Dear Friend,

Calvary Greetings.

I am a preacher with the Seed Harvest Ministry, and I will like to get advice from you. I believe the advice I need is secular to some extent, but do have the patience to understand my intention.

A few year's ago I was in Liberia where I had established a little congregation where I preached regularly, but the civil war escaleted and the church was converted to a hospital of sourghts. On one faith full day three Nigerian Soldiers came to me and left trunks of Money with me and swore to come back for it.

When the war in Liberia intensified I deposited this box in a security vault in Togo, I was escorted to Togo by the ECOMOG soliers who felt the content of the trunks were documents and never cared to check the trunks, I was air lifted to England with other refugees then, I  stayed in England and when I was getting fraustrated I returned to Africa only to find out that two of the three Soldiers died in Battle while the last was decleared MIA (Missing in Action).

Now I have the fund which the soldiers said was over thirty million dollars, but it lies in a security vault in a Security Company in Togo, and I was contacted in a letter dated 12th of September by the security company asking me to indicate if I was in reciept of the letter as a sign that I am living and still subscribed for their service.

I am interested in using a small fraction of this money, much less than one percent for a re organisation of the work, but I do not need the rest and do not want to have any direct dealing with it, but I need someone who will be able to use the fund better maybe for charity or something universally profitable, I have thought of doing it my self but, my ministry is the apocalypse and I believe and preach the soon comming of the Lord which make me not indulgent in reliance on money or wealth in any form.

I also do not have the money that has accrued on the service and safe deposit of the company that holds the fund, I will be glad if you have any interest in the direction of maybe managing or transmitting the fund as you prefer in your capacity and understanding.

I will be glad to get a response from you ASAP.
 
Regards.
Pastor Patrick Udo.

We wrote "John Waters", expressing my confusion. Here is our note to him and his response.

Hello John:

I am a wee bit confused. I was trusting you enough to begin considering the possibility of working with you on this transaction. But I just received an email from a man, Pastor Patrick Udo posing as the pastor of your church, using almost the exact same story as yours. Please educate me. I am waiting to hear from you. I was beginning to trust you and was trying to think of ways we could be of help to you..
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Dear Brother,
Autine Udo is my secretary, i gave him the go ahead to look for some else since you do not want to assist because time is of great essence in this transaction but if you are ready to work with me we can proceed and stop communicating with him.
God Bless,
REVD JOHN WALTER.

And later...

Dear xxxxxxxx,
I did sent you a mail today please get back and let me know if you are still intrested in this transaction.
God Bless,
REVD JOHN WALTER.

Dear Brother/Sister's in Lord Christ Jesus.

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am former Mr Ali  rasaq,now Mr Christian James,I am now a new  Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the lungs. From all indications, my condition is really deteriorating and is quite obvious that I may not live more than  six months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe stage. My Wife and our only son was assasinated in a cold blood on the 15th of June  2005.Well my late Wife was very wealthy and after her death, I inherited all her  business and wealth, and now that i am very sick and my only Son is died. And my  personal physician told me that I may not live for more than six months due to  the fact that the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe stage, and i am  so scared about this, well i know our Lord almighty is in control of everything. So, I now decided to divide part of our wealth, by contributing to the  development of evangelism in Africa, America, Europe and Asian Countries.

This  mission which will no doubt be tasking had made me to recenlty relocated to  Israel,where I live presently. I selected your church after visiting the website for this purpose and prayed over it and i got your email ID through email online in your Church, So now i am willing to donate the sum of $19.500,000.00 Million US Dollars to your Church/Ministry for the development of evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you.Please note that, this fund is lying in a Security Company in Europe and the company has branches, therefore my lawyer will file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in the name of your ministry.

Please, do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use other than enhancement of evangelism.Lastly, I want you/your ministry to be praying for me as regards my entire life and my health because I have come to find out since my spiritual birth lately that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life is vanity upon vanity. If you have to die says the keep fit and i will
give you the crown of life. May theGrace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the sweet fellowship of  the Holy Spirit be with you. If your are interested do reach my Attorney he lives in Paris,France.

His Particulars are
Name :Advocat Allan Pear.

Thanks for your assistance
Yours in Christ,
MR CHRISTIAN JAMES.

Tony Chris used to be stingy, but now he wants to be generous. Very Touching...

Dear friend,
As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because,In Believe everyone will die someday.
My name is Tony Chris, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been diagnosed with lung cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business .

Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world .I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so,

I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan; they refused and kept the money to themselves .Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them.

The last of my money, which no one knows of, is the huge cash deposit of Ten million US dollarUS$10,000,000), that I have with a security company abroad. Acknowledge this mail so that I can introduce you to my lawyer who will handle the transfer of receivership by you of the said funds. I will want you to help me collect this deposit cash and use it for charity organizations only, contact me on this email address christony02@yahoo.com
Thanks God be with you
CHRIS TONY.

Deacon Steve Ade is working his scam from the Redeemed Pillar Fire Ministry

Dear Brother in Christ,

Thanks for your response and your willingness to this great call of God to do His work. I am Deacon Steve Ade, married to my lovely wife Elizabeth, i have three children and five grand children, we all worship in redeemed pillar fire ministry. I know you are surprised to receive my mail but remember the bible says, the blessing of God comes supernaturally and it is through Devine favor.

After i received instruction from God to use this funds to do His work, i prayed to God for direction and he has been directing me. I told God that i want a ministry, an honest man who will spend the fund for things that will glorify His name. I came across your address in the internet as i was browsing through a Christian site, i took interest in your ministry, i fasted and prayed Over it and the spirit of God directed me to sow in your ministry. 

