From Mrs Edith Stevens.
From Mrs Edith Stevens.
Dear One in Christ,
I am Mrs Edith Stevens ,from Cote D’ Ivoire .I am married to late Mr frank Stevens, who worked as a senior manager with the Ivory Coast refinary for Twenty-Six years before he died in the year 2005,after a brief illness that lasted for only five days.
We were married for Eighteen years with a son (Olah) who later died in a motor accident. Before the untimely death of my husband,we were both born again Christians. Since after his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home . When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of one Million,Eight hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$1.8m) in a General Trust Account with a prime bank in Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire. Presently,this money is still with the bank.
Recently,Following my ill health, my Doctor told me that I may not last for the next six months due to my cancer problem.The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness.Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Christain organization or someone that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein,according to the desire of my late husband before his death.
I want this fund to be used in Christain Activities like,Orphanages, Christain schools, and Churches for propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that “Blessed is the hand that giveth”. I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision.
I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that “the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace”. I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always.I don’t want them to know about this development.With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank in Abidjan. I will also issue you the documents that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the Church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and
Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.
Contact me on this email address (<i>[email protected]</i> ) as any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for this same purpose.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,



i can tell by the english grammar mistakes that it is of middle eastern descent
its a ability that i have developed over the years of internet usage

The dying cancer patient is a recent twist on the old “next of kin to the deceased” advance-fee scam. If you express interest they’re happy to transfer the money to your bank account for the glory of God. Of course in the interim a Barrister will step in to point out that the bank has transfer charges that you have to pay by Western Union or Moneygram. Sadly, too many people fall for this crap and the scammers get rich.

There’s a community of “scambaiters” that answer these with fake Internet identities to waste the scammers’ time. They appear to be making dent and ticking some scammers off, as one of the main scambaiting sites 419eater.com has been under an enormous sustained DDOS attack for a week now.

This does not belong in Off Topic Forum, it belongs in the Website Forum under Support. There is no way we can see what’s in your InBox if you don’t report it. Please PM me the username of the person who sent it so I can ban him/her.


Good One Fligh!

Awwwww yeah! Sweet, sweet justice.

Well the spam mail was an interesting read, haven’t seen a religious version before.

This would probably be believable, if the last 3 lines weren’t there. And was a public donation to charity instead of a forum PM. :slight_smile:
