Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

Subject: Dear beloved,
It is by the grace of God that I received Christ,knowing the truth and the truth have set me free.Having known the truth I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God? mercy and glory upon my life.
I know you will definitely take this as a deceptive email,becauseof the swindle news we hear everyday and now it happens am from ABIJAN it seems to happen more often.Let me first of all inform you, i got your e.mail id from a mail directory and decided to e.mail you for a permission to go ahead.I am Mrs Victoria Water from ABIJAN .I am married to Mr. williams Water who worked with Mobile company in NIGERIA for Nine years before he died in the year 2003.We were married for twenty-one years without a child,He died during one of the riots in the NIGERIA .
Since his death I decided not to re-marry.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($4.6m)with a bank in the NIGERIA and now the management of the bank have just wrote me to come forward to receive the money or rather issue a letter of authorisation to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.
I am presently with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs, I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live.It is my last wish to see that this money is invested and at the end of every year distributed among charity organisation.I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches,orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure 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 know that there are alot of poor people suffering from different kind of disease and nobody to come to their aid.With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank in NIGERIA.I will also issue you a letter of authority and certificate of cleam that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here.
I await your urgent reply.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs Victoria water