This revelation came after my conversion from a Muslim to a christian. I received Christ and i found out that a sinner has no place in the kingdom of God. I never had rest of mind, i seeked God for
forgiveness and he revealed to me that i will only have rest of mind if i serve him with all i have and he will bless be mightily is hence received Christ that i realized the meaning of going to heaven. I need to make heaven, i donít want to perish in hell fire. As my level of Christianity was increasing, i understood that the wealth of sinners are acquired for the just. God opened my eyes to the book of Ecclesiastes 6,verses 1 & 2. Read this scripture and you will understand that there are people in this world that God gave the grace to acquire wealth yet God did not give them the grace to enjoy the wealth. I happened to fall into the same category now it is the wish of God.

When God revealed to me to use my wealth to do His work, i understood that God was testing me like he tested Abraham and other men of God. Abraham needed children and God asked him to use his only son for sacrifice, Abraham was faithful. he obeyed and God made him father of many nations.

I have decided to sow 70% out of the total sum into your ministry, the Remaining 30% i will invest into any Christian related business in your country.

This fund, ($13.6,million us) is in security company here in Nigeria. This security company, Omar world wide finance and security company, in collaboration with "diplomatic Express courier services" helps in the shipment of valuable goods out of the country through a diplomatic means, hereby the fund packaged in consignment and delivered to the recipient. I would have used a wire transfer but due to a memo set by the finance minister to the central bank of Nigeria to forward all foreign payment file to his office for vetting, this you will agree with me will not favor us that was why i choose to use this diplomatic, process to send  this funds out of the country in order to avoid unnecessary questions either from my Govít or from your own Government.

Bro, we need to move this funds out of this country within a short period of time from now, i will need you to immediately send me the particulars i requested from you, your full name, your full address, your telephone and fax numbers.

The funds is already packaged in consignments and ready for shipment, these informationís is required by the security company so that they will start up all the necessary process on how the funds will get to you. Be informed that as soon as this funds is in your possession, i and my family will be joining you in your country. I WILL APRECIATE IF YOU CAN CALL ME ON THIS NUMBER 234-80 330 17316 OR 234 1 7762289 SO THAT WE CAN SPEAK PERSON TO PERSON.I WILL AWAIT YOUR
URGENT RESPONSE.

REMAIN BLESSED.

DEACON STEVE.

APPEAL FOR FOUND:
 
Dearest brethren in Christ, I am pastor Joel Kennedy. Insight Bible Church in London. On one of my program in Africa/Nigeria, Theme: Empowering Men With Insight For Excellence" I came across a miraculous work of God. I saw "two babies joined together from lower abdomen. They were born premature and under the care of Doctor. This I have not seen in my entire life, the most surprise thing is that they are alive and their mother also alive but still in pains of the surgery she went through for the babies. I wonder how they are able to stay alive till date. It was a miraculous work of God.

After the crusade, I came back to London and the Lord review to me in revelation. God spoke about those children which I saw in Nigeria and He said those "babies are special babies" and God also instructed me to reach out to all Churches and individuals for this life saving offering for the children. He live in the Children and every penny you give stand as a collateral for your breakthrough in business, in life, in everything you ever ask from God and also stand for your set free from Sickness in your entire life and He will bless you abundantly. says the Lord. This is the question God has asked me to ask you all brethren in Christ. If He was to open the door of heaven and ask you brethren to give him the Lord all you belongings wouldn't you have given Him all your have?
 
So brothers and sisters in Christ, this is what the Lord has asked me to tell you. so please don't let it came to you as a sounding gyms, let's give as much as we can to save the lives of these wonderful children of God.We are not taxing you for certian amouth but from what you have send across to the use for surgery they are undertking. They are placed under a solid able care of the same Doctor with the help of few individuals support whom God has touched their heart to help the babies to this stage. We can do likewise so that they can undergo for medical surgery that will cost eight thousand Dollars ($8, 000.00) There after they can be free individuals like we are. Please note that the donations are not going to the few individuals or the father of the children. But to save the lives of the little babies.

Deacon/Brother Mike Ojesu also has his "Divinely-Inspired" story to share...
...from the same Redeemed Pillar Fire Ministry, with waaaaaaaaay more cash!

DEAR IN CHRIST,

CALVARY GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. I AM MR. MIKE OJESU,A MEMBER OF REDEEMED PILLER FIRE MINISTRY. BASICALLY A PRAYER AND DELIVERANCE MINISTRY.

DURING A PRAYER AND FASTING SESSION IN MY MINISTRY I DEMANDED FROM OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO REDEEM MY LIFE AND PURIFY WHAT REMAINS OF MY WEALTH. GOD DELIVELY REVEALED TO ME TO INVEST IN HIS KINGDOM THROUGH YOU AND YOUR MINISTRY /CHARITY ORGANISATION. YOU SHOULD IMMIDIATLY CONTACT ME WITH MY E-MAIL ADDRESS. THE WAY JESUS MINISTERED TO ME, THE FUNDS WILL BE EXPANDED.

REMAIN BLESSED.
BROTHER MIKE O.

And here's Mike's response to an initial inquiry...

DEAR IN CHRIST,
THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE AND YOUR WILLINGNESS TO THIS GREAT CALL OF GOD TO DO HIS WORK. I AM A MAN OF 64YEARS OF AGE AND I AM MARRIED TO MY LOVELY WIFE ELIZERBETH
(Elizabeth must be very busy at this church!), I HAVE THREE CHILDREN AND FIVE GRAND CHILDREN, WE ALL WORSHIP IN VICTORIOUS ARMY MINISTRY. I KNOW YOU WILL BE SUPRISED TO RECEIVE MY MAIL BUT REMEMBER THE BIBLE SAYS, THE BLESSING OF GOD COMES SUPERNATURALY AND IT IS THROUGH DEVINE FAVOUR. 

