A friend of mine msg. me on facebook & told me facebook had some sort of random drawings & he won $120,000. He said when they delivered his money he saw my name on their list & asked if I had gotten mine yet. I said no & he txt me their phone # so I could see if I was on their list. I did & they said I was. They sent me a form to fill out, which I did & then they said I had to send them $1500.00 for taxes & fees. My friend said he got the same thing & he sent them the money & got his. So I did the same thing except for me they came back & said the IRS had stopped & searched the fedex truck & found mine so now the IRS is holding up my winnings unless I send them $2500.00 to release my money. I told them I had to borrow to come up with the $1500 so I cannot pay this so I would like my money back. I also have the bank account I wired the money to if you would like that. That person was a woman named Carmen E. Mendez Rivera in Florida. If I had been able to wire the money by moneygram, it would have gone to a different person. I have that also.

I sent Steve Harvey a message, telling him tgat I was very sorry about the mix up on Miss Universe Pageant and that he need to stay strong, because everyone makes mistakes and fo you know why, BECAUSE we are human. They texted me back and said that I sound like I have God in you something like that, but I have the messages and they said that I was going to be the 5th person that he was going to bless before the year was put and then he texted me and said that, GOD had laid on his heart to give me nine thousand dollars and I had to send a 100.00 and I told him that I didn't have and he said that he would pay50.00 and I said thank you Jesus and they gave me the name and address to send the money and send them the MTCN NUMBER AND and copy of the receipt and later they sent me another message for me to send 150.00 and later on they told me to send anther 100.00 and everything will go through and this money was for the transfer of the money and the insurance, to keep from anything happening to the money before I I receive it. Theysent me me 6 of the numbers and they was supposed to send me the other numbers in the morning and I didn't receive anything this morning and I haven't heard nothing from them. I told them that I didn't have any money to send. Onermonlen Godswill--- Benin city, nigeria and I was wondering why Steve said that is company would be sending me the money.
