God bless you and thanks,
Hope you well today? Happy to meet you. I got your contact via this site, I seriously have interest to invest on a profitable business in your country, the money I want to invest was acquired from my church member, and then I was his financial adviser. The amount to invest is ($14.5 million US dollars) presently, but I’m the present Catholic Church leader in my parish, if you will like to assist me as a partner, you must have the fear of God? kindly indicate your interest, and all other details relating to the funds will be revealed to you as we progress on. Confidentiality contact my direct e-mail address (revchris23@yahoo.com or jesusislord956@gmail.com) also indicate your direct telephone number, when replying this mail, God will guide us and with good health Amen,
God bless you and your family,
Rev, Chris Madurai Okon.

Speedy, sounds like you're missing out. 14 million dollars! This offer is almost as enticing as Amex Personal Plat being FYF.

Got two messages in the early 6am timeframe. Noticed the banned title under user ID when I opened one message. Thanks for prompt action, @Mars2012 .

False positive rate. If you still respond after so many red flags, you are more likely become victim. So by doing this, scammers reduce false positive rate
