SPAM: Dying Childless Widow

I received this in my email this morning. As usual, the absurdity of the message is laughable, so I thought I just needed to share this with everyone.

I like the premise set up for this story: Christian widow, dying, child-less, trying to do good for some god-fearing person out there.

Who comes up with this?

From: Mrs. Julian David
26 Kesington Court,
London, England.


I am the above named person but now undergoing medical treatment in London, England. I am married to Mr. Jim Walter David who worked with British Railway Commission in Chelsea England for over a decade before he died on 5th of July in the year 2003. We were married for fifteen years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for two weeks. Before his death he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden and the less privileged in the society. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 10 Million (Ten Million Pounds) in a Vault with a Security/Finance House in SA. Presently, this money is still there. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next 150days due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke.

Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want an individual that will use this to fund and provide succour to poor and indigent persons, orphanages, and above all those affected in hurricane wilma. I understand 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 not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my husbands hard earned money to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. 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 in the bosom of the Almighty. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health, and because of the presence of my husbands relatives around me always. I do not want them to know about thisdevelopment. With God all things are possible.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security/Finance House in SA. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund,through my Lawyer. I want you to always pray for me. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Whosoever that wants to serve the Almighty must serve him with all his heart and mind and soul and also in truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for an individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act according to my specification herein. Hoping to hear from you.pls reply through this box.

Thank you and may the Almighty bless you.
Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Julian David(Benefactor)
