Just hoping this email reaches you well, I'm sorry for this emergency and for not informing you about my urgent trip to London-United Kingdom,i came down here to United Kingdom for a short vacation . Everything was fine until I was attacked on my way back to the hotel, I wasn't hurt but I lost my money, bank cards, Cell phones and my bag in the course of this attack. I immediately contacted my bank in order to block my cards and also made a report at the nearest police station. I've been to the embassy and they are helping me with my documentation so i can fly out but I'm urgently in need of some money to pay for my hotel bills and my flight ticket home, will definitely REFUND as soon as back home.

Kindly let me know if you would be able to help me out so I can forward you the details required for a wire transfer.

waiting to hear back from you..

Thanks

Hello Its Ann

I'm writing this in pains. It is not my intension writing you but I have to, few day back my family and I made an unannounced trip to Istanbul, Turkey and really it was unannounced but unfortunately, things turn sour when we where robbed last night on our way back to the hotel where we lodged and all our cash, credit cards and cell phones were stolen, one of the robbers stab me at the back with a knife and am currently receiving treatments.

We've reported the incident to the embassy and the Police but to my dismay they seem not bothered...their response was just too casual. Our return flight leaves soon but I am out of cash to settle my hospital and hotel bills, Please I need you to loan me some money, I promise to refund you immediately i get back home. All i need is $1500... Please I can’t afford to miss my return flight back home, Please let me know if you can send me the money.

Am in pains here, need to return home for a proper medical check up.

Ann Higgins

Dear Rams,

The College Collaborative Networks at http://www.ccnets.org is now open for sign up (choose 'Fordham').

While a social network is for sharing of personal news and events, a college collaborative network is for sharing of resources (including data, knowledge and tools) among its members (faculty, staff, students and alumni). In the simplest case members can collaborate to create a comprehensive repository of resources. As specific needs arise further collaborations among individual members can spin off more collaborative networks.

With a free membership you are entitled to share, and contribute, resources in the network, and connect to other networks including various knowledge collaborative networks across campuses. You are also entitled to create your own collaborative networks of any kind so others can join.

We look forward to your participation!

Sincerely,
Jeff Kitson

Greetings in the Mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

With Due Respect and Humanity, I was compelled to write to you under a humanitarian ground, May the blessings of the most high God be upon you and grant you the wisdom to understand this situation and how much I need your help.

I am suffering from a long-time Colon Cancer, from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating, according to my doctors the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

This money came as a result of a payback contract between my husband and a Russian firm. The Russian partner returned my husband's own share.

I was married to late Dr.Ardwa Beneni,a contractor who worked with Oil company (PETROCI) for fifty-two years before he died in the year 2009, He died after a Cardiac Arteries Operation. Since after his death, I decided to fulfil vow we made together. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($4,500,000.00) in a Bank in Abidjan and the money is still there.
 
Recently, My Doctor told me about my condition due to my cancer problem and having known my condition. I have decided to handle over this money to a HONEST person, whether Moslem or Christian, group organization that will utilize this fund for the services of mankind, helping the motherless homes, orphans, widows, as desired by my late husband when he was alive.

 I took this decision because I don't have any child to inherit this fund, and I don't want this money to be used unwisely. I want you to always remember me in your daily prayers because of my upcoming Cancer Surgery, although I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.

 Write back to me as soon as possible because any delay in your reply will give me opportunity to look for another person for this same purpose, With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply, I shall give you other information’s on how you can receive this money from the bank. I will be glad to hear from you soon.


May God bless and keep us as we seek to serve him.


Yours.

From :Mrs Ednidora Beneni
