Capt. Godwin Simon says: "you should adhere to my instructions"
. Hello, I am Miss Young. I received this story from a friend. Let me call him Solomon. Go to the homepage to see more stories.

Dear Miss Young

First of all I want to thank for the good work that you have started.  I
want to inform you that even myself I have received a quite number of emails from some called himself Captain Godwin Simon from the millitary of Liberia and he said he is an Engineer.

I thank my God JESUS CHRIST, for the wisdom that HE gave me and I want to thank HIM for opening my eyes and I did not fall for this trap.

For more information I have got all these emails including the probate certificate, photographs that I think may help other people. 

Thank you may God richly bless you

Dear Good Friend,

Please pardon my indignation for contacting you via this media.
I have no option for now than to mail you. I know that my letter may seem strange to you, but I pray God that you give it a fair hearing as you will benefit from it too.

I am in need of your assistance.....My name is Capt. Godwin Simon, I am in the Engineering Military Unit of Liberia.....I have about $25.5 Million US dollars I made during the civil war in my country on diamond deal and I have moved this fund to Ghana and now I want to move this fund out of that country to your country.

I want to move this fund to your country through diplomatic means, to send it directly to you or any place of your choice in your country with diplomatic courier service,.....provided you will assure me of your capability to secure this fund......untill I will come with my investment plans on my own share of the fund.

Once the fund get to you, you will take 30% out of this fund and keep 70% safely for me. My good friend your role in this deal is to set up secured A/C where you will lodge in my own part of this fund safely untill I come for it.

Please reply me back immediately if you are interested...I will furnish you with more details soonest I read your reply.

I guarantee that this deal will be executed under legitimate arrangements that will protect you from any breach of the law. Be rest assured of this my good friend.

On your reply please indicate your telephone and fax numbers for easier and oral communication.

Waiting for your urgent response.

Friendly regards,

Capt. Godwin Simon.

Dear Mr. Solomon,
Ok I will take this documents to public com center here to scan and sent them to you without further delay. On
side of this $2,500,...please I must tell you truth. I am very broke here and can not raise it...I told you I spent more than $62,000 on this recent trip to Ghana.
Mr. Solomon,....I make sure that demurrage and storage charges are paid, that there will be no problems or delay when you come for the withdrawal.
God bless.
Capt. Godwin Simon.

Dear Captain

I want to give an assurance that I want to help as much as I can. So
please understand that even on my side I must be safe as much as you safe
on your side.

I won't let you down as I told you even from the first email I have send
to you that my intension to get this money is to build our church and help
those who are in need.

Because I believe by helping you, you are helping me as well. Provide me
with more information concerning this transaction. Are we going to
corriour to South Africa or we deposit in my account.

Please give me a ring sometimes on my office number or personal phone
+2733 3444. Thank you Captain

God Bless You and just remember with God nothing is impossible, we are
going to make it.

Dear Mr. Solomon,
I want you to understand the need that you proceed to Ghana without delay...To avoid encountering more and more charges as I have paid for the demurrage and the storage charges.
Solomon, as I told you I will asign my PA to meet you at Ghana.
I will make sure he arrives in Ghana before you, to pick you from the airport upon your arrival, so that you both will proceeds to the company the next day for the withdrawal of this fund.
After retrieving fund from security company vault,
will take it to a good bank there in Ghana to exchange it into cashiers cheque,.......which you will deposit into your nominated bank account in South Africa when you return.
I will make a good search for banks in Ghana that has
good international relations and inform you.
God bless.

Dear Captain,

Thank you for your documents they are so wonderful

Could you please do me one thing, so as you said you need my help to
withdraw this money and you said you are broke but if you really need my
help Captain just raised $2,500.00 and my flying tickets from South Africa
to Ghana & from Ghana back to South Africa.

I think that way it will be better for us especially for you because you
need my help. And you are the one who contacted me so all what you have
started please Captain finish it. I don't think someone who owns $25
million can be broke, but if you really need my help proof it to me

There is something that I don't understand why now I must raised handling
fees whose account is and money as well? You were supposed to contact me
before you even put the money to Ghana & why now all of a sudden you want
to move your money from Ghana to my country.

Thank you

Hello Solomon,
I am so disappointed by your saying. Inshort if you are really capable of handling this transaction,  you should adhere to my instructions and work with me. I told you I am broke, yes I am....I know why I ran out of money now. Does not mean I am flatened....Solomon if you can not take care of your trip to Accra Ghana with security/
handling charges as I have said, it means nothing than you are not capable of handling this deal...I think 30% of US$25.5 million I offers is not peanut and you have to proof that you are capable of handling it.
God bless.
Capt. Godwin Simon.

At this point Solomon had realized that it was a scam. He did not the "captain" any money, and he stopped all contact with him.

The captains emails were not sent from Liberia, but from Togo. Many scammers operate from this country.
