Please do tell if you think that this is another scam in the making or if I am just a cynical person. It sounds innocuous enough starting with an introduction using the Name above all names - Jesus Christ. What gives me hesitation to accede to his request is that I simply don't know him.
Plus, his address gives one pause - he is from Nigeria.
Glass Wall Shelving for Home Theater System
Not to be disparaging to our Nigerian friends, but Nigeria is particularly known for *ahem* confidence artists.
I have attached the copy of his request, please tell me what you think in the comments.
Dear Friends in Christ,
I greet you out there in Jesus Lovely name. I am the way, the truth and the life, no mancometh to the Father but by me John 14:6. Jesus Christ is our salvation! I was searching for astudy material when I came across your email and convinced you are a Christian.
Please do not be angry at this letter and undermine me because I am reaching you throughthe internet. God led me to your email and I know I’m blessed having to know you. I am amember of Living Faith Church. By His grace I’m a believer born again and blood bought(blood of Jesus). I am married with six children. I have a great passion doing the work of themaster especially now I work on my own having not to be disturbed like when I was working10 hours in the clerk office work.. I am not rich in this wordly riches but rich spiritually inChrist. I came to know Christ in 1984 and since then serve Him with commitment. I live in anarea where there is much hunger and crisis but the Lord keeps us from them all. Our churchis a small church with about thirty people. I am the church secretary as well as Adult Sundayschool teacher. As you can see I can speak and understand English well as we are Britishcolonised country.
I am writing you because I need your help for bibles. Bibles are costly here and manyChristians do not have bibles. Most get theirs from people in other countries when they canreach to other Christians there. My friend told me to go internet where I can get some to helpand I know God has directed me to you. My wife and I needs the super giant print bibleswhich has very large print and we need this due to reading difficulty. Please kindly send ustwo copies. Also I’m using this medium to request for additional 6 super giant print biblesfor the aged ones in the Sunday school class. king James Version would be preferable as wemostly use this during service. If other version is what you have we would appreciate them.The bibles could also be used bibles as long as the pages are correct we would use them. Allbibles are needed in English and please you can send them through registered or insured air-mail through post office. Post office EMS post is also very fast and safe. Please kindly helpus and sow this seed to our lives here. Where a seed is sown, harvest will surely come and itwill come to you. I would prayerfully wait to hear from you.
The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and begracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
In His service

My facebook friend, who is a Pastor, noted that there are better ways to send bibles to Africa, such as through http://www.bibles4africa.org/
