Scammers are, in my view, thieving scumbags who should be locked away.
However, there is more than one "class" of scammer.
The ordinary scammer who claims that you have "won" a lottery or offers you a "business" deal is bad enough, they prey on people's stupidity and greed.
However, the scammers who claim to be working for a "higher mission" such as charity are the lowest of the low. These people prey on some of those in society who really believe that they are acting in a good cause, and who are not motivated by self interest.
Here is an example of the lowest of the low, this scammer pretends that the cause is a chartable one.
Donation from Sister Faith for the Children of God.
I am Sister Faith Isaiah from Sierra Leone in West Africa but now living in Ivory Coast our neighbouring country. I am married to Mr. Isaiah a Cocoa Merchant in Ivory Coast for Eighteen (18) years before he died in the year 2005. We were married for Nine (9) years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for one week.
Before his death we were devoted Christians. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 2.9 Million (Two million Nine Hundred thousand dollars) in a finance insitute here in Ivory Coast. Presently, my doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer sickness. Though what disturbs me most is high blood preasure. Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to a church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church that will use these fund-to-fund churches,Orphanages, Research centers and widows propagating the Word of God and to ensure that the house of God is aintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this Money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my Husbands hardearned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a Situation where this money will be used in an ungodly Manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the Bosom of the Lord. I don't need any telephone Communication in this regard because of my health.
With God all things are possible. As soon As I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of The finance insitute here. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the Lord is my Shepherd. My happiness is that I lived alife of a Worthy Christian, whoever that wants to serve the Lord Must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be Prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your Reply willgive me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please Assure me that you will act accordingly as I statedherein.
Hoping to hearing from you.Remain blessed in the name ofthe Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Sr. Faith Isaiah
