    February2003. Until his death, late Rev. Dr. JOHN OKONKWO was a regional
    director in Nigeria with United Nations Refugees and humanitarian commission.
    A renowned PHILANTHROPIST, who has widely travelled and very good
    Christian of the Christian fellowship of Nigeria. A non denominational society.
    According to him he is giving you this amount because of your active
    involvement in the upliftment of Christian activities with its

    religion in Christ Jesus as the son of God.

    I like playing games with them. Since I use Vonage, I will create temporary virtual numbers as well as an alternate email address. I will pretend it is really hard to understand them, and ask the same questions over and over. After about 10 long winded phone calls, I will disconnect my virtual number and create another. Then they email saying something about my phone being disconnected, so I give them another and it starts all over.

    I pity their phone bills. When I get tired of messing with them, I disconnect my virtual numbers, and put a bounce on the email they have for me.

    Hope they are making lots of money to cover their long distance phone bills...lol