AFTER I RECEIVED  INSTRUCTION FROM GOD TO USE THIS FUNDS TO DO HIS WORK, I PRAYED TO GOD FOR DIRECTION AND HE HAS BEEN DIRECTING ME.I TOLD GOD THAT I WANT A MINISTRY, AN HONEST MAN WHO WILL SPEND THE FUND FOR THINGS THAT WILL GLORIFY HIS NAME. I CAME ACCROSS YOUR ADDRESS IN THE INTERNET AS I WAS BROWSING THROUGH A CHRISTIAN SITE,I TOOK INTEREST IN YOUR MINISTRY, I FASTED AND PRAYED OVER IT AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD DIRECTED ME TO SOW IN YOUR MINISTRY. 

THIS REVELATION CAME AFTER MY CONVERTION FROM A MUSLIM TO A CHRISTAIN.I RECEIVED CHRIST AND I FOUND OUT THAT A SINNER HAS NO PLACE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.I NEVER HAD REST OF MIND, I SEEKED GOD FOR FORGIVENESS AND HE REVEALED TO ME THAT I WILL ONLY HAVE REST OF MIND IF I SERVE HIM WITH ALL I HAVE AND HE WILL BLESS BE MIGTHILLY IS HENCE RECIVED CHRIST THAT I REALISED THE MEANING OF GOING TO HEAVEN.I NEED TO MAKE HEAVEN,I DONT WANT TO PERRISH IN HELL FIRE. AS MY LEVEL OF CHRISTAINITY WAS INCREASING,I UNDERSTOOD THAT THE WEALTH OF SINNERS ARE ACQUIRED FOR THE JUST.GOD OPENED MY EYES TO THE BOOK OF ECLESIASTES 6,VERSES 1&2.READTHIS SCRIPTURE AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD THAT GOD GAVE THE GRACE TO ACQUIRE WEALTH YET GOD DID NOT GIVE THEM THE GRACE TO ENJOY THE WEALTH.I HAPPENED TO FALL INTO THE SAME CATHEORY NOW IT IS HE WISH OF GOD. 

WHEN GOD REVEALED TO ME TO USE MY WEALTH TO DO HIS WORK,I UNDERSTOOD THAT GOD WAS TESTING ME LIKE HE TESTED ABRAHAM AND OTHER MEN OF GOD.ABRAHAM NEEDED CHILDREN AND GOD ASKED HIM TO USE HIS ONLY SON FOR SACRIFICE, ABRAHAM WAS FAITHFUL.HE OBEYED AND GOD MADE HIM FATHER OF MANY NATIONS.  

I HAVE DECIDED TO SOW 70% OUT OF THE TOTAL SUM INTO YOUR MINISTRY, THE REMAINING 30% I WILL INVEST INTO ANY CHRISTIAN RELATED BUSINESS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

THIS FUND, THIS FUND ($45,MILLION USD) (He has waaaay more money than the other two!) IS IN SECURITY COMPANY HERE IN NIGERIA.THIS SECURITY COMPANY, OMAR WORLD WIDE FINANCE AND SECURITY COMPANY, IN COLABORATION WITH "DIPLOMATIC EXPRESS COURIER SERVICES" HELPS IN THE SHIPMENT OF VALUABLE GOODS OUT OF THE COUNTRY THROUGH A DIPLMATIC MEANS, HEREBY THE FUND PACKAGED IN CONSIGNMENT AND  DELIVERED TO THE RECIPIENT. THEY HAVE AFILIATE OFFICES ALL OVER EUROPE AND AMERICA , AND ASIA.

I WOULD HAVE USED A WIRE TRANSFER BUT DUE TO A MEMO SET BY THE FINANCE MINISTER TO THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA TO FORWARD ALL FOREIGN PAYMENT FILE TO HIS OFFICE FOR VERTING, THIS YOU WILL AGREE WITH ME WILL NOT FAVOUR US THAT WAS WHY I CHOOSED TO USE THIS DIPLOMATIC, PROCESS TO SEND THIS FUNDS OUT OF THE COUNTRY IN ORDER TO AVOID UNNECESSARY QUESTIONS OR RAISING OF EYE BROWS EITHER FROM MY GOV OR FROM YOUR OWN GOVERNMENT. 

BRO, WE NEED TO MOVE THIS FUNDS OUT OF THIS COUNTRY WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME FROM NOW, I WILL NEED YOU TO IMMEDIATELY SEND ME THE PATICULARS I REQUESTED FROM YOU, YOUR FULL NAME YOUR FULL ADRESS YOUR TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS. 

THE FUNDS IS ALREADY PACKAGED IN CONSIGNMENTS AND READY FOR SHIPEMENT, THESE INFORMATIONS IS REQUIRED BY THE SECURITY COMPANY SO THAT THEY WILL START UP ALL THE NECESSARY PROCESS ON HOW THE FUNDS WILL GET TO YOU. BE INFORMED THAT AS SOON AS THIS FUNDS IS IN YOUR POSESSION, I AND MY FAMILY WILL BE JOINING YOU IN YOUR COUNTRY. I WILL APRECIATE IF YOU CAN CALL ME ON THIS NUMBER 234-80 330 59706 (Wait, he has the same telephone number as the previous two scam artists!) SO THAT WE CAN SPEAK PERSON TO PERSON.I WILL AWAIT YOUR URGENT RESPONSE.

