Subject: I JUST RRIVED JFK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT URGENT REPLY IMMEDIATELY
Attn: TO You
I’m diplomat Mark Wilfred; I have been trying to reach you on your telephone about an hour now just to inform you about my successful arrival in John F.Kennedy International Airport with your two boxes of consignment worth $3.5m Three Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars which I have been instructed by ECOWAS COURIER DELIVERY COMPANY to be delivered to you. The Airport authority demanded for all the legal back up papers to prove to them that the fund is no way related with drug nor fraud money, I have presented the papers I handed to them and they are very much pleased with the paper’s I presented but the only thing that is still keeping me here is the airport delivery Tag which is not placed on the boxes, one of the Airport Authority has advise that we get the delivery tag so that I can exit the airport immediately and make my delivery successful .I try to reason with them and they stated the delivery tag will cost us just $ 59 Dollars only to get the two tag placed on the boxes as that tag will enable
Please try and reach me with my international roaming number +22996667892 as I can not afford to spend more time here due to other delivery I have to take care of in Bangkok. Here are the papers backing the funds together with my ID CARD as I can accompany you to your bank were you will deposit the fund successfully with these papers. I have i more vital paper with me but I can only present you the hard copy when I reach your house as that it’s the diplomatic rules, such as authorization to deliver.
You can direct the tag fee to our Head Office as they will get it here for you and they are entitled to receive and make any payment to foreign countries authority.

Text Question. Who is our saviour?
Answer ….The Lord Jesus.
DIPLOMAT MARK WILFRED.
I was really digging those emails. The threats I got from telling them to fuck off and die… were amusing!
A while back, as I fought back boredom, I kept track of how many millions of dollars I won/was granted/was the beneficiary of… and in a 28 day period – according to all this spam/scam I get many times a day – I would have in excess of $98M USD.
I was gonna be RICH!
I think I’m going to miss all this invasion of privacy threats, Nigerian scam artists who like to remind me that Jesus Christ is their saviour and salvation is only found in the Lord, as well as in having access to my identity and bank account.
OK. On second thought – I won’t miss them that much, afterall.
