Yawn.  You know the story of this one.  “Mrs Tan” is a) dying, b) a widow, c) rich d) has found religion and e) just wants to leave all her money to me – or you.  “Mrs Tan” is a scammer – who wants to take money from you by charging you fees.  Delete the email and don’t reply.  She’s alive and well and waiting to scam you.

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 ( or you can call his private Lin:( +855976127307).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 dothis, and i hope you act sincerely.
NB:I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is complished,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.
Thank you and God bless you. Elena Tan.

    I received this email today. I feel sorry for those who fall for this. Many people are suffering from loss of income right now and will almost try anything to get ahead. I can’t believe they would use God’s name in vain like this. I know they will get their punishment in the END!

    Just got the email! I felt sorry for this poor dying woman who took one of her last few days to search through email addresses throughout the world to select mine! For Godsakes, what would they think off next? I couldn’t even read the large amount of money she was going to send. Even if it was true, I don’t want my bank to be informing maony laundering law enforcers! Thank God for the internet!
