THE UNITED NATIONS ORGANIZATION
IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND
WORLD BANK FACT-FINDING & SPECIAL DUTIES OFFICE
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM.
Greetings to you,
I am Rev.Father Peter Williams, Harth, a senior staff with the World
Bank fact finding & special duties office. I am writing you this
letter because cool penny is better than million of dollars. It is
better for one to live and die poor honest man than a rich dishonest
The Chief security officer (CSO) of this organization and I have
arranged with an officer in computer section, engineer Peter Cliff has
agreed to bring out part of your total sum amounting to US$10 Million,
why we did this is because according to information gathered from the
bank's/security computer, you have been waiting for a long time to
receive your money without success.
As I found out that you have almost met all the statutory requirements
in respect of your fund settlement. Your problem is that of interest
groups. A lot of people are interested in your payment and those people
are merely doing papers works with you and that is why you receive
messages from different people every day. Also we found out that some
of the officials of the parasitals have been extorting a lot of money
from you with the pretext of helping you to receive your money. I can
assure you that this may last for years yet nothing happens, if you do
not do away with those officers you call your partners, and for
security reasons. Do not tell anybody that you have your money until
you receive cash at your doorstep.
The money is in two security proof boxes weighing 110kg each, which is
220kg for the two boxes, We went to four courier companies to make
arrangements on how to ship them by courier to you, we went to DHL,
FEDEX, IAS, UPS, and all said that they must open the boxes for
inspection by the customs before shipment. This is something we want to
avoid because the boxes were padded with synthetic nylon and to open
them you have to cut the pad before you will meet the buttons that you
will press to open the dial code-lock. There is no way you can open the
boxes and be able to close them again because they were padded with
machine. We told the courier services that the boxes contained film
materials and when open will spoil the materials.
We did not declare money because couriers do not carry money. Today a
friend of mine who is diplomat disclosed to me that there is courier
service they use to send diplomatic material and information from one
country to another. It has diplomatic immunity and cannot check by any
customs any where in the World. The name of the courier service is
Oxford Security Courier Service (OSCS) I will meet them as soon as I
have your go ahead order. The Diplomat will help me to get immunity
papers, so we do not have any problem.
We have concluded that you must compensate us with five hundred
thousand United States Dollars (US$500.000.00) as soon as you receive
your money to this effect, you will send to us a promissory note for
five hundred thousand united States Dollars (US$500.000.00) along with
your identifcation and address for sending the boxes by courier, Please
maintain top most secrecy as it may cause a lot of problem if found out
that we are using this way to help you. Do not ever tell anybody
about this until you have your money.
I want to help you because something in me is telling me that you are
an honest person when we concluded this and you send our promise.
We will help to ship the final part of your money to you. Be blessed as
we wait for your urgent reply. For security reason please reply to
Rev.Father Peter Williams

There are many different types of 419 scam (examples)
but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary /
low-interest loan, lottery prize,
bargain gold dust / diamonds,
work visa, etc.) in return
for a small 'fee' or some kind of remittance. Of course, there is no
fortune, no job, no loan, no prize to be had. It's just a ploy to get
willingly send them money.
