Dear Chosen One,

From the Editor: it’s so sad that someone who has $22 million in a bank in france, is till in a refugee camp, but at least they have the internet. To think, if i just help get the money to the US, all her problems were solved. If i didn’t get so many of these, i might try to reply to get a few more pieces of info. But don’t wast your time or money, these are all lies, frauds, etc.

Dear Chosen One,

I am a refugee in Ghana under the United Nations. I am originally from Liberia and have spent 3 years in Ghana as a refugee. My arrival in Ghana was a huge success for me since it provided me with the opportunity to live again after losing my parents to war. My coming to Ghana was easy since i was opportuned to move my late parents diamonds from Liberia to Ghana.

I arrived Ghana with 23 carats of diamond which was soled for $22 million U.S. The man who purchased the diamond promised to invest the fund for my education. The fund was moved to BNP Paribas Bank in Paris France where we wanted to invest in Hotel. I lost contacts with my associate who was working for my admission in American University of Paris. Recently i got the shocking news from the American University of Paris that my associate Mr. James Perrier died in The Air France crash in Brazil.
I have not secured the admission with the school which should have given me the opportunity to be in France and would not be there again since my associate is no more. I want us (you and me) to work on moving the fund from Paris to your country where i can face my future. I have lost my beloved associate (May his soul rest in peace). When the fund is moved to your care, you can work on my admission and help me come to your country for my education and better life. I wait for your approval on this.

Attn; Director/Ceo
Urgent Request for Business Partnership ;

With due respect, trust and humility, I write to you this proposal, which I believe would be of great interest to you. I find your contact while I was doing a private research on the Internet for a reliable and capable foreign partner that will assist my family to transfer funds to his/her personal or company bank account for investment purposes. I am John Garange, 27 years old, the first son of Late Mr. Peter Garange of blessed memory and the “Late Chairman” of the farmer’s co-operation in Zimbabwe .

My late father was among the few blacks that were murdered in cold blood by the President Robert Mugabe’s autocratic administration during the land dispute that just happened in Zimbabwe . After his death, we decided to move out from Zimbabwe because our live were in danger and insecure as my father was the target and we reasoned that our continued stay in Zimbabwe would eliminate our dear lives, thus we flew the country to South Africa.

Before his death, he went to South Africa and deposited the sum of Forty million United States Dollars (USD40m) in a private security company in Johannesburg . This money was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland and Lesotho . Before his death, he was also a major share holder of companies in Zimbabwe .

After he died, we moved to South Africa with all the necessary documents related to this fund.  We are here now as asylum seekers and as such the laws of South Africa do not permit us to operate or open any bank account here or be involved in any financial transaction with any bank. That is why we contacted you so that we would transfer the money (now in security company) to your bank account as we have planned for the successful transfer.

We are ready to compensate you with 10% of the total funds for accepting to assist us, 5% will be used for any unforeseen situation during the transfer while 85% will be for my family’s investment in your country.
Should you be ready to assist us as explained, kindly contact me on the above phone number or email me on johngarange02@xxxxxxxx.com
On receiving your acceptance,we shall be glad to give you more clarification on the modalities needed for smooth and successful completion of this transaction.
Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.
John Garange
(For the family).

From: Mrs.Patricia Wagner

I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Dr Shawn Wagner who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2005.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 18Million Dollars eighteen Million United State Dollars with one finance/security Company in Europe

Presently this money is still with the Security Company. Recently my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this Fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church that will use this fund to fund churches orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner.

Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always. I don’t want them to know about this development.

With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance/Security Company in Europe I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the original- beneficiary of this Fund.. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.

Hoping to hearing from you soon.

I have set aside 20% for you and for your time and 10% for any expenses if there is any.

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.

Yours in Christ

Mrs. Patricia Wagner
