A while back I decided to allow blogger to show my e-mail address, I thought it would be nice to interact with fellow bloggers but I’m now regretting that decision. Two days after showing my mail address I got an e-mail from those infamous scammers from west Africa, at first it was amusing I have heard about them. I heard that they make lots of money scamming gullible Americans, but I’m not American so I was curious to know why they wanted to scam me. I was tempted to reply to them but I was too lazy to do it. Now they are about three e-mails per day using different aliases, the message goes something like this
I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Mr.Abram Morgan,
who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died
in the year 2004. 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 born again Christian. Since his death I
decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the
Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of
$2. 5 Million (Two Million Five Hundred U.S. Dollars) in the bank here in
Abidjan in suspense account.
Presently, the fund is still with the bank. Recently, my Doctor told me
that i have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs
me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to
donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the
way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund
for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavour that
the house of God is maintained.
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
husband?s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don?t want a situation where
this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this
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. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that
the Lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace.
I don?t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my
health hence the presence of my husband?s relatives is around me always I
don’t want them to know about this development. With God all things are
possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of
the bank here in Abidjan. I want you and the church to always pray for me
because the Lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life 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.
Contact me on the above e-mail address for more information?s, any delay in
your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or individual for
this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I
Stated herein. Hoping to receive your
Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs susan morgan
The thing that annoys me about these e-mails( besides the fact that they are using God to con people) is that it’s always the same message, do these people honestly think that I’m stupid enough to believe that five different people have all lost a rich husband due to the same circumstances and they all wanna donate the cash to the church? pfft. What an insult to my intellegence, why would they want to scam me anyway don’t they know how broke I am. Next time you want to scam someone Mrs Morgan/Davids/Daniels/Edwards/Gabrielson you must make sure you come up with a better story, ’cause no sane person is going to buy into the whole I have money and I’m dying sh!t that you are trying to sell to me.
