It’s been a long, long time since one of these slipped through my spam filter. (Although every now and then I root through the spam folder and yank out some listserv messages.) Look how far they’ve progressed! The grammatical errors are few and far between—for spam—but the story is exactly the same as it’s always been.
I bring you greetings in the name of our creator, it is in my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and pains taking efforts via searching i made on the internet on my bed side.
Presently, I’m in a hospital here in Abidjan-Cote D’Ivoire where I have been undergoing therapy treatment for Oesophagi Cancer.
Though its a sad and long story but I will cut it short for your quick and easy understanding. I am Janet Fernandez (Mrs), widow to Late Mr. Edward A. Fernandez, former Defence attachee to Benin Embassy in Germany. My husband was murdered in 2005 by those who are envious of his position in the same office leaving me with our only son Desmond.
Before his death we were both born again christains and because of our new fond Love in Christ Jesus we both made a convenant with God to use his wealth for the down trodden,orphanages and the less privileged in the society. Having known my condition I decided to donate part of this money to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this wealth the way I am going to instruct herein. I want an individual that will adopt my only son, use part this wealth and provide succor to poor and indigent persons, orphanages, and widows and for the propagating peace.
I took this decision because I do not my child to suffere or continue to leave in this part of the world, moreover my late husband’s relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my husband’s hard earned wealth to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do not want a situation where this wealth will be used in an ungodly manner which will be contrary to the convenant we made with God Almighty.
What is required of you is your honesty, trust and sincerity. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose.
Please reply in case you are interested on this alternative email: firstname.lastname@example.org so that i will go into details and furnish you with all further informations.
May God Almighty bless you.
Janet Fernandez (Mrs)
I can’t figure it if by posting this here I’m going to get more spam comments, or what. But Akismet has snagged virtually every single one since I installed it, so no worries!
Man, how bad would I feel is this is a real person? Maybe I should write her just in case….
