Compliments of the season,
My humble regards
to you and your family. Tony Williams is my name. A SierraLeonean by nationality. I am presently residing in the neighbouring
country republic of Benin as a result of war that ravaged my country couple of years. For this reason, most of us that worked
under the military are under very tight scrutiny and constant oppression, thus necessitating my flee to the republic of Benin
for safety reasons, myself and my family. I wish to share with you in confidence that before I left Freetown to Benin, there
is certain amount of money totalling US$15 million, which I successfully moved out to oversea through a diplomatic channel,
with the assistance of a securities and finance company where it is presently deposited.
It is this money which I wish to invest, purely on your
personal advise in a related area of my interest which is acquisition of farmlands/buying franchise of one or two products
made in your
company/country which will be exported to popular African markets that commands large demand for such products.
I am thereby approaching you basically for these reasons:
To assist us in the aspect of securing the funds at the securities company, and settle in your nominated account for our joint
2)To grant us the moral and technical advise that we may require to invest overseas as mentioned above.
I have also resolved to compensate you with a 10% of the
total sum involved for the role which you shall play in the project .Pls note that your capability to handle this transaction
is also important as this might require your presence in overseas to receive the funds on my behalf as my foreign partner
As you indicate interest to work with me, please feel
free to contact me for now through my email for mor details
Thanking you in advance for you kind and urgent response.

Osmond, aka "Mercedes, Misty, or "Majic". I have to use fake names because sometimes we have some crazies who want to
follow you home.
I'm sending you one of my modeling pictures from Lace so that you know what I look like and
you'll know that I'm not joking when I say that I'm "hot". I make some pretty good money working as a dancer at Lace
but there's got to be an easier way than taking your clothes off and shaking your boobs at middle aged drunk bald men.
You know what I mean? So I hope that we can work together to make some easy money.
So, tell me about yourself
Tony. Send me a pic if you can. Can't wait to hear from you again.

be willing to do business with you.
(We may have scared him with those tough questions, so we
check in again)
How are you sugar? I haven't heard
back from you and I wondered if you were okay. I hope that I didn't scare you off with all my nosy questions.
I'm just curious about who you are and what you look like. I'll bet you're a real hunk. Can't wait to hear
back and hopefully you'll send me a handsome picture of yourself. Let's get this deal going please honey.
I'm a little short of cash right now and would love to buy a new Lexus.
Dear Marie Osmond
i want to let you know that this transaction require money
to conclude it. You will be paid through a diplomatic courier security company in spain and you have to pay their handling
charges before the money will be released to you about 6500 us dollars. I am right now in exile and i dont have money except
that in the security company which i moved out before i flee for exile. Anybody who will assist to secure the funds
will pay the handling charges. If know you can handle that i will give your particulars to the security company to contact
you. Are you going to be honest to me when you recieve this money?
I talked to the girls at the Lace Strip
Club and they are all willing to give us money to help but only if I will share some of my money with them. So far I
have collected $5,000 from the girls. Do you think that is enough?
Tony, I need to know that I can trust
you. I am very suspicious because you did not answer the questions that I gave you and you did not send me a picture
of yourself. Please do this or I will not deal with you any further.
Love and Kisses,

What are you doing? How is your family?
I have not heard anything from you. Did you get my last e-mail? I still need proof of your legitimacy (that
means that you are real).
The girls and I at Lace Strip Club have put together about $6000 now and are
willing to help out. Please send me a digital picture of yourself and answer the questions that I sent to you.
Love and kisses,
Your request towards this transaction is making
me see if you are not serious over the transaction, what do you want to do with my picture right now since you know i will
come to meet with you face to face.
Getting the money required is not the issue, can you handle
I am not playing, and again you need not giving me treat if you want to deal with me or not because iam sure of
what i am doing . Assure me if you can handle this transaction or not. if you can handle the transaction, you have to follow
my instructions. so let me know if you can follow
my instructions so i will tell how we can proceed.
Sweet Tony ,
You seem to be a little tense honey.
Lighten up. I'm sending you another picture of me that might chill you out.
I am not playing
either. Can't you see that I am totally serious. Do you think that I was joking with my sister strippers when
I raised $6,000 to help you with your cause. We're even talking about having a fund raising night at Lace Nightclub
just for you. You should feel very flattered that you have 10 strippers who are doing things to make you happy.
The reason that I ask for your picture is that I talked to my brother in law who is a paralegal here in Utah,
and he said that I need a picture to establish your identity. He said that there are a lot of dishonest people on the
Internet who claim to be someone that they are not. He suggested that you answer my questions too.
So please Tony if you are who you say you are, you will cooperate with me just a little so that I can be confident that you
are not just playing with me.
I need you to reassure me that this is not a fraud or a game that you are just
using to manipulate me. I'm a little suspicious of men who tell me that they are going to do things for me or that they
have lots of money. I hear it all the time at the nightclub. Most are just liars. I hope that isn't the
case with you.
Please Tony. Don't let me down. Show me that you are a real man.
I think that we can be good together.
Dear Marie Osmond
I saw your picture, you are a beautiful girl. Marie you have
not answered my question, raising the six thusand dollars is not the matter, can you handle this transaction. How can you
assure me of my money since you have made the transaction so open. I have not cheated anybody before and i cannot do that,so
if you can assure me your capability of handling the transaction then i will tell you what to do.
Who the hell is Phillip? You said your
name was Tony. Is this what I get? A guy telling me he is honest and has never cheated anyone and
then he can't even remember what name he made up to lie to me? You are worse than any of the guys at the strip club.
You are a dishonest bastard Tony or Phillip or whatever your name is.

I was just kidding with that last e-mail.
I know that you really are my Tony dude. Philip is probably just a secret code name or something. I guress
I'll use my secret code name too.
Yes, I am more than able to handle this transaction. The question
is, can you handle me?
Where are you? I haven't heard from you
in so long. What's happening? Do we still have a deal?
Marie (Osmond) - remember?
Well somehow we managed to scare Tony off. Go figure! I guess Marie was just a little too over the
top. The last e-mail to Tony was returned undeliverable.
