Scams from Widows and Orphans: Lady Mary Radcliffe

Scam Money Transfers
Example -
Lady Mary Radcliffe,
"wife of late Sir David Radcliffe, suffering from cancerous ailment without a child. ", "lmadcliffe1@yahoo.dk""
"use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, orphans,and needy financially"

Have you received an email from "Lady Mary Radcliffe", who says she is "wife of late Sir David Radcliffe, suffering from cancerous ailment without a child. " and needs YOU to help and contact "lmadcliffe1@yahoo.dk"? And what follows is a convoluted sob story of one misery after another, along with a healthy dose of gibberish, spelling errors, terrible gram, syntax and punctuation, not exactly befitting an extremely wealthy person. And now, poor bereaved "Lady Mary Radcliffe", needs YOUR help to use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, orphans,and needy financially. All you need to do is contact "lmadcliffe1@yahoo.dk". Odd that they'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust their money to, don't you think? Their own families must be furious!

Well, they would be, if any of this were real.  Of course, it is nothing more than a pathetic scam.

We call these the "Lady" scams; they all come from a "Lady So-and-so" who usually "suffers from cancerous ailment". Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it.

Dear Beloved,

Here writes  Lady Mary Radcliffe wife of late Sir David Radcliffe, suffering from cancerous ailment without a child.

My late husband deposited the sum of 15 million pounds derived from his vast estates and investment in capital  market with  his bank here in UK.

Recently, my doctor told  me that I have limited days to live due to the  cancerous problems I am suffering from.

With this hard reality that has befallen my family, and me I have  decided  to donate this fund to you and want you to help me use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the  upkeep of widows, orphans,and needy financially.

You can contact me through my personal email address: lmadcliffe1@yahoo.dk

Lady Mary Radcliffe.
