Dear Jim burr
Listen and read carefully, I found your contact from the world trade center and that is why I have decided to involve you in this transaction o.k, I am a woman of substance and of great importance to my nation and the society in general. I will not entertain any act of unserious ness from you in this transaction o.k.
You must take instructions from me at all time and for security reasons you will only communicate me only by my e-mail for now o.k. The business is This!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I, am Mrs Louisa Ejercitor Estrada, the wife of Mr Joseph Estrada the former president of Philippine located in the south East Asia. My husband was presently impeached from office by a backed uprising of mass demonstrators and senate. During my husband's regime as president of Philippine, I realized US$ 120.5 millions of dollars from various contract projects! I executed successfully. I had planed to invest this money in real estate and industrial production.
Now I have used diplomatic means in moving this money to a security company in (canada)as valuables, they do not know the contents of the boxes o.k. except you and I
Now if you agree to carry out this business, I will give to you the information of the security company and you will be there to clear the boxes o.k. There is no risk involved o.k, you will see the money for your self before any thing, then you will open an account there and pay in the money after you have cleared.
My husband is facing trails here with the Philippine government so my family's life style is restricted and all my phone and other contracts are monitored by the Philippine authority. I will offer you 25% of the total fund if you safely clear this money from the security company, you must keep this business secret AND confidential, not even your partner must know about this o.k until you are through with this business. Once again, I want you to be honest, and faithful, I shall delegate my Attorney to meet with you in (canada) on your arrival o.k.
So you must confirm your ticket to abroad immediately, and wait for my attorney's contact o.k, so confirm your ticket and after which I will give to you the contacts of the security company in abroad o.k.
I hope we will build a solid business relationship, waiting to read from you shortly o.k. Regards, and god bless us best regards
PLEASE GO THROUGH AND MAIL TO ME WERE YOU ARE NOT CLEAR I EXPECT YOUR QUICK REPLY
I have received your letter which did help to clarify matters somewhat, regarding the proposal to aid Mrs. Estrada, wife of the former President of the Phillipines, with security-sensitive financial transactions. I will be away attending to family matters for ten days and will not be using the Internet during that time. I suggest that between now and then you contact my business associate Jonathan Land, whom I believe will play a crucial role in the business deal you propose. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I EXPECT YOUR QUICK RESPOND. BEST REGARD
MR WILLAM STEWART
I AM AM ATTORNEY TO MRS ESTRADA THE WIFE OF THE FORMAL PRESIDENT OF PHILIPPINE.
Sorry for my delay in responding. I was quite busy out on a mission pitting two factions of ne'er-do-wells against each other to mutually destruct each other so the rest of the peaceful villagers would no longer live in fear of violence or extortion.
As Mr. Burr mentioned, I am his business associate. I am a Canadian samurai under his employ. After being a masterless ronin for so long, it pleased me greatly that Mr. Burr saw that I would be of use to him after hacking several of his competitors' arms off. He brought me into his office, fed me rice and Moosehead beer (a.k.a. Canadian sake), and we got along famously. He is my amicable friend, as i wish you to be.
From what he tells me, you are wishing to transport money located in Canada to a bank in the United States for financial reasons which I don't understand beyond the fact that I'll be getting a cut of Mr. Burr's share.
I will need to know where this money is, how many men guard it, and if there are any known booby traps I should be aware of. Then I will assess the situation, gather enough men to do the job right (I usually work with seven including myself)), and then proceed with the operation.
Those donut-gulping, bad coffee-chuging rent-a-mounties won't know what hit them, unless they perish slowly. Then they'll probably figure out that it was the searing blades of what will feel like a 120.5 million swords, a lash for every American dollar of yours they have in their possession.
Then we will transport the money safely and securely by rickshaw through an unprotected segment of the border into the U.S., and right up to the teller of Mr. Burr's bank. If the segment happens to be protected, we will unprotect it by striking down the Canadian border guards with the searing blades of 189.1 million swords, one for each Canadian dollar which we will be held responsible for (give or take, dependant on the currency exchange rate on the day of the mission).
So give me the information I require, and I will immediately get to work.
Canadian Samurai and Business Associate to James T. Burr.
