    Dear Beloved in Christ,

    It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, having known the truth;I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for Witness of God & his mercies and glory upon my life. I am Mrs. Sheila Johnson the wife of Mr. Harold Johnson; my husband worked With the Chevron/Texaco in Kenya for twenty years before he died in the year 2005.We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my Matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$3.5M. (Three Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Bank in Europe. Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over. Presently, I'm in a hospital in Kenya where I have been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations anywhere in the World. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus {14 VS 14} says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless voice and presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of my attorney who is in Europe as he will be the one to assist you in laying claims for these funds.

    Your Sister in Christ,
    Mrs. Sheila Johnson

    Every now and again you see some old person who has fell for this scam.
    esq3585
    At some point during the fraud, the criminals will attempt to have the victim travel to Nigeria or a bordering country to finalize the contract, money transfer, or other transaction. If the victim appears reluctant to go to Nigeria, the criminals will suggest a neutral country where an AFF team, unbeknownst to the victim, is already established. The AFF team will not target a victim in the victim’s own country where they have established roots and can easily check on the validity of the scam.
    Travel to Nigeria

    In some instances, prior to coming to Nigeria, the criminals will tell a victim to bring expensive watches, pens, and men’s suits as “gifts.” Proceeds from these items are, of course, kept by the criminals.

    The criminals may tell the victim that a visa is not required to enter Nigeria, or a visa has been arranged to be issued upon arrival. Without exception, a valid Nigerian visa is required for entry and departure, and airport visas are not available. Travel to abroad should never be undertaken without first verifying the bona fides of a company or business partners.

    If a victim meets the criminals in a bordering country, the victim may find that he or she still must travel to Lagos. Entry without a visa, gives
    the criminals leverage over the victim and leads to other forms of extortion. Once in Lagos, the victim will be housed in one of the many small hotels (euphemistically known as “419” hotels), located primarily around Murtala Muhammad Airport.

    At this point, the victim is totally immersed in the scam, and the criminals have total control over the victim’s every move. The victim is taken to meetings with criminals posing as Nigerian Government officials, or possibly even corrupt real government officials, to finalize the deal. The meetings can take place in government offices or
    annexes that are “rented” by the criminals or in a office that is setup to resemble a government office. These offices are often located near government buildings to add authenticity to the fraud.

    If the victim is sufficiently duped by this elaborate ruse, he or she returns home unharmed and the scam continues. However, if the victim decides not to pay additional payments and/or sign a contract, the victim will be subjected to threats and physical abuse until he or she arranges for more payments.
    Travel to a Neutral Country

    If the victim is reluctant to go to Nigeria, the criminals will suggest a neutral country where a team is already established. The victim will be requested to provide them with his or her flight itinerary and the name of the hotel he or she will be staying.

    This is the first step in controlling the victim’s movements during the scam. Operating under the guise that the business contacts are in Nigeria, the criminals will have the victim send roundtrip airline tickets from Lagos to the neutral country for face-to-face meetings with business contacts. The victim is also requested to reserve hotel rooms in his or her name for the contacts. The hotel rooms are never in the
    same hotel as the victim’s. The criminals will cash the airline tickets, and use the hotel rooms, which are reserved under the name of a legitimate business person, or his or her company, in other scams or sell to another AFF criminals.

    Surprisingly, nine out of ten victims comply with this request.

    Meetings will be setup in areas of the city unfamiliar to the victim. To keep the victim off balance and allow the criminals time to conduct countersurveillance, the criminals will schedule and cancel a number of meetings with the victim.

    If the victim decides not to pursue the “deal” or at some point during a scam, the victim stops paying, the criminals will not walk away from the victim. They will attempt to continue the fraud or try a different fraud using various ruses.

    The AFF criminals might pose as Nigerian Government officials attempting to get the victim’s money back or try to convince the victim that they are the legitimate government officials and the other men he or she dealt with were frauds.
    How to Recognize the AFF Scam

    All AFF proposals share a common thread. The proposals are unsolicited, emphasize the urgency and confidentiality of the deal, and require the victim to pay various government and legal fees and taxes before receiving what turns out to be nonexistent money.
