My names are Mr. Ibrahim Haruna,I work as a Vault Manager with a Private Security Company based in Ghana. I have been working with this security company for the past 15 Years with dedication, though my salary is nothing to write home about.I bring good tidings to you today dear, Though before now we do not know each other for the first time but I believe strongly that my coming to you with this prospective business is divine. But my word for you is that you will never regret this assistance and participation in bringing this transaction to completion with me.
In our Security Company Vault where I work as attendant, there is these Consignments that has been laying UNCLAIMED for the past 7 years and nobody ever comes for the claims of these consignments, from the file and record before me in my office I have traced the depositor of these Consignments only to find out that he is late for the past 4year ago, and every effort to locate any of his surviving relatives or close family members proof abortive.
Now, about three months ago the members and board of directors of our company met and deliberated upon that every consignment that has exceeded the period of 5year without it depositor coming for claims and collection be destroyed or disposed so as to create space to accommodate other incoming consignment from new clients/Customers. It is on this basis that I capitalized on knowing what is in these consignments,I run a scan on these consignment only to find out that it contents are fiscal cash to running into Millions of United States of American Dollars.
To this effect the entire management of our company does not know about this development till date, now I am contacting you believing that you could be of assistance in joining hands with me to have these Consignments/Metallic Trunk Boxes Removed and shipped to your country where immediately after the completion of this transaction I will come over to your country to Disburse/Share the Fund inside the Consignment 40% to you while 60% for me the initiator.
Should you accept this offer I will personally secure a Transfer of Ownership of these consignments to your names and back date it to suit the claims while I will file in your names in the computers as the rightful beneficiary to these consignment/ Metallic Trunk Boxes and every necessary information that will lead to claim it will I supply to you which you might consider necessary during the time of claims and collection of the consignment.
Also should you need to see the copies of the deposit Documents that was issued to the late depositor by the management of our company I will not hesitate to make it available to your perusal and retention if only you can make your direct Telephone, cell phone and fax numbers known to me I will have them faxed to you without further delays.
I can guarantee you that if only you give me a chance and cooperate with me within the next fourteen(14) working days from today the consignment will be released and delivered to your doorstep in your country. I know how to handle this and immediately after the completion of this transaction I will personally destroy and delete every information leading to the completion of this transaction this is to assure you that I will not leave any traces.
Please Dear, I will advise here that you need not to disclose this transaction to a third ear for now until we finally bring this transaction to completion.I look forward to hearing from your, you can contact me for further details.

subjek DONATION FROM MRS LUCY JOHANSON
Mrs Lucy Johanson
P.O.Box: 20581, Safat
13066 Safat Kuwait
Dearest in Christ,
Greetings in the Name above all names, Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour, I am Mrs Lucy Johanson. I am married to Mr.Livingston Johanson who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for many years before he died in the year 2007.We were married without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christian.
Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($4.600.000.00) Four million six hundred thousand Dollars in a Bank in Ivory Coast . Presently, this money is still in bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem.
The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a charity organization that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want an organization that will use this fund for orphanages, school and church, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavour that the house of God is maintained, Isaiah 56:7 For my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” 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 efforts to be used by unbelievers.
I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this 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 hence 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 Bank in Ivory Coast.
I await your soonest response with your full information, example.
Your full name…………………..
A copy of your int’l passport or ID card………….
I will use the above information to obtain an authority letter that will prove you the new beneficiary of this fund from Royal Court of Kuwait. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply with the above information.
Your Sister in Christ,
Mrs Lucy Johanson
