My Butterfly Guy

You may have heard about this bait from various newspaper articles recently.

This was one of the very first baits I tried, and I think every baiter has a go at the church bait. So, without further ado.. The Narudeen Al-Islam Society meets The Church of the Sacred Butterfly. There is some audio that goes with this bait, and it is kinda funny stuff, in the context of the bait.. :) This bait ran for some time - it began on the 16th of November 2004 and ran till the 21st of March 2005 - but the Chief still calls from time to time, I think he still thinks the money is there and he can get it eventually.. ;)

Emails from Narudeen are in this colour text. Emails from Sister Anukah are in this colour text. Narratives are in this colour.

And so we're off, the Sheik has made this mistake of emailing a scambaiter! Character Sister Anukah gets back to him.

My thanks for your very interesting email. I would dearly love to help you however my ministry forbids me from entering any business deal with partners who are not part of our faith. I am sorry but there is nothing more I can do for you. If you ever decide to join our faith then of course I could help you both with my experience and financial support. Our church is very helpful to many Christians the world over - and I have travelled to many locations - in Africa, in South America, in Australia and to Europe as a part of our worldwide ministry. I wish you well in your endeavour my sister in Christ. Blessings, Sister Anukah Boneham Financial Development - Holy Church of The Sacred Butterfly. PO Box 2226 San Diego CA 92192 Phone - Fax :

So a quick lesson about church scambaiting - you need to give them a reason to convert to your religion. The general idea with this kind of bait is that there is some procedure they must go through in order to be a member of your church and be sent the money. The signature block at the bottom of Sister Anukah's emails is always the same so I won't bother putting that in here again.

We show our sincere appreciation to you and your organisation for at least showing responses and concerned to our request. Though , Islamically and according to Quran chapter (Surat Mariam) i.e about Mary (Mother Of Jesus) and Jesus Christ, we Muslim believe that God says we should believe HIM (God) and all the Prophets i.e Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Adam, Prophet Muhammed e.t.c. So, we are all one in the presence of God according to the five pillars of Islam. We surely believes in Christ. That is why we send our request to people of God, that we know has God fearing and also help the work the God financially, spiritually. We can equally link up Muslim programme with your organisation in order to proclaimed Love,unity and peace here on earth and thereafter. We look forward to hear from you soon. God bless. Chief Mission Fadilak Sheik Suleiman B.S

What's the B.S supposed to mean? I can think of a few things it could mean.. ;) male cow dung perhaps?

Dear Fellow Friends of Religion, Bless you for your prompt reply and may the lord God almighty send you many blessings (Amen). My friend, it is true that all Christians are one before God, but I can only trust those of my faith. It is quite easy to join my faith and I now discuss the procedure if you would like to do business with me. Of course you will have to prove your commitment to our ministry. This will require you to send us a photograph of yourself showing part of the commitment ceremony that we will require (this is very simple), and you will also have to sign our Order of The Sacred Butterfly induction agreement form. The agreement form is very simple to fill out. If you are in agreement to our terms above, please signify it to us as soon as possible and I shall arrange to give you the complete instructions for the photograph and agreement form. As soon as you have been inducted to our order then we can proceed with your business proposition immediately. We would also send you some money to assist you in the propogation of our religion in your area. $200,000 is the usual amount we send to inductees in areas where we do not already have a church. If you wish to discuss the options via telephone, you are most welcome to call me on the below number. Blessings, Sister Anukah Boneham The Holy Order of the Sacred Butterfly

$200,000! I reckon he would do just about anything for $200,000, right? :) He certainly seems excited in his next email to Sister Anukah.