REMAIN BLESSED.
DEACON MIKE

My late husband was killed during the Gulf war, and during the period of our marriage we had a son who was also killed in a cold blood during the Gulf war. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. My personal physician told me that I may not live for more than six months and I am so scared about this. So, I now decided to divide part of this wealth, by contributing to the development of evangelism in Africa, America, Europe and Asian Countries. This mission which will no doubt be tasking had made me to recently relocated to Nigeria, Africa where I live presently. I selected your church after visiting the website for this purpose and prayed over it, I am willing to donate the sum of $10.000,000.00 Million US Dollars to your  Church/ Ministry for the development of evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you. 

Please note that, this fund is lying (the truest word in this entire letter!) in a Security Company in Switzerland and the company has branches, therefore my lawyer will file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in the name of your ministry. Please, do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use other than enhancement of evangelism.

Lastly, I want you/your ministry to be praying for me as regards my entire life and my health because I have come to find out since my spiritual birth lately that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life is vanity upon vanity. If you have to die says the Lord, keep fit and I will give you the crown of life.

May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you. I await your urgent reply. 

Yours in Christ,
Mrs Grace Ojo
Kaduna, Nigeria.

Still another scamster, with breast cancer and a husband who was killed during the Gulf War, using religion for personal gain...this letter has some similarities to the previous letter

Beloved in Christ,

I am former Mrs. Fatimo Aisha Alamin and now Mrs. Christiana Alamin. A widow to late Sheik Mohammed Alamin.

I am 64 years old and now a Christian convert suffering from long time cancer of the breast in which my doctor has advised that I am not guaranteed to live more than the next six months due to the bad state of my health. My late husband was killed during the gulf war and throughout his lifetime our marriage was blessed with only one child, who is presently in Dubai (U.A.E).

I inherited all my husband wealth, which I intend to bequeath part of it as a contribution to the development of churches in the World over and help my only child.

Your church was selected along with other churches to benefit in this charity work of mine, in which I will donate the sum of $2million (Two Million United State Dollars Only) for the development of your church and for the less Privileged.

The $2million (Two Million United State Dollars) in question is in a security company in Dubai which after due consultation with my Attorney, He will make arrangements with the Security Company in Dubai on how to claim the consignment. 

You will travel to Dubai to secure this money from the security vault to your country.

Lastly I honestly hope that this money when transferred will be used for the purpose it is meant for. I know now that wealth without Christ is vanity upon vanity and if you have to die say the Lord, keep fit and I will give you the Crown of Life.

May the grace of the lord and fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you, please, make sure you liaise with my Attorney instructions, because I have given the power of attorney to my son because of my bad state of Health. 

Please, I will implore you and other brethrens to pray to God Almighty to grant me more time here on earth. I await your urgent reply.

I Remain.
Mrs. Christiana Alamin (Most scam artists are male. They will use female names to somehow be perceived as more vulnerable and non-threatening. We'd almost be willing to bet that Christiana is a man.)

The recipient of the above letter wrote John Igho. Here's their letter to Pastor John.

Greetings!
 
 I am sorry to hear of the reported ill health of a MRS ELIZABETH YUSUFU. I trust she is in good care. I confess, that I am rather surprised that you, Mr. John Igho would have my email address as you are not on my email list. As to your addressing the distribution on funds on behalf of Mrs.Yusufu, who I presume is still with as per you email... are you aware that I am not in Africa?! How did you actually come by my name?

Pastor John's response -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear beloveth in Jesus christ,

Greetings to you in the name of our lord and Saviour Jesus christ who lives and reigns forever.

First of all, i would like to know where your faith lies. If you remember, it was written in the holy bible that when our Lord and saviour Jesus christ comes for the second time for his people, he will come like a thief in the night. So also, when he wants to do something wonderful in our lives, it will also be by suprise. You do not have to be suprised regarding this donation because God is using this woman as an instrument for the motivation of his works here on earth.

So many other ministries and individuals have received tremendous donations from her as well as myself. I am currently embarking on a project with my own share of what she has offered my ministry. We have started raising up a building here in Nigeria where we will have a charity home for the less privilledge and the handicaps, also, a school for the infants where they will be thought the word of God and eventually end up being ministers of the word of God.

I am not responsible for the list of individuals and organisations that will receive donations from her but due to the fact that i converted her into christianity and our closeness, she mandated me to get in touch with all the benefactors and the list was then handed over to me.

Before i can go ahead to release this fund to you, i would want you to reassure me that if it gets to you, it will be used for the actual purpose which it was meant for .

Till i hear from you, blessings all over.

Deacon Adamu Solomon wants to get rid of $25 Million for your church

Beloved in Christ, 

It is a priviledge to hear from God and it gives me joy to relate my testimony to you haven recieved instruction from God through divine revelation.I was a Moslem and a retired military top officer in Nigerian Army that served under the past military regime. I was the financial secretary to the Armed Force Ruling Council (AFRC). With my position as a financial secretary, I was able to divert up to  $25,000,000.00 (Twenty Five million U.S Dollars, into my personal Bank Account, hoping to invest the money when I am retired.Immediately I got retired, I was converted from Moslem to Christian when I was preached the words of God through my cousin Pastor PAUL MUSA.  I then gave my life to Christ and became a born again Christain. 

Since I gave my life to Christ, I had no rest of mind. Some times I think of the souls I killed when I was a soldier and the dubious ways I diverted my countrys money into my Personal Bank Account. I then decided to seek the face of God for forgiveness and after fasting and prayer through Divine Revelation, the Almighty God revealed to me that the only way  I could have rest of mind is when I used all my money to do the work of God. I immediately disclosed my revelation to my Pastor and he was happy with me. I have been thinking of the particular thing to do for  my God before this present civilian president of my country set up a panel (Honourable Oputa Panel) to probe the Bank Account of the past Military officers like me. Instead of loosing this money to my Government, I quickly withdrew my money out of my Account and deposited the money in a finance and security company for safety. My Pastor (We have never met a pastor who could have used some of the money for his own ministry. Would love to meet this man.) has adviced me to sow this money into a ministries work abroad . I have decided to sow this money into your ministry (How do you know?). I am making arrangement to come over to your country but you need to receive this money from the finance and security company in cash before I come over. 

