Firstly thanks to God who given his grace to me so that I escaped from this scammer named David Jimmy, a handsome man from Dublin, UK who worked for Maersk Shipping Line, UK (he told me so). He did send me BP 250.000 thru Pigeon Worldwide Express Service, ask me to keep it. When he told me about the sea pirates, I already knew what's gonna be.. I curious of it. The package doesn't come yet and no call from the Courier. I check on internet and found this forum and by reading all testimony here I more thankful that God saved me. I haven't replied his email since I am curious about his reason to send the money. God bless us all!

We are in a very serious problem here and need God intervention. The brain box of the ship is having a very serious problem and we are all confused here. The Tsunami in Japan is also affecting the ship and beside we just received information from the Signal house that there are sea pirates from Indonesia blocking the sea and they are about 312 KM away from us and the nearest place for this Ship to anchor is Laban Island somewhere in South Malaysia.

Honey as it is now, we are no longer safe because we fear the pirates attack because the ship is very slow now. We have called for a rescue team but we are yet to get a response from our headquarters. The captains of the Ship have announced that all passengers should offload their goods for another means of transportation as the SHIP will duck here for another 20 days until its safe to continue sailing. Honey my problem now is my valuable documents and my money which I kept in my cabin safe box. I do not want it stolen from me in the event of any attack. My plan was to use this money to buy Metal oil in drums from Australia and supply to a company in Mexico I already had contract agreement with.

Honey, as a Director of Operator in this Ship, it’s not possible for me to move along with the passenger because I have to take care of this ship until all GOODS/PRODUCT are completely discharged. Now there are so many security company stands at the sea shore and I am thinking of what to do?and at this time I need you to stand by me .. I don't know what to do now; I want to quickly send you the money and the documents so that you can help me to secure it in your place until I have the chance to make my trip and meet you soonest. I know we have not met each other but I TRUST you and give you my whole heart so that life can move straight with us and I know you will never disappoint or hurt me because we are already two in one flesh. I have learned to take life as it happens as I remember everything happens for a reason.

I will discussed with one of the security company here on the Sea. They will proceed delivery immediately I get a confirmation from you to assist me in receiving this money because there is no bank here in the high sea and I don't want to loose this money to sea pirates because I know how I suffered for it. Honey quickly forward to me your information as follows to enable me send the Documents/ money to you immediately through BRITISH AIRWAYS CARGO COMPANY LTD and lets it be confidential between me and you.

Your Full Name
Your House Address
Country
Phone number
Email Address

Please get back to me as soon as possible

My Dearest wife,

Thanks so much for your prayers your mail, I so much trust you and I know you will never disappoint/betray me and more so when we are already two in one flesh. Honey pray for me as the situation is getting a little bit better and we are dispatching other customers goods cos the rescue team have arrived. I have sent you the money. It is (£100,000) British pounds (One  hundred  thousand pounds) This is an independent security company in the sea shore here who are in charge of handling of freights and other consignments/shipments when there is problem with any ship in the sea. They told me they will contact you for the delivery when they arrive India by any moment from Wednesday because they have no office in Philippines except India.

I have never trusted anybody in my life to entrust such money in his/her hand, but I so much trust you. Honey, be careful with the money, it is part of the savings I made for 13 years. I sent it to you as my wife family personal effect and so the company is not aware of what is inside the shipment and so do not even tell them because I don't trust anybody except you, is only you that can open it as u received it.

Honey they will only as u of your identification proof may be working ID card or his international passport, to know if u are the right person to deliver the shipment to because they will demand it from u when they get to your country, before delivery to u. I have paid the International charges here in the ship to send the shipment to you. I also ask them if you will pay any charges there to receive it, but they told me you are only going to pay for local charges to enable their office in India deliver the shipment to you in your Address. I had wanted to pay but they told me that it has to be paid to their office in India because they don't know the exact amount because their office in India have to pay for India government tax and local bills.

Honey the Unlock code number is **7739** please keep it secret.I will join you very soon as soon as I am through with this problem and get to Australia. God helping us and please pray for me. I have not slept since yesterday and we are still working in the engine room and dispatching other customer valuable goods and document. Please honey, as soon as they deliver to you, open the box with the shipment code number (**7739**) and remove whatever you must have spent and keep the rest in your house till I come over to pick it up, be getting ready to relocate to united kingdom as soon as I finish my successful trip to Australia and Mexico and promise me u will take good care of me and my daughter just as I will take good care of u and your family. My wife please copy the shipment code number and keep it secret for safety reasons. Photostat your passport or your ID proof. They will need it from you also to prove you are the rightful recipient of the shipment. Honey pray for my safety so that I can overcome this problem by his grace.

We are still working very hard now to keep the ship floating until my office team arrive with the new brain box. The company is a diplomatic security company and nobody will question them until they get to your destination and so do not fear for I will never put you and your family into trouble. Please my wife call me i want to hear your voice I cannot call out cos of the sea current and low recharge on my phone, I await your call and your mail.

Love you and miss u so much God bless you for your assistance.

From your husband
Rawat.

Well I'm sorry if you've got that impression, I really wanted to help you, but I want to be sure that I'm helping the right person, I'm just wandering... you managed to take picture of your shipment and the airway bill... but you cannot manage to take picture of yourself... I hope you understand if I got some doubt there's a lot of Facebook scam... you've got to give me some proof to continue trusting you... I wanted to see your face boarded in the ship, of course you have some breaktime to do that right? Sorry but honestly I begin to doubt you because you are always avoiding my request to have your picture here... please show me something that will gain my trust in you, thanks darling, take care of yourself,

He wrote me but when he told me about the island, I looked up and found emails, all like he sent me. So I decided to shut him off. His picture has him in front of bike. Take care. He sounds so good.
