Subject: Hello beloved, I hope my mail finds you well; I need your help.

My Beloved One.

Firstly, By way of introduction, my name is Ms. Linah Mohohlo from Botswana. I was the governor of the Bank of Botswana (1999-2016) you may kindly view the link and read about me. (https://www.rhinoconservationbotswana.com/team-linah-kelebogile-mohohlo/). I served in a number of operational and policy areas, including secretarial, human resource management, economic research and reserves management. Please I know this may come to you as a surprise because you do not know me but I sincerely need your assistance urgently because of my present health condition. This is the reason why I write to you on a personal level and through divine direction. It is my desire to have a genuine personal relationship with you.

I deposited the sum of US $10.5M (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars) with a Finance/bank presently in South Africa where I reside now. These funds came as a result of an over-invoiced contract which I executed with the Bank of Botswana. Though I am the person who approved this contract but I honestly never knew at the time that it had been over invoiced. To avoid any eyebrow raised on the over invoiced fund, I took the decision to deposit the fund in a safe account presently with the Standard Bank of South Africa.

I suffer from cancer and recently my Doctor informed me that due to my poor health condition I would not be able to stay alive past the next three months due to the cancer. Nonetheless what disturbs me mostly is the stroke I suffered. Having known my condition, I decided to donate these funds to an individual with a beautiful soul that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.

I only need your honesty to assure me that this funds will be used to fund any charitable organization around you; churches, Mosques, NGOs, orphanages, research centers or 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 gives, I took this decision because I have a child that will inherit a portion of this fund; but my son child cannot carry out this work alone. I therefore decided to use some of the money to work for God and leave some for my son to have a better future.

My only son is only just 15 years old now and having to grow up without a father, he has low maturity, hence the reason for me taking this bold decision to ask for your assistance to help me receive this fund and thus carry out my wish. I am not afraid of death as 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 would like you to reply me and tell me if you can help me with my wish. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you more information about the fund and hence the contact information of the Finance/bank where change of ownership will be processed to your favor to carry out my wish.

Ms. Linah Mohohlo and only Son Favor.

God’s favor is sufficient for me linahmohohlo15@gmail.com

    To: Victoria Medina,

    How are you and your family doing? Hope all is well. I am glad to inform you that I have been able to transfer my funds to Christ the Kings Church Zurich in Switzerland through the help of a Deacon in the Church named, Mr. Jack Robertson. He is a very good Man of God.

    Well, I just write to inform you that I left behind a token of US$100,000(One Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) for you in an escrow account with the bank (Standard Bank) who assisted us to get the funds transferred successfully from South Africa to the Church here in Switzerland. I write to you with a thankful heart. It’s just that I cannot forget how you are the very first person I contacted to help me. However, I must tell you that I appreciate your previous assistance just by you replying to me. I did appreciate that; hence my token gift of $100,000.00 to you.

    I know it is not your fault or rather your wish to back off on us in the transaction at that time, I understand it was simply because of some circumstances you could not control. Anyway, the Bible made us understand that blessed is the hand that gives, and I just want to say thank you the best way I can in this hard times that you will appreciate. My happiness is that I live a life of a worthy Christian and my last wish is accomplished as I wait to join the Lord. The deacon flew me to Switzerland after the transfer success. He thought it would be best I spend my final days in his care.
