Dear Beloved, 

I am  Nelson Godswill, a senior staff with the World 
Bank fact finding & special duties office. I am writing you this letter 
because cool penny is better than millions of dollars. It is better for 
one to live and die poor honest man than a rich dishonest one.

I and 
the chief security officer (CSO) of this organization have arranged 
with an officer in computer section engineer Peter Cliff to bring out 
part of your total pending payment sum amounting to US$18 million.Why 
we did this is because according to information gathered from the bankâ
s/security computer, you have been waiting for a long time to receive 
your money without success. As I found out that you have almost met all 
the statutory requirements in respect of your pending payment, your 
problem 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 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 that this 
may last for years yet nothing happens if you do not do away with those 
officers that you call your partners. 

And for security reasons do not 
tell anybody that you have your money until you receive cash at your 

The money is in a security-proof box weighing 82kg.Yesterday 
we went to four courier companies to make arrangements on how to ship 
them by courier to you.Dhl, Ems, FedEx, Ups all said that they must 
open the boxes for inspection by the customs before shipment.

This is 
something we want to avoid because the box is padded with synthetic 
nylon and to open it, you 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.

A friend of 
mine who is diplomat disclosed to me that there is a security courier 
service they use to send diplomatic materials and information from one 
country to another. It has diplomatic immunity and consignment cannot 
be checked by any customs anywhere in the world. 

I have spoken to the 
officials 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 will help me so we do not have any 

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 us a promissory note for Five Hundred Thousand United States 
dollars (US$500,000.00) along with your address for sending the box by 

Please maintain topmost secrecy as it may cause a lot of 
problems if found out that we are using this way to help you,Do not 
ever tell anybody about this until you have your money. 

I want to 
help you because something in me is telling 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.

God be with us as we wait 
for your reply on email address:

Please do 
not fail to call.

Yours faithfully,

 Nelson Godswill