Dear Sister in Christ, Assalamaleikum Waramotulahi Wabarakatuhu Peace and blessing of Allah be upon you and your ministry. We quite received your reply and we are grateful. Meanwhile, our religion does not forbid anything in relating with God's work accordance. Though we have discussed on our round table to God Almighty and we are ready to join your ministry to fulfill and work together as one religion partnership as God's fearing one. It's quite obvious that generatiion of Islam and Christianity came out from Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) who refers to as father all nations.He had wives and two sons, named Isaac and Ismail that translated to Christianity and Muslim. God said in the Holy Quran and Holy Bible that help those that cries for help in his name and that we should help His work. Moreso, Our amis and objectives is to follow the right propagation law of Allah saying in the Holy Quran thatseek for help from him, I shall send his own kind of generous fearing ones to help. and abundant blessing shall rewarded back to the giver. Bible say givers never lack. We are not doing this as a means of BUSINESS not for the sake of transacting, but we are asking for help. We are Islamic scholar that move our motive beyond Islamic religion and equally have our strategies to care, love , hope , faith , peace and unity in relating both religions together as Christ is in Islam. However, we wish with your ministry's support, we will attained to the greatest expectation. Please help us and join the train of God fearing one that donate financially and materially. To our surprise, we just collected a gift from a body tagged Hectares of land etc. as we want to be transparancy and trustworthy, we shall give the analysis of all account we received or collected in our store. Special thanks and appreciation would be sent to those that show concern to us. As noted in your last mail about joining your ministry, what are the conditions,requirements and discussed procedure but not business. How do you want our commitment, please explain vividly. Do you want the cheif mission's photograph or group photograph? How do we sign your order of the Sacred Butterfly Induction agreement (form). Please send the complete instructions for the photograph and agreement form. Massalam. Chief Mission Fadilak Sheik Suleiman B.S

And the hook is firmly set in the Sheik's cheek. Now let's reel him in..

Dear Chief Mission, In reply to your questions - 1. If the group wishes to join our church, we would need them each to send their own form and photograph but you can do the photograph as a group if required. 2. The form is attached, and you simply print it out. Below are the complete instructions you requested, as well as more info about our church, and the most frequently asked questions. 1) Why is there an induction procedure? We have some induction procedures, like almost every church in the world today. Some churches require the baptism. Sister Maykbe, our founder, was terrified of the water, she never swam in her life and only took sponge baths, she would not get into a bath or shower. This is why she chose to use the painting on of the butterfly as the induction, rather than dunking people in possibly acidic water from the acid rain. 2) This money you want to send me what is it for? It is for the propogation of our ministry into your backyard. You have many butterflies in your country who do not yet know that they are able to fly. We have been doing a lot of work in many countries over the world, but as yet have not been able to establish an excellent ministry in your area. One reason for this is many churches focus on Africa as a place that needs their help, whereas we saw there was a great need in the Balkans and Serbia. Our churches in those areas are massive. In fact, most people in Serbia are a part of our church, 80% of the population. We have done very well in those countries but we recognise other countries need us to, and we are seeking people all over the world now to establish what we would call "satellite" churches from which we can launch butterflies into surrounding areas. 3) Why the name Butterfly? Butterflies come in many different shapes, colours, and species. Just like humans. The major reason it was chosen is that Sister Maykbe had a religious experience with a butterfly once, and also because she saw them as a symbol of beauty and greatness upon the Earth. Also, there are many things you can do with the butterfly for Church activities - the possibilities are endless. 4) What does this Church believe. Too many things to type in one email. Basically that God created the earth, that Butterflies are actually souls waiting for the coming of the Lord and that we are all good but can be tempted by the serpents. I can expand further on this subject if you wish, but I will leave it here for now and give you some general background as well as how to take the photographs. I will send the photographs and further instructions in other email as this came back to me as not fitting into your box when I sent it all together originally. Blessings, Sister Anukah Boneham The Holy Order of the Sacred Butterfly

And you can skip over this next large chunk of text if you want, it's just background info on the church. I'm sure the scammers eyes glazed over when he saw it, and he didn't read it either! ;) However I am a great fan of the bit in this color.

