With all sincerity and humility, it is with deep pains I write you this message of wishful assistance to my predicament, I am Mrs. Jessica Williams, undergoing medical treatment in London, am 58 years old, I am deaf and suffering from a long time cancer of the breast which also affected my brain, from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating...", "see that this money is invested to any organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless babies home where I come from"

Have you received an email from "Mrs. Jessica Williams", who says

"Greetings in the name of Our Lord dear beloved friend. With all sincerity and humility, it is with deep pains I write you this message of wishful assistance to my predicament, I am Mrs. Jessica Williams, undergoing medical treatment in London, am 58 years old, I am deaf and suffering from a long time cancer of the breast which also affected my brain, from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating..."?

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. Jessica Williams", needs YOUR help to

see that this money is invested to any organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless babies home where I come from.

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.

Scam email from "Mrs. Jessica Williams"

From: Jessica Williams [ jessicawilliams64@yahoo.co.uk ]

Date: February 22, 2008

Subject: Greetings in the name of Our Lord dear beloved friend

With all sincerity and humility, it is with deep pains I write you this message of wishful assistance to my predicament, I am Mrs. Jessica Williams, undergoing medical treatment in London, am 58 years old, I am deaf and suffering from a long time cancer of the breast which also affected my brain, from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that I may not live for the next two months, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

I was brought up from a motherless babies home was married to my late husband for twenty years without a child, who died in a fatal motor accident before his death we were true Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of $7.5million dollars with a reputable bank. Presently, this money is still in the bank and the management just wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for keeping it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can not come over because of my illness or they get it confisticated.

Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live.

It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless babies home where I come from. I want you God fearing, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows, I took this decision, before I rest in peace because my time will soon be up.

Lastly, my happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Whosoever that wants to serve the almighty must serve him with all his heart and in and soul and also in truth. Please always be prayerful all though you’re life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for an individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act according to my specification herein.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank, I will also issue you a letter of authorization that will prove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hearing from you soon.

I wait for your reply

yours in Christ

Mrs. Jessica Williams.
