respect of your pending 
payment. The problems 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 you 
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,the(CSO)and i 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.For security reasons We told the courier company that the box contained film 
materials and when open will spoil the materials. <Note> we did not declare money because courier 
does not carry money.
 Today a friend of mine who is a diplomat disclosed to me that there is a security courier service 
company that is specialized in sending diplomatic materials and information from one country to 
another, which also has diplomatic immunity on 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 
approval. The diplomat who will be bringing in this consignment to you is an expert and has been in 
this line of work for many years now so we have Nothing 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 lik!
 e the box to be delivered to by the 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 to inform 
anyone about this until you received your money. Am helping you on this because i want to be able 
help the innocent young helpless African children and something in me is tells me that you are an 
honest person. When you conclude this and fufill the agreement, we will help to ship the final part 
of your money to you.
 May God be with you as i await your response. Feel free to call me if you will like us to discuses 
 Yours Faithfully,
Revd. Fr. David Clark.
Director, Special Duties.UN/WBF.
