At this moment I want to use this funds to up-keep all widows and charities homes worldwide.

I am Abidjan, Ivory Coast from (kuwait), but work in (Lhasa) Ivory Coast, since eight years ago as a business woman dealing with gold exportation, I am 54 years old now suffering from a long time cancer of breast.

    From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and my doctors have courageously advised me that i may not live beyond the next One month, this is because the cancer stage has reached a critical stage i have only one daughter age of 16 years old. My husband died in a fatal motor accident some years back, since his death i decided not to re- marry because of my bad health. Before the death of my husband, he deposited the sum of $5,500,000 million dollar in the bank,

    I want you to assist me in order to claim the fund from the bank, the sum of Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars as my husband's foreign business partner, after you have received the Fund to your account in your country, you will then adopt my only daughter to your country for continuation of her education. Keep 20% of the money for yourself for your help to my only daughter and invest the rest of the money in my daughter's name. I believe you are in a better position to help me claim the Fund from the Bank. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank where the Fund is deposited. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here. If you are interested kindly reply immediately so I have Sworn Affidavit in your name as my only appointed Beneficiary of this fund.

    "Hi folks :)

    First of all, I apologize for my English I am not a native english speaker.

    How to begin? Hm probably you never got such a email. But first let me introduce myself. I am Lukas and I am 30 years old. I come from wonderful country in the heart of Europe.

    The first reason why I am contacting you is that I want to change my life. I am really suffering in my current work. I have never found myself in this profession. Lot of people do what they really like. They have own profession like a hobby. Maybe you are one of them and you are happy. But there's still a lot of people doing boring or stupid things they hate. It's sad but it's true. And I am one of them. I feel like a fish without water in my work. In general, it does not develop my creativity. I probably made a mistake when I decided to do what I do, but we all make mistakes, don't we?

    But it is important that I decided to change it. Change thanks to all the good people who will be willing to help.

    How? Just make my dream come true. I want to open my own literally a fairy tale hotel. Hotel where every litlle girl can by a princess and every litlle boy a prince. The hotel would serve mainly families with children. Every room, every detail will be like in a fairy tale. The main idea is that every child could experience a fairy tale in real life.

    You can help me with anything. You can just correct my text, make a donation, you can give me some nice ideas, sharing my email, sending my email to someone you know and is willing to help or anything else.

    If you decide to send me 1 euro, I'll be happy. If you decide not to help or you think I am crazy, I'll respect your opinion. There is about 7,724,054,871 humans on Earth, so every person is some way different :)

    Maybe you decide to make a donation? It doesn't matter how much. For every euro I will be very thankful. You want to send me 1€? 10€? or more? Perfect. You're nice. You want to help me correct my English? Perfect. You're nice. You want to just have a "new never seen" friend? Perfect. You're nice :))) Any help counts.

    What you will get back for it? Honestly not that much. Just good feeling. Not much right? :) But people were created to help each other. You will help me and I will help another person and so on.

    And 1 another thing you will get. Everyone who will help me, will get more and more infos about fairy tale hotel, me, my life, my childhood, my plans... It'll be like a reading a book you will never get in a bookstore. Reading book about one of the 7,724,054,871 humans on our beautiful Earth. That's what I offer. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Which people I will contact? I don't have any key. I am searching email adresses randomly.

    You can't know who you will get to know :)

    yours respectfully


    If you want to make a donation here's my IBAN:

    SK23 8360 5207 0042 0620 2415

    My health condition is very critical and the doctor told me that I wont survive this cancer I decided to contact you after fervent prayers since I do not have any child to stand in and claim it more so the bank where this funds is deposited has sent me notice to come forward and claim or send someone who I trust .

    Date: July 29, 2019 at 4:01:58 AM MST



    Hello my dear beloved.

    My private email address:

    I am Mrs. Rita k. Madine. From republic of Ireland, born in the state of Ohio USA. I am legally married to Mr. Hilary Madine., a south Africa citizen born brought up in Switzerland, I live in Switzerland with my husband for 32 years before we move down to south Africa in 1985 after my husband retirement in 1984, I am 71 years old by the grace of god. I am a god fearing person, and I am suffering from long time (illness) cancer of the breast. This illness (sickness) has troubled me for a long time.

    All indication from my doctor that my condition is really deteriorating and getting worse; and it is quite obvious that I wouldn’t live more than three months, according to my doctor and in all indication regards to medical analysis. This is because the cancer disease has gotten to a very bad stage that no hope for me to be a living person again. My dear husband was involved with the January 2000 Kenya airways plane crashed as you can see on the news line web site. (

    40 years period of marriage life, still we could not produce any child, my late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited some part of his business and money in the bank. The doctor has advised me that I may not live for more than three months and 2 weeks and warn me to stop from thinking over who is going to inherit me and the wealth. Based on that, today I have decided to donate and contribute to the less privileges, charity homes, and orphanage homes and to those displaced by wars going on in the middle-east and around the world. I made this decision after listing to the news line about 100 years old woman who secretly donated her fortune and wealth upon her death,

    I choose you after viewing your profile and I have the confident in you because I have prayed. I am willing to donate the sum of $20.5million US dollars, to the less privileged of which you will be responsible in taking care of the disbursement and sharing of this money to organizations that I will appoint. Meanwhile, you will also get 30% of the money which will be; six million and one hundred thousand dollars ($6,100,000) as your compensation for helping me fulfill this desire of donation.

    Please I want you to note that this fund is still in the bank where my late husband deposited it. I am going to advice my lawyer to change my last will to your name and file in an application for the transfer of the money in your name. Lastly, I honestly pray that this money when transferred to your account will be used for the said purpose even though I am late then or alive, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition is not always the final thing in life or death if you do not help people as well when they need it. Please bear it in mind that that all the money will rightfully belong to your name as quickly as I get your reply, and I made the promise to god that the fund will be used to help the needy and the less privilege, reply me through this email:

    May the grace of our lord the love of god and the fellowship of god be with you and your family, please further discussion contact me with my email address:

    Reply me through this email:

    I await urgent reply.

    Remain blessed

    Mrs. Rita k. Madine."

    I am Thomas James., A Portuguese national,I was browsing and I saw your e-mail, So i decided to write you if your e-mail is real, I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live. I am very rich, but was never generous; I have given most of my assets to my immediate family members.

    I have decided to give alms to charity organizations. I cannot do this myself anymore because of my health. I once asked members of my family to give some money to charity organizations, they refused and kept the money. I have a huge cash deposit of Eighteen Million dollars with a security firm in America. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. You will take out 20% of these funds for your assistance.

    I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible and treats with absolute confidentiality and sincerity.
