Day, My name is Dr Mrs. Kate Wellington, a dying woman who has decided
to donate what I have to charity through any thoughtful and selfless
someone, I got your information while browsing through the internet,
although I am not comfortable using this medium owing to the
unsolicited emails everywhere but someone has to be used to save this
transaction. So, I honestly crave your indulgence to digest and do what
I have to say, please. I am a 59 years old woman and was diagnosed for
cancer about 2 years ago, after the death of my husband who had left me
everything he worked for. I have decided to donate from what I have
inherited from my late husband for charity through you since I cannot
do it all by myself considering my circumstances. I have WILLED/donate
the sum of $9,500,000(Nine million five hundred thousand dollars) to
you/Organization for the less privileged rather than allow my greedy
relatives to use my husband's hard earned funds inappropriately. I will
be going for an operation tomorrow morning and at the moment I cannot
take any telephone calls, however, I have adjusted my WILL and my
Executor is aware, please, you and he should arrange the transfer of
the funds from my Finance company to your humble self, wherever you
are. Please contact my Executor with his private Email:
-------------------------------------------------- BARRISTER MARK KOBI
-------------------------------------------------- With your full
names, phone/fax numbers and or your contact address and tell him you
are the one that i have WILLED the sum of $9,500,000 to, for specific
and good work. I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this
matter until the task is accomplished as I do not want anything that
will jeopardize my last wish. I will try and be in contact with you at
any given opportunity. I wish you all the best and, please use the
funds well and always extend the good work to others. Regards, Dr Mrs.

many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at
headquarters. It is 100% pure B.S. Purity Guaranteed!
There are many different types of 419 scam (examples)
but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary /
low-interest loan, lottery prize,
bargain gold dust / diamonds,
work visa, etc.) in return
for a small 'fee' or some kind of remittance. Of course, there is no
fortune, no job, no loan, no prize to be had. It's just a ploy to get
willingly send them money.
