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. Helene Heather Thomson Sneddon", needs YOUR help:
"for the development of evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you.".
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.
USE THIS FUND FOR CHILDREN LORD

Dearly Beloved in Christ
Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am Mrs. Helene Heather Thomson Sneddon, I am a nationality of Canada, I grew up in Iraq and I am also presently hospitalized in Baghdad Iraq, due to my illness. Presently, I'm with my laptop in this Hospital, where I have been undergoing treatment of cancer for over one year.
My husband was once the Managing Director of Shell Oil Company in Iraq, where I and my husband spent most of our lives I am a widow to Late Mr. Mark Thomson Sneddon. I have served the Lord all through my life, from long time cancer of the breast to a very critical stroke. From all indications, my condition is serious and is quite obvious that I may not live more than six months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe state and my doctor has told me this The one that disturbs me most is the stroke that paralyzed half of my body.
My late husband was killed during his reign as the Managing Director of Shell Oil Company in Iraq , and during the period of our marriage we had a son who was also killed along with his father through food poison in Shell Oil Company convention of 2005 in Baghdad.
My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all His business and wealth. Presently my doctor told me that I may not live for more than six months, though I am not scared about this, I am not afraid of death, hence I will be in the bosom of the Lord forever, any time my God calls me home So, I now decided to look for an organization or an individual who is God fearing, that will use the funds for charity organization, by contributing to the development of evangelism in the world, assisting motherless babes homes and poor churches all over the world.
I selected you after browsing the Internet for this purpose and prayed over it, for the fact that I always go to God in prayers in situation like this, because He is the Alfa and Omega. I am willing to donate all the money I have in the bank, which is US$15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million United States Dollars) to you for the development of evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you.
Please note that this fund is lying with a Bank in Madrid Spain, where I and my husband deposited the funds along with our family lawyer. My family Lawyer will file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in your name.
Please, do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use, you will have a reasonable percentage of the total funds when the funds gets to your custody, before investing the remainder of the funds for God`s works.
Lastly, I want you and your church to keep praying for me regarding my health, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life, is vanity upon vanity. If you have to die says the Lord, keep fit and I will give you the crown of life.
Please include your direct telephone number where I can reach you easily, so that I can call you and have a word with you. I will plead with you to please reply this email to firstname.lastname@example.org because the one I used in writing you is not secured, so please respond to email@example.com and as you do that God Almighty would bless you. I will be transferred to another hospital in the UK today due to my critical state of health.
May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and forever more, amen.
