Dear Beneficiary

From: RevFrWilliam Doherty -

In Conjunction with the International Monetary Fund

Attn:Dear Beneficiary

I am Rev.Father William Doherty,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$10 million. Why we did this is
because according to information gathered from the bank'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 the money is in a security-proof box weighing 75kg.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.

Today 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 met 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 organization 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 courier.

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

God be with us as we wait for your reply

Yours Faithfully,
