There just has to be a sucker...

born every second.

I'm amazed that the individuals that send out the money order, bank fraud scam can be so creative.

Here's the newest installment from the land of tricksters.


From Mrs Anita Adams
N [38 Rue Des Martyrs Cocody
Abidjan,Cote d'Ivoire



ATTN:
DEAREST ONE OF GOD

I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Mr Adams Johnson,
who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast 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 Christian. 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
$2. 5 Million (Two Million Five Hundred U.S. Dollars) in the bank here in
Abidjan in suspense account.

Presently, the fund is still with the bank. Recently, my Doctor told me
that i have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs
me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to
donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the
way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund
for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavour 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 is 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. I want you and the church to always pray for me
because the Lord is my shepherd. 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.

Contact me on the above e-mail address for more information’s, any delay in
your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or individual for
this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I
Stated herein. Hoping to receive your
reply.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs Anita Adams

Now maybe it's just me, but trying to use God in this manner really pisses me off.

Please be careful, fam.

This has been my Public Service Announcement!

hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
What a clever writing style you have. I really like the way you described your not-so-loved items, and the slideshow was brillo. I saw Mud's slideshow yesterday with the spotty tights, and loved that, too.

What is amazing to me is that sometimes they work! I mean there are folks who still get caught up in this stuff...that's the sad part.

Thanks so much for the support!
