Here a piece of editorial meddling - the Count had not kept the original e-mail from the scammer. Not a problem! From the rest of the correspondence, we can guess that Ms. Nwanni opened with the Cancer letter, a generic version of which follows.

JOY NWANNI

From: The Scammer

I am the above named person from SomeCountry. I am married to Dr.Franklyn Scammer who worked with Some Other Country's Embassy in nigeria for eleven years before he died in the year 2000.We were married for twenty seven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

Before his death we were both born again christians. [Or Moslems. It depends on the day of the week.] When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of (Four Million six hundred thousand U.S.Dollars)with a commercial bank in the Netherlands.

Presently, this money is still with the bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the money or rather issue a letter of authorisation to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.

Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the pick an organ, any organ. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only [some number] months to live.

It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations. 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 collect the deposit and the interest accrued from the bank and distribute it accordingly.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard.

My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another person for this same purpose.

Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.

Hoping to hearing from you soon.

My dear woman,

I received your email with some trepidation and delight. I am a church going man myself, and was struck by your plight. Is there really nothing the doctors can do? 3 months should be sufficient time to get your affairs in order, but it must be very hard. I went through a number of years (14 to be exact) of very difficult times, but came out all right in the end.

What can I do to help?

Yours in Christ,

Edmund

My dear,

I had wanted to help you. I hope you have not become too ill to transact business. It would really be a shame for you not to be able to realize your dream.

With all urgency, please let me know what I can do to help you.

N/B: I tried to reply you from my old email address but the mails keep returning, However, this is a new yahoo address, always contact me through this new yahoo address.

Dear Edmund,

Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am very happy to get your prompt response and I want to thank you for replying so fast. Before we go futher, I deemed it wise to let you know my situation;

Like I said earlier, my protracted illness is getting worse which I am now living in the mercy of God. The main reason I want this money transferred out is mainly to take care of my son who I want to relocate to Europe or America and for God's work which I will let you know in due course.

I want you to give me your full names, address, and contact numbers so that I can submit them to the bank as the guardian of my son for the bank to transfer the money to you. The said sum was doposited with my son's name as the next of kin. Afte r I receive your next mail, I will elaborate more on my dreams.

Due to my status, I want everything concerning this transaction to be kept between me and your family. Reply to confirm that you received my message through this new email address.

God bless you

Mrs Joy Nwanni

Mrs. Nwanni,
Cavalry greeting to you also! Never give up, never surrender! I believe I can assist you, and I understand the necessity to complete this transaction in confidence.

You mention you are having email problems, and I can see the evidence of this mercurial formist - I received two emails from you that were nearly identical. One, however, did not contain your name in the title, it appeared to be cut off. This may mean that someone is monitoring your communications, and somehow tampering with them. Perhaps we need to be very careful about how we proceed.

What exactly is wrong with you? Have the doctors diagnost the implications of your disease through a modality that can be addressed? I certainly hope that you are cognizant of the implications that a shorter life span can have. My blessings go out to your family. My girlfriend, Mercedes (this is an ethnic name, her family is Catalan) also sends her best wishes and thoughts.

Per your request, I am sending my name and contact information (though I presume you already have my name). By the way, I have not had much contact with banks, and am not sure how this whole thing should work. Can you assist me in this, or do you have an advisor? I have an advisor, Mr. Villefort, who may help us well.

Here is my information: Edmund Dantes

Dear Edmund,

Thank you for your mail. I wll go to the bank to finalise everything on Monday. Like you asked, I do not know much about banks too but if we require help, the operations director of the bank is very friendly and I can alsways confide in him for advice.

Have a nice weekend

Mrs. Nwanni,

OK - I will wait for you to arrange things with your bank director on Monday. I have a checking and savings account at my local bank, please let me know if these will do, or if there is something else I need to do. I will be away from my email for some time this weekend, as I am planning to spend some time with my girlfriend (I mentioned Mercedes in my last email). There is some brigand, Ferdinand, that is trying to horn in and get her for himself, and I need to spend more time with her to fend off the bastard (pardon my rude words, but he is truly an evil person). I hope to ask Mercedes to marry me some day and the money that I may earn as part of this transaction may put me in a position of strength against this mans advances toward my love.

Take care, I hope you can make it to the bank on Monday, as I understand you are very ill.

