Online users, beware of advance-fee emails, where the scammers who are sending the fake emails claim they are dying from cancer and want to give the recipients their inheritance. An advance-fee scam is a form of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.

A "Diagnosed With Cancer" Advance Fee Scam

Subject: Hello dear,

Hello dear,

How is everything with you today, my names are Mrs Ruth Williams 77 years old dying widow I was diagnosed for cancer for about 2 years now. I was married to a very lovely husband, he was a successful businessman before he died. Recently my doctor told me that I will not live longer than some weeks, the reason I am sending this message to you is because my health condition can not allow me to do anything again.

Can I trust you with US$ 35.4 Millionn for the good work of humanity as I decided to give it out for the poor in the society? I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly as you use this money well to give hope to the downtrodden, even if I die now my spirit will be at rest. This message is for you alone therefore, you should respond in swift because I don't want to disclose this information to another person as I work by the direction of my spirit.

I have notified my lawyer Barr Umeh Johnson to give you the necessary assistance needed for you to get the money as soon as possible, therefore, try and write him once you read this message. Lastly, you should keep this project very confidential from third-party until it is accomplished to avoid jeopardizing my effort.

Thanks and God bless.

Mrs Ruth Williams

    Here is another scam:

    "My decision to contact you is because I have been recently diagnosed with Lungs Cancer and the doctor said I have less than 6 weeks to live. Since this sudden news was announced to me, I have been reflecting over my life in the past. It is painful that after over 26 years of peaceful marriage with my late husband Malachi, we lost the only child that would have inherited our numerous wealth. In the past, I have made reasonable donations to the victims of Earthquake in Haiti and recently to the same victims in Japan and Thailand. Now that my health is gradually deteriorating, I cannot continue to do all these by myself any more.

    I strongly desire to reach out to the poor and needy people, but I would prefer to continue this with the assistance of a kind person. I want you to answer the following questions: ((1) If i donate (15.5)Fifteen Million five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars to you, will you be able to utilize it wisely to achieve my heart desire of supporting poor people around you? (2) Will you open a charity foundation in the name of my husband and i? I want you to set up a motherless babies home in my memorial when i am gone, then keep 40% for your effort. Please reply me as soon as possible."

    From: jumaalmajid.dunia@gmail.com

    Salaam,

    My Name is Sr.Juma Hammad Majid,I am from Saudi Arabia I have been diagnosed with cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for.But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.

    I would want to have a Personal and Trustworthy Relationship with you, as I intend and willing to empower the change of ownership for the transfer of my Deposits to your personal possession for further Investment and Charity Disbursement to the Less Privilege and Homeless. I have tried entrusting my funds to my relatives for charity work but they failed me.

    I will send you the photos of me and my very hopeless and selfish family a member, including my wife who I learnt is getting married to my personal friend and attorney, Thank you for your due consideration.

    God be with you.

    Yours Brother

    Sr. Juma al Majid."
