Some are too good to be true, whilst some can are pretty convincing. By the time we are aware,money and some valuable information are already in the possession of the perpetrators. DON'T be a victim of internet scam or 419.

please do not be surprise to receive this email.
My name is Kenneth Johnson; I am from Liberia, but presently living in Gambia with my little sister Haddy, due to our condition since the death of our parent. However, I write to seek your help and cooperation to help us retrieve our consignment box (money) which is in the custody of a delivery agent who brought it to your country after Mr.Hassan Hamid disappointed us out of his greediness.
At first, we agreed to compensate him with 20% of the total sum of the money which is US$5.5Million Dollars, but he later disliked our initial agreement with him and demanding for 60% of the total sum. Please, if you can assist/help us retrieve the consignment box (money) from the diplomat, as he does not know the content of the consignment, we will be very happy to compensate you with 25% of the total sum.
Furthermore, I will give you the contact details of the delivery agent there in your country so that you can speak with him and then take delivery of the consignment box (fund) from him on our behalf and then help us to process our travelling documents so that we can relocate to your country to continue our education. Please, I would also need an experienced person like you to assist us set up; develop a good investment project that will yield us profit, before we conclude our education. You will be in charge of the investment and you will also be entitled to a percentage agreed upon from the investment.
I am expecting your urgent response. Please call us immediately you get hold of this email +220 7710830
Thank you and God bless,
Kenneth Johnson & Haddy
