This scammer writes to me from India to tell me that s/he is lying in a hospital bed in Ireland. Maybe she had a miraculous recovery and decided to go travelling?  Or maybe the whole thing is just a fairy story.

All this scammer wants is your money, which he or she will happily take from you if you are foolish enough to start sending it to them.

Dear Friend,

I am Mrs. Stacy Russell from Dublin Ireland, married to Lloyd Russell who worked with Texaco Oil Company in Malaysia before he died in a ghastly motor accident on his way to a Board meeting.

My Husband and i were married but without any children. Since his death I decided not to re-marry and presently I am 76 Years old.

When my late husband was Alive he deposited the sum of $4.2 million dollars with a Bank in the UNITED KINGDOM.

Presently this money is still with the Bank and the management has been sending me mails as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the money or rather Issue a letter of authority to somebody to receive it on my behalf. I am presently in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment on Cancer of the lungs. I have lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live so I think the best thing to do is to use the money for charity purposes. I want a person who is trustworthy that I will make the beneficiary of my late Husband’s Fund deposited with the bank so that the person can get the money and utilize 95% to fund churches, orphanages and widows around the world.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall tell you what to do next and how to get in contact with the Bank. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here and Keep this contact confidential till such a time this funds get to your Custody. This is to ensure that nothing jeopardizes my last wish on Earth.

I am sending you this email right here in the hospital, i have dropped a note and directive with my doctor please contact him via email

I await your urgent reply. via


Mrs.Stacy Russell
