email@example.com writes to me from Spain to tell me he is a merchant in Luxembourg. Do I believe him? No. Neither should you. This is an old scam – a badly written one where the writer claims their treatment has “defiled” all treatment. Clearly none of the scammers who are stupid enough to copy this scam have bothered to use a dictionary to find out what defiled means.
Ignore this scammer – who is just after your money.
Dear Friend. As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Charles Lionel ,a merchant in Luxembourg, I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone(not even myself)but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria,South America,Eastern Europe and Malaysia.Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of seven million euros 7,000,000,that I have with a finance/firm Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside 10% for you for your time and patience.please send a reply through this email address ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) with your full contact information for more private and confidential communication. yours truly, Mr Charles Lionel