Our ministry was founded in 1947 by a wonderful lady by the name of Sister Bernice Maykbe (I have attached a photograph of her for your records). She spent many of her preaching years in Africa, spreading the holy gospel amongst the local people there. She was the first person male or female to promote Christian texts and beliefs to the Masai warrior tribe. The most famous account is when as a test she had to remove the top part of her clothes and paint the top half of her body and chest with the red Masai warpaint as a gesture of faith and belief to them so that they would accept her and trust her. She was almost immediately accepted by them and was one of the most trusted westerners known at that time. In her later years she returned to America and started her own ministry Holy Church of The Order of The Sacred Butterfly and was very active until her sad death in 2001. As a qualification to enter the Holy Church of The Order of Sacred Butterfly, all followers must go through the initiation procedure that Miss Maykbe made so famous. She decided to combine the two cultures in one simple ceremony - the body painting of the butterfly. Of course in these modern times, members do not have to paint their breast. They only need to make the symbol on their faces. My fellow Christians, this is what you will need to do in order to complete the church induction ceremony: You must paint the symbols of our church upon your face. So that you know exactly how the symbol must look, I have attached a photograph of four of our young inductees going through the procedure. Please use this picture to enable you to make the same marking on yourself. You may be as creative as you like, use whatever colors you feel speak your feelings about our religion. You can draw the butterfly in any of the ways shown in the photographs. If you are not an artist, this is ok, the Lord appreciates even the untalented, and will look upon your efforts with pleasure. If you use glitter, the Lord will bless you in many ways, including a once off payment from the Mariah Carey Glitter fund of $2000, sent to you as soon as we receive the photo! Mariah is a famous member of our church, anxious to promote the use of Glitter around the world. Next you will need to have a HIGH QUALITY photograph taken and sent it to us by email attachment. Once your photograph has been received we will then forward you the induction certificate. All this requires is your name and signature. Once you have signed and dated it, please send it back to me by email attachment. We then send you the Church Identity Card, which enables you entry to any of our churches. After that you will then be a full member of our beloved ministry and as well as being able to do business with you we can also offer financial help to you in the future if you ever need it. Our church is committed to helping any members in whatever way is possible. If you ever need money for charitable purposes, then you just need to contact us and quote your member number and we can arrange payments to you within 24 hours. We have many famous members of our church who are very generous with their financial donations, including Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton and several Fortune 500 CEO's. I look forward to welcoming you into our membership my fellow Christians. Blessings, Sister Anukah Boneham The Holy Order of the Sacred Butterfly

Also the photos which were sent with the email -

Dear Sister Anukah Boneham, Thanks so much for the accurate information about the induction and the attached registration form. We are making you to understand that we've understood everything therein and we will make sure everything is done in a normal way of the ministries rules and regulation and also finalised to be part of your ministries here in Nigeria. This would also be a fantastic and a thing of respect in the community, that your ministries will come through us in Nigeria. Sister Anukah. We are drawing your attention back to our request on the lunching ceremony which weis approaching on 11th December 2004. We will like you to know that this event has been scheduled and alot of prominent people has been invited to present in this actual said event "LUNCHING CEREMONY OF $ 500,000 ULTRAL MODERN BUILDING MOSQUE AND ARABIC TRAINNING CENTRE". As you know that this event can never be withdraw anymore. So now what will be your contribution financially for now in the area of the lunchung ceremony to be possible by D-day comes 11th December, 2004. We want this event to be an august one. So let see your quota of contribution to this event. We are assuring you that we would in be partnership by God grace with you (Insha- Allah) .We are so sorry for late reply. We will like to hear from you as soon as possible. We will appraciate your responses. Regards, Chief Mission Fadilak Sheik Suleiman B.S

Ah, bargaining and negotiation. Send us some money first, then we'll do what you want. Nice try, but no way. :)

Dear Chief Mission, As I have mentioned to you before, I can do nothing for you until we receive the forms and the pictures of you with the butterflies on your faces. How about this? If you can get us 10 new members - all with the forms and the butterfly painting with glitter as I have mentioned before to you, we will be happy to send to you the spare left over monies from our Mariah Carey Glitterani evening. We raised over $1 million that night, and so far have only spent $250,000 of it on expenses, so you would get $750,000 towards your cause. Mariah is the only member of our church who chose to wear the butterflies on her chest. I suppose when you are blessed by the lord as she is, you should make the most of it to gain new converts to the church. And it was a very successful fundraising evening. I enclose a picture of Mariah, from that evening, for your information. Please get back to me soonest if you would like the money for I will put it aside as going to you if you think you can become the members by that time. I hope the Lord is blessing you in many ways today! Sister Anukah Boneham The Holy Order of the Sacred Butterfly

This was an incredible find, and I found it after I started this bait too, how fortunate!

