Hello Dear

         I want to thank you for the privilege you have given to me to be your friend. I hope all is moving marvelously well with you with a sound health  and mind, I’m really moved to write to you immediately I got your email ID.

           I don’t know how to begin but I must start from somewhere because a journey of so many miles must begin with a step and a bold one, I deemed it necessary and important that I should let you know why i requested for your email ID, its because sometimes in this life you may often get scared if you can deal with a relationship for what it stands for because a good number of people has really abused and discouraged so many from it despite all this,I still believe that good ones still exist.

            Seriously it is not all relationship that ends fine but the most important thing is where your faith is taking you to if its right or wrong,let me tell you a little bit about me, my faith is so strong and powerful beyond my control it guides me together with my instinct towards that special person that can make me happy beyond my imaginable dreams.

            I will briefly introduce myself to you. I am Fred Crowder living in Edinburgh, am 5:5 tall, black eyes, 80kg weight.

            I own a private firm that I inherited . I was born on 11th of april 1962  at Leicester, England there I grew up and had my educations, am seriously in search for the soul of my soul and a virtues woman. I will like to enlighten you more about my kind of person.

My hobbies are swimming, traveling and meeting people. I am too emotional and cannot stand heartbreak that is why I need a woman who will love me for real despite all my encounter with online frauds, still won’t give up the dream.

            I need a woman who will understand and take me for who I am. I strongly believe that we can make a good soul mate if we can be honest and straight forward to each other. I am a free and open minded person.I will be very happy to find a woman who will at least match 74% of this qualities.             Take good care of yourself dear. I will like to ask you a few questions before I stop, have you ever been to UK? What do you do at leisure? What are your hobbies and tell me about your dream man? I will be so glad to hear from you as soon as possible

Subject: Hello Dear


To be honest with you, am thrilled by your email, I really enjoy reading your emails, it was fascinating. Its being a while I felt this happy, am so excited about meeting you *(!) and I want to know you more. It feels so natural the way we got acquainted and I will say that my heart is rolling in with every single mail from you. It’s kind of hard for me to figure out what is it that is attracting me to you, maybe it is the combination of your sense of humour or something greater but whatever it is, I can sense its presence.

  I always feel wonderful and special each time I read from you. You know, all my life I have being longing so hard for someone who care to take the time to know me for who I am, and am so glad I found you.

           I consider myself a good judge of character and from what I have gathered about you, you seem nice and fun to be with. So I will like us to continue with our conversation so I will like to have your mobile number and pictures too. you can add me on viber or sms me with  +447510079588



*(!)  “am so excited about meeting you “Remember that you have not “met” someone until you have seen them face to face.  Scammers do this to develop some non existent bond.  Also note that Nigerians often say “am” instead of “I am”.

Subject: Re:

Hello honey

I have lived for a long time, responsible for and dependent upon no one, answering to no one and committed to no one except myself. During this period of my life, I considered the world mine for the taking and truly believed that I was living life to the fullest: Then, you came into the picture, and all of a sudden, I realized that I was deceiving myself.

I find that my life is not all that I thought it was. In fact, it is terribly lacking in many things, the foremost being love. Now, through some great fortune,

 To be honest, I never thought I would ever utter those words, but now, they come forth effortlessly and with great sincerity. I’ll be forever be grateful to you for showing me just how shallow my life was. At last, I have a chance to give it depth and purpose.

Until I hear from you, I remain totally yours in thought and spirit.

sweet heart,

I can’t believe it started from one little e-mail, who would’ve ever thought or believe I would’ve met my soul mate over the computer – definitely not me! Now I know I am going to marry you before someone else takes you from me because you are so unique . You make me feel so special, so loved. I have never known a love like this in all my life just through email, and it’s the only love I ever want to know. its not been long we met and am going crazy in love with you; you are best and my lover, Baby, you complete me. I will always love you, no matter what may come because I cannot survive without you… You are the one whom I trust and with whom I can share the most loving and most bitter experiences of life… I long for the time you will be in my arms and we will spend hours together….

The most important thing is that when one has a loving friend like you becoming a life partner, what can be greater than that… You are the one who can understand me, know me, be with me, help me, love me …

You will soon realize how strongly I talk from the bottom of my heart…. I promise to share all the burdens of life together and have a wonderful time together…. I promise to be a good and responsible partner and best father in future… Hope you have the same committed attitude towards me??? I love you my sweetheart….

I have so much to offer you and I have been holding the feelings deep inside my heart…. I have tried to open up a little but there is a lot more in the pool for you….

  Love Kiss



*(!) “Now I know I am going to marry you”.  This is another strange thing to say after 3 emails and never having seen the person they refer to . Don’t be fooled by such words, they are meaningless and often come from scammers.

Hi dear,

I called the courier company after reading the email you sent to me and

they explained everything to me

   They said that the package was put on hold because in transit point

In Malaysia, custom scanned the package and discovered the

Money I put inside the package and said it is against the shipment

Policy to put money inside a package so they said we have

To pay some charges for the penalty.

 I told them to open the package and take the money from it but they said it can not be done,

 because the package is registered in your name

And no body has the right to open a registered package, sweet

Remember that I told you that I will be at sea here in Canada,

I’m at sea now, so I can not do any transactions from here. My love

I want you to try everything you can to make the package to be delivered to you safely an as

As soon as possible for the package to be delivered to you

immediately. Write an email to the company and ask them how and when to

Pay this penalty.

  I’m very worried here and I can not concentrate on my work.

Please remember to inform me as soon as you receive the package OK. I

Love and love you so much love and I will always be there to


I love you so much, my wife. you have a good day.

Yours forever
