The scam

I HAVE been paid some ransom in advance to terminate you with some reasons listed to me by my employer.

It's someone I believe you call a friend.

I have followed you closely for a while now and have seen that you are innocent of the accusations he levelled against you.

I took pity on you, that is why I have made up my mind to help you if you are willing to help yourself.

I will arrange for us to see face to face, but before that, I need $10,000.

Do not arrange for the cops and if you play hard to get, it will be extended to your family.

Payment details will be provided for you to make a part payment of $6000 first, which will serve as guarantee that you are ready to co-operate, then I will post a copy of the video tape that contains his request for me to terminate you which will be enough evidence for you to take any legal action against him.

You will pay the balance of $4000 once you receive the tape.

Warning; do not contact the police, make sure you stay indoors once it is 7.30pm every day until this whole thing is sorted out. If you neglect any of these warnings, you will have yourself to blame.

You do not have much time, so get back to me immediately.
