Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email from "Mrs. Anita Jacob", who says "I'm a 63 years old woman and from Uzbekistan. My husband and My two Kids died in wolrd trade center on sept 11 2001 .My husband was a gold dealer."? 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 "Mrs. Anita Jacob", needs YOUR help to "help me collect the deposit and distributes it accordingly.. Feel free to reimburse yourself". Odd that they'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust their money to, don't you think?
Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it.

Friend in GOD,

Greetings to you and your family in the name of God.
In my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and painstaking efforts I have decided to seek your help in carrying out my last wishes. My name is Mrs. Anita Jacob. I'm a 63 years old woman and from Uzbekistan.
My husband and My two Kids died in wolrd trade center on sept 11 2001 .My husband was a gold dealer.
Before this happened, my business and concern for making money was all I live for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families.
I was moving with great pity and compassion that I decided to make this contribution on assisting people arround the world, I kept US8.5 Million United States Dollars in a long-term deposit account in a Finance company and it is presently remmited in a popular bank in Europe Called
Hsbc Bank as the finance company said that is there payees bank .
Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for oesophagi cancer.
I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few months to live and he has been trust worthy and jelps me in alot of things confidentail.
Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and distributes it accordingly.. Feel free to reimburse yourself when you have the money for any cost you incur during the process of collecting and distributing the money.
I will like you to reach me with your full contact information.
If you are willing to help, please reply as soon as possible. May the good GOD bless you .
