This is a copy of an E-mail I just got.
Dear In Christ,
I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ our Lord, I am Mrs Anna Morri from Solomon Island I am married to Mr Alex Morri who worked with Solomon Island embassy in Cote d’Ivoire. for nine years before he died in the year 2004.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians.
Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$3.3million dollars in a Bank here in Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire. Presently, this money is still in bank.Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem.
The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a charity organization that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.
I want an organization that will use this fund for orphanages, schools, churches and widows, 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 here in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.
I will also issue you an authority letter 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. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church/organisation for this same purpose. Please promise me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply.
Remain blessed in the Lord Take care,
In Christ’s Holy Love
Yours Sister in Christ
Mrs Anna Morri
Talk about taking the Lord’s name in vain.
WTF, this is worse than the Nigerian scams. They also need to work on spelling and punctuation. Now they are using Christ’s name to get money off innocent people. I was going to say dumbasses but some of the people who receive this won’t know any better. The elderly people who think they will somehow be helping someone (themselves) .
“According to information found on the Internet, this photo of Jesus Christ was miraculously materialized by Sathya Sai Baba over a computer print-out of the image of Jesus’ countenance found on the shroud of Turin (which is believed to be the burial shroud of Jesus).” I ganked this from who knows where.
“miraculously materialized” Is it just me or are people going crazy? Do people really believe this stuff?
The lady in the e-mail makes it seem that she wants the money to go to charity and then she is willing to give it to me. Give me a freakin’ break. If I ever did get that kind of money, after I bought my laptop and a large house and paid off my kid’s debt, bought a car and a boat for my son there wouldn’t be a whole hell of a lot left for charity.
Quite a few years ago I had some guy call me on the phone trying to sell me some kind of crap that you put down your toilet and it was supposed to make your septic system last longer. My neighbors (thank you very much, but no thanks) recommended my name to him. Back then, whenever I got a call from someone trying to sell me something I would tell the person that my husband was in the same business as they were. It worked every time. They didn’t know I was divorced. If it was an insurance man I would tell him my husband sold insurance. If they were trying to sell me windows I would tell them my husband sold windows.
So I told this guy that my husband was a plumber and he put that stuff in our toilet all the time. This guy wouldn’t take no for an answer. He (and I swear this is true) started crying. He started to tell me how he needed the money, blah, blah, blah. I hate being rude but I had to hang up on him. Now I wouldn’t even talk to him but back then I was more naive, somewhat. I was “drained” after talking to him.
Anyone try to scam you lately? Or ever? Share with us!!!
And if I get one more E-mail for Cialis I will scream. Why would I want that crap? Well, the wasband might. What I want to know is: Has anyone actually ever bought Cialis through one of these e-mails?
What exactly does this mean? I pity the poor guy who is always ready. That’s like getting all dressed up with no where to go.
