My personal email receives tons of spam messages every now and then. But this particular one is different. It’s very well written that I couldn’t stop reading until I finished reading the last word.
Here’s the message:
Subject: Donation from Mrs. Sarah Dandr
From Mrs. Sarah Dandr
I pray that this mail will fined you in good health. It’s my pressure to write to you and I know that this letter may be a very big surprise to you, I came across your email contact from my personal search and I decided to contact you in order to help me carry out my wish. I believe that you will be honest and sincere to fulfill my final wish before anything will happen to me.
I am Mrs. Sarah Dandr from Serbian, I am 73 years old, I am suffering from a long time cancer of the breast, which also affected my health. From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and my doctors have courageously advised me that I may not live beyond the next few months; this is because the cancer stage has reached a critical stage. I was brought up in a motherless baby’s home, and was married to my late husband for twenty years without a child. My husband and I are true Christians, but quite unfortunately, he died in crisis.
Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of $10.8million dollars with a United Bank for Africa Accra Ghana. Presently, this money is still in their custody, and the management just wrote me as the Legitimate beneficiary to come forward to show the new beneficiary or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can not come over as a result of my illness, or they get it confiscated. Presently, I’m with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment.
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested in any organization of and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless baby’s home etc. I want your good humanitarian, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows around. I must let you know that this was a very hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue because I have no further option. I hope you will help see my last wishes come true. And i want you to please be sure that everything is handle perfect and legitimately.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the United Bank for Africa Accra Ghana. I will also issue you a letter of authority, which will prove that you are the new beneficiary of my funds. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hope to hear from you soonest I have to rest now till i hear from you soonest.
Get back only if you are interested please.Reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Sarah Dandr.
While I don’t recommend opening email messages with suspicious subjects, it’s sometimes fun to see how spammers phish for victims.
