Hello Dear

I was so much excited to read your mail and thanks so much for taking your time to write me in spite of your busy schedule.

I don't know where to start. I am new at this online thing so please understand if I am a little awkward at it. I am writing this message to you not for the fun of it, but because I am willing to give a chance and see what happen between us.

Let me start by saying that I thank God for knowing you. As you may have known, the fountain of any Friendship / relationship must spring up in the mind. It is very important for me to express to you how much i really wish to keep our friendship and to see where it will lead us to. I wish I could do this in person while gazing into your eyes,but since we are physically separated by little distance, this expression must come in the form of letters such as this.

To me, you are first of all my friend and then...... something more greater in the near future..... God willing. To be honest with you, I am really short of words here, but one thing I do know is that I have the arms to give you a hug, ears to listen to whatever you want to talk about, and I have a heart; a heart that is aching to see your smile. I would like to use this opportunity to say...I am delighted to have met you

"TRUE LOVE

#239698 by mariko Sun Mar 01, 2015 8:13 am

Am so happy to read your message and am just wishing that i was with you right now but so bad that we are separated by distance but i want you to know that no matter the distance you are always in my heart.... Yes! Distance doesn't permit the action to be seen, rather, words convey the feelings when distance hinders. No matter the distance that separates us now, I can assure you that this gap will be bridged as we really get to know each other. As the saying goes: "True Love and Friendship knows no boundaries and no distance; miles and obstacles mean absolutely nothing in the face of love" Though miles may lie between us right now, we'll never be apart forever, for friendship doesn't count the miles, it's measured by the heart.

Now that dishonesty and disbelieve seems to be taking over our souls these days, to know there are people like you makes all the problems look smaller. It’s great to be your friend and to be able to look into the future and see a mix of serenity and hope. This fairly recent friendship is something I consider to be sacred already. It makes me have faith again in some simple but fundamental human values which sometimes; for the lack of practice, we swipe under the carpets of our memories and of our hearts. For me, this new friendship is precious and that’s why I intend to keep it till the end of my days. I believe we can achieve that, because I have faith in you and I have more and more faith in life and in the future. Those who have a friend like you fear nothing. Always bear in mind that my affection and true friendship will be yours forever.

Hello Baby

I understand what you are saying that we need to meet each other first before anything.... I don't know how to approach this with you on line, I have been fighting a battle within myself, my heart says I should tell you how I feel, but my head tells me not to be stupid that it would just cause damage to our friendship and that you wouldn't be interested.

I would like to open up my heart to you, but I may lack the skill, or I’m short for words, because my heart harbors so many good feelings towards you that the dictionary seems to short to express all this love..

I feel an immense and endless love for you. Immense because it’s almost impossible to measure it or compare it to anything you might now; endless because it reassures me that it will endure all summers, winters, springs and ages, and it will reach fall with the royal dignity of an oak tree.This immense love is all yours....I have no doubt you are the woman Heaven has made especially for me.

I wish that you were here or that I were there, or that we were together anywhere. How I wish I could be there with you, but distance has kept us apart. Apart physically, but in spirit, you are always in my heart. Friendship which has been tested by distance and obstacles, and has passed......that is true friendship. The test of true friendship is not when we are together. It comes when we are not together and realize that despite the distance, thoughts and feelings are still there. I just wish you could see how much you mean to me. God has reason for allowing things to happen. Those who thank God even in every situation turn burden into blessings

Typical pirates --> Labuan story

Hello Dear

How are you ? We have been facing a big problem in the ship since last night. The captains of the ship decided to stop the ship in the middle of the Ocean because there are pirates ahead of us and he warned us to keep our valuable properties safe.

The pirates are very dangerous group of people that Hijack passenger and cargo ship for ransom, they also steal money as well as valuable properties in the ship, in most cases they can kill.

I am really afraid and I do not know what to do, because I have all my valuables with me here inside the ship that i bought in India for my Au Gold business in Japan. Please, pray for me. The Captain has come up with an idea to sail the ship to Labaun island Malaysia and it's just few hours to the Labuan Island close to Malaysia. The captain is doing his best to get to the Labuan Island so that we can dispose our belongings as he have inquired that there is a secured security company there in Labuan Island were we can deposit our belongings.

Things are really tough for me here and I am afraid to lose my life and my hard earned money.I hope the captain will be able to move the ship to the Labuan Island and this is my first time to experience Pirate issue on the high sea. Please pray for us to arrived on the island safe

Next email approaching to money request scam plot.

Am sorry for not been able to write you on time because i was very busy after we arrived at the island as i needed to go down to the security company here in labuan island to find away to cargo the valuables with me out of this island to Japan .

Now I am worried with the valuables which I have with me here for my business in Japan..I would like to entrust it to you as my proposal.I tried to make arrangement with the security company to cargo them out of this island because i don't wanna take it with me back to the open sea ( international water ) as it's very dangerous because i don't intend losing my valuables to the pirate, The security company in Labuan Island, Malaysia said i need to have someone in Japan before they can deliver it to Japan since am not in Japan at the moment now, as they can not hold it for me in Japan until i return back. The biggest problem is that the only friends i have in Japan since i came there are all working as Marine and currently on the sea now for work assignment.

Meanwhile, I want to send my valuables as a consignment to you as the benefactor through a secured Security Company here in Labuan Island to keep it for me until i arrived.. I just hope we don't loss our lives in this danger.

The Security Company required the following information as stated below to enable them ship the consignment to you. Please, fill the information and send it to me as soon as possible to enable me rush back to their office because we can be asked to go back to the sea at anytime.

From Jim Peterson

Hello Dear.

Did the company inform you on which date and time they will deliver the box to you because its suppose to be 24hrs after they have completed the processing of the shipment.
I remember that they do ask me to back to their office the next day after i register the box with their office in your name and gave them the payment but i could not make it back to their office the next day since we had to go back to the ship in the mid night as we had information that the pirate was already out of the sea.

I hope they are not angry that i was not back to their office.?

Here is the unlocked code for the box.. Ax10569

Please keep the unlocked code safe from any one

stated below for quick delivery of your consignment to you and forward to
us a scanned copy of your Western Union Money Transfer payment slip for

The reason for the payment is due to the fact that Mr Jim Peterson didn't come
back to our office next day as we wanted to inform him about the payment and that
was the reason we inform him to come back to our office the next day because
the payment he made is for international delivery and custom charges in japan
but this payment is for the local Malaysia charges and without this payment the
Malaysia custom will not allow your box to go through Malaysia airport to japan.

Thanks so much for your message and i hope you explain to the company the reason that i could not return back to their office as we have to return back to the ship and i hope you do help me apologize to them too.

I did not call you because i cannot call out of here as we are on the ocean and the only thing i can do is to connect my phone to the ship network and get connected to wifi to browse through email but there is no phone network here because am not in the range between japan phone network.

The call most be from the company so you can as well call them back as you already have their number on the previous message.
