Without mincing words, I am convinced 100% that you have had bitter experience
with various scammers' claiming to be high government officials and thereby
defrauding you of your hard-earned money'. The activities of these scammers has
changed your perspective about conducting business on the internet, and you now
believed there is no genuine business that can be conducted on the internet.
Well, I am an American and the internet was created by Americans for the
purpose of creating awareness for your products/services and conducting genuine
business with ease. I am fully committed to deliver the "diplomatic
consignment" to you in the United States and every paths in the World Countries
in order to differentiate myself from the many Benin Republic you have dealt
with. I am a full citizen of the United States and trained in many countries ,
but I was on a Foreign Mission here in Benin as a US Ambassador. Hence, I am
making every efforts to ensure that no citizen of the United States and other
countries is cheated by Nigeria.
Therefore, I need your ultmost support and understanding to actualize this
dream. I also want you to understand that I do trust you and I expect you to
show me the same trust and respect in return since trust is a 2 way street. On
the other hand, trust is a relationship of reliance. Trust also means being
able to predict what other people will do and what situations will occur.
Trust is both an emotional and logical act. Emotionally, it is where you expose
your vulnerabilities to people, but believing they will not take advantage of
your openness. Logically, it is where you have assessed the probabilities of
gain and loss, calculating expected utility based on hard performance data, and
concluded that the person in question will behave in a predictable manner. In
practice, trust is a bit of both. I trust you because I have experienced your
trustworthiness by merely believing in what I have said, even when you have not
seen me, and because I have faith in human nature.
Frankly speaking, I understand that anyone in your shoes will feel betrayed,
but I still want you to show me your trust by giving me the benefit of doubt on
this delivery arrangement. My identity and personality is verifiable, and I
promise to deliver the consignment to you in your country and the united state
without any hitch. Please do not allow this mission to die off because of $105
usd dollars. I meant so well for you and I believe you will appreciate me more
when you have finally received your partial payment of $26 million dollars upon
my arrival with the package in your country. I will use my position and
personality to deposit the $26 million dollars into your bank account in your
country without questioning from the financial monitoring authorities, since
all documentations proving the legitimacy of the fund.
Please don't see me as one of the numerous dubious Nigeria you have dealt with
in the past. I am a different person entirely and I come from a different
continent. I have the American spirit in me and I hate cheaters. I promise to
always uphold the national unity of the United States.Please reply back ASAP
and let me know your possibility of sending the $105 dollars usd today.