Dear Sister Anukah ,

We are grateful for the reply of yours to our last email.

what are the consequencies of the picture afterward?

How are you going to wire the money to us?

We ready to send the picture but let us know the consequency.
You can also get intouch with us through our Telephone number as follows: 2348052413800.

we shall be grateful to hear from you soon

Yours faithfully

Chief Mission

Hmm, how to explain the consequencies? ;) Well, you'll never get any money, and I'll get a good laugh, as well as a lot of other people! But Sister Anukah is an impatient woman..

> Dear Sister Anukah ,
> We are grateful for the reply of yours to our last email.
> what are the consequencies of the picture afterward?
The consequencies are very simple. You send me the photo, and I take them and make the church ID card with the picture for you. Then, you will be a full member of our church - as long as we have the forms for each member as well.
> How are you going to wire the money to us?
I have a contact at Western Union who is able to arrange this. Normally they would not allow transfers this large, but we are able to do it on behalf of our church, and have sent many millions around the world this way. You will need to specify a location (ie branch) where you are able to pick up the money, and it can be done.
> We ready to send the picture but let us know the consequency.
> You can also get intouch with us through our Telephone number as follows: 2348052413800.
The church is very rich, but we do not spend money on international phone calls. You are welcome to call me if you desire. I am ready to receive your call. Blessings, Sister Anukah Boneham The Holy Order of the Sacred Butterfly

Dear Sisiter Anukah,

Sorry for late reply it was due to lunching of the programme schedule we are dangling up and down to make it a successful d day. We are also grateful for your and in appraciation to meet up your demand immediately.
We are using this medium to let you know that we have make an arrangement on how to send the completed form and the picture to you and your ministry.
But we will like to make a request that we would only send the form at first and receive some part of the money to be assure of the trustworthy in the Lord, and Immiediately we receive the money we will send the full picture which will show our image and also display the diagram of the Holy Order Of The Sacred Butterfly.
We hope to see your reply Immediately and our completed form will be fax to you lastest this week. And we shall send the picture immidiately we receive your reply on our request.
Moreover, do you want passport photograph or full picture Photograph , Indicate?
We equally wish to launch the ministry of THE HOLY ORDER OF THE SACRED BUTTERFLY here in Nigeria as a new branch which will be well known and acquire the Higher Integrity, Loyalty, Caring, Peace, Love and Unity which the SACRED BUTTERFLY will be carry on the symbol.
Thanks and God bless.

You're kidding! You don't trust Sister Anukah that she's going to send the money? She's a Nun, for crying out loud! Well, again nice try but it's not going to fly..

Dear Chief, I am very sorry, I must follow the rules of the Church, you would understand being a part of the Church organisation yourself, that things must be done by the rules. So I apologise but if you cannot provide the photographs I cannot send the money. Full picture photographs are the best, so I can work with the image and cut the bits that I need for the photograph. I deeply apologise for the inconvenience, and we hope to have you as members of our church very soon. Blessings, Sister Anukah Boneham The Holy Order of the Sacred Butterfly

She's clearly starting to get a little.. annoyed.. perhaps.. ;)

Dear Sister Anukah, Thanks so much for your reply and we are making it known to you that we accurately understood everything therein attached. We would like to ask more questions on this particular dialog/ negotiation; kindly explain briefly on how to receive actual amount been named at the begining of the discussion to date i;e $200,000, $2,000 for picture and then $750,000 you said for the cause. in what amount would be ours after sending the completed form and the picture? please expantiate further. For how long would it take before receiving the said money after the completed form and picture ?specify. Are you sure that nothing negative would not happen after this or anything like spiritual accident to us to the picture we are going to send to you to God Almighty and Jesus Christ of Nazarreth. Please promise! We equally like to meet you in person and also like to first receive your full personal picture to see your high and well kindness, goodness, generous, caring and God fearing types you are. We will \highly appreciate to meet you and your member later in person by your invitation to the ministry. We look forward to hear from you soonest. your Regards, Chief Mission Fadilak Sheik Sulaiman B.S

