Same old story. “Mrs Brown” is a new Christian convert, her husband died in tragic circumstances, she is dying of cancer, she’s rich, she has no children and – guess what – she wants to give her money to you. To add that extra touch of authenticity she tells you that her money is in Nigeria – the well known home of scams.
Do you believer her? I hope not. She’s a scammer. She has no money to give you – she wants to take money from you by charging you fees. Delete the email and don’t reply.
GREETINGS MY BELOVED IN CHRIST. GREETING IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. I AM MRS GLORY BROWN, A WIDOW TO LATE THOMAS BROWN. I AM 70 YEARS OLD, I AM A NEW CHRISTAIN CONVERT, SUFFERING FROM LONG TIME CANCER OF THAE BREAST, FROM ALL INDICATION MY CONDITIONS IS REALLY DETERIORATING AND IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS THAT I WON’T LIVE MORE THAN SIX MONTHS, ACCORDING TO MY DOCTORS, THIS IS BECAUSE THE CANCER STAGE HAS GOTTEN TO A VERY BAD STAGE. MY LATE HUSBAND WAS KILLED DURING THE U.S. RAID AGAINST TERRORISM IN AFGHANISTAN, AND DURING THE PERIOD OF OUR MARRIAGE WE COULD’NT PRODUCE ANY CHILD.MY LATE HUSBAND WAS VERY WEALTHY AND AFTER HIS DEATH, I INHERITED ALL HIS BUSINESS AND WEALTH. THE DOCTORS HAS ADVISED ME THAT I MAY NOT LIVE FOR MORE THAN SIX MONTHS, SO I NOW DECIDED TO DEVIDE THE PART OF THIS WEALTH, TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHURCH IN AMERICA ASIA, AND EUROPE. I SELECTED YOU AFTER VISITING WEB SITE AND I PRAYED OVER IT. I AM WILLING TO DONATE THE SUM OF $12,000.000.00 U.S DOLLARS, TO THE LESS PRIVILEGED. PLEASE I WANT YOU TO NOTE THAT THIS FUND IS LYING IN A BANK IN NIGERIA.I HONESTLY PRAY THAT THIS MONEY,WHEN TRANSFERRED WILL BE USED FOR THE SAID PURPOSE, BECAUSE I HAVE COME TO FIND OUT THAT WEALTH ACQUISITION WITHOUT CHRIST IS VANITY.
