Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Thursday, October 18, 2007

This scammer is trying to lure greedy unprincipled people into his net, by offering them a chance to steal money from a "charity".

Needless to say, there is no money.

Given that most of those who respond to this are doing so with the intention of stealing the money, or "taking a dip", I have no sympathy for those with dishonest intentions who find themselves fleeced by this scammer.

Dear Beloved


May God be with you and richly bless you as you readthis without prejudice. Amen!I am Pastor David Mark, from Cotonou in the Republic of Benin and a lawyer by profession. To the Glory of God, I was priviledged to be a close friend and confidant to a late brother in Christ Rev. Jeff Ferguson, who worked tirelessly both in his private life and in the service of God in his lifetime before his devine call. May his soul rest in perfect peace. Amen!

In all my association with this late brother andfriend, this revelation, the object of this mail wasnever made known to me because the late Rev. Jeff Ferguson lived a very disciplined life. He was wealthy before he went into ministry and adequately provided for his family and also cared for people who were opportuned to come in close contact with him. However, shortly before his call to eternal Glory, he had summoned me to his sick bed and made me promise to carry out his last wishes as a trusted friend and confidant. I promised without knowing what he was about to say and also, at the time, I believed he was not going to die.

Well, he told me he had some funds which he registered with a security company as a consignment, which he intended to be used for charity, ministry, evangelical work or otherwise when he was gone, but did not want his immediate family to know about for fear of subversion of his promise and pledge to God. He then prayed for me and blessed me trusting that Iwould not subvert his pledge to God.

Before he died,he gave me information concerning the fund and what I was to do. With all due respect to him, I waited for the completion of the burial rites and mourning and other sundry matters concerning him before proceeding to reach you.

I have prayed concerning this issue for God's guidance and if in your heart you geniunely desire to use this fund for charity work in any form whether for orphanage , ministry, evangelical work or otherwise in relation to God's work, do get in touch with me and let us pray together over this before we can make further arrangements.

God bless you once again and as you receive, give God all the Glory.

You are blessed in Christ Jesus.

Yours in the Lord,

Pastor David Mark