Spiritual accidents? This is not a Satanic ritual. :) It's just a bit of face painting. But Sheik I am sure spiritual accidents are coming to you as a surprise as a result of you trying to scam people out of money. Sister Anukah can't help you with that.. ;)

Dear Chief Mission,
All very valid questions, however some of them you have asked previously. I am beginning to doubt your commitment to our ministry. Perhaps you have too much on your plate already with your own church. There are other people from your country sending me emails to my inbox every day, many of whom I have sent the forms and instructions to, and perhaps one of them is better equipped to handle the ministry and the money.

I will reply to them in the order and to make sure I do not miss any out I will leave your text here too. But let it be known the first prospective member to send me the completed forms and the photographs will receive the $750,000 that I have put aside for you at this time.

> We would like to ask more questions on this particular dialog/ negotiation; kindly explain briefly on how to receive actual amount been named at the begining of the discussion to date i;e $200,000, $2,000 for picture and then $750,000 you said for the cause. in what amount would be ours after sending the completed form and the picture? please expantiate further.

Ok. It is really very simple. If you want to start up a branch of our church in your area, we send the $200,000 for the ministry. The $2,000 for the picture is *only* if you use Glitter, as part of the Mariah Carey Glitter Fund. Normally there is no money for sending the picture but Mariah is anxious to promote the use of Glitter all over the world as a member of our church, and it fits in well with our Butterfly theme.

> For how long would it take before receiving the said money after the completed form and picture ?specify.

It depends on how you would like me to send it. I am able to, as I mentioned, send it through Western Union, and have done this before for other members of the church. It would be broken down into amounts of $50,000 and sent to a bank that you specify, where it would have been pre-arranged by Western Union. As soon as you can name a branch with address, I can start those wheels in motion.

> Are you sure that nothing negative would not happen after this or anything like spiritual accident to us to the picture we are going to send to you to God Almighty and Jesus Christ of Nazarreth. Please promise!

What do you mean, my child? I do not understand why you think anything negative would happen? It is not like I am asking you to join a cult, or something. I am not asking you to sacrifice animals or dance around naked in some bizzare cleansing ceremony.

> We equally like to meet you in person and also like to first receive your full personal picture to see your high and well kindness, goodness, generous, caring and God fearing types you are.

I do not have a current picture handy to send, it is on the ministry laptop, which has gone on retreat this week. I should have gone with it, but I have too many prospective members trying to join the church, so it was decided best for me to stay here.
I hope this answers your questions. Please hurry and decide if you want to join, as I have several people from your area who have already sent me the forms.
Sister Anukah Boneham
The Holy Order of the Sacred Butterfly

I look forwards to hear from soon.

Wow, a picture trophy already and we don't even have the forms yet. This is a little back to front. So the rule of scambaiting - when the lad sends you what you've been asking for, shut up! Say nothing for at least a week. And that's what Sister Anukah does. But the scammer keeps in touch -

24 hours later -
Dear Sister Anukah, Greetings to you in the Name oif Almighty Lord. How is the ministry out there, hope good. Its quite a time now I have not recieved your mail, hope nothing wrong, though in respect of the completed form i fax to you and the full scanned picture photograph.

So he gives me a call. I'm not American, by the way. I don't know how that accent thing happens. It just does. :) And I fill him in on what is wrong with the photos. Can you guess what is wrong with them? Well, he's NOT SMILING! 2 days after the above email from Butterfly Guy-

Dear Sister Anukah, Compliment of the season. Infact, it was a surprised mood that you received my form, phone and picture as requested which I fulfilled but I heard no respond from you, hope nothing wrong, let me know if there anything. Though if it was your last message that you made mentioned about "doubting of mind" please erased this and I'm quite interested in your ministry work and being I want to be a member and fulfill my obligation towards the achievement and the committement of the ministry here in Nigeria. I and my group have our plans and strategies to use in canvasing and to promote , and contribute our man power, quota to the development and success of the Holy order sacred butterfly ministry . even if you are negotiating with anybody in my country let me be an intermidiary between you and them.

