of a new partner from Portugal who is an international businessman.
Presently I'm in Spain now for investment projects with my husband.
Meanwhile, I did not forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me
in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.
Now I want you to contact the Reverend Father with this address
Name Reverend Jude Jack

Instruct him where to send you the total sum of $170,000. 00 (One
Hundred Seventy Thousand US Dollars) which I kept for your compensation
for all the past efforts and attempt to assist me in this matter. I
appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in
touched with the Reverend Father in Senegal now and instruct him where
to send the draft to you ok.
At the moment, I'm very busy here because of the new investment projects
with which I and my new partner are having at hand and also preparing

all the instruction to the Reverend Father who have been a source of
inspirations to me since I was in the refugees camp, and also he was the
one that helped me through with all assistance including the confidence
with my new Partner who is a very nice man, so I gave him all
instructions on your behalf for you to receive your money.
Further more, you may not be receiving any messages from me because my
