Subject: CAN YOU DO THIS ?
I am Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt MP. Leicester's first woman MP in 1997 when I was elected Labour MP for Leicester West, held a variety of top ranking roles in the Cabinet, including Cabinet Minister for Women and Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, and my last appointment was the Secretary of State for Health under Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom.
I actually got your contact info via your country's national directory and intend introducing a project that has to do with charity in your country and neighbouring countries around you.
Before my retirement, I personally made an over estimation, and stacked the sum of Six Million Three Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds which I totally intend for the purpose of charity and none other which will be supervised Attorney as he will also be the one in charge of securing these funds into your custody.
This transaction will result to you being paid a commission of 11% of the investment capital and the balance, distributed to charity organizations of your choice or reinvested and the net income, used for rehabilitating charity organization in and around your country through you/your agency annually for the period of five years or a little more. The last time I orchestrated this sort of Grant, the individual in Australia succeeded in successfully setting up three standard orphanage homes in less than a year. I have never been so proud of such a noble individual.
If you are willing to execute this Humanitarian Project, You must understand that I desire absolute confidentiality and professionalism on this issue.
Please respond urgently if you are interested as the fund are getting overdue, so I can equip you with the necessary details, along side my Attorney's contact information, so as to commence the transaction properly; on the other hand, if you are not, please let your intentions be known or better still, Kindly relent from replying this email.
You could get personal info. on me via the Parliament sites or on my official website, but do not try to contact me via any personal information you may lay your hands upon on the internet as almost all my contact info are connected to the British House of Parliament data base except the ones I personally sent to you; as I don't want our effort and my reputation, jeopardized.
Kindly send your response to this E-mail:
PATRICIA HEWITT MP.
FORMER SEC. OF STATE FOR HEALTH
233 OWEN WALK,
LONDON, SE37 88AQ
Not a bad effort by the Lads from Lagos, who appear to have almost got a long-overdue grip  on the English language. Has Ms Hewitt, we wonder, ever discussed orphanages over lunch with MARIAM ABACHA? ®
Thanks to Jeremy Garside for the charitable tip-off.
