Dear friend,
I am revered Peter Gabriel, with Saint Monica catholic church, I was called to pray for engr Tom Compos by the doctor, Who is in a hospital here in England, he is the director, project implementation with the British - America - Africa Petroleum’s with refinery in Niger Delta. He made a confession that in august 2006, (Engr Tom compos) received gratification of fifteen million, five hundred thousand us dollars (USD 15,500,000) from the contract awarded to foreign firms for the construction and maintenance of gas plant at Warri refinery in Niger Delta. Valued at (USD750 Million) (LNG).
Hence, the fund is under the custody of a security company for safe keeping, he begged to locate his family and to seek assistance from a worthy foreign company or an individual who could help to provide a bank account where the money will be transferred for investment without hitch in his confession at the St Monica Catholic Church London. Since by the time he would be going back to Nigeria from united kingdom the money might be confiscated by a new government  by some international Fund Transfer Surveilance or the Financial Action Task Force owed to elections of new government and new policy systems.
However, he said he was willing to give 30% of the total sum to you while 5% for expenses. Therefore, if this offer is acceptable to you, contact me immediately through my e-mail ( for further briefing. As you know i am a Rev Father in charge of a Parish and will not deal directly on this issue but i will pray and seek the help of the Bishop of my Diocese to ensure a hitch free transfer within days. He wants you to also keep this secretly, may the Good Lord bless and keep you, in the name of the father, son and and the Holy Ghost.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Yours faithfully,
Rev Father Peter Gabriel.
