The other day I got a mail offering me some medicines whose name has slipped my mind right now, but I think it sounded like the Niagara falls.
And I even won many millions of pounds in some lottery.

Oh, I get these jokes too. And also people joking that they want to transfer tens of millions of dollars through my bank account, promising to give me half of the money. I could have been as rich as Bill Gates if I had answered to those mails...

as an Archdeacon,here in ivory coast for twelve years before he died
in 2006. We have been doing our best to promote charity work anywhere
the Lord laid us to.

I have been having Cancer and now my doctor has confirm to me that i
would not last more than 6 Months due to the cancer illness. I want to
give you this fund which my late husband deposited in the security
company to help me establish a charity organization.

My late husband deposited the consignment contained $7.5 Milion in the
Security company as family valuable treasure and the security company
did not know that the content of consignment is money. So i want you
to keep it secret with you until you receive the fund and lodge it
into your account for the purpose it made for.

Please always pray for me because i am going pain because of thecancer

Yours sincerely
