This scam email has all the right ingredients to warn, even the most naive, that it is a scam:
- It mentions a bank in Nigeria
- It involves a large sum of money
- There is a widow
- The widow is dying
- The scammer invokes God and Allah
- The scammer claims that she wants to donate money to orphans and widows, be still my beating heart!
It is of course total tripe.
Please don't be stupid, and respond to this mail should receive one.
From Mrs.mariam ijaz
st. peters church ikoyi lagos.
I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Dr. Kazeem Ijaz, who
worked with Kuwait embassy in Nigeria.for nine years before he died in the year
2001. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief
illness that lasted for only four days.
Before his death we were both divoted muslim. Since his death I decided not to
re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home. When my late husband was
deposited the sum of $12 Million (Twelve Million U.S.Dollars) in a bank.
money is still under the safe keeping of the bank here in Nigeria. Recently, my
Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer
Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to charitable home or
to a reliable individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to
herein. I want a person that will use this fund on orphanages and widows
propagating the word of almighty God .I took this decision because I don't have
that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not trustworthy and
I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by them. I don't want
situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reasons
for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am
don't need any telephone communication in this regard atlist for now because of
my health, since my husband's relatives are always around me.
I dont want them to know about this development. With Allah all things are
possible. As soon as I receive your reply I will forward your personal
information to the bank
here in Nigeria.so that they will contact you as the legal owner of this fund
before releasing the fund into your account. I will also issue you a letter of
authority that will empower you as the original-beneficiary of this fund.
Delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another reliable
individual for this same purpose.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to
hear from you as soon as possible.
