Scam mail - Im the lord chosen one!

#1
I know these get posted a lot but this one grabbed my attention. Seemingly some little old lady in Africa thinks god has answered her prayers by giving her my e:mail. I think i prefer her version of things rather than drinking water from dead hubbies body making her dillusional.

Whatever is a devout atheist to do in such divine matters?


YOU ARE THE LORD CHOSEN ONE.

I sincerely apologize for not taking your permission before contacting you while also asking you to pardon my poor English, as I am half educated. It is rather unfortunate that I am writing this mail to you in deep tears while lying on a hospital bed due to chronic cancer of the lungs waiting for the time to pass unto eternal glory. My ordeal is quite complicated but I will appreciate it if you give a little time to hear me out.

First, I would like to start by introducing my self to you. I am Mrs. Rose Johnson from Cotonou, Republic of Benin in West Africa as stated above. I was born on the 7 th of April 1952 in a small village and grew up as a petty trader until I met my husband who was a Cocoa Trader. We got married and lived happily together but had no children. This never bothered us as we were good Christians and never blamed God for that.

Three years ago, I lost my husband in a motor accident while going on his trade. His death was the beginning of my unfortunate ordeal. I had to undergo a lot of ritual procedures based on tradition by his family members to find out if I had a hand in his death. Part of the ritual was being forced to drink water from his dead body. It is a common thing that happens to African Women.

This was not all as all properties belonging to him in my possession was taking away from me and was made an outcast. I lived alone for 3 years as a widow with serious agony while praying to the Lord to take charge. Unknown to his family members, my late husband had a total sum of $18, 000,000 USD (Eighteen Million United States Dollars) which was left secretly in a Bank. His lawyer who presently resides in the Nigeria Secretly revealed it to me.

Since I have no close family to give it to as I am the only daughter of my parents who died long ago and do not intend to give it to the family of my late husband, I thought it would be good to find someone reliable who could use the money to help the poor and needy hence my contacting you. I will appreciate if you utilize the funds properly as instructed.

Kindly get back to me as soon as possible so that I can provide you with contact information of the BANK in Nigeria. May God bless you as you take up this opportunity to help the poor and the needy.

Regards,

Mrs.Rose Johnson.

It seems someone 'remembered' me this morning as this graced my mailbox... Ah those Paraguay investment projects, they are just so darn time consuming.

I DID NOT FORGET YOU

Dear Partner,

I am very sorry for the delay in responding to your mails. I had a little internet problem but it is over now and I am glad I finally got hold of you.I lost so many email addresses but I am trying to gather as much as I can though with lot's of mix up.

I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay. Presently I'm in Paraguay for investment projects with my own share of the total sum.

Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.Now contact my secretary, his name is Richard Benson and his email address is Ask him to send you the total $350.000.00 (Three hundred and fifty thousand dollars) in a Certificate Bank Draft which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touch with my secretary Richard Benson and instruct him where to send the amount to you.

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all that we went through at that time. In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which I and my new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with him and he will send the amount to you without any delay.

Regards
Mr Philips Adams

Occasionally I reply thanking them for their confidence in me but pointing out that I have four more years in prison to do before I can help them.

Hmm

I am Mr.Smith Mbani, Director of Project, South Africa Department of Minerals and Energy. I am making this contact with you based on the Committee need for an individual/company who is willing to assist us with a solution to a money transfer. This amount $28.5m represents the balance of the total contract Value Executed on behalf of Department by a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately, of which the actual sum has been paid. Should you be willing to assist us in the transaction? Your share of the sum will be 25% of the $28.5million, 70% for us and 5% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses. To enable us commence, I will need our personal telephone/fax number. Please send your response to smithmbani11@gmail.com I await your immediate response.


Bit dodgy especially as he doesn't know his own fax or phone number! So I just sent him the phone number of Scotland Yard
