I just received the below email. I didn't know where else to post it so thought this would be the best place. Be aware! :)
It is so sad that people try and take advantage of support groups such as this.
You received the following message from: vivian1 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
FROM: MRS ANGELA MARK.
RUE 10, AVENUE I4
LOT 88, COCODY ABIDJAN.
Dear in Christ.
PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO USE IT FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD.
I am Mrs Angela Mark from Bahrain. I am married to Dr. Mark. who worked with Bahrain embassy in cote d'ivoire for nine years before he died 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 ( 3.7Million U.S. Dollars ) with one BANK here in cote d' ivoire. Presently, this money is still in the BANK.
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 christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.
I want a church that will use this 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 my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers.
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. I know that I am going to be in the bossom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 s ays 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 healthbecause of the presence of my husband's relatives 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 BANK in ivory coast.I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because t he lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I 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 searching for a church or christian individual for this same purpose.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.
Get back to me with this email address for more details: email@example.com
Hoping to hearing from you.
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Yours in Christ.