The cash has been packaged by the security company in consignments and ready for shipment but the security company requires the address of the receiver. Please send to me your names, address and your telefax number where I can fax the Airway Bill to you to claim the consignment over there. 

I will be coming over to your ministry with my family for thanks giving as soon as I sent out this money to you. Please actfast because I dont want the panel to know that I want to leave the country, they might suspect my intention to leave now that the probe is going on. 

I look forward to your response God bless you.

Princess, a "Female university student

Good day and Compliments, 

I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my 
family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly. My family and I are true Christians and 
worship's God truthfully. I got your contact through Internet during my research on some one who could help us. 

I am a female student from University of Nigeria, Lagos. I am 22 yrs old. I'd like any person who can be caring, loving and home oriented. I will love to have a long-term relationship with you and to know more about you. I would like to build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me in this transaction. 

Well, my father died earlier two months ago and left my mother I and my junior brother behind. He was a king, which our town citizens titled him before his death. I was a Princess to him and I and my brother are the only people who can take Care of his wealth now because my mother is not literate enough to know all my father's wealth he left behind. 

He left up to USD$27, 350, 000.00 dollars (TWENTY SEVEN MILLION, THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND US DOLLARS) with a security company, and I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my consent because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town. That is why I felt happy when I saw your contact which I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me secure and invest this money. I thereby need your help in bringing the box contaning the money out from the security company, based on your reply I will furnish you with more details on how we can proceed. 

I am ready to pay 20% of the total amount to you if you help us in securing this money and another 10% interest of Annual Income to you, for handling this business for us, which you will strongly have 
absolute control over. 

If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund, kindly reach me and I will let you know the next step to take towards actualizing this transaction as quickly as possible. 

Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free. I look forward hearing from you soonest. 

Yours sincerely, princess

"Anne" uses her vulnerable situation to her advantage.

From: Mrs. Anne Kojo (99.999% guaranteed that "Anne" is a man. Shocker.)

Dear Sir,

With due respect and humility I write you this letter which I believe you would be of great assistance to my children and me.

I got your contact through my husband commercial address book and believed that you must be a trust worthy and reliable person that will not like to intimidate me or betray my trust (Notice how "Anne" sets up "her" awkwardness and vulnerability for the scam right from the beginning. This is the first step in making the potential victim feel protective of "her", which means that she has a greater chance of receiving money from the victim...all part of the confidence game) after hearing this news. I am a native of KONOBO in the KEREMA local district of SIERRA LEONE in West Africa and the wife of Late DR. MUNDI A. KOJO who was assassinated by the rebel forced loyal to Major John Paul Koromah because he was the Director General National Gold and Diamond Mining Corporation of Sierra Leone. Few days before my husband was assassinated, he instructed me and my children (Ibrahim and Amina) to move out of Sierra Leone immediately, before the powerful Economic community of West African States (ECOMOG) forces intervened, which eventually resulted into a brutal civil war. My children and I managed to escape to Republic of Lome (Togo), through the help of my husbandís friend. We came into Republic of Lome (Togo), with some valuables including a cash sum of $25MILLION (TWENTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY) in two trunks boxes which I have deposited with a Trust Company here in Republic of Lome (Togo) and special arrangement has been made with the currier company who will freight the money to your country.

Meanwhile, I want to leave Togo entirely with this money for investment in your country because of a stable political situation there and mostly for the future of my children. I want you to please assist us to claim this fund from the Trust Company, after which the fund will be deposited into your account for investment in your country. You should also help us to source for good investment opportunity so that we can invest wisely in your country when the fund is finally confirmed in your account.

We have it in mind to reward you handsomely for your assistance as we have resolved to give you 20% of the total sum for your help. But due to how I am being monitored by the Sierra Leonean Government Secret Agents, I will advice you to have the deal concluded with my son who is presently in London for this purpose. Please contact my son (Here is the tip-off that a man has generated this email. A man will pose as her son.) on this emails: ibrahimkojo@email.com / ibrahim@mailbox.as, Fax: 442079002816 immediately you receive this letter to enable us proceed in earnest towards retrieving the consignments and transferring same into your account.

"Grace Williams" has $10 Million

From Grace Williams.
Atten.My Lordship,

Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am former Mrs Fatima Usman Adamu,now Mrs Grace Williams,a widom to late Sanni Usman Adamu.

I am 74 years old, I am now a new Christian convert suffering from long time cancer of the breast and from all indications that my condition is really deteriorating and is quite obvious that I won't live more than six months because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

My Late husband was killed during the Gulf war and at that period of our marriage, we could'nt produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth.

The doctor has advised me that I may not leave for more than six months so I now decided to divide part of this wealth and to contribute to the development of the church in Africa, America, Europe and Asian countries.

The mission which will no doubt be tasking had made me to relocate to Nigeria in Africa where I leave presently. I selected your church after visiting the website and prayed over it. I am willing to donate the sum of $10.000,000.00 Million US Dollars to your Ministry for the development of your Church and also for the less priviledged.

Please note that the fund is lying in a Security Company in Europe, therefore my lawyer will file an
application for the transfer of the money in the name of your Ministry.

Lastly, I honestly pray that this money when transfered to your account, will be used for the said purpose because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ is Vanity upon Vanity.

If you have to die says the Lord, keep fit and I will give you the crown of life. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God and the Full fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you.

I wait your urgent response,
Yours in Christ.
Grace Williams.

