This “lady” wants to use her money to do good for humanity. She sounds all good and everything… even adds in a verse from the Bible to make her sound better. Problem is, she’s a scammer. Below is a copy of the email:
I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches
Dearly Beloved in Christ,
It is by the grace of God that I received Christ,Having known the truth, I had
no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for enternal
life and in the sight of man for witness of God´s mercy and glory upon my
life. I am Mrs Lornah Hulst,age 61 and the wifenof Mr Van Der Hulst,i am
fromnsouth africa, my husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco for twenty years
before he died in the year 2003.We were married for twenty-nine years without a
My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted or 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 US $12.7M.(Twelve Million
Seven Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Security and finance Company in
Nigeria. Presently, this money is still with the Security and finance Company
and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for
the release of this money or rather issue! That somebody to receive it onmy
behalf if I can not come over.
Presently, I’m in a hospital in United Kingdom where I have been undergoing
treatment for cancer of the breast. I have since lost my ability to talk and my
doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish
to see this money distributed to charity organizations anywhere in the World.
Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my
illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to
any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect
the Funds from the Security and finance Company.
I want a person that is God fearing 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 Idon’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.I
am afraid since so many things are happening in the world now,like
hurricanes,earthquakes,bird flu and the Innocent and homeless people of the
Tsunami disaster.I just want you to be open minded and help me so that my funds
can make a great change in the affected people’s lives.
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 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
deafness and soundless voice as a result of my illness which has affected my
brain and also 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 Security and finance
Note: I anxiously wait your response.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs Lornah Hulst.
I anxiously wait your response
