I have email and private messages thus:
Hello My Beloved One .
I greet you with the name of our Lord Jesus
Christ, It is true that this letter may come to
you as a surprise. Nevertheless, I humbly ask you
to give me your attention and hear me well.
My name is Mrs Elizabeth Johnson from Germany. I
was brought up from a motherless babies home in my
country and was married to my late husband Dr.
Abelerd Johnson who worked with our Embassy here
in South Africa for a period of 8years before he
died. We were married for 22 years without a child
before he died in a fatal car accident. Since his
death I decided not to remarry due to my religious
belief .I am 59 years old, and am suffering from a
long time cancer of the breast which also affected
my brain from all indication my conditions is
really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that,
according to my doctors they have advised me that
i may not live for the next two months this is
because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad
When my late husband was alive he deposited the
sum of US$5.6m(Five Million Six Hundred United
State American dollars ) with a Bank here in South
Africa. Presently this money is still in the
custody of the Bank in South Africa. Recently, my
Doctor told me that I would not last for the next
two months due to cancer illness.
Having known my condition I decided to donate this
money to Churches, organizations or good person
that will utilize this money the way I am going to
I want you to use this money for Churches, Charity
organizations, orphanages, widows and other people
that are in need. l took this decision because I
don't have any child that will inherit this money
. Moreover, my husband relatives are not close to
me since I develop a Cancer problem and it had
been their wish to see me dead in order to inherit
his wealth since we have no Child. These people
are not worthy of this inheritance. This is why I
am taking this decision.
I don't need any telephone communication in this
regard because of my ill-health. As soon as I
receive your reply I will give you the contact of
the Bank in South Africa where this money is
deposited. I will also issue a letter of
authorization to the bank that will prove you the
present beneficiary of this money. I also want you
to always put me in prayer.
Please reply to me at my email address at
Any delay in your reply may give me room to look
for another good person for this same purpose.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as
I stated herein.
Hoping to receive your response soonest at my
private email address at
Thanks and Remain blessed
yours sister in the Lord,
Mrs Elizabeth Johnson

I received this same Spam message in my private TE mail on 5 October too, but only opened it today.
As I'm a moron when it comes to computers, are you able to please tell me if, by opening that message, I am opening my computer up to a virus attack?
Thanks in anticipation.
