Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email from "Abdul Hadi", who says
"I am weeping in my heart while writting you this letter and i know you might find it very amazing, but i want you to understand that there is nothing God cannot do for any human being so long we beleive in Him. Though I am very rich,but was never generous, I was always hostile to people and..." blah, blah, blah?
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. It is so pathetically bad, it's like a really cheesy daytime soap opera. And now, poor bereaved "Abdul Hadi", needs YOUR help "to assist me communicate with the finance house to claim my deposited fund as a beneficiary thus utilising this amount to fund churches,orphanages and less priviledge around the world..." Odd that he'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust his money to, don't you think? If you fell for this scam, we honestly don't know whether to feel sorry for you or be amazed at your gullibility.
Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it.

I am weeping in my heart while writting you this letter and i know you might find it very amazing, but i want you to understand that there is nothing God cannot do for any human being so long we beleive in Him. Though I am very rich,but was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business and immediate family (my wife and two lovely children) as they were the only people I cared for.
Now, I regret all these as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world as i had also lost my family i so much cherished in the tsunami disaster in Asia as they requested that they wanted to spend their holiday with my wife's family in Indonesia.
Ever before the death of my wife and children,i was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The death of my family made me to feel much depressed as my wife who normally force me to take my medications is no more. Right now,my ailment has defiled all forms of medical treatment, as i have only God to look up to as medical experts has informed me that they have tried their best.I have been under medical supervision of Professor Roger Kirby at the above centre.
Before the death of my family at the tsunami, i had sold my company because i had agreed with my wife that we should relocate to Europe where i wanted to open up a new business and also settle down with my family.I have been donating funds to various charity organisations.Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked a member of my family who has been with me in the hospital to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organizations,she refused and kept the money to herselves.Hence, I do not trust her anymore, as she seem not to be contended with what I have left for her.
The last of my fund is the one from the sale of my company which i had deposited with a finance house $8million usd.This fund is unknown to anyone except my late wife who was my next of kin.I want you as a trustworthy and God fearing person to assist me communicate with the finance house to claim my deposited fund as a beneficiary thus utilising this amount to fund churches,orphanages and less priviledge around the world but in my family name must this generous donations be made "ABDUL HADI"Please, I will need you to assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.
I await your urgent reply.
