The latest nigerian-type spam scam

I really like the upper case name insertion, just to improve the realism...I'm also very tempted to change my name to "Sir Jim".

From: Mrs. ROSE JIM
49 Kensington Lane,
London, W7 5DL,

I am Mrs. ROSE JIM, an Bulgarian woman who is suffering from cancerous
ailment. I am married to Sir Jim who also an Englishman though dead now. My
husband worked with the British Railways for over two decade before the cold
hand of death took him away on the 3rd of december 2004 at about 2:00AM. Our
marriage lasted for over a decade without any fruit of the womb.

My husband died after a protracted illness. My husband and I made a vow to
uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals within the
United Kingdom, Europe, North and South America, Africa and the rest of the
globe as he had passion for persons who can not help themselves due to
physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact
that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came. When my
late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 10 Million (Ten Million Great
Britain Pounds Sterling in a security and finance company in Europe, this
money is still with the security company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I
have a limited or numbered days on
earth and that my life span will not exceed 150days due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to the
cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my family, and me I have
decided to donate this fund to a non-governmental, or a non religious, and
or a non profit organization or better still an
individual, that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here
in. I want a non governmental, or a non religious, and or a non profit
organization or better still an individual, that will use this gift which
comes from my husbands sweat to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers,
orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women andpersons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially. It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this
money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I
do not want my husband hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill
perceived ventures. I do not want a situation where this money will be used
in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am
not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to
be with the Almighty when I eventually pass on. The Almighty will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not need any telephone communication in
this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my
husband relatives around me. I do not 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 security company in Europe. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the
original beneficiary of this fund. My happiness is that I lived a life
worthy of emulation. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any
delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a non-governmental, or
a non religious, and or a non profit organization or better still an individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act just as
I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you and
members of your family.


Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
