Nigerian Scam in Shakespeare’s time

Dear esteemed friend,

I, the prince of Nigeria, do beseech thy assistance in a matter most pressing. It is with great urgency that I seek thy help in transferring a sum of money, a trifling amount in the grand scheme of things, to a safe and secure location.

If thou art willing to lend thy aid in this noble cause, thou shalt be handsomely rewarded with a generous bonus, a princely sum that shall far exceed thy wildest expectations.

I implore thee, do not hesitate in offering thy assistance. Time is of the essence and every moment counts.

I remain, thy devoted prince and servant,