My dear woman,

Whatever could I have said that would make you think I wanted you dead? Surely, the opposite is true! I need you very much alive! I hope that my emails are not being tampered with, as you indicated might happen because of the political situation and interference. Trust me, you are valued more than you understand. Please do not die just yet!

My confessor, the Abbe Farria, has consuled me to continue with this transaction as quickly as possible. The church is one of my favorite charities, and I would give a substantial sum of the money to them. I also have some major plans as to how these moneys can help me take revenge on my enemies. Ferdinand Mondego is the first to go. I will ruin him. Utterly.

Don't worry about the bank. I know they are being something of a pain, but that is what banks are all about. Regulations and process. We will get our problems straightened out as soon as possible, and I am sure we will complete the transaction this week.

Yours in faith,

Please stop everything! There seems to be a major problem.

Mrs. Nwanni stated that the funds to be transferred were $5,000,000.00. But, in your email below, it appears that the amount is $3,500,000.00 which is $1.5M short! I filled in $5M on the form, as that is the amount referrenced by Mrs. Nwanni.

Please clarify this immediately. I would not want Mrs. Nwanni to be bothered by this glitch. She is obviously on the edge and her health is not good. But, if someone has stolen $1.5M from her account, I don't see how I can keep this from her.

You have to send them your bank account particulars where they will transfer the money into.

Joyce,

Thank god you were able to clear that up in time. I was terrified for a little while. In your poor health, I did not want to break the bad news that the bank had "lost" $1.5M. I am still worried about the wire tapping and monitoring that you mentioned earlier. Perhaps whatever government entity has been watching you has gotten in to this transaction.

We must push to complete this transfer as soon as possible. Our only hope is to stay ahead of whomever is conspiring against us. And I must obtain my cut of the money as soon as possible in order for me to realize my plans. The forces that conspire against me WILL be destroyed, Ferdinand, Danglars, De Villefort.

There is a form which the bank wishes me to fill out. I filled it out once, but their instructions were incomprehensible and they have requested that I fill the form out again. I will give it another try, and report back to you. I hope we get this done in the next day or two.

I guess you have changed your mind on how the form should be filled out. Unfortunately, the one copy of the form I have has been written on, and I will need the form again to fill it out again.

Very good. The bank is obfuscating the whole process, and I am beginning to wonder if they are delaying this whole thing because they want to hang on to the money. If it is a small bank, this is a large deposit, and it may hurt them to lose the account.

So we will pursue this and provide them every little thing they want to make sure they can not delay or divert us. I hope your health holds up long enough. Don't let these little glitches get you down.

I saw my three enemies at the local coffee shop last night. They were discussing something closely, and and in secret. There is a conspiracy, I know it, but I will not allow them to prevail.

I have the form, and will fill it out and send it again immediately.

Of course, I am a simple seafaring man that has not had much experience with banks, but it still seems convoluted to me.

Mrs. Nwanni,

The bank has now referred me to some shyster that wants 2,600 Euros to "approve" this transaction. It is for some Judicial Approval.

If my plans for the undoing of my enemies were not so far along, I would refuse to pay this exorbitant amount. I suppose they have me over a barrel. How infamous. I must complete my plans, I must. My plans for Ferdinand are coming to fruition. Danglars is almost ruined, but I need to present a draw on his bank in order to put the last nail in the coffin. DeVillefort's family will soon feel the results of my machinations. There is no choice.

I will pay this fee, I just hope it is worth it.

Please stay alive a few more days. I want you to see this money transfer completed and you will also see the power it gives me to wield the righteous wrath of God. The formation of his avenging angel is almost complete.

Don't worry, and do not contact the bank. I will take care of this.

I apologize for my mistake on your name.

On the other hand, the Judicial Approval appears to cost almost 2,600 Euros. Can you please confirm that this fee is normal? Is it required? I will pay if necessary, but I would like you to confirm that it is a normal amount and that I am not being cheated. Is this a payoff to assure there are no problems in getting the money out of the country? If not, perhaps I can get a judge in this country to approve the transfer for a cheaper price.

Thanks for your advice.

In the meantime, I need to go to the bank and withdraw the money from my savings account, as the Wester Union place says they will only take cash.

Dear Edmund,

Thank you for your mail. I appreciate everything you are doing as I cannot afford that much because the little money left with me are all gone for my medication. Please whatever you spent will be given back to you after the transfer.

