    LOL, I love Nigerian scams.....

    my recent favorite Dearly Beloved,
    I am MRS SARAH GABRIEL the above named person but now undergoing medical
    treatment now in Europe. I am married to Dr.Gabriel Lauren Peters, AN
    EXPATRIATE ENGINEER, AND AN oil merchant / contractor with The United
    Arab Emirates for nine years before he died in Malaysia in the year
    2002. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a
    brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were
    both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or
    get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When
    my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $27.6Million
    (twenty-seven Million six hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with a
    Securities/Finance Company In China. Presently, this money is still with
    the Securities/Finance Company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would
    not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what
    disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to
    donate this fund to church or better still a worthy individual that will
    utilize the money shared to THE RED CROSS for Victims of Earthquake in
    IN AFRICA, EUROPE AND AMERICA AND ALSO USE this money the way I am going
    to instruct here in. I want a worthy individual that will use this money
    to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and
    to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to
    understand that blessed is the hand that giveth.I took this decision
    because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and I don’t
    know any of my husband relatives as we met and get married during his
    Foreign Services and I don't want my husband’s hard earned money to be
    misused or confiscated by the Securities/Finance Company In China. I
    don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly
    manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid
    of death hence I know where I am going because Naked We come to this
    Earth and Naked we most go back. I know that I am going to be in the
    bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case
    and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in
    this regard because of my health and because of the presence of the
    doctors around me always. I don't want them to know about this
    development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your
    reply I shall give you the contact of the Securities/Finance Company In
    China AND Certificate of Deposit which you will need to claim the fund
    and deposit it in your own custody. I will also issue a letter of
    authority on your behalf to the security company that will empower you
    as my only relative and the original- beneficiary of the fund which is
    deposited in Two Boxes as family Valuables. I want you to always pray
    for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that lived a
    life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must
    serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through
    your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for
    another individual for this same purpose. I want you to assure me that
    you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hear from you. I
    know my God has directed me to you through this medium. The lord will
    give you the power to accomplish this great mission he has called you
    and you will live to declare the works of the lord in Jesus name.
    Remain blessed.
    In Christ Jesus.
    Mrs. Sarah Gabriel
    NB: Beloved Make sure you reply back through my private email address
    below: Also note that this should be kept between the two of us until
    you finally have the fund in your possession and safe custody. E-MAIL I will send you a picture of myself here in the
    hospital, when I hear back from you soon with all the necessary
    documents to process the shipment of the fund to your address for safe
    keeping. Always remember that God ways is different from that of man. Do
    not let your heart turn aside to his ways because vanity upon vanity all
    THE TWO TRUNKS IN YOUR POSSESSION. When you have the boxes in your
    custody I will forward the security access code to you. If this proposal
    is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have
    bestowed in you, I await your urgent email to enable me put a letter of
    authorization to the Securities/Finance on your name as my sole beneficiary
