I first received the usual email about the death of husband, a lot of money, need to send it out.... so I replied.
Caution: Do not be offended by the religious references, it was all said in jest to see how far I can go with this scammer.
Hello Mrs Precious Karaboh,
I am indeed honoured to receive a letter from such a person!
Please advice me how I can assist you as I am from Singapore, and my country laws does not have such lax banking policies.
There could be a way to go around it though, so I would need your confirmation.
My Dear Jeremy,
I am glad to read your mail and I really appreciate your response ,
First let me start by thanking you for your positive response, kindness and your willingness to help me and my family out of this predicament. I and my son have resolved to move this money to outside South Africa for investment purposes.
Therefore it is my pleasure writing this mail to you with more explanations
1) First , you might be required to come here for the opening of a non-resident international dollar bank account through which the fund can be transferred from
to your yet to be nominated bank account in your country after all the approvals and documentations in your name and favor as the foreign beneficiary .
2) Secondly if you cannot be able to come here then I can contact a bank’s resident and accredited attorney who can be able to assist us in carrying out the transaction on your behalf in your absence here.
But please bear in mind that the most important thing to us is on the security and safety of the fund when transferred to your bank account in your country before my son’s arrival to join you hence I need from you is trust , sincerity and the ability to handle this transaction confidentially .
Your ability to handle this transaction and also to assist in the fund management after the transfer will also be a greater advantage , that is in the investment of the fund in a good business venture .
Your good advise , suggestions and positive ideas will be highly appreciated so that I will know what next to do .
May the goodness of God guide and be with us as we progress with this transaction.
Thanks and God bless while I await for your response.

Dear Mrs Precious,
I refer to your previous email, and I thank you for your courtesy.
I would also like to earn this fair share of commission with my own reasonable effort. After it is not every day that one person can earn a few million by doing such simple work. I think God has been kind to me. I attribute this to talking with my friend Jesus everyday. Do you talk to him? You should. After all, he brought me you to me and us to each other.
I do not think I can go to South Africa or Zimbabwe as I have a medical condition. I can however, try to assist you from here. I can ask my friend to go to South Africa though, he is comfortable working with animals.
I believe an attorney will be expensive, and I have no inclination to work with them, but if you insist, I do not mind as long as I do not smell their bad breath.
There is no more secure method of communication through email as I am using a highly secure Mac OSX laptop which Windows virus cannot even hope to enter. I can only think of someone more sincere than me and if you want, I can refer him to you. But I am also very sincere. So I hope you can consider my application.
Back to you, and may Jesus, the Lord and Allah bless you.
Dear Jeremy Ko,

Name: Richard Khumalo Felix
Please sir, we urge you to advice your friend to contact our legal Advocate or you can contact him direct to know the requirements to finalize this transaction during the arrival of your friend or you please help us for God sake please.

Mrs. Precious Karaboh and son James.
Dear Mrs Precious and Son,
I am know I am kind. I recently received a Kindness Award from the Prestigious Government of Singapore Institute for Kindness Studies. This is the most glamorous award in our country. I had 12 women serving me for 3 days. You might ask what was the kind deed I did, but it would not be nice to boast. So let's get back to our business.
My friend is very comfortable with animals. He will be able to assist you. I would like to invest in Lehmann Brothers but they have closed down. Their High 5 notes have brought me great returns 3 years ago. I sold-out before the crash started. I am on very close terms with Germany's High Chancellor who warned me beforehand. Do you know which investment vehicles I should ride on?
I no longer believe in Jesus. Yesterday I asked him for his help and it was rejected. My pastor said it was part of God's plan. I have a new God, Odin. I asked him for the same favour and it was granted. Now I win the Kindness Award and have many woman. Long Live Odin.
I trust your judgement that he is a very good man. The world is full of good man. Wars are a result of black people and bad people.
Mr Richard, I am unable to travel much because of my medical condition. I can only leave my bed once every few days with the help of a medical assistant. I am glad she is hot with good body otherwise my life has no other purpose. Do I give you my bank account number so you can transfer the money in? I wish to collect the money fast and go for happy time.
I apologize for not picking up your phone call. My phone bill is already very high from the phone calls from Nigeria and South Africa. Singapore Power is very nice, they give me night time in the day.
For Odin's sake, I will help you on the pride of the Vikings!
I will advice you to invest in ancient relics of the Vikings, like their helmets and ships. They will be very valuable when the Great Flood comes in.
