Scams from Widows and Orphans: Mrs Stella Cole

Scam Money Transfers
Example -
Mrs Stella Cole,
"Here writes Mrs Stella Cole (Phd.Msc,Fsd). I am married to Pharmacist Dave Cole an Englishman who died years ago.", "to use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially"

Have you received an email from "Mrs Stella Cole", who says

"Here writes Mrs Stella Cole (Phd.Msc,Fsd). I am married to Pharmacist Dave Cole an Englishman who died years ago."?

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 Stella Cole", needs YOUR help:

"to use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially".

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.
