Here’s another example of a scam letter appealing to your compassion asking you to receive a huge amount as beneficiary of a sick and dying rich lady.
RE Dearest Beloved Friend,
Please i will like you to read this mail with understanding, As you read this,I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.
I am Mrs. Rosalina Spagnolo, I am 66 years old, From Solomon Islands, and I am suffering from a long time cancer of the breast. From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and my doctors have courageously advised methat I may not live beyond the next two months; this is because the cancer stage has reached a critical stage.
I was married to late Dr. Robert Spagnolo, a contractor with UNITED NATIONS in Burkina Faso , West Africa ,where we live all our Lives for Thirty-two years before he died in the year2004.But is quite unfortunately, He died after a Cardiac Arteries Operation that lasted only for four days.
Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of $6.2million dollars with a Bank in Ouagadougou – Burkina Faso , West Africa where we spend our life together with United Nations as contractor.
Presently, this money is still in their custody, and the management just wrote me as the Legitimate beneficiary to come forward to receive the money after keeping it for so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I cannot come over as a result of my illness, or they get it confiscated.
Presently, I’m with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment. I have since lost my ability to do anything myself and my doctor shave told me that I have only a few months to live.
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested in any organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless baby’s home where I come from.
I want your good humanitarian, to also use this money to fund Musque,orphanages and widows around. I must let you know that this was a very hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue because I have no further option. I hope you will help see my last wishes come true.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority which will prove that you are the new beneficiary of my funds, and the documents concerning the deposit. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hope to hear from you soonest. I am waiting your response.
Yours Sick Sister,
Mrs. Rosalina Spagnolo