FROM: PRINCE JONAH  --   URGENT AND TOP SECRET
INVESTMENT PROPOSAL IN YOUR COUNTRY/COMPANY
Dear Sir, I am writing this proposal to you with tears and grief in my heart. I know this mail may come to you as a surprise but don't worry, I prayed over and over and also fasted for God's direction toward providing somebody for me whom I can trust in order to secure my money abroad.

I am 28 years of old, the only son of late Chief DIYALA JONAH, the former minister of Petroluem of Sierra Leone. He was also the personal confidant of the war lord SERGENT FODAY SANKOH, the rebel leader who is presently in detention in my country.

My father died after the rebel struck our mansion and gave my father several beatings left with some bullet wounds in his body. Before my father's death he deposited one(1) Iron box containing the total sum of USD$21.5 Millions (Twenty One Million, Five Hundred United States Dollars Only) into a security company here in Abidjan - Ivory Coast West Africa, where I am now with my sister seeking political asylum. Be informed that my late father did not disclose the real contents of the box to the officials in the security company. He my late father make them to believe that it is an African Arts works beloging to his foreign partner who will later come for the clearing. So right now, the security company does not know that the box contains money and they do not know my father's partner.

My late father handed over the whole documents concerning the deposited trunk box which the security company issued to him on the very day he make the deposit to me.

Because of our ignorance in the business world I want you to make urgent arragnement to visit me here for just 3 working days so that we can withdraw the consignment and transfer the whole money into your nominated account in your country.

I have agreed with my sister to give you 20% of the total amount for your kind assistance in this

transaction such as: bank taxes, flight ticket, telephone bills, hotel accommodation, feeding and
others, while 75% will be for my family investment in your country and you will be the general overseers of the whole investment.

Dear in Christ,
I am in anticipation of your reply and I am standing on Malachi 3:10 where our GOD decreed that we should bring tithes and offering to his store house, he convinced us that he will open the windows of heavens and bless us most abudantly. I an a retired Director general of Ministry of aviation and transport and presently the managing director of Solomon consultancy firm and Solomon foundation Inc not until last two years I was practically in the world. Due largely to the counseling of my wife and by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ I confessed Jesus as my personal Lord and saviour and I became a member Redeemed pillar fire ministry and the man of God Pastor Ellias counseled me for deliverance which I did for a period of 30 days, for God said in Obadiah 1:17, that upon mountain Zion there will be deliverance, after which holiness and one can posses his possessions that already I have claimed as my portion.

During my thanksgiving that proceedeth prayer session in my ministry, our Lord ministered to me concerning my funds in Europe to invest it in your ministry and I proceed to posses my possessions. I related with the Elders of my ministry and Pastors of my ministry to direct me. Five names and ministries were nominated and we all prayed for God's divine confirmation which he did at the third/3rd day. Already all arrangements have been concluded with the security house in Europe for the direct payment of the funds $21.6 million us dollars to you. All you need do is to furnish me with your full names, address, Telephone & Fax numbers in order to appropriate the document with the central bank of Nigeria (C. B. N) clearing house in Europe for onward payment to you. Then I will be able to confirm to you Brother in Lord the code access number to contact the central Bank of Nigeria Clearing House for the fund.I thank God for his Grace upon my life and for making me to know our Lord Jesus Christ, Glory be to God. Be informed that this fund is strictly for the work of God and other investment that will Glorify God. You can call me on my phone number 2348033440855 for further discussion.

ATTN: THE GENERAL OVERSEER: -
Dearly Beloved, 

Grace to you and peace from God our father and Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Father of mercies and God of all comforter who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any needs, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows [james1: 17}. In perfect faithfulness He has done marvelous things, thing planned long ago. [lsaiah 25: 1] The book of life tells me that he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Those who hope in him will not be disappointed. [Isaiah 49:23] "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him". 

It is superfluous for me to write to you personally, so that we can all be committed to the cause in finishing this Everlasting gospel that Christ's appearance will be hastened. And also tell about the importance of giving cheerfully, He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. I purposes in my heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver and I know God is able to make all grace, abound towards me, as in {2
Corinthians 9:6-8}. Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches {Galatians 6:6} let us do well to all especially to those who are of the household of faith. When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive and gave gifts to manĒ (One Church many parts).

Ambassador Deacon Fernandez is my name. I am the U. N. permanent representative in the Central African Republic. Through the goodness of Lord Almighty I own some of my business in these area. I have course to be glad for these goodness to my person and have decided to testify His goodness by dedicating a token sum of Two Million, Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars ($2.5m US Dollars) for propagating the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, through you or your ministry. If it will be of any assistance to you or your ministry, by being a channel or vessel for a miracle in other people lives, please inform me soonest. So that we can arrange these donation to you. {Hebrew 6} tells me to be faithful because God is faithful: {verse 10} tells me that for God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward his names in that you have ministered to the saints. Brethren, I fear God and l intend to keep my vow. ďWhen you make a vow to God do not delay to pay it; for He has no pleasure in fools; pay what you have vowed - better not to vow than to vow and not pay {Ecclesiastics 5:4-5}.

l fellowship in a church where Christ is our center, the Bible our base, and the People our Priority. After a seasoned prayers and fasting recently especially as the Lord performed many miracles in our lives, in saving us from the hands of the enemies, The story would have been different today as the devil unleash his angles to kill us, during the rebels insurgents in Banjul this year. In this season of thanksgiving and dedication, l have purpose to use the remaining part of my life for His works having had a good business live of 59 years on earth, to this end Brethren your prayers is highly needed for this purpose. 

As soon as your reply is received to this offer, the other details will be released to you immediately. The funds are already lodged in a security firm in Europe, where the managers are eagerly awaiting
a recipient, as they have been advised accordingly. Remain blessed, Yours in His everlasting Service.

