I love these emails that seem to be spamming the world about the millions of dollars I have waiting in a Swiss bank account somewhere if I just supply my name, number and address. This one tops the charts. Using God to dupe the masses in new and ingenious ways. Because if I’m going to get an inheritance from some old lady I’m going to use it to do God’s will. I guess you can’t expect con artists to do background checks on their email lists…
Without further ado, here’s the email (enjoy) :)
My name is Mrs. Elena Tan. I am a dying woman who had decided to donate what I have to you. I am 59 years old and was diagnosed for cancer about 2 years ago, immediately after the death of my husband, who had left me everything he worked for. I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to you for the good work of God, rather than allowing my relatives to use my husband's hard earned funds ungodly. I have asked God to forgive me all my sins and i believe he has because He is a merciful God.
I will be going in for an operation, and i pray that i survive the operation. I have decided to WILL/donate the sum of $10,500,000.00.(Ten million five hundred thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the lord, and to help the motherless, less privileged and also for the assistance of the widows. At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls, due to the fact that my relatives are around me and i have been restricted by my doctor from taking telephone calls because i deserve all the rest i can get.Presently,I have informed my lawyer about my decision in WILLING this fund to you. I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.
Kindly Contact my lawyer through this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) or you can call his private Lin: +855976826769.If you are interested in carrying out this task, so that he can arrange the release of the funds ($10,500,000.00) to you.. My lawyer's name is Barrister Richard Lee . I know I have never met you but my mind tells me to do this, and i hope you act sincerely.
NB:I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplish,as I don't want anything that will Jeopardize my last wish, due to the fact that i do not want relatives or family members standing in the way of my last wish.
