Found Spam Love Haiku

How are you doing?
     Am looking for my soul mate.
Will hear from you soon?

I enjoy spending
     time in family circle and
talking with friends.

I am a widow
     to a late oil merchant
who now has cancer.

I want us to trust.
     We need to meet face-to-face.
Book flight to Ghana.

Partnership required.
     I entrant your utmost
reliance for this.

Write to you with tears
     in a sincere desire of
humble assistance.

I have a surprise!
     I am holding in my hand
the exquisite wine.
