Be very careful in every transaction! Think many times because if somebody really wants to help you then it will not be the reverse thing!

John Smith is not what you think. He's gonna make you fall for him and then scam you till you get drained... you know what I mean... take away what you have bit by bit.

This is how it goes:

I have sent the gifts containing a Rose Flower and two teddy bears, with 12 of my pics and  the sum of $7,000 pounds sealed in the same  pack of the Rose Flower to enable you take care of your self ok, for I can imagine how hard you could be trying just to make a better life. Just accept this token from me.

Since there was no time to contact you any longer for your bank account details to do a bank transaction I had no option than to sealed the money in the same pack with the rose flower.

Watch out for Barrister John Paul and a James Stevens offering money scam as with Coris Cash Card through Coris Bank International... total scam and I fell for it. If it is indeed too good to believe it is not real. They prey on desperate people with little hope, empty your accounts and then card works for one $50 withdrawal then suddenly it is $1600 more... with just go borrow it and you can start your withdrawals right away. I was so desperate for help and am now more desperate with no where to turn.

Western Union and Money Gram know this and will still send money to them.