Kindly , for Christ sake reply me. Merry Christ mas in advance and God bless you

Well of course he's god-fearing, and he should be considering he is a criminal. :) He calls again, then 5 days after the above email from Butterfly Guy he sends this -

Dear Sister Anukah, Compliment of the season to you out there and how is the ministries? I am mailling you to let you know that I'm such a serious minded and went over to resend the scanned completed forms and the new picture through email and why sending it this is message that was given by the root of your email : Undeliverable Address: Original Message Size: 709800* (bytes) Maximum Message Size: 512000 (bytes) Reason: The email you sent to the address specified above has been returned because it is larger than the limit placed by the account owner. The account owner may increase the limit * Note: Most email software encode attachments using methods that can increase the original size. For highly compressed binary data (such as image files), the encoding process can increase attachment size by more than 30%. This size increase occurs before the email enters the mail system, and is not in our control System Contact: I would like to hear how again you can help me to make this scanned forms and picture to enter your email in order to do the processing of it with the elders in the ministries. If it is possible to send me your fax number that is personal fax number it is ok by me as well. Becuase last time that I told you that I faxthe completed forms before and you make me to known that you did not received it. I would be highly grateful to hear from you. Thanks Sheik Fadilak Sulaiman B. S

Sister Anukah finally breaks her silence but she does not say much!

You will need to break them up and send one at a time.
Sister Anukah Boneham

He calls when he is having the photos taken. I have to explain what glitter is! And now the forms and the second lot of photos arrive!

But the pics are the icing on the cake. I have made these a little smaller than they came to me, they were huge! I have also put close ups of the face here in the original size I got them. Note the close resemblance to the image on the forms, the artist is very good!

I think he is trying to smile, it is just the paint is too thick! :)

Sheik, are you able to give me a number to contact you on? Preferably a landline? I need to speak with you.
Sister Anukah Boneham

Dear Sister,
Compliment , due to technical fault in Nigerian Nitel maintenance Office there was a problem with my landland for now, i would prefer to give u another direct mobile phone number which will intact effeftive communication.

Concerning your lenght and breadth measurement of your dress wear (Our Tradinational culture wear) which I promised you . Woud you send down the measurement and also the size of your shop . I want to dress you a beautiful angel which colleague will be impressed and equally thank God for meeting me whenever you coming to Nigeria nor I'm coming to United State for an visitation.
Remember, my birthday is 25th December, what is the processing or what next now?
Merry Chritmas and God bless you.

Yours Faithfully,

Fadilak Sheik Sulaiman B.S

Sister Anukah shuts up, again :) And she gets another lovely pic!

Dear Sister Anukah
Happy yale time and compliment of the season. Inrespective of the new picture you asked of me about the smiley on phone is done. I wish this should be okay for now and to proof my membership with the ID-card. Let me know the next step and processing of everything now.
During my conversation on the phone, the last question I asked you about which of money comes first , it's $2000 first the picture, $ 200,000 for inductee then $750,000 for Maria Carey quiltter fund, Explain to me ?
I have an idea about what you aske me on my account number, to make easier I can receive from you $4000 to $5000 which I can use to open an account here in Nigeria and it would make it easier for both side instead of western union money transfer. What i mean is this send me the picture fund via western union immediate also the text question and other question asked in the form filled.
Moreso, I have started convasing people a bit about the ministry which they are summisive to me, though I've not know your ministry mind maybe I should go ahead stretegies because I study marketing in one of the Nigerian University with my experience I market for the ministry in the Lord as well which would make us attain the greatest height in Nigeria for theministry development .
It's my nice time talking to you on phone . bless you. If I'm wealthy i would be butterfly that is my prayer everyday
looking forward to hear from you soonest.
happy new year in advance

Finally he's smiling! Mariah Carey, a quiltter? Hmm, I can't see it myself, she looks like she'd rather be doing something much more pr0nographic!


