Mrs Julene Ellefson, Dying of Cancer, Wants to Will Her Millions to You,
So you can "use the funds well and always extend the good work to

There is no limit to the depravity that scammers will try, in order to steal your money.  This lowlife claims to be a woman dying of cancer, " touched by God", who wants to will her $2.7 million to you so that you may "for the good work of the lord, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the widows".

If that sounds even remotely plausible to you, we recommend that you give all your money away to a worthy cause today, because you're going to lose it all to a scammer otherwise.

This is called an AFF (Advance Fee Fraud).  Sooner or later, the scammers will tell you to wire money to cover "transfer fees" or "Taxes" or "death tax" and it must be paid BEFORE you receive the money (or they'll mail you a counterfeit check which will bounce.


See this page for how the scam works.
