Default What a freaky email I recieved

MY BLESSINGS,

My name is Mrs. Karen Grant Smith I am a dying woman
who have decided to donate what I have to you/ church.
I am 59 years old and I was diagnosed for cancer about
2 years ago, immediately after the death of my husband,
who had left me everything he worked for.I have been touched
by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late
husband to the you for the good work of God than allow
my relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly.

Please pray that the good Lord forgive me my sins. I have asked God
to forgive me and i believe he has because He is a merciful God.
I will be going in for an operation tomorrow morning.
I decided to WILL/donate the sum of $5,500,000(five million five
hundred thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the lord, and also to
help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the
widows according to (JAMES 1:27).

At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls right now due to the
fact that my relatives are around me and my health
status. I have adjusted my WILL and my Executor is aware I have changed my
will, you and him will arrange the transfer of the funds from the Priavte Finance company to
your humbleself.

I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and
please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.
Contact my Executor Simon William with this specified Email :
clientservce@legalonline.com with your full names contact telephone/fax
number and your full address and tell him that I have WILLED ($5,500,000.00)
to you and i have also notified him that I am WILLING that amount to you for
a specific and good work. Thanks and God bless.

NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until
the task is accomplished as I don't want anything that will Jeopardize
my last wish. And Also I will be contacting with you by email as I
don't want my relation or anybody to know because they are always around me.

Regards,
Karen Grant

We quite often get these kind of e-mails and faxes at work, generally stating they are from Nigeria!

Basically they extract your bank account details out of you, and then the fun and games begin!

DELETE DELETE DELETE is all I can say!!

they usually ask for bank details so they can transfer money to your account..but dont be surprised if teh money goes the other way and they take it out

it either a prince with loads of money,,someone in africa or old people or even dead people whose money they need to claim or its lost

another one for the delete button