Instead, he calls Sister Anukah. And then there's a small Tsunami.

Dear Sister Anukah ,
Happy New year to you and the ministry. My Condolence message to the lost victim's families of the affected ones in the flooded incident. Though I equally have some Nigerian victims too that were affected I always remember them all in prayer for their soul rest in perfect peace on the right hand of the Almighty God.
What plans do you have for their families that were affected and what message so far do you have for the lost families? My programme and my plan so far is to establish good and intact relationship both here Nigeria and there in oversee. Already I have won many heart souls been preach too and converrted for the Holy order of the sacred butterfly but since i have not receive go ahead decision or support ideal from you I cannot anything now ( A tree can not make a forest) . I'm a graduate with Marketing experience wise which I can use my profession for God and the Ministry to turn alot of people to worship in the ministry in Nigeria. I have my skill to attain and achieve the aims and object for a ministry. Though we have alot of miniustries projects here in Nigeria, i.e Latter Rain Assembly, Redeemed Christian Church of God, Winners/Canal Land Ministry, Synagogue Church, Deeper Life ministry and also Christ Embassy which we can beat them all and also take them as a case study for any
project we want to establish on.
Now Let me ask you Sister, I continue calling on my mobile cell phone and I don't why the delay on handling the cash and you made mentioned of modalities on how to receive the money but still I continue checking my box no response but why? Remember about the Invitation Letter to United State Embassy I asked you on phone. Have you treated the picture with the elders to know if I'm qualify as a member and with my I D Card you said ealier to prove my membership. Let me know what is up.
I hope to hear a good reply from you soon. I wait to hear from you soon.
My regards and warmed greeting to the elders and the congragation and the ministry as well. May God continue to bless and be with everyone of us Amen.

I thought this was the end of the bait. I got what I wanted, and he got no money and was thinking Sister Anukah was ill. However, on the 18/03, almost two months since he last emailed me, he called and then sent this email

Hi Sister Anukah,
Quite a long time , infact I was amazed to had been talking with you on phone, though I was too happy to have been spoken with you again. Also I thought in my mind that you are not more concerned ot interested in our relationship anymore but since i could speak with you and you said I should mail you then thank God. Could I ask you this question, I want to know according to the instruction within the form have you treated the form and the picture because I had no reply anymore from the ministry which I sent everything about the requirement. Moreso let me know on which level to go now, are we still in the round table discussions on how to establish the ministry through us in Nigeria? (Yes or No). Already in addition I have too much pupils which I canvarse and converted for the ministry but don't me shame as in coward. you know this is God work we should not joke with it and if we can meet up with it there is reward from God Mighty. Assuming with the little i have financially and I
can see somebody to supportme I would have love to establish and invite you to see the master plan because I am a graduate professionally a Marketer with experience wise with my strategies I can get everything I want in a market or to convince my clients, which I would use for God's work. So let make a move and promptly.
I felt your illness but with God I can do suprisingly to help as in having your good health in good shape I have some remedies medication for you. If you agree for me to send my medication medicine you will appreciate using it and thank God having good health back. I can finance myself to send the medicine to you I just go ahead from you. I belt you a trial would confuse you.
How far you've discusse with brother Francis concerning my issue?
Have I qualify as member, also have you treated my picture and aplication form?
Let me see your personal picture and your dressing mesurement, I have a suprised package for you whicn you would love and laugh.
You made mentioned about the modalities on how to recieve the money transaction and invitation letter?
Are you sure, you are current my mail again because before Immediately I sent you mail you replied but I don;'t know now you delay? Let me know if anything wrong apart from health condition? I'm worried! but no shame on me.
Let me see your reply or you call me and let me know everything or anything you need from me. I miss you and God bless you . More grace to your elbow in Jesus name Amen.
Let me know everything about yourself, being at home or hospital I wish to know generally.
I wish to care for you for God sake.
My regards to everybody in the ministry including FATHER FRANCIS.
