I am a dying woman

urgent reply

Mrs. A .Fardiyah Zaini

My name is Mrs. Agustati Fardiyah Zaini; I am a dying woman who had decided to donate what I have to the Charities. I am 49 years old and was diagnosed for cancer about two years ago, immediately after the death of my husband,. I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband for the good work of God, rather than allow his relatives to use my husband’s hard earned funds ungodly.

As i lay on my sick bed, i want you to help me in carrying out my last wish on earth which will be very profitable to you. i want to WILL a total sum of $5.6million USD to you which i want you to distribute part of it to any charity home for me, please for further information contact me ASAP.

Mrs.A. Fardiyah Zaini.

I often read these scam e-mails for laughs.. and as a peek at the inner workings of the minds of my fellow humans.. If I can trust my memory, I first saw this e-mail ten years ago. Somebody must’ve clicked…

But that’s Old-school. New School seems to include a Sender named “Me”.. and Subjects like “I need a ride”…

Or come from legit-seeming services…

  1. TechPaul,

    You are correct… That woman has been dying now for over 10 years. You do have to wonder how someone crafts something like this that is obviously “out there”; HOWEVER, I guess the inner greed from people may make them respond to this dying woman’s plea…

    You really do a good service to us all by bringing this stuff forward.

    • It may just be that the *wonderful folks* who send this stuff honestly believe that Americans are stupendously dumb and always place greed ahead of any self-preservation or common sense…

      If they’re basing this opinion on American television shows…
