Another Internet Scam: From Mrs. Margaret Brown

(Dear truly of God)

I am divinely touched to offer my fortune to less privilege through you for charity work.
I am a widow and childless, as a result of my present situation, I have nothing else in mind other than to help the poor according to God's direction and wishes. By special grace of God I reached you by email because I can not speak to your understanding on telephone due to my sickness.

I am suffering from oesophageal cancer for years now and have undergone series of cancer treatments but no avail. Recently my doctor declared that I will not last forth coming month. Therefore I will offer you $8,500,000.00 US to take care of less privilege with heartfelt love of God and humanity. I decided to hand you over this money so that you will conduct vastly a charity work and dispense the money to the glory of God. I
have shorter days to live, therefore I have portioned 30% of the total money for your personal use while 70% of the money will go to the charity work.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the address of my bank Banco Santander Bank in London and will also instruct them for the release of the money to you for the charity work. But I only wished to have assurance that you will utilize the money as I have instructed herein.

This is my last wish, I grew up as an Orphan and I don't have anybody as my family member therefore I would not like any thing to jeopardise the charity project as my last wish. Please remember my situation in your daily prayers.
Hoping to receive your reply soon.
Mrs.Margaret Brown.
