My Dear Loved one,

Calvary greetings in the name of the Almighty, Getting your
contact was not an easy task because since I am not computer
literate, I ordered an expert to seek a fellow very far away
and he went to the institute of International Business to
apply before i could reach you. I shall make every detail
simple and available to you as you progress with the work
I have requested you do for mankind

I am Dr. Magareth Arthur, married to Sir. Frederick Arthur
an Englishman who is dead; he died in a train bomb blast in
Spain when he was going for his medical check up in 2005.

When my late husband was alive he deposited a large sum of
money in an account in a Security Finance Company which were
derived from his vast estates and investment in capital
market.

Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live
due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though
what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition
to the cancer.

I need you to help me in fulfiling my husband obligation
which I am presently unable to fulfil.

I will brief you more on your swift reply to my personal
email address: magareth2007@hotmail.com

Sincerely Yours,
Madam Magareth

Conclusions

    This is only a representative sample. I also get spam from people trying to sell me Viagra over the Internet.

 These people are fakes. They will ask for a "fee". Once they get the "fee", they will simply change their e-mail addresses and look for another sucker.

 This should not be allowed to happen. The US federal government should do something!
