That’s a really funny name for a priest
We do not know whether the humor in this solicitation is accidental or deliberate. It has no bearing one way or the other on its validity. It is a Fraud. Unlike many of its companions in our junk folder, it did have one bright shining moment.
Update: Mar 8, 2011
We’ve heard again from a slightly different Mr Victor Clement whose Priest resides at email@example.com. Otherwise it is the same letter except his signature does not thank us for our past effort.
Subject: CONTACT MY PRIEST FOR YOUR $5M.OOO.OOO.OO COMPENSATION PAYMENT FUND,
From: MR VICTOR CLEMENT.
To: undisclosed recipients:
Date Sent: 3/2/2011 12:07:24 AM
We begin with a strange amount of money. Five million dollars should be $5,000,000.00 not $5M.OOO.OOO.OO which is actually $5 with the word MOOOOOOOO following it if you ignore the dots. It is the letter “O” eight times not the number “0”.
Please accept my apology for not contacting you earlier before now due to my tight schedules. I am very happy to inform you about my success in getting that money under the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay; Presently I’m in London with the partners for some new projects with the money.
We rather like “earlier before now”, it possesses a strange duplicity often missing from normal conversation. We are supposed to be aware of that money, it seems, and the partners as well.
Contact my Priest in Lagos state, federal Republic of Nigeria, because I have left the instruction with him on your behalf and instructed him where to send the $5,000,000.00. without any further delay for your compensation.
So, since you’ve informed your priest where to send the money, why didn’t you just enclose this note in the envelope along with it? We’re done then, are we?
Remember that the $5,000,000.00. Is in draft, not cash, so you need to send to him your full Information where the draft/check will be posted/delivered. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much so feel free to get in touched with him. As at the time I was leaving Nigeria he was the only one I could trust with that kind of money, he is a very simple and understanding person. His name is Rev Father Dr Ugorji Email ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
So, you were exaggerating when you said you had told him where to send the money.
At this point, we are no longer sure who is having who on. The writer is most likely getting help from someone with his English.
He or she may just be harvesting names at random. We do not know. We strongly suspect that whoever it is didn’t bother to read the email address aloud.
Rev Father Dr Ugorji, when compacted for an email address, sounds like Rev Father Drug Orgy when read aloud. Coincidence? We were inclined to think not.
But to our surprise, we found that there is a Rev. Dr. Ugorji who is a bishop here. With apologies to the Bishop, it is a funny sounding name when written as above.
We are not sure how the good Bishop would feel if he knew our dear writer thought of him as being a very simple man.
NOTE: BELLOW IS THE REQUIRED INFORMATION YOU WILL SEND TO MY PRIEST:-
(1) YOUR FULL NAMES
(2) YOUR HOUSE ADDRESS
(3) YOUR DIRECT CELPHONE NUMBER
(4) YOUR COUNTRY ADDRESS
All requests for information must be shouted. We are surprised to find this information seems lacking given the previous statements to the contrary.
So feel free to get in touch with him and discuss with him how the amount will reach you. Please do let me know immediately you contact him to receive it, so that we can share the joy after all the suffering at that time.
We certainly will, $5,000,000 will be enough to fund an adequate celebration, we’re sure.
As at the moment, I am very busy here because of the projects which I and the new partner have at hand. Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the priest on your behalf to receive that money, so you get in touch with him and he will send the amount to you without any delay.
Which is it? Does the priest / bishop have the information or are we supposed to send it?
Here is his email address again ( email@example.com )
MR VICTOR CLEMENT.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PAST EFFORT.
We do not recall ever knowing a Mr. Victor Clement. We would certainly remember someone with whom we have transacted multi-million dollar deals.
No, once again, our hope of riches has been dashed against the rocks. We must steel our resolve therefor and commend Mr. Clement and the Rev Drug Orgy to the vast bit bucket were all such solicitations go when they die.
No, dear friends, this is a Fraud.
Join us next time when we present “There’s clearly no need to rush things” here at HowToSpotAFraud.com.
That is all.
