Dear Friend.

I am Revd. Fr. Thomas Douglas, 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 the 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. 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 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 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. 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 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 expert 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 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 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 wait for your response Feel free to call me if you will like

us to discuses more on this TEL: +221 4183317.

Yours Faithfully
Revd. Fr. Thomas Douglas
Director, Special Duties. UNO/WBF
