Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email from "Anthony L. Lloyds", who says "I am sorry to disturb you but I just finished reading your profile at the site and I felt deeply in my heart that you are that individual that i have been looking for"? 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 "Anthony L. Lloyds", needs YOUR help to be capable of handling this task for me.. 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.

Good day to you and your family, I am sorry to disturb you but I just finished reading your profile at the site and I felt deeply in my heart that you are that individual that i have been looking for and so I can contact you for a blessing that you are about to receive and also share with people that need it, my name is Anthony L. Lloyds, a British merchant in Caribbean Island. I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer, which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in caring for my health. This sickness has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have since lost my power of speech and can only manage to write now, as that has been the only way I am able to communicate. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never Generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul, so i have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. I want to believe that you will be capable of handling this task for me.
I will wait to hear from you to know if you are capable of doing this favor for me, God will bless you as you decide to do this. I will wait for your urgent response at my email address thank you for deciding to be used by GOD for this task.
