In this email, the scammer introduces another character as part of the scam:
I Guess you are going great.
I'm very sorry that i could not reply your mail in time i was very busy in office with Hope Worldwide,
I got some gifts and items from the organization, your thought just came in my mind and I decided to to send some to you as presents.Actually i do not have need for some of these items so i felt they might be useful to you. And also to register in your heart that I came first amongst your friends.
I sent the gift through our chief protocol My friend, Dr. Christopher Johnson as he went back to the Gambia with his family for Holiday yesterday after participating in a party we held here and I gave him the gift package to deliver to you.
When he arrives there since you didn't supply me with your postal address and I couldn't wait for you to do that now coz I am on my way to Haiti Hope Worldwide Aid support to Haiti.
I believe where the Prof Johnson Christopher is residing (the Gambia )might be closer to you or your residence country. You should contact him via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and if possible discuss with him on phone:+2207324140
regarding how to receive your gilt package and you should send him your home Address and telephone number to him OK.
Please don't laugh at me when you receive the pack, I know it isn't much but I sent it from my innermost heart and belief you gonna appreciate everything inside the package coz it is coming from a special friend and in a special way.
I know that you will be in need of these item in one way or the other. The content of the pack are a 4 Toshiba laptops computer, 6 ip-phones, AN ENVELOPE, Video Camera and some jewelries. I packed everything in a medium carton and the Chief Protocol accepted to deliver it to you coz he didn't travel with much luggage of his own when he was traveling . Open the packet of one the laptop to bring out the envelop which I put inside, it contains some of my recent photos and that of my family members and a surprise gift which I don't want to disclose to you till you see it, leaving it at home my brother will do away with then OK.
Update me when you receive it, so I will be aware.Please when you received it, you should not sell any of this gift, its free i received from Hope Worldwide,and it free i am sending it to you so you did as well give to others free.
I will see how i can make a request for you as a volunteer in this organization if you would be interested.I will get to you when i come back.
Yours truly,from ROSELYN.
