Subject: My Late husband wish fund
My Dear Friend,
Let me first of all inform you, I got your email address from a mail Directory and decided to mail you for a permission to go ahead. I am Mrs. Anna Blair from United Kingdom, married to Dr. Anthony R. Blair who worked with Texaco Oil Company in Malaysia before he died in a plane crash on his way to a Board
meeting. My Husband and I were married but without any children. Since his death I decided not to re-marry and presently I am 79 Years old.
When my late husband was Alive he deposited the sum of $11.5M. (Eleven Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Bank.
Presently this money is still with the Bank and the management just Wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the money or rather Issue a letter of authority to somebody to receive it on my behalf. I am presently in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment Cancer of the lungs. I have
since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live so I think the best thing to do is to use the money for charity purposes.
I want a person who is trustworthy that I will make the beneficiary of my late Husband’s Fund deposited with the bank so that the person can get the money and utilize 70% of this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows around the world.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact details of the Bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund.Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here in and Keep this contact confidential till such a time this funds
get to your Custody. This is to ensure that nothing jeopardizes my last wish on Earth.
I await your urgent reply.
Mrs. Anna Blair
Just stop. Random strangers do not offer 70% of $11+million dollars to others over the Internet. Yes, there are random acts of kindness. And sometimes these random acts involve large sums of money. An email or letter like this one, however, is a scam. Please don’t not fall for it.
