Dear sir,

Please i am very sorry to intrude in your privacy,I have a proposal for you, however it is not 
mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will.

I am Steve Wems i will be very brief but before I will beg to ask you a few questions,do you have 
the fear of God in you,do you have human sympathy for the less fortunate victims of disasters like 
tsunami and hurricane katrina and lately hurricane rita that left a lot of people homeless and dead.

I am an orphan at the moment and my father was a cocoa farmer and he got killed but before he died, 
he confided in me that he had two trunk boxes containing a certain amount of money and family 
valuables for security reasons,I will not state the amount now deposited with a reliable security 
firm which has its headquaters in europe, he told me that he did not declare the contents of the 
trunk boxes to the firm.

He gave me vital documents containing important security codes related to the deposit and he told 
the firm that it belonged to his foreign business counterpart who will come at a later date for the 

He cautioned me to look for a trustworthy and God fearing man or woman who will stand in as his 
foreign business partner and assist me secure this funds.

He asked me to give back 10% tithe back to the church as instructed in Malachi Chapter 3 Verses 10.

He asked me not to depart from the word of God,he asked me to make sure that i become a pastor 
which has been my heart desire.

I am only 22 now and these challenge is much on me. I needed a gaurdian, however i contacted one 
American by name mr Mathews Graham who happens to be a nice person to me.

He has visited the company here in Abidjan, Ivory Coast to see things himself and he was happy for 
all the operations manager told him concerning the consignment.

He travelled back to New Orleans on a holiday trip promising to come back  to Abidjan Ivory Coast 
to pay what the company told him to pay as outstanding debt incurred during the storage time and 
find a safe way to lift the box without any hitch.

He informed me on 15/08/2005 indicating that he had paid the security company outstanding debt of 
67 000 us dollars for them to cargo the boxes through diplomatic courier service.

I tried to reach him on 29/08/2005 to let him know that the company had cashed the money and is 
ready to shift the consignment in the next 72 hours only to hear the shock of my life that Mr 
Graham was among the people who died on the
recent hurrican katrina disaster,a category 5 storm which struck a catastrophic blow at the gulf 
coast driving walls of water across the city's leevees flooding
New Orleans, destroying homes.

Immediately i got the news i stopped the security firm from shifting the consignment until further 

In fact all i want you to do is to write me back urgently immediately you receive this message 
indicating your interest to help me out of this problem.

Fate has not treated me well,i have lost people that are dear to me,please i am in need of your 
urgent aid Reverend. I hope this proposal meets your kind approval.

Best regards

Steve Wems