Respectfully Yours,

I am sending you my picture, if you can, ask the dignitaries in this picture about me. I am seeking no recognition from you or anyone, I do not want to be like Jonah (Jonah 1:17) hence I have to obey the voice of my God by keeping to my vow and being a channel for this miracle. I know you not but the lord who knows your inspirational stewardship in his kingdom says you should be in peace with all men and be honest (Hebrew 10:10) and just as he who calls you and me is honest, so we are

DEARLY BELOVED,

Honorable servant of the most high God. Loving greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Sorry for not replying on time Beloved, know that except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain, they that built it. Except the Lord keep the City, the watch man waketh
in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late. I fear God, and had kept my vow. God has no pleasure in fools, I have paid what I have vowed, and the rest is up to you. You have promised the funds will not be diverted for personal reasons, l therefore leaves you to God Almighty. Summit your name with proper identifications to the handling firm,(which will be forwarded to you thru.any medium to be choosen by you only) And follow their procedures through TAKING GIANT STRIDES FORWARD; One thing you will expect a giant to take is giant strides. That is natural, for a dwarf to take giant strides, now that will make news. Giant strides are for giants, Every man has a giant within, waiting to be let loose to make waves and make news. Watching a spiritual giant of our times in the person of my beloved BILL GRAHAM. Who says, '' I have never had a better last year,'' you know that the giant strides he had been taking in life and ministry are not necessarily a function of location but of a rugged decision to keep moving, in spite of all odds. At a service held recently for staff he said among many things, Go forward; is the conqueror's marching order. Life is made up of continuous motion. When you stop moving, you start falling. Life is secured by motion. Motion is the cure for frustration. 

You have to keep moving if you must get to where you are going.'' What we call success, is progress in the right direction. It is continuously taking steps forward. It is moving step by step toward your dream. A time came face to face with the Red Sea. The children of God would have turned back, expect that the Egyptians were behind them and the mountains were all around
them. There was only one way left to go, FORWARD' By going forward, the Red Sea had no option but to part. That is what happens to those who go forward, they level their opposition; As they moved forward, the force of progress subdued all their fears. So many people come to God grounded,
stranded and stagnated. But the amazing thing is that as they align themselves with the covenant, things begin to change.  Remain blessed and do pray for me always.
Yours truly, ln His Everlasting Service.
Amb. D.Fernandez

DIVINE INSTRUCTION TO SOW SEED INTO GOSPEL'S WORK

Dear Beloved in Christ

It is a privileged to hear from God and it gives me joy to relate my testimony to you haven received instruction from God through divine revelation.

I was once a Moslem before and also a retired military top officer in Nigerian Army that served under the past military regime. I was the financial secretary to the Armed Force Ruling Council (AFRC) during the regime of late head of the state then, (Late General Sanni Abacha rtd.). I am also privilege to be the chairman of the contract award committee then under the past military regime, with my position then, and due to the profit / commission that we do receive from all the subsequent contracts which we have awarded to people and also to ourselves after all the contracts has been executed successfully then, I then realized and acquired the total sum of twenty million America dollars ($20,000,000USD). And my planned then is to invest this money in Abroad when I retire but immediately I got retired, I was converted from Moslem to Christian when I was preached the words of God through my cousin Pastor Osaretin Ogundele. I then gave my life to Christ and became a born again Christian. It is written in 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17, Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

However, since I gave my life to Christ, I started having disturbed mind because some times I think of the souls I killed when I was a soldier, hence the need for me to seek the face of God for forgiveness. After fasting and prayer through Divine Revelation, then the Almighty God revealed to me that the only way I can be perfect, have rest of mind and also receive the forgiveness of God in order to have eternal life, is only when I follows the will of Bible which is the commandment of God, as matter of fact after a careful reading of Holy Bible to know the commandment God which I will always follow in order to be counted as one of the good follower of our Lord Jesus Christ, I then discovered these followings chapters and verses in the Holy Bible, firstly in the scripture of MATTHEW 19:21 Jesus said if thou will be perfect: go and sell that thou hast and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. In reference to the scripture of MARK 10:21. Even it is written in 1 CORINTHIANS 16: 14 that we should let all our things be done with charity, while MATTHEW 6: 1-6 says that we should give alms but in secret and not openly for people to know who gives out the alms. To mention just but few and as a matter of fact also, this few chapters and verses in the Holy Bible is enough for me to know what is right for me to do so that I will be counted among of people who follows the commandment of God in order to see the face of God for forgiveness of my sins as there is no gain for a man who inherited the all good of this world but can not enter the kingdom of God.

Also since then, I have been thinking of the particular thing to do for my God, before the present civilian president of my country now set up a panel(Honourable Oputa Panel) to probe the Bank Account of the past Military officers, thus I quickly withdrew all my money out of my Bank Account and deposited the money in a finance and security company for safety in order to avoid being seized by the federal Government of my country.

Also my initial planned immediately after my conversion is to sow half of this money into any reliable ministries abroad for the purpose of God's work while the remaining half will be for my investment on any profitable Christian business, as It is written in 2 CORINTHIANS 9: 6 that He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly, and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully, as it is also written in the book of PROVERBS 21:13 that Whosoever stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. But owing to the recent treat issue from the Presidency to inspect all deposits in finance security companies all over the country in a bid to stop all the money moves to abroad through the security companies around the nation, hence the need for me to quickly move this money out from my country, and I am now anxiously want this money to be moved out of my country as quick as possible to any reliable Ministry abroad, so this is reason why I am contacting you or your ministry for the assistance. I have been making arrangement on how to come over to your country with my family for thanksgiving, but you need to assist me to receive this money from the finance and Security Company in cash first before I can be able to come over. Should be incase the nature of your work will not permit you for the assistance incase you are always too busy, then I will want you to use your trusted status which the people of God reposed on you to be their leader / their pastor to kindly recommend a believer / a God fearing minded person who can be of help in assisting me to receive this money from the security company for the purpose of sowing it into the work of God and also for my investment, because I am praying fervently and I will try my possible means to avoid inherited all good things of this world so that I can be able to inherit the Kingdom of God in my life after.

