My attempt to recover my $9,000,000 after my death:

Dear Mr. Zeller,

We are writhing to know if it's true that you are DEAD? Because we received a notification from one MR. GERSHON SHAPIRO of USA stating that you are DEAD and that you have giving him the right to claim your funds. He stated you died on a CAR accident.

But if it happened we did not hear from you after 7days, then we say: MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE"

May the peace of the Lord be with you wherever you may be now.

Your Faithfully,
Mrs.Farida Waziri

Mrs. Waziri,

I am so sorry I did not respond to you more quickly. As you can see by the written words in front of you that I am NOT dead, and I declare this GERSHON SHAPIRO to be a scoundrel and a rake. DO NOT give him a dime!

I want to thank you for your kind Christian thoughts, especially the one in which you wonder where I am now.

By the way, has Mr. SHAPIRO paid that little $125 transfer fee for the $9,000,000? It's the least he could do for me, based on his deplorable behavior.

I hope it is not too late.

Your Faithfully,

Dane Zeller
