It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel safer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate it if you can forward to me your full names, your contact adrress, and your photo page of your international passport or your driver's license, you bank informations, and your tel/fax numbers.

I appreciate your prompt reply, however, you still failed to send me all of the information that I requested. You still never sent me your bank information.

Also, before I transfer the money (which I'll do this Monday at the latest) I just need some confirmation that you are who you say you are. So would you please send me a PICTURE OF YOURSELF. This photo can be attached to your next e-mail in a standard image format (such as .JPG). Also, to insure that it is actually you in the picture, would you kindly be pictured HOLDING A SIGN that reads the following:

1) your name ("RICHARD JOHNSON")


2) my bank's name: "DOUCHE/BAG"

This will ensure that the picture is indeed of yourself, as a photo looking as I described cannot be forged or found elsewhere on the internet. Please make sure that the sign is CLEAR AND VISIBLE.

Once I receive that information, I will send the money via Western Union right away.

Also, on your request, I can send you any photos/documentation of myself, should you also need proof of my identity.

Thank you,

Hello Mr. William Cosby,

Well, your mail was receive in my office this afternoon, it’s seems that you are not sure who I’m. As a branch manager of this bank, I don’t think doing that will be a good idea because I don’t want the situation where the chairman of this organization will see this picture and you know what is the next thing that will happen to me in this bank.

So I will see what I can do about it. And if you know you are not comfortable about this, please I will then advise you to come down here to our bank and see everything yourself.
Please I will give you my bank information, only if the money has been transferred to your account, understand my status in this bank please. And you have to send my 60% back to me. O.K.

Please I still need your telephone number to call you.
Kindly act fast because I want this money transfer to your account before the xmas holidays.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Mr. Richard Johnson
Branch manager,
International commercial bank

I understand your situation regarding the photograph and I sympathize with your problem, however I simply must insist that you please find a way to send me one. My schedule doesn't allow myself time to fly out and personally visit your bank, so the photograph is the only way that I can verify your identity. Please don't take this as an insult to your integrity.

So once again here are my instructions:

I request you send a PICTURE OF YOURSELF, attached to your next e-mail.
I would like you pictured HOLDING A SIGN that reads the following:

1) your name ("RICHARD JOHNSON")


2) my bank's name: "DOUCHE/BAG"

Please follow those requirements exactly. Once that is completed, I will declare all of the precautionary measures complete and will send you my phone number and wire the money immediately.