So if this proposal meet your utmost consideration, then kindly and urgently contact me back first through this below email address ( deacking@excite.com) only.

Consequence upon your response that you are ready to assist me, then the details will be given to you on how you will be able to receive the fund in your country from the security company. I will be coming over to your ministry with my family for thanksgiving as soon as the money is being received by you over there in your country. Let honesty and trust (okeedokee) be our watchword throughout this transaction, your co-operation, understanding and your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

I pray to ALMIGHTY GOD to give us life and strength and great Wisdom of Solomon to live in order to expand His kingdom. According to the book of JAMES 1:5 that If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen. HEBREWS 13: 25

$20 Million available to an honest Christian

Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, knowing the truth and the truth have set me free. Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God's mercy and glory upon my life.

I have the pleasure to share my testimony with you, having seen your contact from the Internet. I am Barrister Emmanuel Isioma , the legal adviser to late Mr. and Mrs. Bright Williams, a British couple that lived in my Country Nigeria for 25 years before they both died in the plane crash late last year. These couples were good Christians, they so dedicated to God but they had no child till they died. Throughout their stay in my country, they acquired a lot of properties like lands, house properties, etc.

As their legal adviser, before their death, the husband Mr. Bright Williams instructed me to write his WILL. Because they had no child, they dedicated their wealth to God. According to the WILL, the properties have to be sold and the money be given out to a ministry for the work of God. As their legal adviser, all the documents for the properties were in my care. He gave me the authority to sell the properties and give out the fund to the Ministries for the work of God.

In short, I sold all the properties after their death, as instructed by Mr. Bright Williams before his death. And as matter of fact, after I sold all their properties, I realized more than $20,000,000.00 (twenty million US dollars plus), and what supposed to be the percentage interest of my right legal fee was firstly deducted by me out of the total amount realized from the sold properties, this was base on the initial agreement between me and the owner of the properties before his death. Therefore the total amount left to be invested into God's work as instructed by the owner, is $20,000,000.00 (Twenty million US dollars) only. But Instead of giving the main fund out for the work of God as instructed to me by the owner before his death. I converted the fund to myself with the intention of investing the fund abroad for my personal use. I was afraid of putting the fund in the Bank, because I have to give account to the bank on how I got the money. I then packaged the fund in consignments and deposited the consignments with a security company. I did not want the management of the Security Company to know the content of the consignments, therefore I registered the content of the consignments as diplomatic bills. Now, the security company believes that what I deposited with them was diplomatic bills.

I had encounter with Christ when Pastor Benny Hinn was preaching on television concerning Ananias and Saphira in Acts 5:1-11. After hearing the word of God, I gave my life to Christ and became a born again Christian. As a born again Christian, I started reading my bible and one day, the Lord opened my eyes to Ezekiel 33: 18 and 19 where the word of God says: "When the righteous truth from his righteousness, and committee iniquity, he shall even die thereby. But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby". From the scripture, I discovered that the only way I could have peace in my life is to do what is lawful and right by giving out the fund as instructed for the work of God by the owner before his death.

I have asked God for forgiveness and I know that God have forgiven me. But I have to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God by giving out the fund to the chosen ministry for the purpose of God's wok as instructed by the owner before his death.

After my fasting and prayers, I asked God to make his choice and direct me to a honest Christian or the chosen ministry that deserves this fund by his Grace. I then came across your address on the Internet as I was browsing through a Christian site, and as a matter of fact, it is not only you or your ministry that I picked on the Christian site initially, but after my fervent prayer over it, then you were nominated to me through divine revelation from God, so these are how I received such a divine revelation from the Lord, how I got your contact information, and I then decided to contact you for the fund to be used wisely for things that will glorify the name of God.

I have notified the Security Company where I deposited the consignments that contained the fund, that I am moving the consignment abroad and the security company has since been waiting for my authority for the consignment to leave my country and move to abroad. So if you know that you will use this fund honestly and wisely for things that will glorify God's name, then do contact me back first
through my private email address (emma_isioma@voila.fr).

You should also forward to me your full name and address, telephone and fax number for easy communication and to fax you the documents concerning the consignments.

Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

Yours in Christ.
Barrister Emmanuel Isioma.

------- WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THESE SCAM ARTISTS? -------

Not much. We don't want to sound fatalistic, but the reality is that the scam artists hide behind untraceable email addresses, sending their scam letters from pay-by-the-hour Internet Cafes. The governments of Africa are generally in a survival mode, with little interest in dealing with some Internet scam artist in a local village. There are always bigger fish to fry. 

Plus we have actually talked with West African government and business officials about their perception of these 419 scams. They have expressed amazement that anyone could be fooled by the  empty promises contained in unsolicited emails from a stranger in Africa. In their eyes, the culpability goes both ways. "Who could be such a fool to give money to someone they have never met?" This is a valid question for all of us to ponder...

What we have done at The Freeman Institute is to provide a free public service to individuals who may be flirting with the idea of great wealth coming their way. Our motto is: Run, don't walk, away from these scams and then do what you can to warn people about this pervasive problem. Feel free to provide a link to www.freemaninstitute.com/419.htm -- so that more people can see the truth about these 419 scams.
