An inheritance scam in action

A few days ago I received this scam, and decided to pursue it so I can show you how scams work.  You can read the full story by clicking on the link above.  You will see that the scammer ends up by asking to be sent £800 by Western Union.  If you make the mistake of sending the money, demands for even more will follow.

I am Mrs. Mary Parker an aging widow suffering from long time illness. I have the sum of 7.5 Million Pounds for you to use the fund for God’s work. Please if you would be able to use the funds for the Lord’s work, kindly reply me: Yours in the Lord, Mrs Mary Parker