This judicial approval is very important because if we try to activate the account, we must surely quote the money with the police economy and that will warrant loosing 40% of the money to inheritance tax. I am aware that you are spending money with all the telephone calls and the rest, please take adquate records of your expenses.

My Little advice, you seem to be too serious in getting back at your friends, you have to be careful because I can see that they outnumber you, you can opress them but do not take any physical confrontation with them. If they really did you bad, God must surely pay them back. Bear in mind that the transfer is scheduled for Monday next week and from what I gathered if the money is transferred by Monday, it will be in your account by Friday.

Keep me posted

Thank you for your concern. However, these people are not my "friends" as you say. They have pretended to be my friends, but they are scheming and plotting behind my back to take my position, my liberty and my Woman.
I would never confront these people physically, there is no need for that. Your contact with me and the money I will be able to obtain started the process by which I can destroy these people. Ferdinand's reputation will be destroyed by revelation of his treachery in a past time of war. Danglars, the banker, will be financially ruined. Villefort, the legal icon, will be exposed as a cad and murderer.

The process of completing the money transfer is almost complete. The fee for the judicial approval has been sent, and the bank will have no more excuses to delay. Remember, I will act as your angel of mercy and goodness in making sure this money is put to good uses and in righting wrongs and injustice where ever I encounter it.

There is another means called moneygram, (www.moneygram.com) find out from their website to know the nearest agent around you and send the money to me.

Call your money back from the Xoom agent ans send it through Western union or Moneygram. You transfer is on Monday and I need to have the money inother to get the approval very early on monday morning. If you had sent the money through Western union, I would have collected it this morning.

Make the corrections

Mr. Richards,

Oh my god. They took the money. It is a lot of money, almost everything I have, and they said they would send it. And you are saying that they can not deliver it in Africa? I called them as soon as I received your email, but they were closed, it is 7:30 in the evening here and the store is not open. It has already been a day or two and I am not sure if I can stop the transaction I am not sure what to do. I will go down to the place first thing in the morning and see if I can talk to them and stop the transfer but i am not sure it is too late. please let me know if you receive the money, right away. please.

OK, I will do my best please let me know if you hear anything and I will tell you what I learn tomorrow.

Mr. Richards,

I am sorry not to get back to you sooner. The mail station place was closed on sunday. I spent the entire day fretting and constipating about the money. But I got to the place first thing this morning, and they said the money had not been mailed yet. I couldn't understand what they were doing but they said that because they don't operate in your country they sent the money to the closest place which was in South Africa, and then they would mail the money to you. This did not make any sense to me, as the whole point of using their service is to move money without using the mails, but they said because the money had not been mailed they could stop it.

So I got the money back from them, and I have it here in an envelope. What should I do now? I think maybe I should place it in a plain brown wrapper and send it to you directly at your address. That way there will be no confusion. I see no point in sending money through the wire to a different country where it will just be mailed, when I can mail it myself. The US postal service is probably better than any in south africa anyway, and it will get there faster if I just mail it.

I can get down to the post office this afternoon.

Best regards,
Edmund

Mr Edmund,

Thank God you recovered the money. Listen to me very carefully, I have used received money through western union over a thousand times, if you send it today I will send get today also I informed the bank of the delay. Africa is not like America were you can send money through mail, it will never get to me as there are corrupt officials. I told you two options, If the western union does not work, try the moneygram(www.moneygram.com)

Send it through either of these means. It do not want you to send money through post because it is not safe. The charge might be high but it s 100% reliable. When you go to send te mney, the will give you a secret question and anwser which I had already told you. Please follow my advice and do not mail money.

I will expect the transfer control numbers as soon as you send the money.

Dear Edmund,

How are you today? I called the bank this afternoon to find out about the transfer but they said that they did not receive the Judicial approval. What is it that you are not telling me. Your last mail stated that everything has been taken care of. Are you sure that you can handle this transcation?

Please keep me posted on the status. I will go for my check up tomorrow. I have a turmo and I want to see that this transfer is concluded before I go for mu operation. Please fine out from the man at the ministry why the Judicial approval did not get to the bank.

Joyce,

My heart goes out to you. You are obviously very, very sick. Is the tumor in your brain? It must be very painful.

My dear is there anything I can do for you or send to you to help you in your last days? There must be some small kindness that I can do that would make your life more enjoyable.

Would you mind sending me a picture? We have been conducting this business without my knowing what you look like, and it would be mightily encouraging to know more about you.

