Another Internet Scam: From Madam Irina Thomas

Dear Beloved,

  I am Mrs. Irina Thomas  and i have been suffering from ovarian cancer disease and the doctor says that i have just two days to leave. i am from (eastern Province) Russian  but base in Africa Burkina Faso since eight years ago as a business woman dealing with gold exportation.

   Now that i am about to end the race like this, without any family members and no child. i have $3Million US Dollars in Africa Development Bank (ADB) Burkina Faso which i instructed the bank to give  it  to St Andrews Missionary Home in Burkina Faso .

   But my mind is not at rest because i am writing this letter now through the help of my computer beside my sick bed. i also have $4.5Million US Dollars at Ecobank here in Burkina Faso and i instructed the bank to transfer the money to the foreigner that will apply to the bank after i have gone that they should release the fund to you, but you will assure me that you will take 50% of the money and give 50% to the motherlessbabyhomes, charity homes. In your country for my heart to rest.  YOU ARE TO CONTACT THE BANK THROUGH THIS EMAIL ADDRESS:  ( ecobank_burkinafaso@post.com )

Yours fairly friend
 Thanks from
Madam Irina Thomas
