Scams from Widows and Orphans: Mrs. Esther Williams

Scam Money Transfers
Example -
Mrs. Esther Williams,
"Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am former Mrs. Fatima Mohammed Abdul, now Mrs. Esther Williams, A widow to the Late Sheik Mohammed Abdul, I am 72 years old, I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast."

Have you received an email from "Mrs. Esther Williams", who says "Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am former Mrs. Fatima Mohammed Abdul, now Mrs. Esther Williams, A widow to the Late Sheik Mohammed Abdul, I am 72 years old, I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast."? 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. Esther Williams", needs YOUR help to

"divide part of this wealth, to contribute to the development of the churches in Africa, America , Asia and Europe . I selected you after visiting the website and I prayed over it, I am willing to donate the sum of US$12,200,000.00, to you for the less privileged."

Odd that they'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust their money to, don't you think? With all the suffering in that part of the world, she can find anyone she trusts to give them money to that she selects a stranger at random in a foreign country. And just what "website" did "she" visit to "select" you?

Of course, it is a scam. Please don't be this unbelievably gullible. Don't even reply to it.

Dear Sir / Madam,  

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am former Mrs. Fatima Mohammed Abdul, now Mrs. Esther Williams, A widow to the Late Sheik Mohammed Abdul, I am 72 years old, I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live more than four months according to my doctors. This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

My late husband was killed during the U.S raid against terrorism in Afghanistan when he travelled to Afghanistan to monitor an Hospital / a Humanitarian Foundation (HHF) he was setting up for the benefit of the Afghan masses as of then, whose majority, and 99 percent of them are Muslims / Islamic scholars and loyalists, during the period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his businesses and wealth.

My doctors have advised me that I may not live for more than four months, so I now decided to divide part of this wealth, to contribute to the development of the churches in Africa, America , Asia and Europe . I selected you after visiting the website and I prayed over it, I am willing to donate the sum of US$12,200,000.00, to you for the less privileged.

Please I want you to note that, this fund is deposited with a Security Firm and upon my instruction, you will file in an application for the transfer of the money in your name.

Lastly, I honestly pray that this money when transferred will be used for the said purpose, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity upon vanity. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you and your family.

I Await Your Urgent Reply.

Yours Faithfuly,

Mrs. Esther Williams
