My Dear Friend.

How are you today? And compliment of the season to you.

It's been long I heard from you. Well, I just want to use this medium 

to thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in 

receiving the funds, without any positive outcome. I am obliged to inform you 

that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new 

partner from Australia.

Everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the 

men accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and 

he rendered a tremendous help to us. 

My new partner initiated this idea and everything worked out 

successfully. In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the 


I have decided to compensate you with the sum of $350.000.00 (Three 

Hundred And Fifty Thousand US Dollars) This is from my own share, i did 

this simply to show you that it is good to do good things to the right 

people always.

Presently, I am in Australia for investment project with my own share 

under the advice of my partner. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past 

efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that 

it failed us somehow,  i will be sending you e-mail from time to time 

to know if you have received your share or not. 

Now contact my personal secretary in London.

Here     his contact address:

Name:  Rev Frank Das


Direct  Tel: +44-7 0 2 4 0 8 3 8 9 2

please do let me know immediately if you receive it so that we can 

share the joy together after all the suffering at that time. In the moment, 

I am very busy here in Australia because of the investment projects, 

which the new partner and I are having at hand. So feel free to get in 

touch with   Rev Frank Das to send the money to you without any delay.

 Best Regard,


I wait for your reply

Engineer John Micheal