I think I have things straightened out at the bank now. I have sent the fee to the judicial approver, and the money should be on its way to me very soon. I hope I can use some of this money to help ease your suffering in some way. Again, is there anything I can do to help you?

Cliff,

God, what a horrible night. I had mailed the money to you in a plain brown wrapper, so that it would not attract attention. But your warning about the government struck home to me and I realized that such cash might be intercepted and stolen by the post office or corrupt officials. So I went to the postal box where I had mailed the envelope, and tried to get the package out. I think someone saw me, because the police came while I was trying to get the money back out. I explained what I was doing, and that the money was mine and I needed to get it, but they did not understand and kept arguing with me. They took me to the police station where I spent the whole night answering questions and defending myself. I have never been in a police station before and it was very frightening.

In the end they let me go (at about 4:00 am) but they refused to give the money back to me, saying that it would be held until the district attorney reviewed the case and verified that I could have the money back or if they would hold it as evidence if they prosecute me for some offence. So I must check with them again today or tomorrow to see if they will give the money back to me. For now I will sleep.

It is more important than ever for me to get the money from Mrs. Nwanni transfered, I need to move past this horrible time in my life.

I will inform you immediately when (if) I get the money back.

Dear Sir,

My name is John Nwanni, I am the son of Mrs Joyce Nwanni. I want to inform you that my mother was rushed to the hospital yesterday night and was admitted. She aske me to inform you of the situation and she demand to know the status of the transfer.

Yours sincerely,

John,

I appreciate your email to let me know what has happened to your kind mother. It is terrible news that she is in the hospital. She is not dead yet, is she? I have just been through a terrible experience myself but I am sure that it is nothing compared to the agony Joyce must be experiencing.

How old are you? I am so glad to finally hear from you. Your mother was talking about my becoming your guardian, but never gave me many details. Can you send a picture? Do you attend school? Are you planning to come to the US sometime soon? I would love to exchange emails with you - kind of like pen pals.

Tell your Mom not to worry about the money transfer, it is proceeding very well and will be complete by Friday. There was a bit of a hickup that slowed things down, but it is being straightened out.

Best regards,
Edmund

Cliff,

I met with a lawyer this morning to discuss the case. He believes that the district attorney will not press charges as I can prove the money I was trying to get out of the mail box was mine.

A bit of bad news, though. The lawyer says that in order to prove that the money was mine and get the police to release it, I will need to show some official document or identification for the addressee, which was you. Is there any way you can send some ID, or bill, or something to me which might be accepted by the court here showing that you are a real person and that the money was intended for you? I have an appointment with my lawyer and the police tomorrow, and if I had this documentation then, I believe I could get the money back right away.

Thanks for your understanding. This situation has taken a severe toll on my health and I hope to get it behind me as quickly as possible.

You do not need my particulars to claim your funds from whoever you claim that have it. You have acted like a fool from the onsett thingking that sending money through post was a wise idea. I hate sendning out my id for proof, you were directed to me by somebody so I believe that you can access my status from whomsoever that directed you. I will forward all your mails to the bank by tomorrow and let them know that you are not ready to transfer your funds.

See attachment for my id. I will be sending you another mail with my licence

Mr. Fofana,

As you can see, we can complete this transaction if I can retrieve the money from the police. My lawyer says this is possible but that to make sure we need to have some ID or affidavit from the receiver of the plain brown envelope. This was Mr. Richards, but he has stated in his message, which I forward, that he believes the identification should come from the person who referred me to him. That would be you. You can also see that the scan of his ID was incomplete, so I don't know if I can use it.

Can you provide me with some sort of ID or certificate so that I can make my case before the police? I think that with this and my lawyer with me I can retrieve the money.

I am very sorry to bother you, but as you see, it is at Mr. Richard's request. My meeting with the police is tomorrow, so I hope you can send this by first thing tomorrow morning.

Best regards,
Edmund Dantes

I saw your mail of yesterday and I told my mother about it. Do not contact the bank anymore or the lawyer as we have seen that you are are only interested in this money any nothing more. You wish my mother dead. I am the person that will stay with you and I have gone through your mails and see that you are a selfish man, all you care about is your enemies that you want to avenge.

Whoa. Bummer. This was really an interesting thread that I had hoped to keep going for a while. I thought the last bit about losing the money in a mail box was particularly fun.
Better luck with your next victim.
