Spam Mail--Goes With Soup

From Mrs Susan Morgan

N�[38 Rue Des Martyrs Cocody
Abidjan,Cote d'Ivoire

I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Mr.Abram Morgan, who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2004. 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 Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $2. 5 Million (Two Million Five Hundred U.S. Dollars) in the bank here in Abidjan in suspense account.

Presently, the fund is still with the bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that i have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavour 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抰 have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don抰 want my husband抯 efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don抰 want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence i know where I am going. 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抰 need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband抯 relatives is 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 here in Abidjan. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the Lord is my shepherd. 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.

Contact me on the above e-mail address for more information抯, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs susan morgan..

I get spam mail like this about once or twice a week. I don't honestly know how these spammers got my email address but their misspelled and badly phrased emails make me laugh. I know that there are people who do fall for crap like this but I'm not one of them. Besides, there is no way I could pass her off as a sister or even a daughter (considering we're only a few years apart in age). The weird thing is, all the emails come from different addresses so whoever these people are, they have cornered the market on at least 50 different email addresses from three different countries.

I know they are from the same person and/or group because all the emails are exactly the same except for the name and the amount of money they want to give me. I would like to know what happens if I reply. I'm assuming they ask for my bank account number and possibly social security number then take my massive wealth and awesome identity.

Also, I don't like when people use God's name to do stuff like this. I'm pretty sure that's a ticket to Hell or at least a good smiting. I'm not at all religious but this email kind of offends me.
