Kindly email me the confirmation # as soon as you are done so I can pick up funds here with it.

Let me know the cost of transfer too as I will be glad if refund all as soon as I'm back home.

Love, Angelica

 

 

Angelica, 

I am so glad you are all right. That had to be terrifying.

Here's what I can do--I can send $1000. I just need your agreement to do one thing.  

A Nigerian prince has $4 million in a US bank account and cannot get it out. He has assigned it to me but I need a co-signer.
