Subject: Matter of Urgency.

Dear Grace ,
Tragedy strikes on another of our own vessel after a sudden attack by
some deadly sea pirate at in the India Ocean , the sea rout to Asia .
I have been trying to call your phone but it's not been going.
“REPORTER “ say two crew members on board have been confirm dead and
the captain held hostage . Several Gun shots were fired for the past 3
hours, over $50m USD worth of crude oil was estimated as lose realized
from this attack
We have been mandated to sail through the Gulf of Thailand linking
Singapore to Northern Australia , which is another worst area for
piracy. I’m so scared because the life risk involved in this case is
50/50 chance of surviving any attacked from these deadly pirates.

My love, please pray hard for me in this situation.  I am carrying
some important valuables in this Ship which includes (My contract
Documents, money, and the Diamond Neck-chain set I bought as a
surprise for you). I normally carry money along with me because I buy
palm oil in tones from Australia and Indonesia and supply to a company
in Mexico I have 2yrs contract agreement with.
This is my first time to experience pirate problem.
I have made arrangement with a courier agent in the Labuan Island sea
port to deliver the package to you, including my business money for
safety reason.
Please call me on my UK mobile (+44 7031930120  ) immediately ... My
mobile is on roaming to receive your calls anytime, anywhere.
Also provide the below details information requested to receive the package.
*Your complete name :
*Your receiving address:
*A direct telephone number to reach you:

I will be coming to meet you within 14 days as soon as my ship arrive
Australia. I’ve always hope to meet you; I am looking forward to that
day with all my heart. I am preparing myself for you each day.
Imagining what you could do when you come to pick me from the port.
What would you do? Will you kiss me, I will be very shy at first, but
I will make the move to kiss you because I’m the man. No matter what,
you are for me and I will love you regardless anything. I hope to grow
old with you for the rest of my life. To celebrate good times with you
and support each other through the bad times.
Marriage is a journey that we will grow together through. We will
learn things about each other every day. We will not always have good
times but we will always love each other and work through our
problems. My love is forever. So I promise you forever. We will have
fun watching football games, taking walks, and watching movies. I look
forward to that day and until then; I will be counting the days left
and my heart full of love just for you.
 Please respond immediately
 Love always.
