Another Internet Scam: From Mrs. Fenard Latisis

Dear friend,

I am writing you with honesty over a project I want you to undertake on my
behalf due to the deteriorating ill health (cancer ailment) which has
totally weighed me down over years. When my late Husband was alive we
deposited a huge sum of money of Thirty One Million Great British Pounds which were derived from our vast estates and investment in crude oil market with a financial firm in Europe .

Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live 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, I have decided to will this fund to you and
want you to use this gift which comes from our effort to fund the upkeep
of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically
challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely
handicapped financially.

I took this decision because I do not have trust over my relatives and
partners. I do not want my hard earned money to be misused or invested
into ill perceived ventures. I want you to stand as the new beneficiary to
the funds. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please
always be prayerful for me. Please assure me that you will act just as I
have stated herein.

Note: you are not expended to spend any amount of money in this transaction, what i need from you is your prayers and also utilizes those funds as instructed.

Yours sincerely
Mrs. Fenard Latisis
